      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 .

X85 Interference with Humminbird??

Recommended Posts

I use an X85 for the rear of the boat. I recently got a Humminbird WIDE 100 from a
buddy,that I am planning on putting on
the troller up front.I mainly want it for when I'm sitting up front and want some
depth/structure info,but having them both
on would be nice as well.The Humminbird is
a 200khz unit with a 24 degree ducer.The X85
runs at 192 khz.Has anyone mixed Lowrance
and Humminbirds this way??Boat is 17.5 feet
so there will be some seperation from the two.

Hang on there tumble weed
I allso have a hummingbird and I like it alot. But what you were told about mixing two different kinds of finders is ok provided they are at least 100-150 megahertz apart if not they will interfere with each other.But by placing them at two different ends of the boat you should have a depth range of around thirty ft. before the cones overlap and thsy begin to feedback on each other. I was told this by the factory rep for hummingbird. now bottom line make a nice unit with side scan that runs at over 400 megs and will not bother your other depth finder one bit.Good luck and keep your lines wet.

Basshunter, are you running another unit or have you ran another unit along side your hummingbird? Or are you going off the hummingbird rep info? If so , what is the freqency? I run a Garmin at 200khz right along side a x-85 at 192khz and get no interference what so ever..

D-Man I have a 300tx in the bow on my trolling motor and I have a 200dx on the stern and I have been having trouble with getting what I thought was just a lot of junk in the water at 26ft.a lot of spots and junk on my screen getting worse the deeper it went and that is what I was told causedit.I changed the unit for a bottom line 1200 which runs at over 400mghts and havn`t had A problem.D-man do you have one of your finders set on your trolling motor allso and if so how often do you fish in deep water?If you are just running both units in shallow water ,20 ft or less I doubt then you would be having any problems.

I have them both mounted on the transom opposite of each other and the units are mounted side by side. I mainly use them in waters between 20-33 feet. I also run a Vex at 200khz along side a LMS-350a at 192 khz with no problems.

I wil be putting it through the first test
on Sat. morning on Lake Marion. If I remember right,the deepest spot out there is around
30 feet,but seeing the shoreline yesterday,
the water level is very low this spring,and it may not even be thirty feet.I will post
here on my results.

Went out to Marion around 2pm. Lots of
folks out there.Anyway, both locators worked fine with one another.I tried them with both the trolling motor and the main outboard motor running,and even with both going, with zero problems.I will try this one
more time in some deeper water,and again
post the results.

P.S. Hey D-man, that PD-50 works great,
thanks again!! Are you getting up to your boat soon?? I am waiting for the other half of that quik-off mount.Let me know.

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      Got two drake woodies took some advice from some great shooters and I only shot like 5 shells. Finn retrieved my ducks but got muddy so he got a bath.

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
