      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 .

Drift sock attachment

I'm wondering why the manufactures suggest attaching it to a front side cleat instead of the bow eye. HTB

Probably because it's easier to access. It's not much fun trying to tie/untie a drift sock with big waves splashing in your face! grin.gif I'm also sure it's so you see it or have a better chance of seeing it, so you don't put the hammer down with it still there? I know I'm not the only one to forget the drift sock out. shocked.gif

That's my thinking behind it.

I was thinking maybe it was to catch less wind, but I still don't understand it, with a second retrival line its easy to retrive and deploy, but I have taken off with it still in the water. HTB

Maybe if you stil have the trolling motor down, it's not as likely to catch?? I suppose some guys will just run back up to the start of the drift with the motor, although I suppose that if it's windy enough that you need the sock, that you're going to have to have one heck of a trolling motor to run back up through those waves, pulling the sock??
