      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 .

Battery questions

Recommended Posts

I have 2 Trojan batteries wired in series to power my 80PD trolling motor. I have been getting only about 4 good hours of power before I run out of power. I bought the 2 batteries about 6 months apart and they are the same model. I brought them in to have them checked and was told both were fine. Is there a way to test to see which battery is the problem? I have them hooked to an on board charger and after a full charge the battery indicator on MinnKota reads full charge as well.

Thanks

Is that 4 hours continuous at high power for trolling or just normal on/off at a medium power setting while casting? If it is the latter, I would say one of the batteries has an issue. I would take them in to a different place for a second opinion. If you are going 4 hours full speed then I would say that is all you can expect out of the batteries.

Another thing you can look at is what size batteries you are using. Be sure to have the 27's. I have 65pd thrust and can get more than a weekend from it if I am just casting docks and weedlines, but if I am trolling spinners on big water it will go down to 6-10 hours of use depending on the wind, and other factors. If you are using an on board charger be sure to check that one of the inline fuses isn't blown. Some models will give you a false full charge when those fuses blow.

I am getting about 4-5 hours trolling spinners on mille lacs at about 1.2 MPH. It sounds like that's about all I can expect if you guys are correct.
