      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 .

Anyone ever break the trandsucer of their boat in rough water??? I did yesterday on Mille Lacs and it wasn't even that rough. Am I the only one this has happened to?

You had to have hit something, or the plastic is old and brittle. I was in 5ft whitecaps on Superior and mine is still in great shape.

I agree with davesfriend, you must have hit something. Or, that was some really rough water grin

I had mine break on me once for no reason. A floating log or something could have taken it out. But dont think I hit anything since I was going real slow on a shallow lake on a calm day that I had never been on. I epoxied mine back together and it held for a few trips before my boat was totalled.

I agree with everyone I think something must have been floating in the water. When we got to the spot my depthfinder did not work my brother looked there was nothing but a wire tail and a bracket. Really odd I thought.

I broke off a transducer one time on what looked like a whippy little willow branch floating in the water, it wasn't very big at all and I was right on top of it before I ever saw it.

This doesn't count but I took one out when I launched the boat too shallow and it sheared off on the concrete ties on the landing. It took me awhile to figure out why I wasn't getting a signal when I got out on the water. The worst part is that there were witnesses. blush

Defective casting maybe, I've never broken a Transducer, lots of props and skegs but no transducer. blush

I always keep mine loose enough to flip up, Lowrance and Eagle. grin

It is a three year old hummingbird. I cant believe that the casting was old maybe defective. Either way this week I will have to make a trip and get a new transducer.
