      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

      I would avoid them if I were you.  All season.  There's often at least some current flowing through there and with these warmer winters, its just a bad idea.

      If your getting some pretty close shooting (and gauging by your photos you are in those setups), you might want to use an IC (improved cylinder) choke instead.  Spread that pattern out a little more and switch to some smaller shot size with more velocity, especially if you're mostly just shooting as small ducks like woodies. I almost exclusively use an IC until the calendar turns November, for ducks, pheasants, and grouse.  Later on when you get more shooting at bigger, smarter birds that are on the edge of range you could go back to a modified.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge

      Thank you for the responses everyone. You are correct Del I do not have the Fiber option.  We do use the Hot spot from AT&T at times but to be honest the Data does not last all that long, Even though we are right by Moccasin point & the tower is at the end of Frazer our signal is not the best at times.  We could also do DSL but according to one neighbor we may be faster sending up carrier pigeons & waiting for a response.

      It's been a 1/32 oz. unpainted jig head & a small split shot along with a crappie minnow for me most of the time. Still barely see the rod tip load or wiggle a little on the bite. Even tougher with the wind lately & 20' or more down.

      Any channel on any lake is dangerous.

      We are done as of Saturday as well. Was fishing in 35 feet in Smarts Friday and had a monster, monster fish on. Thought I was snagged for a few minutes, but then felt the wiggling. Fought if for probably five - ten minutes (drag flying out) and then up came an eight inch walleye. Never saw the monster, but guessing it was massive fish, perhaps a muskie? Anyone else ever have this happen?

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.
