      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 .

On these new cell phones u can watch tv on them. Is there a way to hook a razr phone to a tv. Thinking that would be a good way to watch tv while ice fishing

Not much help but I doubt a Razor would have a TV Tuner Card in it!

If you have a good data connection a Slingbox could be an option if you have the right phone. If you don't have an EVDO data rate it's not worth trying since you need a fast data rate to keep the picture smooth. The screen isn't super large of course, but it would be an alternative. There isn't a way to connect a cellphone to a TV yet...but I hear there is something coming.....

I doubt there is a TV tuner card in your phone so no video out.

No you can't do that on your Razor.

Verizon has two Samsung phones that are capable of receiving their TV programming. They currently have 11 channels. More phones coming in the future. Only problem is that you need to be in EVDO reception area which is the immediate Minneapolis area, nothing outstate.

You can however take any video, DVD etc and convert to 3gp or 3g2 format and then save it to a microSD card and watch on your razor.

I currently have a bunch of fishing, tv, comedy videos on my phone, including entire movies like Napoleon Dynamite, and episodes of King of Queens etc.

Google "Howard Forums" and learn everything you would ever need to know about cell phones.

Although if you went that route and Ipod, mobile DVD player or simuliar device would be a better option in my opinion.

Oh great.... one more means by which drivers can be distracted - watching TV on their cell phones....

"But Officer, I was trying to watch the traffic report so I could avoid the jam. I didn't mean to cause this one."

Mind you, I'm not saying YOU will do that, it's just a general comment.

I have Sprint TV on my Palm Treo. It is not all that great. It was cool at first and the NFL network is nice during the fall out on hunting trips for keeping up with fantasy players, but that is about the only time I use it.

Bush-

Do you pay extra for the Sprint TV or is that included in the data plan?

I appoligize, I totally misread your question.

I doubt highly that you could get a signal from your phone to a TV.

      I went out for duck opener near Milaca and it was sweltering HOT.  It was even cloudy/drizzly for a portion of the morning and it was still unbearable.  The DNR needs to move all these major hunting season openers back a week.  Its pretty obvious that fall is getting hotter and hotter.  We got 6 ducks and 2 geese but so it was at least a somewhat decent hunt but that didn't make up for the fact that it was like hunting in Louisiana.

      +1 on the Smooth Moves.  I installed them on my 1860 Ranger last spring and couldn't be happier with the performance in big water.  Lot's of adjustment and they do a great job of soaking up the rough stuff.  They are a little bulky compared to the other options, but I like the fact that they rely on a mechanical adjustment rather than air.  It would be interesting to sample them side by side in the same boat to really see if one is smoother than the other.  A friend of mine has the Wave Pro and he is happy with that also.  I was close to getting the air wave, but I'm happy I went with the Smooth Moves and would buy them again over the other two.  Good luck with your decision.  No matter which way you go, your back will be happy!

      I am still fishing mostly lindys with minnows but getting a few on jig/minnows also. We boated 13 walleyes and 7 jumbo perch this morning. Largest walleye was 21" . Most came out of 24' to 38' depths, close to rocks. Cliff

      Fished Saturday morning and trolled my way a half dozen eyes including a fat 26” plus two giant smallmouth.  Went back out Saturday evening put the trolling rods down and went Jig rappin.  Caught another 6-7 fish including another nice 26+ that popped off as I fumbled to grab the net as it wallowed around next to the boat. Tricky bite for me.  Still managed my limit of nice 16” fish.  Fishing mainly rock transitions and rock structure in 16-22’ fow.   I will be back in two weeks for my final hurrah before heading west to the mountains.

      One goose and one woodie so far today.  And will probably be our total count.  Saw plenty of birds but in a new spot we didn't have dialed in until the end of the morning flights.
