      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 .

Hand Held Marine Radio

Was curious if anyone has a recommendation on a Hand held radio. I fish in areas where cell phones are useless.

Thanks

I have fished with guys using hand helds down here on Pepin. Even the nice ones have very limited range of just a couple miles or so. The radios with the long 8' antennaes work great but are pricey and cumbersome. A water resistant model is a must and you do get what you pay for.

Hand held VHF radios are a good compromise for those that can't, for one reason or another, have a standard indash/underdash radio. True, range is limited somewhat, but with todays technology, that gap between the two is getting very narrow. You're greatest limitation with a hand-held is in antenna length. If memory serves, VHF is basically line of site. So the longer, or higher up your antenna is, the better TX/RX capabilities you'll have.

I feel that all the major players in the radio marketplace produce very good units. Take a good look and output power and features you may want. I happen to like the weather alert features found on some models. As well as muti channel monitoring. They're as simple or as complex as you want them. It's just a matter of finding one that's going to fit your application.
