      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 .

Questions on Vexilar and transducer angle

I was looking at the new FL18 package offered by Vexilar and had a couple questions For walleye Fishing which angle is preferred by most. 12 or 19. Second question does anyone have trouble reading through ice to locate depth and fish with their Vexilars?

I suggest getting the dual beam 9/19 degree transducer. Then you can have the best of both worlds. I leave mine on 19 most of the time, but there are times where it is nice to have the focus of a 9 degree. I go nine degrees in deep water (sometimes), sharp drops, or when fishing next to someone in a house. The nine degree cone gives you less of a dead zone on sharp breaks, and can make it so you dont see your buddies lures when fishing in a perm shack.

If I had to decide between the 19 and the 12, I'd probably take the 19.

I have no trouble reading through the ice. I carry a bottle of water and put the transducer on that. I can see weeds and fish through the ice, no problem. If the ice is very rough and the transducer does not have a good contact patch, it will be harder to get a good reading.

I also went with the 9º/19º Ducer.

When I fish crappies in 40' (30' down) of water and there is some else fishing with me I use my 9º almost all of the time.

I like to use the 19º when I'm fishing in water about 20' and shallower. Whether I'm fishing with someone or not I'll still use the 19º cone. But when it comes to the sharp breaks and deeper water I like to use my 9º most of the time.
