      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 .

Lowrance handheld GPS

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a unit that I can use with a Lakemaster chip for fishing that also works well for geocaching. Does the H2Oc or Expedition work well for both of these applications? Also, does anyone have any info on the new Lowrance Endura series? Are these units compatible with the new Lakemaster chips?

The H2Oc and Expedition are great choices for the LakeMaster card. I don't know anything about geocaching but you should have all the navigation functions with these units that you'd have with other units.

The Endura series is due out in May. I've heard rumblings that there's software issues with the map cards and that it will be a while before there's a LM card that will work in them ...... I don't know how true that is, but at this time there is not a LM card for them.

You can check out the H2Oc, Expedition and Endura series HERE at Pro Fishing Supply.

I have a H2Oc and I like it a lot. The Lakemaster chips work awesome in these units including the 09 Lake of the woods, Rainy Lake and Rainy River. The 1ft contuors on these chips are incredable! I also have the MN Lakemaster chip and it works just as good. The function of the Navionics I bought (and still use only on Birch Lake) chip didn't impress me on this GPS. I looked at several handheld units and in my opinion for the price a person can't really beat these GPS's

I've never done any geocaching but from what I'v heard about it these units should work just fine.

The only problem with the handheld units is that if you are using it in a boat a high speeds it can be hard to read. I only use mine in the winter know and got two bigger units for the boat.

I know several people who have used the Lowrance H2O for geocaching and they love it.

There is no doubt that a Garmin is the defacto standard for geocaching but if you will ever use your GPS for fishing then I recomend purcasing the Lowrance.

The H20 geocaching download can be found here for free.

Lowrance GPX converter

I don't konw much about the new lowrance but it claims out of the box compatablity with geocaching.

Talk to Gliby at any state geocaching get to gether and he will hook you up with everything you need to know about the lowrance and geocaching.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast

        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
