      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 .

Lake map ?'s

Recommended Posts

JMo

I am looking at getting the Lowrance H2O GPS and was wondering if anyone in the area has one and if so what chip they use for lake maps. It looks like the Navionics Hot Maps LOTW and the Hot Maps North Chip has most of the lakes in the Bemidji area. I'm just wondering which would be best to get for the lakes around the area since I fish the majority in the Bemdji area.

I have a H2O and love it.. I run the lakemaster chip in mine and it does well with the area lakes... When getting a chip check out what lakes the company offers in HD or in the best contour possible.. The 2007 Lakemaster chip has Bemidji, Cass, Winnie, Pike, Leech, and a few more in the area in HD... Matter of fact the Bemidji lakes were labeled by our own Keith Dahl at Gander.. The referred to him for naming the structure..

Hope this helps...

Beef,

I was thinking about upgrading my systems. What would be a good price for the H20 and the lakemaster chip? I talked to Brian about upgrading this past summer. Always looking for imput from the "guys in the know" since you guys put a ton of time on the water.

Would a system like this be overkill for a flat lander who comes up to Cass for two weeks each year?

Windy,

This system would be perfect for someone who fishes twice a year to a guide who is out on the lake almost every day.. What I like about the H2O is it is easy to use and read, also it is easy to download and upload from the computer and it is SIMPLE... For pricing I haven't checked around lately, but if you want my help drop me an email and I will see what I can do for you...

Hope this helps,

Beef

I'll add another thumb's up for the H20 and Lakemaster combo. I know Woodman on here has the H20 as well, not sure if he has the Lakemaster or Navionics, but the Lakemaster chip is hard to beat for this area.

Buck I do have an H2O with the Lakemaster chip. Why do you think I am fishing where I am? whistle.gif

Love the unit, and the chip. Takes some time to get the bells and whistles figured out but with enough playing around with it you will figure it out!

Cabela's has the H2O for $169.00. I believe that Timberline sports in Blackduck also carries them for the same price. They also have the lakemaster chips for the unit also.

I also have one and use it all the time. They are a great unit for the price.

Good luck,

Kupcho

      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.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      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
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
