      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 .

My boat came with a humminbird matrix 67 sonar and I would like to learn more about what I am looking at on the screen when I am fishing (bottom composition,fish, baitfish,....) Anyone know of a good book or guide?

I think you can download the manual from the Humminbird website.

Not sure about humminbirds but the one that came with my Eagle is terrible. They mostly just keep repeating "until you learn how to understand what you are seeing".

Worthless

About 2 years ago I received a sonar manual that describes how they work. It is pretty technical and very informative and is based on lowrance fish finders. The file was sent to me from a guy on Iboats. The file is about 3 megs and if anyone is interested I can send it to you if you email me at ralgoetz@comcast.net.

I sent three out. One requested a return receipt for the email which for some reason kept erroring out when I sent it. If you did not get a response from me please send another email and I will re send.

Even though you don't have a Lowrance, there is a sonar tutorial on their website that can help you understand the settings (which are common on all locators such as gain, gray scale, etc). It's very good.

First tip: Turn of the "Fish ID" option......the one that shows all the little fishies on your screen.
