      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 .

What chip for Rainy Lake, Redgut Bay?

Recommended Posts

BoxMN

Hi all,

We are planning our first trip to Redgut Bay, this summer. We have Lakemaster MN and Navionics North (2004) chips. But I don't think either of them has Redgut Bay on them. Do you know what chip would be best for that area? I have question in to Navionics, but no answer yet... We have Eagle 642c, if that matters, and it runs Navionics and Lakemaster both.

Also, any general info for that area? An old friend owns and runs a resort there, and we are planning to take our Dad up there this summer. Not sure how many more years he will be able to go, so want to do it right.

Thanks for any info. Dad will want to fish walleyes, my bro is into muskies, and I like them all, and smallies if there are smallies up there. Dates will be about the 20th of June.

Thanks much!

Navionis premium hotmaps North has the entire lake, including Redgut on it. It's also got ALL of LOW on there...it's a good chip.

Thanks G-Man!

I might as well update from my 2004 chip to the 2008. Good excuse to do it \:\)

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure mine is the '06, so if you get the newer one I'm guessing it's only going to be better.

Also if you go back a few pages you should be able to find out some good info on Redgut for the time you're going to be coming up.

Thanks again G-man. Looks like we are moving it to Aug 2, due to availability, and warmer weather for my Dad. I will have to search through here to learn more. Thanks!

All the fishing associates at Gander just learned about the new Navionics 2008 chips. The 2006 chip started out the craze with better detail in the mapping display and accuracy of the contours. In 2007 in got a hair better and a few more lakes were added. Most notable the North end of Rainy and the North End of LOW.

On the new 2008 chip Navionics really outdid themselves. They added just over 2,000 lakes to bring the total number of lakes on the '08 chip to 12,000. New HD mapping on just over 400 lakes(unfortunately not rainy) enhances viewing accuracy. Contour lines are withing 1' incriments.

Probably more info than you needed to know, but it never hurts to have extra info.

BTW, Redgut bay is a good choice and one of my favorite areas to fish. You will be hitting a good time of the year and I am sure your friend that runs the place will put you on some fish.

Take Care!!
