      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 .

Honda EU1000i

cold one sd

I just picked mine up today and I'm not familiar with this unit at all. Are there any secrets that I need to know as far as starting it in cold weather such as putting the choke in the half way position after a few pulls or do you just choke it and pull the rope until it starts? I would hate to be on the ice on a 20 below day and not be able to start it. Thanks. confused.gif

Congrats.....what a unit! I can't wait to find a good deal on the 1000 myself.

It's a Honda so it is going to start, if its really cold full choke would be my guess.

I had one and then up-graded (personal needs) to the 2000. In my case the 1000 always started on the first or second pull. I can't say that with the 2000 I now have. Anytime I was out with the temps around 0 or colder I always tried to keep mine in the wheel house to warm it up. When I use it at my hunting shack I always bring it in at night. I am not saying it won't start after being out in the cold all night but it sure starts a lot easier and it has to be better for it.

Great purchase, I use to sell these units at northern, They almost ALWAYS start, I say almost because if you dont put the right weight oil for the temp, or clean the gas out when not using it you could be in trouble. I ran into an issue where the Damned thing woudlnt stay running, turned out to be the low oil warning, it was maybe 1/4 inch low, put new oil in and walla it works great, Had it sitting out on RED in the wind and it started up just great, Might want to hit up a small engine place that sells these units or find the Battery cables online, They work great for charing the batteries.

I have a set of battery cables on order. I was on the Honda website the other day and if you buy from a dealer on line they will throw in the battery cables and a carrying bag. I'm gonna have to find some type of case to transport it in to keep the scratches off. I had one of those dheap chinnese generators that didn't like to start in the cold. I have been giving it a shot of ether to get it to start. I had enough of that.

      Went out this morning and walked around and drilled a few holes.   Found between 3-6" of ice.   The areas that did not open up had 6" of good ice.    the open water areas had almost 3".   All areas are open to walking.   Some could be 4 wheeler ready by the weekend but only of you know where the fist ice is! With that being said I would still avoid these areas: Winter access to west to far shoreline and anything north of that line. summer access Anything within 200 yards of the meth hole. any last open water.     Be careful,   Don

      Well, people live all over this state and I live 4 hours away. I'm also 54 years old and have been ice fishing for a half century. Was asking a simple question with a simple answer needed. Thanks. Please someone report if they can.

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
