      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 .

Advice Needed...

Recommended Posts

Quick question for you experts...

I am heading to NW Ontario next week and we are pulling up our own boats. Mine is small, 14 foot Lund WC with 25 HP four stroke. We are going to be camping with some Canadian friends. Here is my dilema: Should I bother to bring the trolling motor and additional battery required to run it? ... Knowing that I wont be able to recharge it once it goes (we will be there for 4 days) Or will I be fine just using the big motor to idle around, troll etc... When i have been to Canadian lodges, the guides usually dont use trolling motors so maybe i dont need mine...

Any thoughts or suggestions welcome. Thanks for the help!!!

Might not be a bad idea to bring it. Only use it when needed though. Such as when you are drifting to get back on line ect... But your four stroke will do the job.

I know when we're in Canada without the trolling motor (a few dead batteries, undercharged, etc.) we do a lot of cursing. As long as you don't have to carry it on your back, I'd bring it if I were you. smile.gif

You could probably get by with out it. But like fishinfix mentioned, just use it if you really need it. I've pulled my own boat up to some Canadian lakes while truck camping. I've caught tons of walleyes in 6-8ft of water with the motor running. I would say the trolling motor is ideal, but your 4 stroke shouldn't bother 'em too much.

Good Luck!

I agree I would rather have it and not use than wish I had brought it. I would try to use sparingly as suggested for staying on drift lines rather than trolling.

I had the same problem for a while. I then put in a on board battery charger and bought one of those little honda generators. The generators are very handy to have when out camping and ice fishing etc.
