      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 .

lowrance map card offer

Recommended Posts

He's talking about the free lakemaster chip they are giving away when you buy certain models of fishfinders from them. I just sent mine in last week so I can't say how long it takes. The form has a number to call and a HSOforum to check on your rebate. It says to call them if you haven't received it in eight weeks. Only been about five for ya. But you can go to the HSOforum and see what the status is.

I sent mine in 6 weeks ago as well. I just recently received a confirmation e-mail linking me to the site that gives me my order status. Make sure you look at this and see that everything is correct. They had me down for Hot Spots South when I asked for Lake Master Minnesota...I haven't had the best customer service with lowrance so I hope it gets here before the end of the summer.

JimBuck, Funny you should mention that. I sent mine in as well and got a confirmation e-mail. It also had me down for the Hot Spots South when I had ordered a Hot Spots North. I sent them a e-mail back indicating that I didn't want or need a Hot Spots South card but have not heard back from them yet. We'll see what happens!

I got my chip yesterday. I think I sent in the order close to the opener. I went on-line to chekc the status last week and it said it found nothing with my information, so I thought I was over a barrel. Then, it shows up. I'm trying to read it on my computer but can't get it to read. I'm suppose to be able to do this, right?

You can't read them on your computer, in the old days it would erase your Nav chip if you tried to do that.

I've heard that you can download the emulator from Lowrance and then see the chip on the emulator screen, but I've never tried it myself.

Sent mine in on 5-12-08 and recieved it 6-23-08. My confirmation e-mail had the incorrect chip... had to send them a message to correct. Received the 07 Minnesota Lakemaster.

I had the same problem. On my confirmation e-mail it said HotSpots South for the chip I ordered..... crazy After calling them and speaking to someone I was able to change it. I think the promotion is being handled by a separate company so customer satisfaction/service is out the window on this promotion....

Good luck,

-CB

Got my chip today. Yep, they sent me the Hotspots South. Go figure....

I called the 1800 number on my confimration e-mail they sent me last month and it was a recorded message about meeting hot single girls in my area. That went over real well with my wife smile

I called the 1866 number on the rebate form that I had made a copy of and after several attempts I was able to talk to a human. The lady I talked to was going to talk to the manager to see if anything can be done and to call them back in 10 business days if I don't here from them. So now I wait.

I ended up buying a 520c on the 4th of July and so i wanted to take advantage of the offer. the side of the coupon that you chose the map card states that the coupon has to be mailed by 08-07-08 but the small print on the other side states that it has to be post marked by 07-07-08. I mailed it today. 07-08-08. I hope they still honor the offer. but i guess it will be my fault if i missed the boat on this free offer.

    • Sounds like someone's talking to much! Lol
    • I'd try those!!  don't save any for Glenn!!!
    • One of these years...
    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks? 
    • Sorry, but his 60 some RBI for someone who's hitting over .300 is exceptionally low.  Especially for the number of games he's played.
    • @MJ1657 That was good for a chuckle over breakfast.  I heard you might've had a less than flawless day yourself. 
    • Sounds good to me! Maybe blanch quick then into ice water like tomato's to get that skin off first....
    • I've never tried it but maybe a guy could peel the beets, cold smoke for a couple hours in a disposable aluminum pan. Then crank up the heat and cover with foil to cook tender. Maybe they would bleed out  without skins? Any juices could go right into the mix. I have plenty of beets to experiment with, I'm going to have to try it now. Smomed pickled beets mmmm!
    • Weather was perfect up here! cloudy, drizzly, 55 degrees. we shot quite a few ducks, geese. The first hour was solid. Lots of birds around, but then as usual it died down. I was surprised at the amount of hunters out there on this WPA considering it was a 1/2 mile hike to get to it.  Left at 9:00 when my son got cold. Will be looking at getting a game cart to haul all the gear back and forth. Maybe try it again next weekend before I get serious on bow hunting......
    • My son and I got 9. Should have had our limit. Lot of teal zipping around! Lot of mosquitos too!!
