      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 .

If you wish to use the Vexilar year around consider buying the Pro Pack Deluxe.

This will be the best buy an will give you the whole enchilada for winter and summer boat use. Duel transducers, wiring, mounting hardwear, plus the full Pro Pack charger system along with all the key toys you will need for winter.

I do like the Vexilar for use in all seasons. Rumor has it the new Vexilars will be more day light friendly for viewing so ask for the new style if it is now available to the public.

I just ordered the new Deluxe Pro Pack and hope to get the new upgrade from the factory rep.

This package is certainly the best buy I know of for a 4 season system.

You will love in on your boat. I have my flasher mounted on my bow and it's great, especially in the weeds where your LCD will have more problems.

I received the new Vexilar last week and am very pleased with the visibility in strong sun, much better that the older models. The appearance of this unit is the same as the FL-8 SLT just a few new tweaks internally that enhances overall preformance.

The dial is very easy to read in high noon sun in all colors, that is something considering my poor color vision. I still prefer to wear a good pair of polarized eye wear on the ice and water if for no other reason than to protect my vision an reduce eye fatigue.

I still think if you choose a Vexilar FL-8 you will be very pleased in it's all season use.

I have a "Hondex" which is the same as the Vexilar. I use mine year round and it is a great addition to the boat. My Hondex has saved me in the weeds and certain conditions when my LCD did not work properly. I have a permanent transducer attached to the boat and a Johnny Ray mount. Works slick.

    • For gills when using live bait st croix spring bobber rods. for gills and crappie when using plastics I use the snitch. for perch and eyes croxton pond rods in light to med/light   I have about 36 ice set ups but I getting rid    Of some  
    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.
