      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 .

Thru the Hull Transducer

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

My boat 'Ginny' is down at Barker's. I am in the process of loading it up. All it had was a Compass so $$$.

I was wondering if anyone close by has installed a Thru the hull transducer. I know it is always easier the second time... Also, anyone near there have a BandSaw to cut the hull angle on the transducer fairing? I don't want to buy one just for this vs. using my 10" chopsaw.

Feel free to stop by for a beverage or two this weekend. It is parked behind thier new big shed. I will launch when I have the transducer mounted. Slip will be E36

Tru-Hull ducers have their advantages, running shallow water being the most obvious, fouling with scum from sitting in the water all season is another, although the bottom of the hull is getting fouled too.

I think you loose some signal but the biggest concern is once its set in, thats it. It takes me a few outing to get my ducer tweaked. I run dual frequency and I like marking the downrigger balls with out the 50kHz if possible so I adjust a little for blow back.

ST, Yeah it’s probably a one shot deal.

The transom ones usually take some adjustment. I just like the fact with a boat like mine it will solve and running and reading issues. Most transoms will work when trolling. However, they loose the reading (as u said) to agitation when running faster.

Butch did you get your transducer mounted and your boat in the water ? I wanted to let you know that the guy on the dock next to me called me tonight and will be up there Thursday, and will help me take the boat across the lake, if the wind ever dies down. If you read this post , reply so I know, otherwise I will call you and let you know so you can change your plans. Thanks for the offer to help.
