      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 .

Custom GPS Minnesota Lake Maps

Recommended Posts

Anybody given these a shot??? I've used them on a number of different lakes and been very happy with them. I'll admit to being biased, the map service person is a buddy of mine, but I can honestly say with pure objectivity that it's a good product that they're selling that'll cut down on goof off time and increase your amount of fishing time.
If you fish a lake that's not included in other mapping services and you have a gps, give it a shot. For the small fee they charge per lake you can't go wrong.
I'd like to hear your experiences with this software if you've given it a shot.

Minneman,

I bet you got the Big C map, didn't you? I got it from Kirsch a while ago and it's pretty dang good. Get out and give it a try-let me know how you like it.

What a super idea! I have a few of these maps and use them during the soft water season, but I know I will really use them on the ice! Great for any time of the year and easy to use. So many options to use if you choose or you can use it in it's simplest form. It helps me avoid having hundreds of waypoints on my gps at one time. I simply download the ones for a particular lake on a particular day.

When I saw this thread, I couldn't resist adding to it. The beauty of the service is you choose the lake. It isn't restricted to just the high profile lakes across the state as the other products typically are.

Here are just some of the ways you can use the maps:

1) Mark unlimited waypoints anywhere you wish on the map. Upload and download them from and to your GPS.
2) Mark tracks and upload them to the GPS
3) Download tracks and see where you have been fishing. Also, this allows you to save exact trolling patterns. How cool is it to save trolling patterns from your favorite lake and come back a year later, and upload those tracks and follow the same course.
4) Measure distances on the lake.

Good Fishing!

Ahhh yes,
it's great adding to the list of lakes we can now get GPS coordinates associated with the lake map.

This is going to be an awesome tool for finding your spots during ice fishing.

Just pull your lake map up, click on the spots and you have your GPS coordinates. Then your GPS takes you right to your location on the lake.

I'm looking forward to saving a lot of time with these powerful maps.

Pick your favorite lake(s) and get the map(s) for yourself. You'll be glad you did.

    • The walleye bite remains strong!  Report is very similar to last weeks. Walleyes are staged in front of Pine Island, Graceton Beach and Zippel Bay in 18-30'.  Anglers sorting through a few small fish for every keeper.  Most anchored up with jig and shiner.  Pink, pink/white and gold have been the best colors. Reefs holding fish as well.   Rainy River anglers finding success up and down the river.  Schools of shiners coming into river randomly right now.  When they do, the walleyes are close behind.  Some days excellent, some days catching fish but not a slam dunk based on whether shiners are moving through.  Vertical jigging tipped with a shiner while anchored is the go to method. Some anglers trolling crankbaits with success as well.  Smallmouth bass, pike and crappies showing up.    Up at the Northwest Angle, in MN waters walleyes are crushing jig and shiners. Orange and chartreuse were the hot colors this week. Big pike being caught trolling minnow baits.  In Ontario waters, minnow/shiner have been effective off of points at depth of 18-26' while anchored or trolling.  In addition to walleyes, crappies on fire and jumbo perch active!  Some muskies being caught trolling.  
    • Well, some good things, some bad things... We didn't pull of the win on the road as I'd hoped, but I think there were some positive take-aways... Defensively, we aren't fixed, but we are looking better. Taj jumped off the screen last night with his aggressive D. I think his presence will help a lot! We played good defense at times, but it was VERY streaky. It seemed that throughout the night SA went up by 8-10, then we buckled down to pull with a bucket or tied it up, repeat... Butler looks like he needs a few more games to gel with the boys, but I think his addition can't be overstated. If even for one game, he seemed to light a fire under Wiggins. If we can get some form of consistent 3 point shooting, we will be talking a lot more about wins than losses this year!
    • Way to go B$G 10 hockey, probably one of the greatest rivalries in hockey, Gophers and Fighting Hawks, this weekend and it's not televised.
    • I saw a couple smalls bucks sparring this morning. There was a small doe near them and one of the bucks chased her around for a little bit. 
    • I know they drum quite a bit in the spring but I've been hearing drumming this fall. I'm not hearing as many as I do in the spring. But I'm sure hearing a good number of them drum  Are they  searching for a mate in the fall?
    • I was out 2 weeks ago around Duluth and saw a smaller buck either a 6 or small 8 pointer chasing a doe.  She wanted nothing to do with him.  I'll be back out this Sunday and Monday hoping to see a bit more activity. 
    • Thanks Hoey.  At that price I think I will just go with the foam board insulation.  It's such a small area left to insulate and that way I can avoid the mess and the headaches.  Plus I will be able to get it a full 2-3/4" thick throughout. My next project I think may be to replace the dinette table with a jackknife couch.  Any idea how long those come?  The longest I've seen so far is 72" which to me sounds too short for me to sleep on comfortably since I'm over 6' tall.  Does anyone carry bigger sizes, or do most people build them so they sleep with their head on the armrests?
    • They make mounts where the TV sits out a little further and you can mount a couple smaller appliances to the mount behind the TV with straps.  Not an option for some as the TV may stick out a few more inches but worth considering if you don't want a separate cabinet. 
    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard.
