      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 for eyewarrior

eyewarrior, on your 111C (I think that's what you have?) do you have the 200 khz transducer or the dual transducer?

I've got the 110C w/o dual tranducer. I think the 50khz might work well on Mille or LOW pulling cranks. If I were to do it again and the cost is similar I think I'd get the double.

One more follow up question for Eyewarrior, or anyone else with Lowrance fish finder/GPS combo. I presume that if you have the dual frequency transducer, you can show both the 50 and 200 kHz screens, and the GPS screen all at the same time?? Or is it only split screen fish finder and you'd have to toggle back and forth between fish finder and GPS? Does anyone have a Lowrance with dual transducer and GPS, what do you think of it? I am considering a Lowrance fish finder/gps (with mapping). Eyewarrior, I would think the 50 kHz gives you more coverage to the sides, and would pick up some of the fish that move to the side when you are trolling. I currently have a dual transducer on my current fish finder and like it. Thanks.

HAHA I have a Lowrance and I need some major practice with it before I can answer any of your questions. I think I would really benefit to take a class on them or find someone who really knows how to use them to spend a day fishing with me.

You can only have 2 windows /split screen so not possible to have 50/200/gps all at once.

A question for you with the dual tranducer how accurate is the depth shown w/ the 35 cone? or do they compensate? Doesn't the 35 cone also show you the same information as the 12 just covers more area. I would think for trolling application you would only need the 35 cone. Where the 12 cone comes into play is on sharp breaks. Just my thoughts maybe my thought proccess isn't correct. For the extra $50 I would deffinatley get the dual cone!!

In my "expert" (?) analysis, the 50 and the 200 seem about the same except the 50 seems to show a wider area and hence some more fish show up on the 50, like when trolling deeper water. I interpret it this way, if the fish mark is on both screens, the fish is closer to below the boat, but if it only shows up on the 50 screen, the fish is farther to the side. For me, for whatever reason, when trolling in deeper water (I have experimented with trolling over deep water on Green Lake for walleyes)a lot more fish show up on the 50 screen and as I said I interpret this as fish moving or being to the side, and I should be using planer boards.

Anyway, thanks for the input eywarrior.

Since I started this and for what it's worth, the lowrance website recommends a 200 khz for freshwater applications due to superior definition and target separation and the dual frequency transducer for saltwater and for downriggers on the Great Lakes due to the 50 can read deeper and wider, (but with less definition). confused.gif

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
