      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 have this auger and have been having problems. It idles great, and runs fine until you go to drill a hole. Last year. I have tried new gas, tried running a tank of gas, and just letting this thing run for while, have made sure its been plenty warmed up, and it still pudders when you are drilling at auger weight with no pressure.....

I dont want to start monkeying with the carb adustments until I have some direction from someone that knows a bit more about engines then me.

I am thinking its upper throttle adjustment, but am not sure.

Some advise will be appreciated. Going to Mille Lacs on the 26th and would like to hop holes, but this could make it very unlikely.

Thanks,

jk

How old is the auger? Does it have the mixture adjust screws on it? Is it a 2hp or a 3hp? I am in Kato also if you would like me to look at it. Otherwise, if you could answer the above questions for me I can probably talk you through it.

It has drilled about 20 holes, it is a three horse, and the mix should be very accurate. I did drain the gas, and run it dry this past summer, and as I indicated-the gas that I have in it now is new at least within the last three weeks, so that should not be an issue. Its not something that appears to not be carb/plug related in terms of it being gunked up or anything as it starts as great and idles fine. My conclusion is it must be of some sort of adjustment type of an issue.

My schedule is quite hectic. Your offer is more than generous and appreciated to offer to check it out. I just don't know that I am going to be able to swing a time before we leave. Worst case, I will deal with it when I get back, and at that point may take you up on it if we cant get it figured out over the FM, as another buddy has a 30 we can take....just older, and dont drill as well when this is firing...It seems that when I choke it at half, it does get a bit more gas and runs better with the additional stress of cutting a hole.

Let me know what you think. I dont mind tinkering with it, just dont want to do something that is going to result in a trip to the shop with it-if you know what I mean...I have seemded to misplaced the owners manuel, and the online one I found has limited info.

Thanks for your help! Let me know what you think, even some direction is appreciated.

As your looking at the auger from the side there is carb screws, the one closest to the engine is the low speed and the farthest away from the motor is the high speed screw. Take and screw the high speed screw out about a 1/4 of a turn and that will richen it up a tad... you may need to go alittle more if it still cuts out. These screws for the carb adjustment are Gas adjustment and NOT air so be sure to turn the screw counter clockwise (out) which will give it more fuel. If that does not help out your problems, then the diaphram in the carb is bad and will need to be replaced, when the diaphram goes bad your motor will run very inconsistent being almost impossible to tune. Let me know how it goes.

Look at the carb, the two red caps (if they are still on it) with the slots in them are the adjuster screws. One is labled H and the other L. The L is the one closest to the motor usually and the H is the one closer out towards the handle. Use a needle nose pliers and take the cap off the one labled H and turn the screw counter-clockwise (out) 1/4 of a turn. If that does not seem like enough turn it another 1/4. Only turn it 1/4 of a turn at a time. The H is your high speed adjust and right now your fuel air mixture at wide open throttle is too lean (not enough gas). It should run a bit rough at wide open throttle with no load on the motor and then clean up when you start drilling and run smooth and crisp. If you end up turning the screw more than one full turn and it does not seem to help, turn the screw all the way out, grab a can of carb cleaner and stick the straw in the hole. Spray some carb cleaner through the hole and re-install the screw. Turn the screw in all the way until it stops and then back it out a turn and a half. That should get you close. You may end up taking a screw driver with you up north and finish the tune when you are on the ice. Copy and paste this address and scroll to the bottom of page 4 if does not go right there and look at image 1.

If you look at the image here, you will see the screws I am talking about, and the engine would be on the left side of the carb as it is pictured.

Anytime. If you have any other issues, go ahead and call Reel Fishing and Tackle in Madison Lake. They can get you my number. I will be over there tomorrow to pick up a auger for service so I might even be there.

Did as advised, and took it out to Eagle Lake to drill some holes, and it works like a champ-thanks for the help to everyone.

This is the first time I think that I have used this resource for equipment....WOW, quite the resources out there willing to help.....

Merry Christmas, you just made mine!

I have almost the same issue with my 2hp Jiffy. Would the same info on adjusting the carb apply to the 2hp? I have adjusted the mixture screws but with the caps on I can only turn them a 1/2 turn. I didn't know if i would ruin something by pulling off the caps so I left them alone.

Yes the same idea should work. How old is your 2hp? Just make sure that when you adjust it start with the low speed and make sure that you idle is good. Then when you got the the high speed, the main difference is that th 2hp should be smooth and crisp at wide open throttle with no load. The best way to do the high speed is to hold it up off the ground, hold the throttle wide open, adjust the screw until it runs the highest possible rpm, and then open it another 1/8 turn (counter clockwise/out). That should do it.

I believe that my 2hp was purchased in 1999. I removed the red caps and found that I have only a low speed adjusting screw. Was that common to only have the low speed screw? Did some adjusting and it seems to run fine.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.

      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?
