      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 .

Big Buddy Problem?

Recommended Posts

I bought a Big Buddy heater last year and ever since I have owned it the heater just shuts itself off for no apparent reason. I have tried both a bulk tank and 1 pound cylinders. Any ideas or do I have a bad unit? Thanks for the help.

Welcome to the wonderful word of Big Buddy heaters. It happens to about half of them out there.

Low oxygen? Low pressure?

Just doesn't operate like one of those cast iron stove, keeps running until the LP is out...even some gas grills have low pressure probs.

Yeah, Low oxygen is probably your best bet. Check to see what you have for ventilation in the area you are heating and go from there. Also, I've read in other posts that guys using Coleman tanks are having less than problems than off brand 1 pounders. Not sure what size you are running though.

Sounds like you may have a couple of problems! Make sure you are using the coleman 1 lbs cylinders when using bottled gas. Also if you are using bigger cylinders with hose, make sure you install a FILTER as re-fillable tanks can have alot of contaminents in them. The filters should be replaced yearly!

Good Luck and hope this helps. Highcountry

I'm in the same boat as EBASS. Three years and zero probs. I have never even screwed a 1 lb tank on it. My only knock on it is the cheesy plastic, that is all busted on it from bouncing around in the fishhouse.

I sent mine back with the recall and that one never gave me any problems and the brand new replacement shuts off for no reason. Someone posted about a mod because of it not being level but I could not find anything inside that looked like a switch. I just wait 5 min. and light again but it is a pain during prime time.

I had the same problem emailed them and gave them the serial number and they told me to call tech support and then would send a new one.

I also had a lot of these problems,shutting off,would only run on high.If you are using a bulk tank get the regulated quick connect hose.No problems since I switched to this.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
