      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 .

Where to buy electronics???

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a new(er)locator for the bow of my boat, or a combo GPS/locator for the stern. I've been watching e-bay lately but I might buy something new this time. Looking for suggestions on where to buy. Online works for me also.

Thanks in advance for your responses,

Nick

Go to Marine General. Call them and ask about show specials they always seem to have some deals on different units.

I have had the best luck and found the best prices on Ebay. Plus you pay no sales tax and that can add up on electronics purchases.

Check out Wade at Jolly marine. He is out of iowa and ships next day to your house free and matches prices. I am very happy with the Lowrance 332 I got from him for $599 w/no tax.

Wow, that LCX17 from Reeds if it has GPS antenna it's a heck of a good deal. I can't believe the price $ 449.00

And I know some people is trying to sell me a used LCX15 for $ 400.00......shocked.gif

I would check with these 3 places:

Marine General

Reeds

Thorne Brothers

You can't go wrong with any of them. You probably want it now, but if you wait until winter you can buy it at one of the sports shows. They are usually willing to deal a little more at the shows.

Good Luck!

I like to froogle stuff I am going to buy.

Jolly Ann marine is the place. No sales tax, free shipping and great service. Wade is also a very good fisherman. He knows his stuff and will give steer you in the right direction. Have any questions zip him an email and he will respond within a few hours at worst.

Not sure if this is universal, but I understand the mark-up on electronics is typically pretty low - most places don't make a ton of money on electronics sales...

I'd agree with the MArine General plug - Russ has been known to cut a deal or two in his day...

Thorne Bros will give you a good deal and make sure you get what you want. They walk you through the different options and help you pick one out that truly suits your needs. They provide excellent customer service and are easy to work with. You will also find that their prices are very comparable to other stores, if not better on some units...

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."
