      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 Minnesota 101 CD

Recommended Posts

Guest

I've been out looking at the LakeMaster Minnesota 101 lake map CD online today and have seemingly missed something pretty fundamental about what you get with this CD.

Are gps waypoints part of the package? For example, if lake A is on the CD, are there waypoints for islands, bars, humps, etc in that water on the CD? If so, are they close (saw someplace where somebody said they could be off by 1/4 mile)?

Thanks in advance for your input.

A point of interest about the Lake Master software. I fished winnie this winter, going out at Judds Resort. I marked a way point at the boat landing on my e-trex as we got on the lake. Then thru out the day marked a few more. Getting back home I transfered the new waypoints from my gps to the Lake Master program. Then I checked the map of winnie. All of the new waypoints were there about where I would expect them to be. But the one that showed me the accuracy was the one I marked at Judds landing. If you zoom in on the winnie map you can see Judds harbor and landing cleary. The way point I marked showed to be right on the spot in the harbor where the landing is. Close enough for me:-)

bigeyes, I'm going another route for the real time tracking. Hooking my etrex to a laptop and taking that fishing. Besides a laptop's not really considered a fishing toy. Now how do I keep it dry??

Bodyman,

Love that response.

The Garmin can be interphased with your computer and pulled up on lakemaster software. Your GPS then acts as an antannae. When you enable the tracking mode on your laptop you can follow your route across the lake. I'm not sure about bringing the laptop in a boat, as it's my companies and I don't want to blow it up, but it sure works great for icefishing. A guy can sure cut down on the number of holes he drills grin.gif

Lakemaster software can be found here:

Yes, I just got my Mille Lacs one, it also comes with 100 other lakes, I have not fished with it yet, but it is impressive! I can't wait to try some of the spots I marked! D-man talked me into getting one, with his experience, I think it will be an excellent tool! I talked to the reps at the sports show and was told that Raymarine will have a real bottom chip for mille lacs within 60 days for the gps units they make. He also said they are currently working with Magellen, and lowrance on chips that they hope will be rolled out this year, in new gps units! This will be amazing when you can see this level of detail in realtime as you are trolling a breakline or point! Unfortunately the reps told me that so far Garmin has shown no interest in getting a map chip from real bottom in there new units, this makes no sense to me, I like my Garmin, but will switch to Magellen if they are too stupid to work with real bottom! My wife will kill me if I buy another fishing toy!
