      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 .

How many lines with one flasher can you or should you fish?

Recommended Posts

Hello all..
I just bought a new Marcum lx-3 and how many holes can I expect to fish with that thing? I went out with a buddy and we were each fishing 2 lines. I have a 7"auger so we drilled 5 holes and used the middle hole to read both the two inner holes while we were jigging. Sometimes it seems like too much showing up on the flasher so after adjusting the gain things looked better.
Just wondering what other people do...

i only like to have one line showing up on the vex. if there are 2 or more i start to go nuts. in a house i try to have my vex as far away from the other lines as possible then i can usually put the gain to 0 to block them out.

I like to do exactly what Pig-sticka said- one line per vex. Yep, you can definitely fish multiple flashers in the same house. Just play with your IR and see what works best for you and the other flasher.

The last two times I have been out fishing we have had a fl-8, fl-18, and two lx-3 all in the same 8 by 12 house and you do get a little interference, but it's just a few quick lines flashing once in a while. Technology is pretty awesome!!!!!!!!

I always fish two holes on one vex. It's easy to tell which lure the fish is going to by keeping the right side lure up higher than the left or vice versa. It's pretty easy when you get used to doing it. Works better in deeper water for me. Up shallow, too much return and things get distorted...2 vexes in the same house? Could be trouble!....Only room for one in mine anyway.........T

I fish 2 lines with my vex all of the time. Granted, if you are fishing less than 20 feet deep your holes need to be pretty close, but it works great in deeper water. I typically jig with one rod, and fish a live minnow on a plain hook and small splitshot on the other. I adjust the vex so I get a occasional green line from the minnow, and leave it there. Once in a while I lift both of my lines to make sure that everything "moves". I can't imagine fishing more than 2 lines though...

    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
    • Between the frig and stove its only about 2 steps    My kinda program !!!
    • like any addiction..........there are the 12 steps!!!!!!!!!!
    • awe............a Christmas present for the wife................so you can use it!!!! I see!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!
    • Whatever gets you though the night.  If it makes you feel superior to drink expensive whiskey then by all means do so.
