      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 .

The trollmaster will have a remote that lets you control the speed of your boat from the console. All you have to do is put the motor in gear and the trollmaster does the rest. I have one on my T-8, and it works great. I use it all the time for trolling.

You'll most likely want the pro2 with the TM208D. This is very easy to install, takes a bit of tweaking to get it dialed in to offer the best range of speed, but simple if you take your time and follow the instructions.

I use mine more often than not, it really helps to replicate your trolling speed reliably and offers you better overall speed control.

Trollmaster 3 is the same as 2 with the ADDED feature of steering control. They are intended to be linked to a panther steering unit. I hear they are painfully slow.

The pro2 are retailing now for $270. I see they raised the price recently?!

I would have the dealer put it in if they will do it for free. It's not hard to do, but if it's free why not. If you have the bar connected to your main motor that is all you will need to steer your boat.

I am thinking about getting the trollmaster for my Yamaha T8 which is set up tiller style. If I do, I am going to put a steering rod connecting the big motor and kicker that is detachable so I can run the kicker as a tiller or remote steer. I have never used the trollmaster, but have heard they are the cats meow!!!!!

I put a digital trollmaster 2 on my 22' offshore with a honda 8 hp high thrust kicker and it is awesome. The throttle control is so precise it is unbelievable. I also have the ez-steer to the main motor. I could never go without it now that I tried it.
