      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 underwater camera to buy?

Recommended Posts

I have a flasher and love what I can do with it, but I want to look into underwater cameras. Either the marcum cameras or the aqua vu cameras. I saw that marcum made a camera for 159$ the vs 250. This is in my price range and I was just wondering if it is worth the step up in price to go with the aqua vu scout II. The scout 2 has spectral response and i was just wondering if this makes that much of a difference.

Thanks

my buddy just bought a aqua vu off of ebay normally 400$ and he got it for 200$ somewhere out of cross lake minnesota, he said they had alot more, and he loves it, for that price it's worth it...i think it would be a good idea to look into it, I AM!

Yes i fish some stained water. I actually live on the Mississippi so it would probably be a good idea to go with the aqua vu i guess.

That is the camera I bought. It is a little higher priced than the vs250 but I would think that the two should be comparable. I have used when water clarity was only around 4" but when I dropped the camera I could still see probably around 10' which I plenty far unless you are doing some serious searching without trying to catch them at the same time.

I should also add that the camera/monitor quality I almost not camparable to an aqua vu. If you have a chance to look at them head to head you will definitely see the difference. A+ for marcum if you ask me.

I have yet to see a camera that works good in stained water. I have a ZT Aqua vu, and really like it. It is not large and bulky like the units with the crt monitors. As far as the lights go, once again, I have yet to see any that work that great. They are real good at illuminating particles in the water but other than that, so-so.
