      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 .

hi,

i know there was a thread about gps's a ways back... im ready to get another gps. im on my 3rd gps12 and it works fine. however, thanks to paul w, i got to see the lakemaster chip in action. after seeing it, i dont want to go any longer without it. is the lakemaster chip the best? is the H2O the best? i like a portable/hand held because of icefishing, although i have to admit, the color models are fantastic. where could i get the best deal? does it sound like i made up my mind? lol...maybe. from the old posts, it sounded like it was the best. just wanted to check it out again.

best regards,

minnesotatuff

I currently have the h2o and the chip and love it.Ive heard there is a color version of this out.Check chips out to see what you like better but the Lakemaster chip does zoom closer. I think Navionics is comming out with a new chip soon but im not sure when.Maybe the St Paul ice show will have more info on whats new,But i did see the h2o at sportsmans warehouse for 169 bucks .weather that was a sale or just a reg price ..not sure.

I recently bought the Lowrance iFinder Hunt and the Lakemaster chips with 256 MN lakes. So far I have been very impressed. They also make a "C" model that is color. I think the thing that I like best about the iFinder is that it is relatively easy and intuotive to use. My previous GPS was way more basic but was more difficlut to use.

I have heard good reports on the H2O as well.

I just ordered the iH20 color model from tigergps (Contact US Regarding This Word). for $218. I checked it out at sportsmans on Saturday, then went home & ordered it online for $50 cheaper! Should be here within a week.

Go to navionics & lakemaster's websites & look at the lakes that they offer on each chip. The thing is that Navionics covers a 5 state surrounding area & lakemasters covers just MN. I believe that navionics is more $$$. I chose lakemaster because they offer most of the lakes that I fish regularly. But, if you fish other surrounding states, check it out. Email me at my username (minus one of the 2's) at yahoo.

I just got a lowrance H2o c at the ice show for $229. It looks to be a good unit, I saw the lakemaster booth using it with the lake chip and decided that is what I wanted from santa. I am going to wait till feb. or march to buy the new lake master chip though so I can get the new lakes they just mapped this summer on it.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
