      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 .

Need help finding an inexpensive depth finder...

Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy a new depth/fish finder for my fishing boat. I am just looking for a basic unit, depth being the most important feature, but if it reads fish that would be good too. Cost not a huge issue but I do not want junk.

Any fisherman's input would be great! Any ideas?

I have a basic unit similar to lowrance x50 that I use in a canoe and it does the job just fine. The x50 is 119 dollars. Of course there is a slippery slope of "for just a few more dollars..."

i saw an eagle cuda ( i think that's the name) at Fleet Farm for $68 on sale today. It by no means was anything fancy but i'm sure it would get the job done fine. It had about a 4" black and white screen, read depth, showed fish and i think it had temp reader but i could be wrong. Anyway it was cheapest they had, i almost bought it myself, still may.

I have a pirrhana 2 same thing as a cuda with no temp it is very reliable for depth and cheap too. Also it seems to be durable as Ive had it on my boat uncovered outside for seven years and it worked just fine today and still looks like new.

I used my Eagle 320 for the first time this weekend and I was very happy with it. I went from the Cuda 168 to the 320 and it was a night and day difference.

I bought the Cuda 168 to put in the front of my boat to give my son something to do. I like it alot and am a little jealous. I had problems with it and being a LEI company, they took great care of me. For the price, it gets my vote. I would have put my Marcum up in front but it was cheaper to by the Cuda.
