      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 .

X85 Interference with Humminbird??

Recommended Posts

I use an X85 for the rear of the boat. I recently got a Humminbird WIDE 100 from a
buddy,that I am planning on putting on
the troller up front.I mainly want it for when I'm sitting up front and want some
depth/structure info,but having them both
on would be nice as well.The Humminbird is
a 200khz unit with a 24 degree ducer.The X85
runs at 192 khz.Has anyone mixed Lowrance
and Humminbirds this way??Boat is 17.5 feet
so there will be some seperation from the two.

Hang on there tumble weed
I allso have a hummingbird and I like it alot. But what you were told about mixing two different kinds of finders is ok provided they are at least 100-150 megahertz apart if not they will interfere with each other.But by placing them at two different ends of the boat you should have a depth range of around thirty ft. before the cones overlap and thsy begin to feedback on each other. I was told this by the factory rep for hummingbird. now bottom line make a nice unit with side scan that runs at over 400 megs and will not bother your other depth finder one bit.Good luck and keep your lines wet.

Basshunter, are you running another unit or have you ran another unit along side your hummingbird? Or are you going off the hummingbird rep info? If so , what is the freqency? I run a Garmin at 200khz right along side a x-85 at 192khz and get no interference what so ever..

D-Man I have a 300tx in the bow on my trolling motor and I have a 200dx on the stern and I have been having trouble with getting what I thought was just a lot of junk in the water at 26ft.a lot of spots and junk on my screen getting worse the deeper it went and that is what I was told causedit.I changed the unit for a bottom line 1200 which runs at over 400mghts and havn`t had A problem.D-man do you have one of your finders set on your trolling motor allso and if so how often do you fish in deep water?If you are just running both units in shallow water ,20 ft or less I doubt then you would be having any problems.

I have them both mounted on the transom opposite of each other and the units are mounted side by side. I mainly use them in waters between 20-33 feet. I also run a Vex at 200khz along side a LMS-350a at 192 khz with no problems.

I wil be putting it through the first test
on Sat. morning on Lake Marion. If I remember right,the deepest spot out there is around
30 feet,but seeing the shoreline yesterday,
the water level is very low this spring,and it may not even be thirty feet.I will post
here on my results.

Went out to Marion around 2pm. Lots of
folks out there.Anyway, both locators worked fine with one another.I tried them with both the trolling motor and the main outboard motor running,and even with both going, with zero problems.I will try this one
more time in some deeper water,and again
post the results.

P.S. Hey D-man, that PD-50 works great,
thanks again!! Are you getting up to your boat soon?? I am waiting for the other half of that quik-off mount.Let me know.

    • I know they drum quite a bit in the spring but I've been hearing drumming this fall. I'm not hearing as many as I do in the spring. But I'm sure hearing a good number of them drum  Are they  searching for a mate in the fall?
    • I was out 2 weeks ago around Duluth and saw a smaller buck either a 6 or small 8 pointer chasing a doe.  She wanted nothing to do with him.  I'll be back out this Sunday and Monday hoping to see a bit more activity. 
    • Thanks Hoey.  At that price I think I will just go with the foam board insulation.  It's such a small area left to insulate and that way I can avoid the mess and the headaches.  Plus I will be able to get it a full 2-3/4" thick throughout. My next project I think may be to replace the dinette table with a jackknife couch.  Any idea how long those come?  The longest I've seen so far is 72" which to me sounds too short for me to sleep on comfortably since I'm over 6' tall.  Does anyone carry bigger sizes, or do most people build them so they sleep with their head on the armrests?
    • They make mounts where the TV sits out a little further and you can mount a couple smaller appliances to the mount behind the TV with straps.  Not an option for some as the TV may stick out a few more inches but worth considering if you don't want a separate cabinet. 
    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard. 
    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
