      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 .

They are supposed to be pretty good. But I have also heard they are kind of confussing to operate. Lots of buttons grin.gif.

I have the Pinpoint System 7 on a boat I purchased used 2 years ago. It includes a bow mounted trolling motor with a transducer built in, and two sonars. One on the bow and one on the console. They are all networked together. So I can chose to use the transducer on the bow or stern on either unit. That is the best feature.

I would give it mixed reviews as far as the sonar units are concerned. I used to own an Eagle Utlra III and found that much easier to use. I've read the manuals many times, just didn't find it to be to user friendly. I just bought a Lowance GPS/Sonar that I plan to replace the unit on the console with. And will keep the unit on the bow and use the transducer on the trolling motor.

The thing I don't like the most about the system is the trolling motor. It has a feature that you can track a depth and it is supposed to keep that depth. I guess it may work if the lake is very flat. But haven't found one of those lakes yet. Most of the time it just starts going in circles. And the other people fishing in the boat start giving me dirty looks and think I have been drinking too much. Think of replacing it with a Minkota with auto-pilot. I used to have that on my previous boat and miss it.

I have a 7520 and ran it for 5 years.Its a very nice graph,the scroll speed on it is outstanding.There are alot of buttons on it but some of them are for upgrading to gps.I have since went to lowrance cause I like the color graphs,but im keeping my pinpoint for a backup.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks
