      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 .

SOLD ---- Eagle FishMark 480, like new

This is a great graph that's about 2 years old and has been used very little, it was mounted in my bow. It's in great shape and I never had any trouble at all with it. I'm selling it because I upgraded to a unit that's compatable with the Lowrance network.

The transducer is in great shape and has a built-in temperature sensor. All mounting hardware and instructions are included. As an extra bonus I have a Cabelas black neoprene screen cover for the graph, they sell for $10.

I'd like to get $140 for everything. 612.801.7967

Not to jump your post, but eagles are made by the same company as lowarnce. Might it possibly work with them?

Eagle units don't work on the network. I got my new unit last fall but held onto the Eagle until spring to sell it.

I just bought a boat and it came with a 480. Any tips on using the 480? I'll make sure to tell a couple of friends about yours. They may be interested.

Go to the Eagle web site and you can download a simulator of the 480. You can play with the controls and menus on your computer screen.

Do you know if the transducer would read through the hull of a kayak or not?

Tippman - If the kayak is fiberglass I assume it would read through the hull, but I don't know that for sure. That's a common application in fiberglass boats, attaching the transducer to the inside of the hull with epoxy and allowing it to shoot through the hull.

swmetroman - the tip about using the emulator is really good advice. Otherwise, you can get by with using the unit in the auto mode, just try it over known hard bottoms, known soft bottoms, weeds, etc to learn what the display is showing you. If you want to use it in manual mode, you can really dial in the bottom hardness and mark fish tight to bottom, but you need to know the basics of what you're seeing first. The best way to learn is to commit a 1-2-3 hour trip to just experimenting with the sonar and learning what it's showing you. If you have specific questions, try posting them in the Equipment or Open Water forums and you'll get many more responses.

When you say it was mounted on your bow, does that mean the transducer was on your trolling motor or is it a transom mount transducer?

It's a skimmer style transducer, it is not a puck style transducer. It can be used on a bowmount trolling motor or on the transom of the boat.

I had it mounted on my bowmount trolling motor with a $10 bracket that Lowrance sells for this purpose.

It comes with the the bracket you use to mount it to the transom. If you wanted it on the trolling motor you would need to buy the Lowrance bracket.

My kayak is made out of hard plastic called polylink 3 I believe. If it would read through the material normally I would be interested. If anyone knows chime in, otherwise when I get time I will ask around.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!
