      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 .

Tetonka on the Lakemaster Chip

Recommended Posts

Can'tFishEnuf

The 07 chip looks like it has 2 maps layered on top of each other. One is a 3 foot contour and the other a 5 foot, I think. Does anyone know which one is correct? It's really goofy looking and hard to read. I don't know much about this lake and I'm thinking about giving it a try this spring. I guess I'll find out soon enough out on the water. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this.

Were you zoomed in. If not it will be cluttered.

Yea, I had it zoomed in. It's very wierd looking. You can see a number of 3 foot lines and then a 5 foot line will come shooting across. Some of the 5 foot lines don't make sense with the 3 foot. For example, it has 12, 15, 18 feet then a couple 30 and 35 lines overlay it. This is the only lake that I have noticed this on, so I think it may just be Tetonka. confused.gif

Maybe you have defective chip? Try to find someone you can compare apples to apples with. Also what unit is it in? Does it need a firmware update? Just thoughts to try.

I have the H2O. I saw a post about there being an update, but I don't have a card reader to copy the files to. I see I can call Lowrance and they will send one. The map and unit look like they are operating fine. It just looks like two maps being overlayed. I am going to contact Lakemaster and see if this is a defect or what. Thanks guys!

I know that my chip works just fine on TeTonka. As Otter stated it is a 5' map. The direction I would go is to Lakemaster as you will get to the bottom of it there. I would guess the chip is the problem if its only on 1 lake map.

I would follow Harvey lees lead. Lowrance should be able to solve your problems.

I have the same problem with the 07 chip. My old chip was fine with the 5 ft contours. Looks like they copied a their new 3ft contour map over the old DNR style map. Makes it kinda difficult to read... The old 5 ft contour map had poor-average accuracy. Im not sure how accurate the 3 ft map is.

I sent Lakemaster an email just this morning and I already got a response. Pretty good for a Saturday.

"This has been brought to our attention. Lowrance

is the product manufacturer. We provide them with the

lake information. The 5-foot contour map should have

been removed, but was not. You should use the 3-foot

contours."

I would make sure they know there is still something not right. You shouldn't have to deal with that.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!

      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am

      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
    • cookie129
      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early

      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.
