      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 .

How well does a Aqua-View work up there?

How far can you see? I'm bringing up my Aqua-View Scout in a week and was wondering how effective it'll be?

I haven't been up there for a few years but when we looked down the holes we could see very far. My guess is it is still the same, very clear. Have fun

Mille Lacs is one of the best I have used a camera on. It is very clear in the winter. Try not to hit the bottom or you will have a cloud for a spell.

the camera works great up there, BUT i think it spooks the walleye, seems to not bother the perch that much but the walleye right now seem to be a little spooky. kinda like late season birds!!

You shouldnt have a problem seeing with your camerea up there, it has always worked well for us in the past. Here is something that we do with it, I suggest that you give it a try. What we do is take some rubber bands or electrical tape and rig your camera so that the camera will be facing the bottom when you drop it down. This allows you to be able to keep it a ways off the bottom and not spook the fish as easily. I personally think that you get a better picture anyway. That also eliminates all the twisting of the cord that you may have to do. Hope this helps, good luck!

I don't have an Aqua view but I connect my camera to one of the deep cycle batteries in my house and I have run the camera every weekend since we put the house out on Dec. 26th and I'm still running it.

I used a camera for the first time yesterday. It was a OVS system that is a few years old. I wasn't impressed at all. Couldn't see but a couple feet and it was spinning so bad that you couldn't hardly keep it focused in on things. Are the new Marcums or Aquavu's any better? I was debating on buying one next season, but with this experience I would'nt waste the money. It would be nice to have, to see what is going on down there. But the performance of this camera sucked to say the least. Maybe it is just the camera and the new ones are much better. What are your opinions

DRH,

My camera is a homemade one, on mine I have a "microphone" stand that I clamp my camera into so once you get it turned the direction you want it stay's put. With mine I can see 6+ feet, I say that because the hole I put it down is ~4' from my jigging hole and I can see fish coming in from behind the jig.
