      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 .

Lowrance LMS 330C, LCX15, LCX17, LMS480

Does anyone use one of these units that can tell me if an 05 or 06 lakemaster chip is compatible. I cant figure it out from the lowrance manual. I have a h20 with the chip and am considering a 330c. I know it is an older unit but thats why the price is more appealing.

I have been comparing a lot of the other units like the LCX 17, LCX15, LMS 480. Some sights say they are compatible with the navionics chips but then I find on some fishing forums that the lakemasters (older than 07) also work. I get confused my the various terms for the cards (mmc and SD). Ive been searching the web for two days now and guess the easiest way to get clarification may be to ask here.

Basically I want a bigger screen graph, low cost, lakemaster compatible, dont care if its color really. I currently run a x67c up front and a x70 on the console. I made an impulse buy (due to a good deal) on a Eagle FishMark 500C but am reconsidering selling it for a bigger screen. I love the size of my X70!

I have an X15MT and a Globalmap3000 and both work with the Lakemaster 07' Promaps. You just have to make sure that the software is upgraded. Any authorized Lowrance dealer will do that for free.

The Eagle FishMark 500C can not use Mapping chips the FishElite 500C Does.

Same thing with 480's the FishMark 480 doesn't use Map chips the FishElite 480 does.

LCX-17M will also Use the Lakemaster Chip.

MMC and SD cards are the same.

Thanks everyone for the info so far. Now to get the unit.

Sorry for the misunderstanding PierBridge. I know the FIshMark 500C doesnt take chips. I bought one yesterday at cabelas. It was in the bargain cave without the package or ducer (which I bought so it is complete). I did have them hook it up to the display in the fishing section to make sure it worked. The tag on it was marked as a FishMark 480 non-color unit (which I pointed out to them) but they still sold it to me for that price. I bought it figuring since I already have the 06lakemaster and H20 that I dont need a unit with gps. I am just exploring options for a gps combo unit (since the screen on the h20 is soo small) in which case I will either sell the FishMark 500C or the X67C.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
