      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 .

Recommended Posts

I just got a brand new 42 inch Samsung HDTV. The problem is i have Direct TV, and i have the TV hooked up by the coex cable, and the picture is not right. Everyone tells me that this is the worst way to hook it up? I looked at the back of my Direct TV box, and it only have the red, white and yellow, nothing else.

SO, how do i hook it up so the picture comes in clear. The TV at the store was amazing, but with the hook up that i have here, is not even close to what was in the store.

You are going to have to get an HD box from DirecTV. It will cost a little more for the box each month, but it will be worth it, I think it is like 5 to 10 bucks a month. You need to get the HDMI cables and the HD box will have those connectors on it. Once that is hooked up, sit back and watch, check out a show like Discovery's Planet Earth. You will be amazed.

That's right on the money. The old coax cable is the worst way to hook up an HDTV. In the store, they are hooked up just as mentioned. Its the best way to go with an HDTV. Another 1.5 years, and all new programs will be in HD, where as maybe 25% are right now.

FYI ~ you can find the HDMI cables online alot cheaper than they are in the store, and you won't be able to tell the difference as the expensive ones.

Good Luck!

i have it hooked up to the red white and yellow, and it still is not as clear as i think it should be, do you think the extra 10 dollors is worth it a month to get the new HD box?

Regardless how you are hooking to your current Direct TV reciever you are not going to recieve HD until you get a HD reciever or using a HD over the air anntena. Go the HD reciever route. I have Dish Network and just upgraded to the HD package and recievers, I'll never go back.

The HD boxes from DTV come with HDMI cables. SO you don't have to go buy any.

Just got mine hooked up last week, man what a difference!

Is this just a digital antenne?

Dish Network quoted me $20 extra a month for HD DVR. Sounds a little steep for the programming that is available.

I found the picture to be better with teh coax than the A/V cables on my LCD. The picture is not as crisp, but the glitchy blobs are all but gone. On a side note, the bad picture is coming from the programming. If you watch a regular DVD using s-video or A/V inputs the picture is much much better. I honestly don't know how high def movies could get much better. But I am sure someone who spends thousands of dollars will swear up and down that it is the best thing ever and how DVD's are junk etc.

OTA HD programming is received via standard UHF antennas - provided you are in range of the signal, of course.

A HD DVR probably will cost more than just a HD tuner/receiver because of the added features/convenience.

If you have a HDTV, and all you use it for is plain old DVD or non-HD TV, you are missing out. HDTV and HD-DVD or BluRay ARE that much better!!!

HD is worth it.

Until you've sen hockey in HD, you haven't seen hockey. I believe this will be the best thing to happen to the sport in a long time. It's amazing!

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      A variety.   Abu 5500c3, abu 5600 mag, revo sx, several others.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!
    • seifjr
      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.
    • guideman
      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
