      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.

    • With 3 different Holiday get togethers in the next few weekends I'm booked until after the 1st anyway.  Have fun and give a report if you make it out.
    • I used to have the same kind of setup, it uses quite a bit of battery to run it. Especially when liquor is added and the volume goes up. I now use a portable radio and AA batteries. Works good enough. This year I have one of my kids old Ipod loaded up with music and one of those bluetooth rechargable speakers. Good for places without much radio station choices.
    • Hopefully it feeds better than some of the older WSSM type loads. 
    • I just registered my last week. you don't need a weigh slip but you need to know how much it weighs empty and what the gvw is. There are two spots on the homemade trailer sheet for those two numbers.
    • Thanks for all the replies and suggestions.  Having it plugged in isn't a necessity so I'll probably just skip plugging it in all together. I didn't realize that the block heater were that high of wattage so it'll be a much larger draw than I anticipated.   
    • Not sure but I do know that the GPS on the units is said to be a big drain on the battery. We checked to see if the GPS could be turned off and were told it could not.  The screen brightness on these units also has a big impact on battery life so the darker you can have the screen the better for battery life.
