      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 .

Going to bite the bullet huh? I finally had to do same thing towards the end of last years ice season and got the H20C. Go for the lake master chip and go for the H20C if it is in the budget.

Maybe see ya Rush sometime, (then maybe you can show me how to use mine grin)

Congrats on the future purchase... I think you'll like it.

What's an XOG?

Lowrance XOG GPS - it's a cross over that can be used for outdoors, and also int he car. It has some downfalls from all the research I've done (shorter batter life, not water proof), but for what I need, it should work. Also nice to have one that works well in the car too.

I see this is a lake master ad. Kidding any way get a chip. If you have a snowmobile or atv. Get a mount and install the unit.Its nice to look and see where you are going in the winter to.

Does the Lakemaster chip include all the lakes in MN? I just received one also and I was trying to figure out which chip I should get but when I was researching what lakes are on them I could not find that anywhere on the internet. Can a person also purchase a chip for these of roads?

The lakemaster chip will allow you to zoom in much further than the navionics chip, but the navionics have more than just minnesota lakes... i believe the navionics chip has N.D., MN, MI,and IA, but the lakemaster only has Minnesota lakes...

I got the Lakemaster, and my buddy got the Navionics.

My buddy wishes he had gotten the lakemaster.

Here is a link to the lakes on the lakemaster chip, check to see if the ones you fish are here. There are many that I fish that dont have contours but I can still save waypoints on them. Many many lakes though!!

From what I understand, the H2O units are going away from the standard Lakemap format. In other words, you won't be able to use the same chip in your boat depth finder and the H2O in the future. The new h2O units will use the micro SD card, or at least a different one than the boat models use.

I'm not sure when the changeover will occur, but really a bummer if you ask me.

This info came from a salesman at a large sporting goods retailer, who had just talked to a rep from Lowrance. The rep said they've had all kinds of people contact Lowrance to tell them they're making a big mistake, but no luck. It's one of those "corporate" decisions that leaves the customers hosed.

    • My budget would be more like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Raptor-Whisper-Air-Rifle-177/dp/B01AMAO86Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1513086150&sr=8-2&keywords=22%2Bpellet%2Bgun&th=1&psc=1   And you can get this one in either .177 or .22 evidently.
    • A gun is a gun, I like them all! This one is BA but a lot more than I personally would spend on an air rifle..... https://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/tactical-armada-22-pcp-1000-fps-028478145122.do?sortby=ourPicks  
    • Thanks for the extra pics.  Always nice to see how other houses are built.  Enjoy your new house.
    • The slush copter works great until you get into the 4' ice on LOW.  I still use the slush bucket in combination with the slush copter, the Nils auger likes to throw ice/slush and it keeps more off the floor and the walls.
    • Is that paneling on the walls and ceiling or what is it and where did you get it? Thanks.
    • Five of us had fifteen on Saturday in five hours of hunting. I would agree with bobberineyes that there does seem to be pockets of birds. The numbers are definitely not more than last year around here but about the same I would say. I have talked to a few farmers though that said they saw less while combining corn than last year. Should be able to get into the cattails pretty soon and that's always a good time.
    • Sure it is.  A high powered pellet rifle is almost a necessity if you can’t be cracking off 22 long rifles around the house.  I’ll have no further contributions to derailing this thread. 
    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
