      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 .

Minnkota Trolling motor

Recommended Posts

I neesd to replace my old bow mount trolling motor and have been looking around the internet for some deals. My biggest question is what is the difference between a 12 volt and 24 volt machine? Does it mean it takes twice the juice to run it(so I would need 2 batteries), or is 2X more powerful, etc? Thanks in advance for any answers.

Any Minnkota over 55# thrust is 24 volt. If you need more than 55# of thrust, go with a 70 or 80 pound thrust unit. They do require two deep cycle batteries hooked together to give 24 volts. They will last longer because you will not have to work the motor as hard to do the same thing if you were underpowered.

The thrust requirement is usually dictated by the size and type of the boat and what you plan to do with the boat.
