      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 .

Reading my FL-8 Vex

Recommended Posts

I typically use my clearwater classic and my son is away at college this year and I have been using his vexilar fl-8. It has the floating iceducer and I have really enjoyed the colors. The owners manuel is long gone and I need some help reading the depth. OK, you have a choise of S1, 2 or 4 or D 1, 2 or 4. The S side is white and the D side is yellow. So, I understand if I am on S1, I simply read the outer white scale that goes to 20'. What scale do I read if I am on S2 or S4? I assume if I am on D1, I would read the inside yellow scale, but how about if I am on D2 or 4? I also think I am only supposed to turn up my gain until my jig is bright orange. Is this correct? Thanks for the help/.

i use D1 and yes it uses the inside scale. turn the gain up untill your jig is green. depending on your depth it may be better to have a second hole for the vex near your jigging hole. it seems you can turn the gain up a knotch for better botom clarity and still have a nice fluid green line which is your jig.

If you were in 15 feet of water S1 would read 15ft on outside S2 would mean you would double it. If it read 15 ft you would be in 30. S4 read 15 you would be in 60. Same with the inside yellow. It is your opinion on how you want the gain set I set mine at green and if there is a fish close it will turn yellow to give me a warning that there is a fish near by. If you get interference use your IR yellow button it has 7 settings use the best one. Always charge your battery after each use.

GOOD LUCK THE FISH ARE BITING

Vexilar is very good at providing detailed info for their units. Here is the link to PDF files for all the models and tips.

If you still have questions feel free to ask away. I know from experience that instructions can at times be less then instructional. smile.gif

Hope this helps.
