      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

Recommended Posts

I purchased the Minnestoa Lakemaster chip at a well known outfitter in North Central Minnesota on March 6th of 2008. When I got it home and installed it in my GPS it came up as "Copyright 2006". I was assured that it was the most up to date chip available. As of March of 2008 - would this be an accurate statement? Just would like to know if I got my value for my $$$...

I am still waiting for my chip to arrive via the rebate offer...It should be in the next few days and I can post then. It sounds a bit strange to me...but I have heard of people talking about the issue of chips being behind a year? Check the forum for the chip related threads, it wasn't long ago. Good luck.

Try this.....take the chip and zoom in on an area of the boundary waters, try outside of Ely. Look to see if there are marked portages and campsites on the screen (you may have to zoom in a bit). These features were just added on the 2008 chip. I borrowed a LM chip for a BW trip in early June because I had heard that it had the portages/campsites marked, but when i didnt see them I called LM and they said that it was just added for 2008. If you can't find portages/campsites marked then you dont have the 2008 chip. Or go on the LM HSOforum and find out what new lakes were added for 2008 and see if they are on your chip.

For the 2008 LakeMaster chip:

Packaging and chip should say "108-308TW Minnesota."

Startup screen should read "Copyright 2004 InfoUSA Copyright 2008 LEI Copyright 2008 ProMap Technologies, Inc."

I bought my 2008 chip at Cabela's on April 19, 2008, but I certainly wasn't the first in line. The salesman opened the package and examined the chip carefully to make sure that it was the new one, telling me that he had more than one come back with a claim that the old chip was in the new package...

I did a little search for you and came up with a couple of FM threads from last spring that talked about it.

In this one, markkstanley had information that the 2008 chip would be in stores March 31: http://www.fishingminnesota.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1330794/Lake_list_for_2008_MN_Lakemast

This one has a member named ortonville who bought the 2008 chip April 1:

JIGGS:

Looks like you got the older chip just before the 2008 came out. Like mnfishingguy said, the latest version always sells for $100 when it first comes out and then the going price for the old one drops to around $50.

PierBridge:

The descriptions you list match what's on my 2008 chip's packaging, but that's the first I've seen that model number (108-220). Here are the numbers of the MN LakeMaster chips I have owned:

2006: LKPM-MN 108-180

2007: LKPM-MN 108-203

2008: LKPM-MN 108-308TW

...and what could the 'TW' stand for??

I had the old package switch happen on me too. I went in for the 08 lakemaster and ended up with the 07 chip in the 08 package.

I brought it back and they gave me the 08 no problems.

    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.
