      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 .

how to read graph mode lx67 ice machine?

Recommended Posts

Can you name some specifics otherwise the basics are: Turn auto sensitivity and auto range off. Adjust the upper and lower limits manually within a foot of bottom depth. This gives you the best fish vs jig separation. Turn zoom to 4X and go to split screen mode, you can now adjust the zoom w/the < > anywhere in the column and can see the "big picture" at the same time. Now, lower jig down and turn up the sensitivity till you can see your jig moving on the screen as a solid line and there's little black dots on the white backgroud. Then adjust colorline to allow for the full spectrum of color. I like the IceView for a color scheem (ex. as fish get closer the color goes from black-blue-green-yellow and red is directly under you).I fish on busier lakes so I leave my noise rejection on high and adjust surface clarity as needed. The DVD that mine came with is also helpfull. I believe you can get it through the Lowrance HSOforum.

Here is a semi-helpful vid I found over on the Tube --->

RedBandit explains the menu functions well and Federline made a great post about a year ago about 'dialing in' the X67c.

I noticed that the history search is now only 3 years - my posts are getting ready to roll off the backend of FM, so here's a cut-n-paste of history. smile

Ice-Friendly x67c settings:

Go the graph mode (I use split-graph), and try this:

1) Turn off Autosensitivity: Menu, Auto-sensitivity, Enter to get rid of "X"

2) Turn off Auto-depth range: Menu, Auto Depth range, Enter to get rid of "X"

3) Set depth range: Menu, Depth Range, select your Max depth to display (pick only as much as is needed to see bottom), Enter

4) Crank up chart speed to 100%: Menu, Chart Speed, select 100%, Enter

5) Turn on all digital filtering

--> a) Turn on Surface clutter filter: Menu, Sonar Features, Surface Clarity, select High

--> B) Turn on Noise Rejection: without hitting anything else, Down Arrow to Noise Rejection, select High, EXIT button (you can decrease these later if you want, but I run them both on high all the time)

6) Change Ping Speed around, start at 100%: Menu, Ping Speed, select speed, Enter (try other speeds, too)

7) Now, re-adjust sensitivity (Since I started doing this, I have never gone below 90%)

You can now flip between graph and flasher displays if you want.

Graph Display Mode:

When you go into Split Screen Mode, the left window becomes the zoomed window. Turn off the Auto-Depth feature. You can select either 2x or 4x for this pane. The right pane remains as the full water column. Use the up and down buttoms to scroll the zoom window up and down the water column to where you want it. Can't do this in flasher mode - there, you can only zoom in on the bottom 6 feet.

    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
