      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 .

The best thing to do is to just sit down and read the owners book. Also make sure u have plenty of batteries. LOL. I just traded my h20c in for the expedition. Love being able to watch the pressure history! Good Luck.

I was waiting for that answer!

But really I have gone over it a few times....I got a ton of batteries and Im glad I do cause that thing is a battery hog.

The more I think about it, I can't remember if it had the E.V. symbols before, I remember seeing the symbols for bouys and rocks so it possible....With some of these lake maps they are soooooooo detailed that im even more at a loss for spots to try if that makes sense.

I think im gonna like this toy!

There is a way to do a master reset. Too long to explain but if you go to google and search for reset on h2oC you will get it. I had to do it about 3 months ago and it worked great. You will lose any and all info you have in it though \:\(

There is also a menu option to restore factory settings, I don't recall exactly where it is or what it's called but it should be easy to find. Look under the gps or system setup options on the 2nd memu screen, and make sure you're using the advanced menu settings. It's all described in the manual if you can't find it on your own. Good luck.

You could plug the thing in to your cigarette lighter and avoid totalling all the batteries. If you don't want to sit in a cold garage you could rig up a female cigartte lighter with a short wire and a couple allicator clips and attach it to your boat batter, a gel cell or whatever you have sitting around not being used.

Craig P first, take out your chip and turn it back on. Then go back to your lake on the gps. This will tell you if it was something you programmed on your gps or if all that E.V. stuff was on the chip. If all that stuff is still there you can delete it, if not that means it was on the chip from the factory and I don't think there is much you can do to get rid of it[it probably was already on the chip]. I have never done the master reset thing, but i'm not sure if you should do that with the chip installed. Cause there is ways to delete all the info on the chip, then you will have spent a bone for nothing. Call the place you bought it to double check.

Craig go to map cat., then to water, then at the bottom of the screen use your center arrow and scroll to the right till you get to vegetation and uncheck this. Hope this helps.

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.

      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.

      Most coho being on Minnesota side are 12" - 17".   Occasional bigger fish.  Very few 3# pound fish.

      SM, Nice meeting you today! I am sure we will see each other again! We ended up catching 6 walleyes and 6 tulibees. Kept 3 walleyes from 14" to 19-3/4". We quit at 1:00pm also.

      drove around the lake last night, the open spot has moved east back to halvorson pt. and extends west/ northwest and has gotten much bigger.  numerous small spots opened up west of peters resort to baycrest. I would say from the beach to a little before halvorson pt. over to the dnr landing and west to bottle bay should be good to go, that's where the majority of houses are out.
