      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 .

Wireless Trolling Motors

Recommended Posts

I have a minnekota co pilot and it works very well. It is on my dads boat and i would prefer a cable foot model especially for bass fishing but the copilot works great

Thanks for the reply.

The Motor guide model I'm looking at has a wireless foot pedal that can be mounted on the deck. I was wondering if the wireless foot pedal operates reliably or has any other issues.

I don't have experience with wireless foot pedals but I do have a co-pilot which I run from a wireless remote and it works real well. No latency, no funny business. I can't speak for MotorGuide but my Minnkota is a treat. One thing I wish it had was a better user interface, as I don't know what my speed level is when turned on and have to go by feel...but thats not so bad.

There has been some nice reports on the Wireless pad. They all like htem becuase you dont have to have the key like the minn kota, and you can move the pad everywhere. Also, if they pad dont work, you can reprogram the pad so that it will work again. Its a nice setup if your looking to have wireless.

I just bought a new Crestliner that came equipped with the Motorguide trolling motor w/ the wireless foot pedal. I've only used it a few times so far because the boats only been wet three times, but I love it!
