      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Issues using Two Transducers on Humminbird Fish Finder


I am using two transducers on my Humminbird 1198 and I am having an issue with my 2d sonar picture at higher speeds (>20).   They are connected using a Y-cable from humminbird.  I was working on making adjustments to my side-imaging transducer for this to work better, but at this time I have not been able to make any real improvements. I called up customer service on another question and they informed me that my 2d sonar signal is coming from the non-side imaging transducer.  That seems odd to me that it wouldn't be getting all of its signals from one transducer or the other transducer.  Before I go messing around with the placement of my other transducer I wanted to ask everyone here if they know this to be true? 

I have already checked many of the initial things that can cause issues with sonar readings, like line of rivets, etc.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

You si and di come from the side transducer and you 2d sonar and depth comes from the 2d sonar. the 2d sonar is the one you need to be adjusting to get better on plane readings. If you have glass boat then you can do a thru hull transducer and that seems to work best but it's not possible for aluminum boats.
