      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 .

Garmin Street Pilot ????

Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy a on the road navigation aid. Just wondering if the street pilot or similar will tell you your exact lat/lon orientation. All I ever see are map positions without coordinates. If anybody knows please let me know. I need both abilities. Thanx

I dont care what model I buy just as long as I can access my position lat/lon. I need it for work I do pipeline construction and need it to find work sites easier but I also need to record exact gps positioning for reporting purposes. Sorry I should have addressed that.

I dont think you would like a Street Pilot for what you want to use it for. I think a hand held GPS would work better for you. cool.gif

Get the Garmin Nuvi 350, or the 360 if you want bluetooth.

It'll tell you your lan/lon, it will tell you how fast your moving at any given time, it will tell your accuracy.

It also has something like 2M points of interest, meaning your restaurants, gas stations, hotels, etc., all across the USA.

I use mine for running estimates and deliveries, and 95% of the time it puts me right in front of the house.

I WILL say that, if you're familiar with the Roseville area.....

For whatever reason, it says the Super Target on the SE corner of Snelling and Hwy 36, is actually about 1/2 mile to the NW, at the corner of Fairview Ave and County Road B2.

Also, it seems like there's entire towns left out of the points of interests. If I try to look up info north of Forest Lake, alot of those places aren't included.

Also, you'll run into stuff like the Best Buy in Maplewood and Roseville are not listed, however 6 others in the cities are.

I was told by the guy at Best Buy that all the companies use the same Points of Interest-company, so it's the same from GPS to GPS, except for Tom-Tom.

I agree. I use the second female choice, unless my wife is in the car, then I switch it to German. She's 100% German, moved to the states (Army brat) about 20ish years ago, so I have her translate, to see how well it'll get people around that don't speak English.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
