      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 .

520 or a 522 are pretty popular options for sonar/gps combos. They are reasonably priced and work pretty well, taking both Navionics and Lakemaster chips. How much money do you have burning a hole in your pocket. Bigger is better in most instances, but it all depends on your budget.

If I were to go out and get a new Lowrance, I would get 112c or a 37c with the broadband sounder unit. LB

I've got the 522i and have enjoyed it so far. Make sure you update the software on the unit as it makes a big difference in losing bottom...The option of networking unit's is also a nice feature with Lowrance. Good luck!

I don't think I would get the HD. I'm not totally up on it but I'm not sure it gives much more than what the chip does unless you travel to many states. I would go no smaller than the 8" and if it's in the budget and it will fit on the dash, go BIG.

Given what you're looking at, I like the 37. I agree with mnfishinguy, no need for the 38 HD in my opinion unless you do a lot of traveling around the country --- use LM or Nav chips in the 37 and you should be good to go.

Regarding stepping up to the 112, it's a lot more money and the screen on the 37 is so big already I'm not sure how much more benefit you'd get by going to the 112. Plus those big units really put a pounding on their mounts when you're bouncing around --- regardless of which one you get, make sure you use a big RAM mount for it.

Are you just going with 1 unit or are you networking multiple units together?

    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance

    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks?
