      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 .

I just bought a different fishing boat that did not come with a depth finder. What would be a good one for the money that will fairly easily distinguish fish from the bottom and other stuff in the water. I have a cheap EAGLE Portable and want something with more resolution. Can I get a good quality one for $300? If so what models should I look at?

For $300 you can get a X-125 Lowrance that has 2400 watts of power and a 480 x 480 pixel screen.

Is it a good one? I don't need frills but do want one that does more than tell me how deep.

The X-125 will be a good unit for what you want and for the price your willing to spend... Will mark fish, show transition zones, etc etc... Get to know the unit well and make sure your mount the transducer correctly and you will be happy with this graph...

Check out the specs of the Humminbird 727. With the 737 I have shown 2.7 inch target separation with two jigs tied next to each other in 30 feet of water. The 737 is the same as the 727 with GPS capabilities. I opted for the color unit, 777c2. I fished the 737 and 777c2 for 5 days on a Rainy Lake trip and they are very good units. I think better than Lowrance. 640 vertical pixels. The 727 is $280.
