      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 .

Humminbird Side-imaging and ice fishing

Recommended Posts

has anyone heard of this being used? I just wonder about if it is possible, and how effective it is for locating structure. finding weedlines and other points would be so much quicker in theory because you drill one hole, could look 360 degrees 150 feet out and look for fish/structure, gps it, and drill over the top of what you want. I have been trying to justify the price of one of these units, and using it year round would make me feel a bit better. no doubt i would not give up my flasher, but for search and destroy missions, this would be awesome. (if it worked of course!)

If what you said above is done, you will only get a blurred image. You have to be moving forward to get a good detailed image of contours on your SI. You can get an image sitting still, but the sonar is what I look at when sitting still.

IMO, the sonar/flasher feature would be the only reason I would even think of using my Humm. SI unit during the winter months.

I am just going to keep my Humm for the boat and LX-5 for the ice.

Good luck!
