      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 .

I am finally going to break down and but an underwater camera! 80% of the time it will be used on Mille Lacs. I am looking for input on what would be my best choice.

I just got mine last year. Just a cheap aqua view. And it works great! It may not be as nice as the higher end modles but it does a great job for the buck.

There is nothing like watching fish TV, and you are the host! You will be amazed at what you will see and learn. You will be glad you made the investment.

Another vote for the 560, it is great. I like the picture and even in darker situations it is nice.

I purchased a 825c it is great in water 18ft or less. I had a faulty camera within the first week. Marcums customer service is much better then aqua view. if I bought another it would be the 820 it sees much beter in deeper water. the flat screen is the best around well worth the price. nice not to have a sun shield.

I'd debate the Marcum vs. Nature Vision (Aqua View) costumer service comment Cedarcreek. I've seen examples to make me believe the opposite.

Thanks everyone for your input.

I am thinking about the marcum. (I have a LX5 and really like it) what I am trying to decide on is between the 560 and the 820. I would like to use it for open water also.

pro's con's of each?

if you are going to use it during the summer you might want a sun shield so you can see a little better. but i'm not sure if either of those have shields.

I've had my 560 for 3 years now. And, this season have been using the 825c. If Marcum combines the flat screen daylight viewable monitor with the panning camera, that will be perfect! I am very spoiled with the auto panning of the 560 but, the 820 series has benefits, too.

Here's a Close Up Look at the 560. Maybe there will be some info to help you decide.

Thanks everyone for your input! I have decided to go with the Marcum VS380. It doesn't have some of the options of the 560 but it has what I feel I need.

im still using the OVS300, one of the first to come out. technology has improved the packages but this one has worked just fine for me. the reason i got it was because the place i bought it allowed me to try 4 different manufacturers cameras in their minnow tank. the OVS300 had the best picture. it was also the most compact and lightest.

just heading out to minnetonka now to try for the walleyes.

regards,

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

      That's correct.  For now.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!

      Any where from 12' to 30' humps. Bass and a few walleyes setting up on top and sides of these humps. Cliff
