      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 .

Well, I use a old handheld garmin 12XL for ice fishing.

And for open water I have a Lowrance stand-alone 5300C GPS and a 510C locator.

Now that I have the Navionics chip, I am eyeing up a color handheld for next icefishing season (can you say Xmas grin.gif )

H2O for ice fishing...For open water I use a 510C sonar and a 4900M GPS..(the 7" screen and separate sonar screen is good for my 60 year old eyes.)

Three Lowrance. ....after spending last 26 years in Tucson..electronics was biggest evolution I've seen in fishing after my self imposed exile.. I'm amazed every time I use them.... cool.gif

I have a 25 & a H20 for now. I think when its time to upgrade I may work my way into a Raymarine set up, with auto-pilot, radar, and such. For now I am more than happy though.

My dad just picked up a lowrance gps sonar combo with the color screen. It is pretty sweet but for some reason it has a hard time pickin up satellites. It might just be a weak receiver in the unit but we do have one on our boat that works better. Any reason why this is?

My Algoma fishing buddy just picked up the Raymarine. We will be trying it out this weekend. I think the model number is C70. It should be fun.

I run the H2Oc year around, for now.

Fishin Fix, if you would be so kind to shoot a report in the Wisconsin forum that would be great. I am heading out there for the annual week on the 12th.

Man I love Algoma, and Algoma loves my friends! smile.gif

Cheffrey, I will be sure to do that.

Another friend was out there last weekend on a charter, and landed 30 with mostly kings in the 10-15lbs range. Six guys on board.

Wow.. Lowrance wins by a landslide! I wonder why. I like Garmin's software (both on the unit and PC) better and the color screens are much easier to see in bright sun. I use the 76CSX with Lakemaster MN maps.

I use a Garmin Rino120 for all my hunting, fishing, traveling, and farming. It's nice to be able to carry my GPS and two-way radio in one unit rather than two.

I use Garmin's Minnesota Lakemaster software, USTopo land contour, and US Roads and Recreation for highway mapping.

The unit has plenty of memory (8M) for mapping details, has nice features, easy to operate, GPS accuracy is great and quite often to within 7 feet, and their service has proven second to none. On the flip side, I would prefer a larger screen such as on the Map76, I would also prefer color screen which is available in other Rino models.

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
