      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 .

LowranceNet

Anyone using LowranceNet to link gps, temp sensors etc? I am have a LMS-332c and am in the market for another graph of the bow of my boat. I am thinking of something that I can move back to the dash for other times (trolling/downrigging). I was also thinking of putting a temp sensor in my livewell just for kicks, oh and a fuel flow sensor. So many options out there. Anything I should watch out for, any issues?

Thanks

The boat I am getting is coming with a 115hp Yamaha, On Yamaha's website it looks like the motor is setup for NMEA too. Can I hook the motor to my graph too?

If you want to know what will work and what you need go to Lowrance's website and click on the lowrancenet in the left upper corner on the home page. That will take you too a design page that You can drag and drop things on a design page and lowrance will verify that it will or will not work!

Will also let you print a parts list of the things you chose and lowrance verified will work together!

I have the LowranceNet, don't have a fuel flow sensor since my SmartCraft gauge takes care of that. My network has 3 head units plus a 4th location, gps antenna, temp sensor, and power connection on it. I like it, sure is nice for expanding and upgrading units.

I see on my Marine radio it says it hooks up to NMEA too. Does that broadcast GPS location in emergency? This sure seems like a cool way to link everything together. And buy a second graph cheaper w/o gps & transducer.

Thanks for the info.

You will still need second transducer, just not the second GPS reciever...most GPS untits come with the reciever anyway, keep it for a spare. The nice thing about linking is that a waypoit saved on one unit automaticlly saves to the second unit as well.

Wow I didn't know that about the waypoint between the 2.

I am planning on using the second graph with my trolling motor that has a built in ducer. The idea being that while trolling or on longer rides I could move the graph from the front to the dash and have 1 display for map and 1 display for sonar.

Okay, so you already have a sonar on the dash I take it?? Just want to have GPS option there as well?

So you would need the only GPS reciever to feed the unit when on the dash, and GPS and transducer when on the bow?

Sounds like that could be done....LEI or Lowrance dot net has a downloadable brochure or manual showing different linking setups, check it out an find one similar to what you want.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Thanks for your input, I got myself setup with braid and a fluoro leader and its working great!

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
