      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 .

Sometimes when ice fishing I have trouble picking up my lure on the flasher, I try adjusting the gain with no results, but then other times I have no problem picking them up. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Are the depths the same in both scenarios, or do you have a harder time picking up your lure in deeper water?

Generally in about 22-15 fow, does seem to do better in deeper water though.

I'm not sure then. If you have a wide beam transducer (most common) it's sometimes hard to see your jig in deep water, and I think a narrow beam might make it a little tougher in shallow water, but I would think ~20 ft of water would be ok for either option.

It has to do with the profile of the jigs you use. I have some that are hard to pick up at any gain level and then I have some that get picked up right away at a low gain setting. experiment with different jigs and see if the profile makes a difference.

The other thing that can cause you a problem is the cone angle when you are fishing close to the bottom on a sharp drop you can lose your jig in the drop. If you are on a flat sand bottom you might have to turn up the gain on certain jigs because of the profile but for the most part that should be the best for viewing using the least amount of power and if you still have problems then you might have a bad transducer.

I've noticed that the type that different types of jigs show up somewhat differently on the the screen----different levels of intensity

The transducer could be bad or going bad. Swap it out with somebody else who has a Marcum to see if it changes what you see.
