      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 .

lakemaster maps for gps

Recommended Posts

I have a Garmin map76s. I would like to get the Mille lacs 1' contour map on cd-rom to load onto my gps. Anybody have any experience with this? I went to their HSOforum and looked at the gps compatable list and the map76s is not on the list. Help please.

Thanks,Scotty

I got a demo of this software at the sportshow this last weekend. If I'm not mistaken I was under the impresson that you cannot download the map to your gps, but rather get coordinates and mark locations or waypoints and download those to your gps. Just want to make sure I got this correct.

Rick, does the actual map load or just the waypoints and routes?

Thanks,Scotty

[Note from Rick: Sorry Scotty, I should have told you that you can get more info or purchase your Maps at:
http://minnesota-lake-maps.com .

Especially nice for Ice Fishing Season. You can save a lot of hole drilling to find structure or your spots.]]

Not enough memory in the GPS units to hold all the ProMap Series lake map data.

You download and upload waypoints and routes. It's still pretty slick. Especially when you can download 500 waypoints and Print out your map(s) for the day. More than enough to keep you busy for a day or many of fishing.

You can get a ProMap Series MMC chip for Navionics enabled GPS units for close to $199. Those you can see the entire lake on your GPS unit. A Lowrance x15 is one of those units.

Same deal with C-Chip enabled GPS units. You won't see many of these in the Upper Midwest though.

Lakemaster Pro maps rock!!!!

Just ask the guys that fished Winnie this past weekend with me.

We had the whole lake loaded on the Laptop in the truck. We would upload good looking spots to the GPS and then fish those spots. GPS Coords were dead on. These maps will change the way you fish and will save you tons of time.

If anyone would like to see them in action, feel free to e-mail me. I will do my best to demo it for you.

SpikeRoberts, Thanks for the reply. this fall I also bought a i-finder, just the basic one. It was on close out so I got it cheap. I have the Lowrance LMS-320 in my boat. I also bought the Navtronics Hot spots MMC for it. I have tried and tried to get that chip to work in my i-finder but it hasn't worked. I even talked to a "expert" and he told me how to get the chip to work but nothing. Not to put any company down but I'm not very happy with Navtronics MMC. I've had a couple of chances to see the Lakemaster software in action. I think they have better detail and info. I wish I would have got the MMC Lakemaster offer.

Thanks for all the info. I really wanted to be able to put the whole map on my gps. I understand with the size of the map it won't fit. I really like the laptop idea. I think I need a new computer for work, If you know what I mean. grin.gif I think I'll look into some new topo software for hunting just in case.

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
