      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 .

Got really lucky on an Aqua-vu sale today

Recommended Posts

For the last couple of years I have been eyeing the Aqua-Vu ZT series underwater camera. Retail of $399-499. I was at skeels this morning at 7am, and when I walked upstairs the first thing I saw was on single aqua-vu zt sale priced at $149.00. I had the fiancee stand guard while I checked to make sure that price was right, and it was since they discontinued that series. Something to be said for right place right time today. Now all I need is some fishable ice.

Nice find. Let me know how it works. I was thinking of getting a camera this year, but bought a lx5 instead.

a camera isnt all its cracked up to be. bulky, not exactly as easy to use as a flasher, take a long time to get adjusted to what you want to look at, but at the same time if you have extra time on your hands it is pretty neat to see the structure your fishing around.

john that lx5 was a worthy investment. it is a sweet unit and far more valuable than any camera. Have fun playing with it in the coming weeks.

I have both a flasher and a camera. Unless I am fishing suspended fish, I would absolutely rather use the camera. With the marcum 560 you have 360 viewing and it really doesnt take long at all to set up.

One example where the flasher could let you down: say you have spaced out weeds and one that is directly below your hole that is two or three feet tall. The flasher will tell you its there, but if you set up above the weed you will be further off the actual bottom than you want to be (or be set up in the weed). This example might seem far fetched but it has happened to me more than once. A camera also give you a better idea on how your minnow is doing on a still line.

Flashers are a great tool, and I use mine a lot, but I think a camera give you a better idea of whats going on down there. I can say having a camera down while using a flasher has really helped me have a better understanding of what im actually seeing on the flasher.

I've already used it in the boat and it was awesome. It's nice to zoom to the bottom, I like it very much. Now I just need to deck out my fish trap pro and I'll be all set.

      I checked a small lake in Arden Hills after work yesterday. Measured 3-4”. Should be ready for me to actually fish next time.
