      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 .

What chips do some of you use for your lowrance gps units. I am talking blank chips, my dad has map create and i want to make a chip or two off of it. What chips have you guys had success with? Are there chips that you can re-write over? Also, where is a good place to get a decent selection of chips? thanks in advance

Any SD/MMC will work I wouldn't go with anything under 512 MB, even the 2 gig card's are pretty reasonable now a days.

I usually watch the Sunday paper circulars for good deals you can expect to pay between $10 and $70 for a SD card.

My Camera uses SD cards as well so I get to use them for other applications which is nice.

Good Luck.

i got an SD card from walmart today. when i went to create the map it said "please insert mmc/sd card". do i need to get a chip that is mmc and sd? i didn't look close enough to the package and noticed it only says SD, no mmc.

NO any SD card will work.

Are you using the Mapcreate card reader or a different card reader?

You should buy a large chip for the MapCreate because the program will only write to five different chips and that is it. It is written into the programming. You can change the content of any of the chips, but only those chips can be written to.

It is the mapcreate card reader. I will try again and see what happens. I did see that you can only use 5 chips so i bought a 1GB. Should do the trick.

Since I got an H2Oc handheld with the MN Lakemaster chip and then the 334GPS / Depth Finder, I wanted to create a chip that would work in both units. Right in the booklet it stated that the chip owner can create one copy for backup or archive, but when I copy the contents of the GPS chip to a standard SD Ram chip, it cannot display the contour info. It must be another file type that cannot be copied to a standard SD Ram Card. I see the Lakemater Chip has onlt 4 gold pins with a printed circuit, and the regular SD Ram chip has 5 or 6 pins. Like the Lakemaster chip is proprietary use hardware. The weird thing is, that you can download an advanced Gull Lake lake map from the lowrance website, put it into a standard SD Ram card, and it will display correctly in the GPS unit, all depth contours visible. I need to figure out how to do this correctly.. maybe importing the Lakemaster data into Map Create, save data back into a big SD Ram card, and then I will hopefully have 2 chips.. one for the hand held and one for the boat unit334. Anybody out there try to make a good working copy? Any suggestions are helpful. Just like I didn't know the Lowrance reader will onlt use 5 cards. EVER. Thanks, Paul W.

      They can’t really move it back because the teal and woodies would be gone

      I went out for duck opener near Milaca and it was sweltering HOT.  It was even cloudy/drizzly for a portion of the morning and it was still unbearable.  The DNR needs to move all these major hunting season openers back a week.  Its pretty obvious that fall is getting hotter and hotter.  We got 6 ducks and 2 geese but so it was at least a somewhat decent hunt but that didn't make up for the fact that it was like hunting in Louisiana.

      +1 on the Smooth Moves.  I installed them on my 1860 Ranger last spring and couldn't be happier with the performance in big water.  Lot's of adjustment and they do a great job of soaking up the rough stuff.  They are a little bulky compared to the other options, but I like the fact that they rely on a mechanical adjustment rather than air.  It would be interesting to sample them side by side in the same boat to really see if one is smoother than the other.  A friend of mine has the Wave Pro and he is happy with that also.  I was close to getting the air wave, but I'm happy I went with the Smooth Moves and would buy them again over the other two.  Good luck with your decision.  No matter which way you go, your back will be happy!

      I am still fishing mostly lindys with minnows but getting a few on jig/minnows also. We boated 13 walleyes and 7 jumbo perch this morning. Largest walleye was 21" . Most came out of 24' to 38' depths, close to rocks. Cliff

      Fished Saturday morning and trolled my way a half dozen eyes including a fat 26” plus two giant smallmouth.  Went back out Saturday evening put the trolling rods down and went Jig rappin.  Caught another 6-7 fish including another nice 26+ that popped off as I fumbled to grab the net as it wallowed around next to the boat. Tricky bite for me.  Still managed my limit of nice 16” fish.  Fishing mainly rock transitions and rock structure in 16-22’ fow.   I will be back in two weeks for my final hurrah before heading west to the mountains.
