      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 .

Options to troll down my "big motor"

Recommended Posts

After watching hundreds of boats doing the traditional Lindy rigs with only marginal success on Mille Lacs, we tried trolling cranks in shallow water and picked up 7 fish in about 2 hrs. Only problem was my 115 will not troll below 2.8mph. I tried dragging a driftsock which slowed the speed but made steering difficult. I would consider a kicker but would rather not spend the money and add the extra weight if I don't have to, as I only occasionally troll. ANY IDEAS??

There is a perfect (and I mean perfect) solution for you and it will only cost you $40 (the price of another drift sock). It's called the lindy twin bag trolling system, 2 socks under the boat, you can read about it and see pictures on their HSOforum. Let me know if you can't find it.

I found the "Tamer Trolling System" at the Lindy site using two socks evenly spaced under the bow....looks great! Should help stabilize steering in the wind also....thanks for the tip!
