      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 .

Time for some boat upgrades

Recommended Posts

Well, I gave the family boat a good cleaning tonight. It was kinda messy after dragging a bunch of sand and nightcrawler dirt into it at the sturgeon excursion. Sitting there looking at the boat, I decided that it's time for some boat upgrades. With tax season come and gone, I won't be in a position to be doing any upgrades this year, but next year things are looking good. Talked to my wife tonight and she was up for it too. Once you have the boss' blessing what else is left? smile Save the money and I can walk the talk.

For now it's fun to shop around. I had a chance to buy a XOG Crossover handheld GPS from Dave Weber at Pro Fishing Supply. I was very happy with my purchase and how I was treated, and I can't wait to bring my business back to Dave. I only wish it was this year rather than next. I'm looking pretty long and hard at a MinnKota Maxxum or Terova trolling motor, a Depthfinder or Depthfinder/GPS combo, and a high speed hookup for my MarCum Flasher. Best of all I know Pro Fishing Supply will have the right prices and will go the extra mile to help me get it all rigged up.

I may even go a little further and do some other installation...maybe a better audio system, self tapper screw in an equipment rack or some better night lighting...we'll see. There are lots of great ideas for me to look at in the Boats and Motors forum for the next year.

Anyone else looking to do some equipment upgrades on their boats? Now's the time to give it a whirl...We only have 7 more months until ice is here!

Got upgrades I've been planning to do but my main motor started talking dirty to me at the Sturgeon Excursion.

Not knowing whats up with the motor yet is postponing my plans for now. Toss economic concerns on top of that and I'm reprioritizing absolutely everything right now.

Terrova bow mount and Lowrance flasher/graph combo of some sort were on deck for the bow but I'm on hold for awhile now. frown
