      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 .

T.V. in the fishhouse

Recommended Posts

I am looking to hook up my underwater camera to a t.v. this year and wondering what type of t.v. people use. What type of picture do you get? Do you run it with a generator or battery pack or battery? I have both a Marcum and an Aqua View camera.

I also have a Marcum camera(color), Last year using 110v power, I hooked it up to a new 20" Sansui HDV flat panel. Now I have way to many people stopping by to see it at it's best...Big screen walleyes,pike & alots of panfish. Sometimes I just watch the action, the picture is so real and clear that some people think it is a DVD. Just run cable for your TV and then to your camera(you will need 1 small adaptor for your camera). Good Luck

I am a bit jealous. With two camera's already it is hard to justify the color Marcum....but dang that would be nice. I also like the design of the color unit, it seems so much more compact. I have to say, compared to the Aquaview I like the Marcum much better. I have a lot of fun with the camera, nothing better for me then sitting in the house watching the camera and seeing all of what is down there...

I am looking for a decent TV/DVD combo for the wheelhouse. Is the Sansui a combo unit? Also, do you bring it in out of the cold to avoid freezing issues with the flat screen?

I picked up a TV/DVD/CD/MP3/Radio combo on the bay between d & f for under $100 (it's an under cabinet mount model made for kitchen applications). The screen is only 9" but you have your all in one unit right there and the size is fine, really you are only 8 - 10' away from it at any given moment anyway. Hook up the satellite dish, set up the camera in the corner hole and hook it to the AUX ports, crack a beer and let the vegetation begin!

I have 2 Sansui HD flat panel's in the house and now 1 in the fish house. The one in the fish house allow's you to slide the dvd in from the side, it doesn't take up any extra room. It stay's in the fish house 24/7...I also heat the fish house all winter long 24/7, I have a forced air furnace with 3 batteries. I also run a 36" ceiling fan which is a big factor in keeping the hole's open all the time. It set's 100 yards away on the ice from my front picture window. For security I have 2 solar polared night light's. The best part is, my decking business allow's me to have late fall day's off and all of the winter to fish almost every day. A friend of mine last year let his batteries run down and his house froze,he also has a flat panel. All he did was let it dry out for a day and it worked the rest of the season. Good Luck!
