      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 chip question

Recommended Posts

I'm buying an Ifinder H2O gps unit and I'm wondering How much the local (Minnesota) lake chip will cost me on top of the cost of the unit itself. Do I have to buy the chip or is it possible to borrow a chip from someone to load the info into the unit?

Visit Lakemaster, I believe they have package deals available that could save you a couple of bucks vs. someplace like Gander Mt.

Oh-Ya, You can barrow a chip from a friend to use in your new unit if you want to go that way.

Only thing is that when your buddy wants his chip back your SOL. In other words...it doesn't load anything to your unit and then you don't need your chip.

IMO spend the extra cash and pick up your own chip. Well, well worth it. You'll want the MN ProMap chip. $99.00 on the lakemaster HSOforum.

One cannot copy a chip. You will need to borrow one or purchase one for yourself. As stated above, check with some different vendors as there have been some deals out there at times for a chip included.

Thanks all... made the purchase. I figured 99.00 an investment I can use to make every trip out a bit more successfull. I hope my wife views it as such. For some reason I doubt she will.

fever, have fun with your new toy. sat in my boat in the garage for hours on end this winter when i first got it. the smaller lakes are just glorified versions of the dnr maps, while the enhanced maps are pretty sweet. having said that, these maps are not accurate to the foot and there will be differences with your sonar. it still will be a geat tool for your trips. for future reference, i always buy my boy stuff only after the mrs. go shopping fo shoes, purses, rugs, drapes, ....... ....... ........ .............................!

A hint - get the jobberdo that lets you run the thing off your cig lighter. YOu'll go through a ton of batteries otherwise. That chip will make you think you really are a fisherman!!!

    • Might want to have a talk with that tire shop, and have them properly reinstall all the other lug nuts before you have to. Plus, if any break they can fix them now. If any brake pulsation occurred after overtightening, that's one more thing to talk about. I also worry about stress factors on the studs. Once a bolt is stretched, it's done. About the only way to check for that is to get an OE stud and compare lengths. Cheater bar force likely means they were at least 3-4 times overtightened, maybe more. But, if you have uncapped nuts on an uncapped wheel allowing corrosion, it's on you.   Torque sticks are better than nothing but really should only be used to snug them down, then finish with a torque wrench.
    •   They should use a Torque stick when putting them on, but none do. Does she have the craapy lugs with the "Tin foil" cap over the nut? I love how those round off. I replaced all the Tin foil lug nuts on my SUV and snowmobile trailer with solid SS lug nuts. They cost more but, I hope to not be sitting half in half out of a snow cover ditch in the middle of no where trying to get striped lugs off!
    • Aluminum or steel wheel?
    • Nice of the Blues to go 4-5-1 in their last ten, they only have 1 point on us but we have two games in game. 
    • It's a red shrimp. Found one in St. Louis river. International shipping hauls this dump over here and then they harass the citizens about spreading it and cleaning it up.
    • My wife didnt relinquish the remote so I wasnt able rewind and get the full article but it was similar to the spiny water flee
    • I had to change a tire on my wife's car last week and found that the lug nuts were on so tight that the impact hammer wouldn't loosen them at all.  Granted it's a relatively cheap impact hammer but I wonder why I had to use a long half inch hinge handle and a piece of pipe to get them loose.  A tire shop had worked on the tires a year ago and man they must have really hammered those babies down.  Is there some torque setting that is out there recommending something like this?  Why?  I've driven for 50 years and I've never had a wheel fall off.  There's no way anyone could have changed that tire using the standard equipment you carry in the trunk.
    • So what is it this time? Fish or Crustaceans?  Do they have any ideas how it got in the lake yet?
