      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 .

Minn Kota Maxxum

Recommended Posts

I was looking for feedback from anyone who has used the Minn Kota Maxxum foot controlled trolling motor. I have decided to give my auto pilot the boot due to lack of durability and the screwing around it takes to put the thing in the water. I fish mostly big water and need something that can handle a modest beating from the waves. Does anybody have anything (good or bad) to say about these motors? Any other bow mount motor brands to recommend?

The Maxxum is an excellent choice. The 74 pound with 60" shaft will suit just about any need in terms of walleye fishing. Plenty of power and they won't suck down a full battery charge in a day. One small negative is that you have to keep your foot on the control in rough water to keep it on the course you want.

I've got a hand control that I find to work very well while walleye fishing in heavy wind. If I'm bass fishing I would prefer to have the foot control.
