      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 .

I don't have mapcreate 7 I have 6 something I am pretty sure that in the instructions they said that I can only use the LEI card reader. But it came with my GPS and mapcreate program. I would call LEI customer service they have been good to me in the past. Phil

you'll need the LEI card reader.

I thought it came with MapCreate?

Bought it from scheels and they said lei wouldnt allow it to be sold with the reader until may 4 but that I could go get a card reader/writer at best buy and that would work.

Well they are 100 percent wrong as you have learned.

You must initially use an LEI branded memory card reader/writer for MapCreate 7 to work properly.

Well, with version 6.3 (not sure about 7) there is a way to make maps without the LEI reader. I have made them using the MMC reader built into my computer.

First, you need borrow an LEI reader. Initialize your first card, this unlocks the software and you can unplug the LEI card reader an use your own. Put a "different" card (one that you haven't initialized with the software) into your other non-LEI card reader, run the create map command on the software, leave the Save As window open. Open windows explorer, then browse to the C:\Program Files\LEI\MapCreateUSAHuntTopo6.3\Res folder and get the Untitled.at5 file. Copy that file over to the card that's in your non-LEI reader (rename it if you want). It will work in version 6.3, haven't tried it in 7.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
