      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 .

Alright guys, this is one of things that only the people at FM can help out with. I just bought a used LMS 350a for REALLY cheap. Everyhthing works great and is in wonderful condition. This is a stab in the dark, but I NEED TO FIND THE LGC 1 GPS MODULE. I know they are rare and discontinued. If you have any idea where I can find one, PLEASE let me know. If you currently own one, I'll make an offer you won't be able to refuse. The only one I found so far was on ebay, and its gonna be pricy by the end of the aution. And yes, I am begging.

OK Now I'M REALLY CONFUSED! I have been calling Lowrance and everybody else who sells The equipment and I was told that unless you have a software version above the 4.7, you will not be able to use the LGC 12, What version do you have? IF what you say just happens to be true it would save me a lot of trouble. One lady at Lowrance said the unit could be upgraded for around 45 bucks and another guy said they would have to take out the mother board and replace it which would cost almost 300 bills. I'm losing my hair at the age of 19. I need someone who knows the truth.

Yes you do need the current software upgrade if you not at 4.7. Power the unit up and it should say the current version. What i would recommend doing is taking the unit to Fish-electrioncs in mpls. For $100 and your unit, you get a brand new unit with the upgrade included. They also sell the LGC-12 for 249.99 new. Which is cheap. If you want their #, e-mail me. The owner is name Doug. Ive been doing business there for years.

So basically its a trade in costing 100 bucks. And to get what I want it would cost close to 400 Bucks, for the LGC 12 and an upgrade. Correct? And what do you mean "Brand new unit"? Thanks for helping me out here. Its VERY much appreciated.

BG, If your unit is indeed a 350 (A) it should be able to use the 12ch. I sent in my 350 (no a) and when returned, I opened the box it was a 350a, with a note that the upgrade had been installed.."brand new unit"

Yes, if its a 350a check the version when you power it up. Or take it to a lowrance dealer in St.Cloud and have them hook up the LGC-12 before you buy. My upgrade was $100 because my old unit of 8 years had a short. So you may get it for less through Lowrance like MM suggested.

MY current version is 3.6. And yes it is a 350a. But the software version depends on the year it was made.(I Think?) The only reason that an ugrade would be necessary would be so that I could run a 12 channel Receiver (LGC 12) Right? I would like to talk to doug and see what he recommends doing in my situation. Maybe I could have him do the upgrade. You guys think there is much of a difference between the LGC 1 and the LGC 12? other than speed of tracking satelites?

D man,

I gave Doug a jingle, he said that an upgrade now a days would cost about two hundred bucks. Good thing I still got my handheld.

No I didn't get the either of the two that were on ebay. One was a 12 channel that went for 171. AND THE ONE I WAS BIDDING ON WENT FOR 330! Somebody wanted it bad.

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
