      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 .

walldoggie,

Really hard to try to explain this all by posting back and forth. Best thing I can think of is write down all of your questions and give me a call. We should be able to get them answered within a couple of minutes.

If you plan on using it exclusively for water than the mapreate is not needed. The lakemaster chip will give you what you need to get to and around the water.

If you plan on using it for hunting/camping/hiking. Than Mapcreate will allow you to basically make a topograhic map of the area you will be in. You can then download it to a memorie card and then install that card into your H2O.

DO NOT INSTALL YOUR LAKEMASTER CHIP INTO A CARD READER!

I should have probably gave you a ring Paul before I ordered my H20 the other day. I figured that I'm going to use it to drive down the highway and to get my bum off the lake when the weather turns bad. Of course the Lakemaster MN chip will come in quite handy on a few lakes I plan on fishing this winter.

I didn't go with the Plus package, figured I probably wouldn't need it for my use. All I really want to do is find everyone else's fishing hot spots with it.

I copied my lakemaster chip to the comp. from my card reader and had no problems. The chip is fine and now I have a backup in case my chip gets mistakenly erased or lost. The rep. at gander where I bought it told me to copy it for safe keeping.

That brings up a question then, if you can copy the lakemaster chip to your computer, can you download all that back on to a different chip? So essentially making copies of your lakemaster chip?

Because then that would bring up obvious bootlegging questions i would have!!!!

Walldog, It's no difference then copying music that you have on cd at home that you puchased legally and made a cd of your favorite songs for your car. I beleive it's fine as long as you don't distribute to other people or sell it to someone to become illegal. Your just safeguarding your property. As long as you only have one useable copy at a time you are fine. I.E. windows opperating software that you purchase ( windows 98,2000,xp) is only legal to put on one machine even though you can put it on as many as you would like. This is where honesty comes in to play. It gives you the option to reinstall it if your system crashs. ONE WORKING SYSTEM AT A TIME!

I didnt mean to sound like i was accusing you of something bad. I was just thinking if that were possible i was going to need to find a friend who had a copy shocked.gif so i didnt have to shell out the 100 bucks now i could shell out the 100 when the new one came out in feb or march.

I'm still learning about the chip stuff myself. I have been told by two different people that it is not a good idea to plug in the Lakemaster chip into a card reader specifically the one included with the lowrance map create software.

I have heard that putting a Nav chip in a reader will erase the chip - in fact I think it happened to one of my buddies. The LM chip package says you can back it up, but doesn't go into any detail about how to do this. I want to make a backup copy of my LM chip, but haven't done so yet.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?

      On the lighter side, I am 'SpoonBillSlayer' on that other site. For whatever reason years ago when I joined these sites I used two different userids. Both odd duck names that fit an odd duck! I just wanted to get the new updates out on this mess, it just seems like the only people being notified of it are those in  lake assoc's.  We'll see what happens.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.
