      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 .

Marcum LX-3 question

Question

I have a question about my Marcum. I've read the directions and still have a question after using it several times.

Here is the scenario: When I turn on the Zoom mode (5' or 10' window) and push the down button until the bottom edge of the zoom window stripe (shown on the right side) is at or just below the bottom of the lake shown; the bottom on the zoom (left) side of the display is in the 6 o'clock position. According to the directions and to what other knowledgable users have told me, the bottom of the lake in the zoom mode should be at the 12 o'clock position.

Am I doing something wrong or is my unit goofy? Honestly, I might like it better this way, because it is more like the FL-18, but I want to know if my $400 unit has a flaw or not...

The bottom shows close to the 6 o'clock position for both halves.

Thinking about Medicine Lake on Thursday night after work (4:30pm-ish). The normal spots aren't producing well this year, so I need to get out and chase them. I'm hoping the temps will permit this, otherwise I have one more GPS point to check-out before I am back to simply hitting the map. You'd be more than welcome to join me.

As far as the Marcum issue goes. I remember reading in the directions that the display is supposed to go clockwise, including in the zoom mode. I also remember out on Linwood when I saw the unit performing this way, and since then, I haven't been able to reproduce that. I don't have a problem with the way my unit is performing per my previous description, but I am just curious to know if my unit is performing how it is supposed to in case anything else ever comes up.

Right side reads normal(clockwise) 12 o'clock is surface and 6 o'clock is bottom.

Left side zoom reads counter clockwise.
12 o'clock is top and 6 o'clock is button or lowest point set in the water column you've selected.
