      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 .

Pulled the cord out of my buddies auger..... Now What?

Recommended Posts

HossFisher

Today me and a buddy took out his new Strikemaster mag2000 and it wasnt running too well. When i was trying to get it going i pulled the rope right out of the auger. My question is what can we do now? Is there an easy way for us to fix this problem or do we need to take it to a special repair shop?

I have done that a couple of different augers. You will need to take the recoil off and retie it. if you dont think you can do it, most small engine shops can fix it in a few minutes.

If you take the recoil off, then wind the spring and tie the rope back in with a knot on the end a wind it up. Then put it back on the auger. Its not to hard of a job.

how new is it? a few days, week or two? if so try and take it back to where he bought it, maybe they'll let him do an exchange. maybe they will see it as defective. if that don't work then try a repair shop.

Thanks for the quick replies. Hopefully we'll be able to retie it ourselves. It was the first time using it and hes had it for maybe a week. The only problem is he got it from his cousin who won it in a fishing contest so i dont know if he can somehow return it or not. Thanks again for the info and ill let ya know how this plays out.

What ever brand it is you should be able to go to a place that sells & services them or any small engine shop. You should be able to fix it yourself tho. It’s pretty simple to do.

Ya i guess the recoil broke too so i think that he is going to go buy a new recoil then hopefully we will just have to retie it.

If the recoil broke you need to get a new one and get it put in by someone if you dont know how. If your by big lake take it directly to strikemaster. Its a common problem.

Not picking on you Bassboy, but one thing I've noticed a lot is that people really reef on these pull ropes. Pull as hard and as far out as they can. Like they are starting a snowmobile or something.

I never pull the rope close to being all the way out. Short quick strokes and you should never have to worry about this happening.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      I need to slow down and focus on shooting

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan
