      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.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
