      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Depth finder question

Recommended Posts

I have to ask this question just to see if it is just me or is this something other people expierence too.

I have a Raytheon 365L DepthFinder, when I use it on my local lake, which is very clear, and for the most part, a firm bottom lake with sand points and what not, I can mark fish in the water pretty good, I can usually watch the fish move from deep water in the late afternoon to the shallows in the evening when they begin to feed.

When I take the unit to Lake of the Woods, I can still mark a few fish BUT not near the numbers a person would expect, especially when your catching bunchs of fish but hardly anything is showing up on the finder. I mean we will be getting double headers and what not but not a fish is showing up on the screen?!

So I guess for the most part my question is this, Would there be something in the make-up of the lake that would cause this?

Just curious.....

There are a lot of things that can effect your readings. Water temp,Depth,cone angels, bottom hardness,gain setting, speed,suspended particals ,time of day.
Fish lay tight on the bottom to rest and because the bottom is cool. Thus making them hard to ping with your sonar. They are there you just cant see um.
