      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Humminbird®'s ICE-55 Flasher Garners ICAST Electronics Award

First LCD Display on a Flasher and 6-Color Palette Impress Judges

EUFAULA, Ala. (July, 2008) - Humminbird®'s new ICE-55 Flasher captured Best of Show honors in the Electronics Category at the 51st annual International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST) show held in Las Vegas, July 16-18. The New Products Showcase competition drew 695 tackle and accessories entries. Entries were judged by buyers and media representatives based on innovation, execution, workmanship and practicality.

"As we prepared to enter the ice fishing market, it was critical in our mind to offer real innovation in the category," Humminbird Senior Brand Manager Jeff Davison commented. "We spent 2 years working with some of the best anglers on the ice to understand how they use flashers, and what features they would want if they could build their own. This is not smoke and mirrors, the new features on the ICE-55 Flasher give anglers a competitive advantage and are exclusive to Humminbird."

Among the never-before-seen features in a flasher on the ICE-55 are a 6-color fiber optic display and a groundbreaking, exclusive LCD display.

Prior to the ICE-55, LCD displays were non-existent in extremely cold conditions. However, Humminbird's LCD screen is engineered for peak performance in temperatures as cold at 20-degrees below zero Fahrenheit.

The LCD display also allows the ICE-55 to automatically adjust the depth scale, eliminating the guess work and estimation of depth scale overlays. Based on depth scales ranging from twenty to two hundred feet, the LCD display instantly shows an exact depth reading as a large, easily visible number, rather than a tic mark.

The 6-color fiber optic display on the ICE-55 Flasher gives ice anglers a greater distinction between targets in the water column. This gives ice fishermen the ability to distinguish between a weed shelf, school of baitfish or a trophy fish. However, if a more traditional 3-color display is preferred, the flasher also has two, 3-color palette options. ICE-55 users will also notice the model's unique purple target line. Ice fishermen can set the target line at a specific depth so they know exactly what depth they should lower their jig.

A dual beam transducer (selectable 9 or 19 degrees) that allows the flashers to double the view of a specific depth range in the water column is yet another innovative ICE-55 feature. Other flashers only allow users to zoom in on the very bottom section of the water column. When ice fishermen press the zoom key, two tic marks bracket the area to be zoomed by 2x on the flasher display.

"This is the second time in three years that Humminbird has captured the ICAST Best of Show award in electronics," Davison said. "This demonstrates our continued commitment to innovation and our desire to lead the way in providing anglers with state-of-the-art products."

In addition to the ICE-55 Flasher, Humminbird is also introducing two other models (ICE-35 and ICE-45) to fill out the product line.
