      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 .

Livewell Pump

Recommended Posts

The Rule livewell pump in my boat stopped working last week in the middle of vacation. I pulled the cartridge yesterday and cleaned some line and sand out of the impeller. It ran after being cleaned.

Now that I know how easy it is to remove the cartridge I'm wondering if this cleaning is a long term fix or if the pump will fail again soon because of damage done by the fishing line?

Does anyone have any experiance with how long a pump may last after being frozen by line and sand?

This is my second run in with fishing line this year, earlier I picked up about 50 yards of it behind my trolling motor prop. Please put trash line in your pocket or tackle box don't let it blow out on the water!

No idea how long it will last. Does your livewell intake have a threaded -on screen on it? They're pretty cheap and do a good job of keeping the bigger chunks out of the pump.

You should check your fuse for your pump, before it burns up the fuse should pop.

We go through about 3-4 a year total between 15 guide boats running most days.

If you are concerned just buy a replacement pump and throw it in your boat glove box. If it breaks on your next vacation, you will have a spare.
