      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 .

Lake Contour Maps for Smartphones

Recommended Posts

I remember reading about being able to download Navionics I believe it was for Droid phones. Can anyone attach a link to this, or shed some light on it for me. I was looking at it on Navionics HSOforum and seen I can purchase it for $13.23 on smartphone market.

Anybody have this or use it?

Anyone know if this app has the contours to Lake of the Woods? That will sure save me money from buying the chip for my gps.

It does. and one foot contours, if that helps :-)

Make sure you get the Lakes maps, the Marine maps are just navigational aids.

Don't bother with the Lakes West app if you're from Colorado, it only has 4 lakes and 50' contours. It's nothing like their chips, which kind of suck too.

I have it on my Iphone and am only able to see contours very close to shore on LOTW. The rest of the lake is just white. Same with Upper Red.

Hey LipRipper,

Would love it if you would post a report on the results after you've compared them.

Thanks.

It is not available for Blackberry. iPhone, iPad and Android.

I downloaded it a few weeks ago for my Droid2 and is well worth the ~$13. I wish it would zoom in more then 0.1 miles. I updated the app last week. Not sure on the changes.

Update: Just took a video and uploading it now. Will post a link in a few mins (I forgot I left the cam in HD, so 50MB file). Latest update allows zoom further.

Already done! The Lakemaster is 100 times more accurate than any navionics chip IMO but I'm sure it depends on the lake...

Just had the app completely lock up and is now useless. It did this trying to enable map overlay. I will have to uninstall and reinstall. I sent a not to Navionics.

Love mine on iPhone. I can check out the lake I never had fished before and see the spot that jump out at me and memory the location and use it on my regular sonar/gps. It's pretty accurate. I like navionics better than lakemaster. JMO

I uninstalled and reinstalled the application and it still does not work. I emailed Navionics. Hope they can have a fix this week.

    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
    • Hi there, new here. Found this place because of this older topic.  We are planning a pole barn home on a slab. This is the 1st one in our township and the inspector seems unsure about the requirements for the slab "foundation" and insulation. When we started last year the old inspector said if the poles are through the frost level (42") you can just lay down a flat 4" slab. The new inspector seems to think it needs a foundation. Not finding much info online for this specific build. Plan as of right now. 4" radon pea gravel and barrier, 4" rock, 2" foam, heat tubes, steel mesh with 4" concrete over that. Someone here know the county (Isanti) spec for something like this? Township overrules county.  Thanks.   https://talk.newagtalk.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=376864&DisplayType=nested
    • BB gun?  Hows that for a 1st post?   
    • Ahh. Thanks for your story PRO-V. That’s what I’m trying to avoid. Plus it’s about 400 feet of hose to get to the banks...
    • A couple years ago I just got done plowing my driveway with the wheeler. Along comes an adult snowmobiler with his kid following behind. Guy crosses driveway and stops on top of opposite bank. Then he guns his machine sending all the snow back in the driveway. This is not a trail, just random ditch riders. Well I was outside and saw him do it. I jumped in my truck and cut him off at a road crossing 2 blocks away. I jumped out and royally chewed his azz and told him what a bad example he was setting for the kid. I think he got the message. For awhile after that I sprayed water on the banks to freeze them. No respect, they wouldn't want you doing that to their driveway.
