      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 .

question re: 2 graphs running simultaneoulsy

Recommended Posts

OK, just a quick question here. I am upgrading my console locator (X51) with a nicer unit (LCM 332c) and moving the X51 to the front. My question is this: can I leave the X51 transducer mounted on the transom and mount the 332c transducer nearby on the transom without getting interference when running both simultaneously. I have my own gut feeling and have gotten conflicting advice from sporting goods stores (actually 2 different guys @ the same store confused.gif So if anyone has advice (based on experience, no speculation please), I would appreciate it. Thanks all!

Maybe, maybe not.

If the transducers are mounted close to each other they will interfer. If you put them on opposite sides of the boat you will probably be okay.

What kind of boat? Maybe you could use a shoot through hull style ducer. This way it would eliminate more holes in the transom. And also keep the two seperated.

I run a X15 on the dash and an X85 at the kicker in the

back. Both transducers are on the transom on either side of the main motor. Sometimes they play nice and then at other times.. they don't. A simple power reset at both units

will usually correct it. I have found them to be more

picky in water less than 10 feet. You could probably

cut down on one or the other's level of sensitivity

or similar controls to help with the problem.

Another way is to get different KHZ levels for each

transducer/unit when you pair them up.

It looks like both units you are talking about use

the 200KHZ skimmer transducer. You might experience

some difficulty with two skimmers. A through the hull

is a lot more money too!! The "hockey puck" trolling motor

transducer is fairly cheap. If the X51's transducer cable will interface with the 332C , you could use the

already installed transducer for the new unit, and get a "puck" for the X51??? That way you can seperate the

two transducers and keep them from cross-talking...

If you are mounting the X-51 at the bow, wouldn't you be happier if its transducer was also near the bow? If you have a bow mounted electric trolling motor you could strap the transducer to it. Ram makes a mount specifically for this and the transducer you have. That's what I did with my X-51.

Thanks for all the responses. I was probably going to try mounting the transducer on the troller, but just wanted to see if it was necessary. I did see the diagram for the skimmer mount on a troller in my 332 manual, seems easy enough and then I don't have to worry about any issues. (I'll be on a week long trip starting tomorrow, so I don't want 'issues') Thanks again!

One other thing. The X-51 does have a filter that you can use if it picks up interference from your other sonar unit.

My opinion - if you're turning down the sensitivity or turning up the noise filters to not show the interference, you're forcing the sonar to not show you a bunch of stuff you should be marking ---- so are you really getting any benefit from having the sonar on in the first place?

If you have one transducer on your bowmount and one on your transom you should not have any interference issues.

So far, I haven't noticed any reduction in detail by taking advantage of the fitering features. I think the feature is going to be designed to filter certain frequency bandwidths associated with other sonar unit signals. My guess is, it's similar to tuning your FM radio to a particular frequency.

I think the "filter" you're refering to is called "noise rejection" - by turning this on you are telling the unit to figure out what it thinks is real and what it thinks is noise, and to only display what it thinks is real. I leave my noise rejection off and decide for myself what I'm seeing - thermoclines, mayflies, small baitfish, suspended junk, noise, etc.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
