      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 VS 560 Underwater Camera **SOLD**

Recommended Posts

hanson

Hey Guys! I'm selling my camera! Its a Marcum VS 560 Underwater Camera. I've had it for a year and have only used it a few times. Its absolutely awesome, the Cadillac of underwater cameras.

I'm asking $450 as these sell new for $600.

Here's what the Marcum website says about the camera-

"Camera rotates in underwater housing providing 360 degree viewing area. Rotation can be controlled by manual operation of keypad or choice of three different auto pan speeds. A wireless remote controls camera rotation, auto pan speeds, and lighting. VS 560 includes on screen displays for reporting depth, direction, water temperature, and battery status. Lighting system incorporates “Darkwater Technology” eliminating majority of particulate reflection therefore increasing viewing clarity and distance. Includes padded denier soft pack, collapsible viewing shroud, battery, DC charger, and additional weight for use in open water. Available in 60 feet cable length."

The camera is in awesome shape and perfect working order, complete with owner's manual, battery & battery charger, and wireless remote control.

I can ship the camera to you but will add actual shipping charges via USPS onto the total. Insurance or stuff like that will be up to you. I also live in Plymouth and the camera can be picked up or may meet you in the western metro. I'm flexible.

Any questions, e-mail me at my address below.

Guess nobody is looking for THE best underwater camera on the market at a great price??

I am willing to drop the price to $400.

Here's a photo of the remote control that is included with the camera. I just put a new battery in the remote and it works sweet! Control auto panning speeds, manually control the camera left & right, turn the camera light on & off directly from the remote!

Hanson,

I am very interested in the camera. I have a few questions for you. How big is the camera head? How do you center the camera in the ice hole? Does it come with a ice arm? Does the camera make noise when it rotates?

Hey! Those are some good questions!

How big is the camera head?

Without having the camera head in hand, I would say it is approx. 3-1/2 to 4" in diameter, and then the "fin" adds a little to the one side. It fits nicely down an 8" hole. I've never tried it down a 6" hole but it should fit.

Does it come with an ice arm?

Nope. The great thing about the 560 is all the rotation is done inside of the camera housing. You don't need the little tripod like the old Marcum cameras had to enable the camera & cord totate.

This camera also downviews by clipping the cord in the clip on the bottom of the camera housing. This was the primary way I used it so you can fish and downview with your camera in the same hole. Sometimes the fish would tangle around the camera cord but not too big a deal.

Does the camera make noise when it rotates?

None. Its silent.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action.

      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
