      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-1 Question

Recommended Posts

jeffyo45

I have an LX-1 that I bought brand new I think 4-5 years ago. I love it and have never had any problems with it. I have always been able to read even the smallest of panfish jigs in 40 feet of water with the gain turned to just above 2. This year for some reason I have been having to turn the gain up into the 5-6 range if I am fishing in anything over 15 feet of water. My question, is this most likely a transducer that is going bad or a battery problem? It gets used a fair amount during the winter but like I said I have never had a problem with either the battery or the transducer. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

It sounds like a transducer problem at first. You may have some scratches on the bottom or its just going bad. Before you purchase a new one, if you have a spare battery or know someone who has a good one, try using that first to see if that path is your problem. You could also contact Marcum customer service and see what they have to say. Good Luck

Like KDawg says.. try a new battery first.. one can never have enough back up batteries.. If you still feel its not kicking out the same power it once had, You may need a new ducer...

Does the bottom of your ducer have any major dings or scratches on it?

If it's not the battery it could be the transducer or the powerhead. Talk to Marcum, they'll fix it.
