      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 .

Color point

I have a color point and the one of the pins broke on the male end of the transducer plug that goes inside the color point. I looked at it and it is easy to replace but I can't find where to buy the plug. I e-mail Hummingbird and they said they would have to fix it at a cost of about $40. Any information on where to get one?

I just went to Zercom's website and they have ABSOLUTELY NO info on the colorpoints! Its like they never existed. They must have dropped it from their new product line. I just bought one last year and love it but now I wonder how long we can expect to get parts if needed. Really ticks me off mad.gif

Boys and Girls, and all who own Colorpoint flashers. I e-mailed both Vexilar and Humminbird . I asked Vex if they had purchased the colorpoint or its tech. or had anything to do with them in the future as to service . Vexilar said " This is not true". I asked Humminbird what the status of the colorpoint was . The answer was "We are no longer making the colorpoint ,we will continue to have parts and service, we have sold nothing to Vexilar". So there it is and as a very satisfied colorpoint I am **** sad to find out that I now own an obsolete piece of equipment. I know I bought the right thing at the time now I can only hope it lasts forever. How does anyone else feel?

Thanks for the ideas I will check these places out.Does anybody know what the three different pins are for? I broke 1 of them off and the color point still seems to work ok.Are they for the different depth ranges?(I have not tried the deepest setting yet to see if it still works, but the first two work)

I love my color point and I hope that they will continue to support it.

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
