      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 .

Getting rid of old gear?

Recommended Posts

So, I have a question. When I purchased my boat it had some electronics on it. I wanted to upgrade it, so I did. Now, what to do with this stuff? It all works, not the greatest shape. I can't seem to find values on any of this with no one selling any thing like them. One is a Lowrance global map that needs to updated(not sure the number on it). One is a lowrance fish finder, don't know the number on that one either. The screen is black and white with a yellow back lite that kinda flickers. The factory radio I might just throw out. The knobs on it stick and I am not sure if the tape deck even works.

Would it be best to put it on the for sale thing here, or hsolist or pawn shop?

you can check out hsolist, you might be suprised at the prices you get. I've sold 3 depthfinders so far on hsolist and have got top dollar every time. Often, the bidder already owns the same model that has issues and doesn't want to replace the other wiring/transducer on a discontinued product.

I checked out hsolist, not really interested in setting up a pay pal account, and I own no credit cards and have no idea where to price these things. I searched hsolist and found nothing that I have. They cant be that old off a 2000 crestliner unless the previous owner put some stuff he found on there.

Your not sure what the model number is because you can't remember or all the markings are rubbed off. If you find the numbers you should be able to google it to find possible values. Or if you aren't sure, just put a dollar value or best offer on it and post it this site or craigs list - if no one bites just keep dropping the price until it sells.

I would do the same thing as NCLaker mentioned, if you can't find a value for the units, just put a price and them and keep droping until someone buys them.

You MUST take pictures to post on either craig's, or hsolist if you want to have any chance at all of selling them.

Craig's also has a "free" section if you feel generous. You could probably get by without pics if you listed them under the free section.

Since these items dont have much value anyway, why not give them away to a friend, or someone in need of these items! If you dont know of anyone give them away here on FM, there are plenty of people in need of cheap items on this site. You wont be out much, do to the items value of maybe $20, and you wont have to worry about trying to get rid of them and the items going bad in a day or two and having someone mad that they got ripped off. And you will get the good feeling inside that you have helped someone, and you never know, the person that gets it just may end up being a new friend!

Okay, so I figured out what models they are. One is a globalmap 2400 with the external lgc12w ant. and the other is a X85 fish finder. I can not seem to able to find any of these for sale. Anybody able to find values on these for me? I know the X85 is probably not going to get me anything, but the 2400 should be worth something. I am trying to save up some dollars to get a bimmi top for my crestliner or even some down riggers.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
