      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 .

Suspended Fish At Bemidji?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've read some of the reports on here, and all the fish seem to be out deep, are they usually suspended or are they still on the bottom? Might be the decision-breaker between getting an LX-5 or a FL-20, lol.

We did fairly well in 38+ fow. Had to drill plenty of holes to keep on them - seems you would get 2 or 3 aggressive fsh to come up and slam a bait at each hole and then had to finess them. Was easier to drill another hole 10 feet away and pound a few more active fish.

FL-20 in my opinion... Got to use an lx-5 for the first time today. Felt like I was looking at a nintendo tetris game - too blocky for my taste. I'll stick with my fl 18.

heres the deal, not to many people give the lx5 a chance, it can be hard to get to know how to use it , but they work wonders, and for the one guy saying it looked like it was playing a video game the one he used was prolly the first year modle marcum did a bit fine tunning to them and now there great, i sent mine in and got it fixed already but marcum stands behind there work. I have used mine about every day this winter and it has been great from depths of 5 feet in southwest minnesota to fishing lake trout in 120 feet, i never had a problem with it other then the time i dropped in a spear hole and thats when i had to send it in. i have a fl20 which is nice becuase of the flat screen but there is still many more reasons i would go with the marcum

It boils down to personal preferance. The one I used was a brand new model this winter - it was just too pixelated for my taste. I owned an lx-3 once upon a time as well, but now won't buy anything by a vex. I agree the marcum customer service is superb - having problems with my lx-3 they replaced a transducer for me no questions asked.
