      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 .

It's me again; and I have more questions. smile.gif

I just received my CD of US roads and Rec. and am wondering after I downloaded it to my computer; should I down load that right away to my GPS or...plot out a route and the download. What's the best way to go about this?

thanks!!

I does not matter what you do first. The area you download the detail for are by counties with that CD so just do a little playing with it first to be sure you get the areas that you want within your memory limit.
And you will stil need the CD to build the map prior to downloading.

Lakemaster software only functions as a waypoint management system for a GPS. It is compatable with most Garmin, Magellan or Lowrance units. Memory size is dependant on how much information you want to download off CD purchased with Garmins name on them. How much information you put on depends on how much detail that given area has. Metro areas has lots of data South Dakota not as much. Each area is different and each map you build will be different. But 8mb should be sufficient for most people.

I am new to GPS mapping units and I am considering buying the Garmin GPSmap 76 but I want to use Lakemaster software.Is this unit compatible with this software?.This GPS has 8mb of storage,will it be enough?
If it does work together does the actual map show up on the screen of the GPS or do you just mark coordinates on the map on your computer and then those waypoints are transfered to the GPS unit?

I bought the Lakemaster software and a GPS MAP76 at the ice fishing show. I have transfered waypoints back and forth.

I'm also new to GPS.

This is a slick deal. The base map in the GPS unit shows the small roads leading to Mille Lacs, but there is no detail of the lake(s). I can't wait for the day when we can walk/ride with the map and see yourself moving on the contour lines.

The interface to GArmin MAP76 is not listed in the software - I selected the MAP12 from the drop down list in the LAkemaster software and worked just fine.

Not sure if I'm using GPS correctly - I think I'm getting +/- 20 foot accuracy on Mille Lacs. I was expecting 9 feet or less.

Would be interested to hear from others.

Jess,

The cost of lakemaster varies depending on what edition that you buy. I have used LakeMaster for the past 2 years and absolutely love it. Here's the link to purchase it.

If you have any other questions ask away

OK, I was actually @ Galyan's and I was going to purchase this lake software and the salesman talked me out of it. And reading through the brochure, these maps can be off by up to 1/4 a mile. It seems like this is quite a bit! What are your thoughts on this, or how do you deal with it being up to 1/4 of a mile off?


p.s. Shame on me for going to Galyans and not supporting FishingMinnesota.com

This should've been included in my last post. But what's the REAL difference between the
LakeMaster Mille Lacs Reelbottom (600)
LakeMaster Mille Lacs King Tutt's Walleye Whiffer II Edition (602)
and
Lake Master Minnesota (603)


Is the 600 worth spending and extra $35 for what appears to be a better mapping of Lake Mille Lacs? Or does the 600 have better mappings of the 100 other lakes in Minnesota?

Thanks again,
-Jess

They trolled Mille Lacs to create the one foot contour version of Mille Lacs and a couple others. Their web site claims they don't use scanned/raster maps as a basis for the gps points. I think they use GIS data/vector to create the other lakes.

General accuracy? The Mille Lakes map is right on - I placed my house within 3 feet of the point shown on the map when I transferred waypoints. Using WAAS on the Garmin map76.

Too bad, it looked good on "paper" the spot was not so good. Oh well, the software is fun.

    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college    http://www.munsingerclemens.com/the-gardens/munsinger-gardens 2 areas, up top and down by river
    • Free agency is far from a sure thing, if there are young centers out there (big if) you have to compete with maybe 10 or 20 other teams and pay way over what you should. You have control of nothing and are at the whims of a player everyone is chasing. Same with trades, very easy to swing and miss. By most account we were in on Ryan Johansen with the Preds but Columbus wanted Jones over Brodin and I don't blame them. 
    • Good stuff but time wiill tell. Not buying the "oh we might lose him as a UFA"...so what, with that kind of money we could buy just as good and younger to give us more of a future...which we desparately need to be thinking about.  Fletch is walking a tightrope and it is going to break IMO.
    • Come on BB, you are better than that. You as much as anyone know that ONE player doesn't make an NHL Team a Stanley Cup contender so why put that blame on him. Sure, a player like Crosby certainly helps, but we aren't talking about the money that Crosby is getting here either. Comparing Koivu's contracts to equivalent players with similar production is quite compelling. He has performed better than many of his peers for his current contract and with the lower AV of his new deal if he continues similar numbers it will be a bargain. I wasn't too happy about the NMC either, but I take that as a bargaining chip so CF didn't have to go with a longer term deal. 2 years is sufficient and I think it works well for both parties. You are right, there are many people out there with more knowledge about the market and what he could have gotten elsewhere and when it may have made sense to sign him, but the fact is you don't want to wait to sign him until after the season for if no other reason at all than to allow him to be a UFA and hear other offers. This will be my last post about the Koivu extension because clearly we don't see eye to eye on whether it made/makes sense, but I assure you there are a large number of "hockey minds" that are in agreement with me on this. Here is some afternoon reading for you: https://www.hockeywilderness.com/2017/9/20/16332552/mikko-koivu-contract-extension-minnesota-wild-criticism-overpaid-chuck-fletcher-cap-space
