      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 .

Minn-Kota Edge Trolling motor ?

Recommended Posts

woody1975

I recently put one of these on my boat and tried it out for the first time this weekend.

My question to anyone who uses one is does it hold its course?

Is there something that I can do, so that when I take my foot off of the foot control it will stay the course?

At this point, I would get it going in a direction that I wanted to go, then I would take my foot off of the control. A second or two later, the foot pedal would move on its own and of course turn the boat.

I have messed with the tension screw a bit, but haven't found a sweet spot yet.

Do I need to keep trying or is this something that I need to be in control of at all times?

Thanks for any help!

That is the deal with a cable steering bow mount trolling motor. You have to steer it all the time.

I hate to tell you but if you wanted a motor that keeps same direction you have to get one with Auto Pilot, yours is a cable operated you have to keep it on course all the times.
