      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 .

Happy New Year all!! Wolfman, sorry to hear about your auger woes. I cant be of much help but I got curious. Eskimo has about zero presence on the web. Pretty strange, maybe says something about the company. I looked up Strikemaster and boom, there they are with parts and the whole nine yards. (we should be in the equipment forum with this) but one cool thing I was able to do with my Strikemaster was convert it from a chipper to a lazer by simply buying a new drill assembly. (about $120) It was a lot cheaper a few years back when I did it. What a difference.

ole matty,

Just throwing this out there for your question. I love my 8 inch Eskimo. Its been a great auger for me. I usually use my 10 inch Lazer lately, but I will never get rid of the Eskimo as long it keeps running. cool.gif

I can't say where to get parts since I've never needed any for it besides a new set of blades. Its probably 10-12 years old now.

I would go to my local small engine shop and see if they got a part for you. Most times it is just a standard techumseh part. A hardware stores may carry those parts also.

Wolfman I think any small-engine repair shop should be able to help.

I just orderd the entire top of the motor from a local small engine place, runs about 60 bucks, if you want you can just order the recoil parts and rewind the spring(BIG PAIN IN THE.....) just have the model number TC300 and what ever is after that, any place that sells lawnmoweres would be a great place to start,

And yes Eskimo is a great product, my dads old one is still running strong, (must be close to 20 years old) and mine besides the recoil is still going great 5 years old)The company is Ardisam and they are in Cumberland, WI. They have great customer service, I wanted to exchange the 8 inch for a 10 inch and they guy meet me in Luck to exchange.

BTW if you search for Eskimo Ice auger you can find alot of refferences on the web, but you need to look up the motor to find parts for that. here is a web site that matches alot of the newer tc300's but always check with the shop with the model number and type before ordering your part

I have a 25 year old (or so) Eskimo. 3-4 years ago I had the hood break where it held the gas tank on. One of the retailers recommended a landscape company in New Brighton, Rock something or something Rock. The part was obsolete so he picked one he thought would work and ordered it, and said if it didn't work bring it back. Had to redrill one hole, and drill the rivets out for the recoil on the old one and screwed it on. Back in business. He knows his way around small engines and augers.

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
