      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 .

Recommended Posts

Bought new for new boat,First time out to test and become familiar with went well.Next trip out was not so good. I drove to URL last weekend and the trouble started. While sitting 400 ft from shore my depth finder read 576ft deep.Not!It takes a lond time to get a bottom reading,when it does it reads correct depth for a while, then the screen loses the bottom(it seems to fade out).The depth numbers start to rise to the 500s.Does any one have any ideas,before I take it out and tell the salesman that talked me out of an X87 what I think of it the best deal for the money.Does a 4stroke motor have any thing to do with it?Its hooked to the battery direct.Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.Dave

My brother in law bought the same unit and had the same exact problem. I told him I suspected the transducer but when he called reeds they sent him a new power head. That one is better. They indicated there may have been a bad run of a few of these locators. Call Eagle or call your dealer to fix the problem.

You need to make sure the transducer is pointing down not horizontally. I just installed a new lms-320 and asked a lowrance pro-staffer how much to tighten the transducer down. He said to tighten it down as far as it will go, squeeze those rubber grommits till they bulge out.

Did you talk to Eagle/Lowrance or the place that you bought the unit? I'm having the same problem with my new 320. I jsut called Eagle and they told me to try and adjust the sensitivity manually and see if that would take care of the problem. If that doesn’t work they said I would have to send in the unit for them to test it. I would rather not have to send it in.

I had similar issues with my unit. Two things to watch for. It seemed to happen when I had my 2nd graph on a lot. I turned of the Vexilar FL-18 and most of my problems went away. The 2nd thing is if I am starting and stopping the boat a lot it seems like it can go crazy. Apparenlty some short power fluctuations can cause this to happen. Just some possibilities to check.

    • interesting web site never spached  a turkey yet....   could be soon!! 
    • Lookin' good....spatchcock that beatch!!!     http://reeltym.blogspot.com/2013/11/the-ultimate-turkey-smoked-on-barbecue.html  
    • I just spent 8 days pheasant hunting in SD last week. Almost every walk in area, CREP area, some waterfowl production areas were cut. Why is that?
    • You wait 'til Delphonic whips you ragged and shows ya his soused-up IQ. But, we MUST remain on the bean soup topic. Mikey is trying to copy it down. I know he can cook it right. Must remain on topic.....
    • You must be as bright as the woman we sold a ham to one time years ago at the grocery store I worked at. She asked the owner of the store who also worked behind the meat counter how to prepare the ham. He told her to put a can of 7up in the bottom of the pan and put in the ham and roast it a 350 degrees for whatever length of time. She looked at him puzzled and said "how do you balance the ham up on top of the can of 7up?" We laughed about that one for years.... Good for you!
    • Copy and paste and put it in yer little Google "recipe box" like I do. Amazing what computers can do.  Other than that, I no longer gives a rat's azz anyway.
    • You do realize that was never the point, right? The problem was not so much that the threads get off topic but that the great recipes you guys were posting weren't being indexed and no one could ever get back to them and put them to use. This post is great and any time I ever want to make bean soup I can just do a search and find it easily. It gets harder when a bean soup recipe gets posted in a good morning thread or something like that. Just sayin".
    • Doesn't stay on the grate real well that way. 
    • Manburgers!!! The only way to cook meat....juicy, grilled burglars!  grill it, baby, grill it!!  
    • Maybe try simmering it over a charcoal bed with some chunks of apple or cherry for a 'real" smoke taste?
