      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 .

MMC Chip for Lowrance X-15

Recommended Posts

I got for Christmas the Navionics Hotmaps MMC Chip with 1' ReelBottoms Contours for White Bear, Mille Lacs, Leech, and Gull. Product (HM269XL) Is this the most accurate Chip. I have been reading about Lakemaster and various others and was hearing about inaccurracy issues.

Has anyone used this and are they accurate?

I used the reelbottem chip for the first time last year on Gull lake for a walleye tournament and it is very accurate finding inside turns and points on structure was really easy.
But did find some structure that was not on the chip. But all in all still well worth the money

You have the most accurate chip. I've used it for a couple of years now it is great. Gull and Mille Lacs are awesome. I've talked to other huys that have the hot spots chip and they are not as good.

Thanks guys!! I talked with a guy from Lakemaster Maps at the Sportsman's show tonight and he stated the same thing. It's good to hear he wasn't just feeding me a line.

I have used mine on Mille Lacs and Leech. I found it dead on and well worth the money. I also use it with an x-15. smile.gif

I have the MMC for my X-15 from Navionics.

Some lakes it's on, others , like the St. Croix it is 200 Yards off !!!

When I'm fishing Big Winnie, on Big Muskie Bar, the actual dropoff is about ** 10% ** of the distance it says on the map !!

Not that happy with it...

Hopefully the MMC cards for the I-Finder will be available soon,none of the Maps available will work with this unit. I have heard that the Navtronics maps are real good tho..

I heard the only Accurate Map/Chips are the ones produced by Navionics that contain data originally surveyed by Reelbottom or Lakemaster. Hotmaps just uses DNR Surveys and they tend to be less accurate.

danny (or anyone else),
Is lakemaster actually developing a chip for the ifinder? I ask because I'm in the process of deciding on a handheld GPS and if they are developing a compatible chip that would seal my decision. The way I understand it is that the ifinder will only run a 128MB chip (the new ifinder pro runs 512MB) and the current lakemaster chips are larger than that. If they make the smaller MB chip, will all the lakes available on the current generation of MMC chips be available on the new chip or will they have to eliminate some lakes to reduce the MB? I'm still rather low on the GPS learning curve so any help would be appreciated. Maybe I should e-mail Lowrance and/or Lakemaster.

Only the ifinder PRO will work with the navionics chip. I spoke with the nice people at Cabelas and he verified this with the guy at the sports show. I saw Reeds have a Pro there with the chip in it and it worked great. Supply is a little short right now on them, but they expect them in the next couple of weeks. Wait for the Pro model. The other option is if you already have the reelbottom map on CD, you can get the software from Lakemaster at the show for $15 that you can download the waypoints into your chip. They can better explain it.
Good luck and tight lines.

    • Canned beans? Hmmmmmm......might be real mushy, as they're already "cooked". Let us know.....
    • I have this recipe more or less going in the crock pot at home right now. Just used cubed ham, no liquid smoke, and canned beans instead of soaking dry ones. A bit concerned the beans will be mushy, but all the online comments said they wouldn't be. We'll see.
    • Yup. Pour ingredients in bag with souse-o-matic; come back in one week. Enjoy while eating close to bathroom. 
    • Relax don't poop a truffle!  Pictures just help give better idea of all your wonderful cooking.
    • Do you have a Swiss Verde version of that recipe for Del?   Looks delish and a great idea for those hocks I have in the freezer.
    • Just the thing for those cold, windy days....my bean soup. I like to have some ciabatta's with melted swiss on top as an accompaniment.                  Bean ‘n Ham Soup                                                                                   1 16 oz bag of Navy or Great Northern beans 3 smoked ham hocks plus ham trimmings/chunks, about 2 cups, or you can use 2 thin-cut cooked and smoked ham steaks, cubed, in place of the trimmings 1 tsp salt ½ tsp Basil or 2 Basil leaves ¼ tsp Rosemary 6-8 peppercorns 2 Qts (8 cups) water 1 very large onion, medium chop 2-3 ribs of celery, diced small, about 1 full cup 1-2 large chopped carrots, (I use baby carrots),  about 1 full cup 8-10  drops (bit under 1/8 tsp)  of liquid smoke Veggies should equal 2 full cups PLUS ½ onion. Soak beans overnight in 2 qts. of water, then drain. I like to soak them 6-7 hours, too long and they get too "mushy" when cooking. Combine first 7 items, except the cubed ham steak, and bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered for 2 hrs, stirring occasionally. Take out hocks and Basil leaves; remove and return to soup any meat from bones. Stir in onion, celery, carrots , cubed ham, liquid smoke, and continue simmering, covered, for 45 mns - 1 hr. or until beans and veggies are tender. Remove cover and let soup thicken as desired. I like mine thick. Remember, it will thicken as it sits. It also freezes well, this gives ya a large bowl to eat and 4-5  one and a half cup containers to freeze.

    • No pic rules that I know of....this IS the food thread, also used for posting recipes. Not everyone posts pics. I usually do, a lot of others don't. Was riffling thru my recipes and decided to post that one for others enjoyment...but it seems there's always some negative blathering on this site, isn't there?
    • Never been a fan of the the vexilars they all give me a headache. LX7 over the LX6 just because its got a bigger screen.
