      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 .

Standard Eagle/Lowrance transducer snapped during my outing yesterday. Basically broke off right at the pin. Has anyone successfully epoxied these back together. Or is is a waste of my time?

Funny, same thing happened to me today on my bow mount. I used epoxy on it tonight. I will let you know how well it held. I have my doubts that it will hold throughout the summer.

I did the same thing last year. I had to get a new one. It was a pain because I had to fish the wire all the way to my dash.

What does it look like and which type is it ? I might have a couple transducers with no mount here.

I am looking at a HS-WSX here in front of me.

I'm suprised (ok, a little anyway since you run the river) that it snapped as compared to flipping up and out of the way.

Did you have the rubber washers installed and not overtigtened so it could flip up when it hit something?

Actually I have a small 14ft alum boat, and the cord runs through one of the handles in back. I think a stick got caught up in the cord loop as I was snaking around in a small creek.

I'll try to epoxy it, then buy a new one I guess if that don't work.

well, I tried some marine epoxy. Seems to be holding very good. Next test is the water.

Thanks
