      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 .

I found several with a quick search on the internet, both trolling motor and skimmer mount. You can get a new one for $69. This unit is getting pretty old and it's only going to get harder to find parts, you may want to upgrade here pretty soon.

For what it's worth, I had a LCX 15 and a LCX 17 back in the day, both use the same transducer but different colored ends.

Nope, GPS Discount does not carry my part. I looked at several online sites and I found one for 269.00 (way too much!) and one used one for 55.00 on a popular auction site. (No way to test it this time of year) I know ill need to replace the unit sooner or later, but I was hoping to go for a while yet. Anyone else know any other sites? Thanks!!

Do a yahoo search for Lowrance LCX-15 transducer. Click on the reply for GPS Discount. Scroll to the bottom and there it is.

Neither Reeds nor Marine General have this transducer on their HSOforum. The one it calls for is a HST-WBL.

I am almost positive that the HST-WSBL will work as I think I did it years ago but I can't tell you 100% that it will. Can you plug it into a buddies or borrow one?

It will work the difference is in the temperature sender. I use a HST-WSBL that came with my lcx-37 on my 15mt all the time.

Thanks for the info on GPS Discount. I ordered one last night, today I received an e-mail stating that it has been discontinued and no longer available. My search continues................ I would like to find one that also has temp like my old one did.

Cross-reference that part and stick with the big online auction site. And I would call Reed's - seems to me that transducer also fits several other models. I also seem to remember someplace out east with three rivers in their name or something - a great source for dated or almost-out-of-date parts.

3 rivers marine does not have this transducer. Is anyone familiar with an Airmar P66 transducer? I have read that this is a possible replacement for my current transducer and it does have surface temp?

We got 1 for Xmas for our 520c that we've had problems with.Haven't got to try it out yet.I found out about it on this site.If you do a search in the left column for it(Airmar p66) or "I hate my sonar" you'll find some info.Ordered ours from a place in Florida, had to wait 2 weeks for it to be shipped as they didn't have any on hand.You could try calling them as I don't think they had an e-mail address

Thanks for the info! I e-mailed the tech and it appears that this unit will not support the temp feature. Guess I am going to have to learn to live without surface temp!

Glad I could help because of the issues we were having with our(520c) unit.I really like the GPS & lakemaster chip we have on this but the sonar has never worked right.But now with the help of some of the people on here & our new transducer,it should be good.

    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
    • Hi there, new here. Found this place because of this older topic.  We are planning a pole barn home on a slab. This is the 1st one in our township and the inspector seems unsure about the requirements for the slab "foundation" and insulation. When we started last year the old inspector said if the poles are through the frost level (42") you can just lay down a flat 4" slab. The new inspector seems to think it needs a foundation. Not finding much info online for this specific build. Plan as of right now. 4" radon pea gravel and barrier, 4" rock, 2" foam, heat tubes, steel mesh with 4" concrete over that. Someone here know the county (Isanti) spec for something like this? Township overrules county.  Thanks.   https://talk.newagtalk.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=376864&DisplayType=nested
    • BB gun?  Hows that for a 1st post?   
    • Ahh. Thanks for your story PRO-V. That’s what I’m trying to avoid. Plus it’s about 400 feet of hose to get to the banks...
    • A couple years ago I just got done plowing my driveway with the wheeler. Along comes an adult snowmobiler with his kid following behind. Guy crosses driveway and stops on top of opposite bank. Then he guns his machine sending all the snow back in the driveway. This is not a trail, just random ditch riders. Well I was outside and saw him do it. I jumped in my truck and cut him off at a road crossing 2 blocks away. I jumped out and royally chewed his azz and told him what a bad example he was setting for the kid. I think he got the message. For awhile after that I sprayed water on the banks to freeze them. No respect, they wouldn't want you doing that to their driveway.
