      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 .

What is the minimum depth you would expect this unit to pick up your lure in? I am totaly new to this flasher game and want to make sure I am not messing something up!!! I was out tonight and fired it up, seemed to find a good bottom but was only about 4 1/2 feet deep and even with the line in the same hole as the transducer, I couldn't see my lure? Sorry to ask such a novice question. But what conditions should I be looking for?

I have used my Marcum in 5 feet and can pick up my lure but it has to be basically right under the transducer. You will have to play with the gain a little and probably don't expect to pick up your lure at all times. For example, when I fish this shallow with a jigging spoon, I can pick the spoon up when it is still but when I jig it it will flutter out of the transducer cone and I won't be able to see it.

I feel kinda goofy using my flasher in water this shallow but once you use a flasher you can't fish without it!!

As said, the cone angle is very narrow at that distance.

You'll have to be right below that with your jig.

One tip in that shallow of water.

Use your Zoom. You'll be spreading out that viewing area over the display.
