      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 .

Camera Problems - HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

PiKeGuY101

I have a Marcum VS250 camera I got last year and the thing worked great until now! I have had it out twice this year and both times the screen freaks out and then drops to a narrow bar across the middle of the tv screen. It goes back and forth from freaking out to working and back again. I've checked all of my wires many times and put in a new battery, it does the same thing on the lake and even at my house after its warm! Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

When I was out this weekend this happened to me with my Cabela's camera also. A new battery corrected the problem and it never failed afterwards.

Are you sure the new battery was charged properly? It just appears to be a battery problem...or a broken battery cable or bad connection?

Thanks guys, the new battery was charged(i've made that mistake before!), I was woundering about the connection at the fuse - it seems pretty loose! I think i'll try that and see what happens. Orlip when you had a short in you camera cable did you replace the cable? or camera? how much? As of now I dont have a flasher so the camera is my only means of finding fish other than the lowrance/lakemaster chip!

My aqua-vu started giving me problems, and after a call to customer service telling me it was out of warranty, I decided to fix it myself. It could be as simple as a vertical hold potentiometer inside the unit on the circuit board that is out of adjustment, or possibly, like mine. Someone dropped it when they borrowed it, and one of the solder joints on the circuit board was broken. Fixed that, and the camera works great. I am not sure how easy it is to access the circuit board on a Marcum, but on the aqua-vu it was a lot of work and a tube of sealant to get it back in shape for the lake.

I had just purchased it from a bargain cave. The short was I think around the 30' mark. Anyway I just returned it so I cant say as to how much the cost would be.

If it is out of warranty try wiggling the cable to see if it corrects itself so you could narrow it done to that part then maybe you could patch that part.

Good Luck.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
