      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 .

Viewing Pictures from Game cameras

Recommended Posts

Neiko

I am thinking about getting a Game Camera but don't want to spend an arm and a leg right away. One I was looking at was a Moultrie I40 or D40 with neither has a LCD for viewing. Could I take a digital picture camera that reads SD and bring it out to look at on? I know this is a stretch but my Lowrance IHunt has a SD card in it so could I view it on there? Don't know much about game cameras so any help would be appreciated.

What I do is have extra cards, so I just goto each camera, swap in a clean card, and then take it home and view it on my computer - no standing out in the buggy woods. In order to do that, you need a card reader, get them at Best Buy or on Ebay, most just plug into the USB port. Get the type of reader that reads multiple cards formats, you never know when you'll get a different camera that has a different type of card. Right now some of my cameras use SD cards and the others use Compact Flash cards.

Yea, just bring out your digital camera if you want. We switch our cards out and view them at home - or in the shack if I bring my laptop computer.

I see the point of the question, cause if I was trying a new spot I don't want to leave my camera in a bad spot for another week if there wasn't anything worth photographing in the first camera set.

If you have a digi cam that accepts SD cards than you can view your game camera pics on your digi cam. That is a great idea. My camera does use SD cards and so does my GPS so I have plenty of cards, but I don't have any cameras (yet), so location is important. I will only check mine maybe every two weeks so if a spot is not producing I don't want to leave my only camera there for another two weeks to take pictures of nothing.

The problem is I have a desktop that has a card reader however that will be 130 miles away. I want to see the results on site but don't want to pay for a LCD on the game camera. My problem is I have a XD camera and the Game Camera is SD. Will pictures show up on my SD GPS? That would really be sweet if it did. This way I could make a lot more adjustments out in the woods and not have to wait so long with having to go back to a computer.

I highly doubt they would show up on your GPS. If you'd like to try, put your card in the card reader, upload a few photos to it and try it. Your GPS doesn't have software to read .jpeg files though so I doubt it will work.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.

      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.

      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff

      First fisherman seen trying their luck today out from McKinley park access and Stuntz Bay access.

      Definitely not surprised with this change. One might as well license the wheel house anyway.  Keeping it legally “occupied” is a pain just to avoid buying the license.

      A public meeting to discuss a draft transition plan for Hill Annex Mine State Park will take place Thursday, Nov. 30, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Calumet City Hall, 932 Gary St., Calumet. Legislation in 2017 guided five local partners (DNR, Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board, Itasca County, City of Calumet and the Western Mesabi Mine Planning Board) to work on an alternate operating model for local management and operation of the Hill Annex Mine. The work group has concluded that operation of the site as a park under any jurisdiction is extremely unlikely and is proposing a feasibility study to explore other local economic development opportunities that preserve the history of Hill Annex Mine, promote existing amenities along the Mesabi Trail, and better connect the cities of Calumet and Marble. At the public meeting, the work group will hold a facilitated discussion to review feedback on the draft project report. The report will be submitted to the 2018 Legislature. Interested members of the public are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
