      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 .

Battery Powered Bowfishing Setup

Recommended Posts

Has anyone rigged up a night setup that runs on battery power? How did it work, did you have enough light? I don't get out often enough to justify a big generator setup, just wondering if anyone has tried it and what kind of equipment they used.

I am working on setting up my boat with 6 50W LED lights and plan on running them from 2 deep cell batteries. The lights and batteries are not cheap but less than a genny set-up. Should be plenty of light from what I have seen on other sites.

I've never used leds and don't know much about them. What I've seen on another site is that more and more people are switching from halos and hps light to leds.

I see some of these carp setups with monster work lights and gas powered generators and always wonder why they are not using LED's??

Seems like a no brainer, especially for short distance "flood type" beam.

I used a power pack and a 1,000,000 candle power spotlight. I already had both, so it didn't cost a dime.

I'm looking to do the same thing on my boat John. I have two Halogen lights on the front of my new rig now that will run fine off the battery power I have, and will be looking into getting a few more depending on how well they work, maybe even going the route of LEDS. You will have to come down here next week for a shoot, from what I have been seeing while out panfishing there will be some excellent shooting during the sunshine hours in this area. Many bowfin laying the tops of weeds shallow that aren't spooky at all, and more buffalo than I could count schooling up as of last week!!
