      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 .

Z-7

Recommended Posts

My dad and I have finally got to do some real fishing out of his new Nitro Z-7. I was very impressed. We upgraded from an '81 Skeeter so anything would have been better, but I have fished out of quite a few newer, bigger boats going no-boat in tournaments so I did have something to compare it to. We were out on Saturday in the strong winds and stayed almost completely dry. I ran about 40mph in some pretty choppy stuff and had forgot to strap the rods on the front deck down. They didn't even bounce at all. I was also impressed with the trolling motor. We had a 65# MK on our 15.5'Skeeter and only went up to an 82# MG. It is not underpowered at all. I don't want to start an aurgument over which brand is better, but I'll nevere be buying a MK again. We did do some prop adjustments on the MG to make it more weedless though. All in all I am very pleased with the boat. By the way the first bass my dad caught out of his new boat went a little over 5lbs so he started out good.

We got a 150 opti on it. My dad said that he got it up to 64 mph but I wasn't with him. We had a good day on saturday, but no, it doesns't catch more fish than the old one, but it is more comfortable to fish out of.
