      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 .

Marine Electrical Work

Now that the ice has arrived, it is a perfect time to have work done on the old boat. I guess. We have a '96 Ranger Fisherman that is having electrical problems (ie shorts on some accessories). Does anyone have a referral or recommendation for an experienced and reliable mechanic or electrician who works on boats? Thank you, and Merry Christmas!

I'll give another second to Actions Fishing for boat electricals. He came through for me when I needed new guts for my Zercom LCF-40. Just "happened" to have an LCF40 circuit board and LCD lying under his bench. Too bad - I think I killed the LCF40 again on the first outing this winter. Good luck!

Bad News! Jack and Action's are not doing any electical or mechanical work unitl March! They lost their lease on their shop, and are too busy at the bait shop to take on any work. Any other referrals would be greatly appreciated. I would really like to get this thing resolved well b/4 the opener. Thanks!

I owe Jack at Action's Fishing a HUGE APOLOGY. I misunderstood what he told me. Please be advised that Action's DID NOT LOSE THEIR LEASE. I am sorry if my last post caused any confusion.

There's another place called Fish 'Lectronics in Columbia Hts on University Ave you could try. I've never been there, so I can't vouch for them.

A few years back I had to fix the cable for my Clearwater Classic (before FL-18). I went in and they took care of it on the spot and I fished with it that day. I also purchased my LMS-320 from them the year before last.

Are you having problems with locators, or is it in the boat wiring? For boat wiring I would go to Frankies in Chisago. It is a drive but for my guide boat, I'll trust those guys.

I have had them install electronic items for me, and they done great work.

Frankies also sells Rangers, so if there was a problem for the wiring in the boat they may seen it before or have access to the people who know. Sorry I lost my faith in Crystal marine, to many issues to list.

Thanks for all the recommendations! It's really helpful! The problems mostly seem to be with accessories in the dashboard and the aireators (sp?). Thanks!
