      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 Question

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I was fishing in 16 ft of water using a #10 demon and my LX3 with TC upgrade would not pick up my bait. I have a new battery in the unit so I know that's not the problem and I'm wondering what you guy's think it is. I'm guessing the transduce went bad but before I spend $75.00 I would like to know if anyone else has expierienced this and what the problem was.

Thanks in advance.

It may be a bad ducer from that era or even some form of damage with what now must five years old? Of course check your connections just to make sure or contact Marcum customer service they are always more then willing to help.

I found that I have issues picking up my bait when the transducer is touching the side of the ice when I don't have it all the way down. If it isn't touching the side of the ice, or is to the bottom of the hole then I don't have an issue.

Had the same problems with an LX-3tc, I would send it into Marcum or bring it to their service office in Anoka (if it is still there). Mine turned out to be the transducer, but they also did some work on the head unit cause it was also having IR issues.
