      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 .

Hand Held GPS???

Recommended Posts

I know I have seen posts on hand held GPS's in the past, so I apoligize for this one. I just have a specific question. Which unit should I buy for MY personal needs as a fisherman and a hunter?

I do alot of open water fishing and alot of hard water fishing, so I need something that is chip compatable. I also want something that would work well for hunting out west. I will be going to Colorado elk hunting this fall, and to western South Dakota in the next couple years for antelope. I will be hunting in areas that I am not too familiar with, and I just want the added security, and the ability to scout an area before we head out. I don't really want to spend more that $500, and I've had my eye on the Lowrance hunt c model. Thanks in advance for any advise!

I have the Lowrance H2O. I also bought the mapping software to make maps for specific areas. Works real well for hunting, although I don't hunt out west. Total cost was, I think, around 350-400.

The previous threads that you've read gave you the same answers you'll get here. It's up to you. Each has its weak and strong points and for each person those will vary.

How can anyone other than you decide what's best for you?

I've done a little more research and I'm leaning towards the expedition c. It costs around $300. The unfortunate thing is that I would need to buy a lake chip ($100) and a seperate chip for out west hunting (another $100). What to do what to do?

The H20 is a great unit, until it fills with water! Had it for two years and put it in the pocket of my waders duck hunting. I did call they replaced it for $100.00. So much for water proof!

Still like it though just take better care of it.

Last weekend I tried my expedition c with the Lakemaster Minnesota chip. I was suprised at how nice it works, takes a bit of time to figure out how to use it though. if money is no object the hunt model would be the ticket.
