      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 .

Lowrance 522 for ice fishing

Recommended Posts

berfish

I have the lowrance 522i and want to use it in my truck for the mapping capabilities. Have any of you done this before by powering the unit with the cig lighter accessory plug? Do they sell this type of cable on the lowrance site? I contacted them but haven't heard back yet. Thanks.

Beerfish, you can purchase fused 12 volt dc receptacles for car lighters that have leads coming off of them. I bought one at Radioshack last year to run a 334 out of the car. I removed the female spades, replaced with male spades to plug into the 334. I'm pretty sure this will work with a 522 as well. Mine was an ice machine, so it had power leads with female spade plugs to hook up to the batteries terminals.

Your better off just buying the LEI cig plug.

I have my LMS332C set up on an old wood Genz box, using a RAM mount.

I then just lay the reciever on the dash, and plug in the unit to the extra power port.

The box sits on the transmision tunnel in the front, with the large 2 inch x 6 inch tall Ram mount it is perfect hieght to see and not be in the road of the radio or heater controls.

It works great, but I need to get a better system to mount the reciever as it will slide off the dash when you stomp the gas to catch the flock of geese your chasing.

I can send you some pictures tomorrow night if you give me your email addy.

Thanks for the replies. That is a good idea with the goose scouting with the GPS...never thought of that. I ended up buying the cig lighter adapter. I am going to buy another ram mount base and mount it on my marcum case some how. I want to use it in the truck and when I am walking out on the lake....which seems like most of the ice season here in the metro.

Thicken ice!

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
