      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 LCD Fishfinders

Recommended Posts

MercMan

Hi to all. Love this site. Lots of good stuff in here. Does anybody out there have any experience with color fishfinders such as the Lowrance X-67c, X-100c, LMS 330c, Garmin 250c, etc.? I'd like some feedback on how good they work and if they're worth spending the money on. I also don't want to spend a grand or more on one. If they are not the greatest right now, I'll stick to the X-51 until they improve. I sure like the color on the Vexi compared to the old style shades of grey. Thanks for the feedback. Bring on the opener!

MercMan,<BR> I recently purchased a Garmin 320c and even when the fish aren't biting this thing is just fun to drive around and look at! Haven't used it a whole lot yet, but in the little time i've used it it's REALLY impressed me. A friend and I were out on Lake of the Woods and I marked two fish, classic marks just like you see in the instruction booklet, and about 5 seconds later I hooked into about a 14 inch walleye and my friend did the same-doubleheader! It's a very easy unit to read and use, if you buy one you won't regret it. Mine retailed for $800, but it's just a matter of time before these units are pretty reasonable. With GPS, a unit such as the Garmin 320c, and a Reel-Bottom map, you can fish in productive water continuosly-it makes for a pretty deadly combo.<P>AJWALLEYE

I wonder if you can notice how much more power a color unit uses rather than a greyscale unit. Does it use up a lot more power............or just a little? I have a Lowrance 100c, have not been able to use it yet.

Little Ranger,<P> I think the amount of power the color LCD units use compared to the black and white is negligable-it's not much more I don't beleive.<P><BR>AJWALLEYE
