      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 .

LCX-15

Hi everyone,

This morning I bought this unit. Do you guys like this unit?

I know some people have had trouble with the dual frequency transducer in the past. I don't fish deep water to often so did I buy the wrong transducer? Any feed back would be great.

Thanks,

Brian

The X-15 is a good unit, a few years back before the color Lowrance units came out it was probably the top of the line unit out there. It was discontinued last year and was replaced by the X-17. It is still a great performing unit.

I have had nothing but good luck with my 15. Does everything I need it to. Probably more Im sure Im not using it to its fullest potential.

Next year it will go on the bow and I will put color on the dash. What does everyone like for the color units besides the 332c? I want a screen at least as big as the one on my 15.

Steve,

Of course.. if you can spend the money, I would opt for the 111C, or the 110C... But your talking $2,000 bucks after all is said and done, unless you find a killer deal... For the type and the amount of fishing you do, one of these would be sweet!! smile.gif

But, if you are looking at something in the same size, etc as your 15, either the 25C or the 26c HD is what you would want. Either of these will meet your needs and give you what you had with your 15, plus more... Again, a bit spendy, but I think you can shed some money from the purchase as you already have a GPS antenna, and a dual transducer.... So if I am right, all you need is just the unit, everything should just hook up to your old wiring... The difference in the two, the HD just has built in maps to the unit...

Those are what I would look at for a replacement...

Oh, and for people looking for a new unit.. I see Lowrance is coming out with a new line of sonar/gps unit, that has built in antennas... LMS-334C and LMS 339C.. should be another great seller!!

Steve,

If you are going with the bigger color screen and under $1000 then the X-20c and X-25c would be your only options. The X-25c retails for a little over $1000 but you should be able to find one somewhere for less then $1000. The X-25 has more resolution and a little bigger screen 7" compared to 6" on the X-20c They both are high power units at 8000 watts so that can be a good thing for these 2 units. Other the that I think the the LMS series of units are priced well but like mentioned before you already have the gps. That would be a tough decision for me, the X-20 is borderline not enough resolution for me, I have a X-125 that retails at $300 that has better resolution then the x-20 but you do get more then twice the power with the bigger units. Good luck

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.

      Miltona is wide open, there will be quite a few boats out there this weekend. Most lakes south of Miltona are fishable by boat.

      Can the DNR or who ever reported this, never use this word again "presumptive" when dealing with Wildlife disease results again! It can be better used as, "We are awaiting the presumptive proof of Al Franken touching a boob." But not about Wildlife issues!

      It's all open...it's ready to go..But we won't see any big time cold for awhile..Still in better position then last year. I was open water fishing the first weekend of shotgun in a t-shirt last year. We'll be alright.

      Be careful in Vineland bay, even though the river runs out there, there is still some current. It's very sandy there. Find vegetation along a drop off and you'll find pike. If you are going on foot you can walk out of the East access at Father Hennepin and hit a drop off pretty close to shore. Let us know how you do!

      Interesting on the common merganser. I want to go but I'm not sure either. I was hopeful our go to lake would be open. It is but locked up tight with ice from the landing (in a sheltered bay) several hundred feet out to the more open part of the lake. Haven't seen anything on it either. Our lake is wide open and bait shop owner says he remembers terrific late season hunting on the channel full of cattails into the neighboring lake,  and I've seen birds flying by, but will have to monitor the weather. Not launching the boat if its in the 20s and gale force winds. If it was warmer and a light wind, why the heck not? My wife is also saying no, don't go. We have a lot to do this weekend. I'm like, I would go right on our lake and likely be done and in the house by 9:30 Saturday morning. I would doubt you'll be up by then. lol.
