      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 .

one else had this problem with the XL???

If you have not done it yet, pour out the old gas and replace it with a fresh batch.
And then clean the carb again, I have been in the motor business a long time, and see more problems with gas every year. If it stays in there for more than about 30 days, odds are you will have a problem.

If this does not help I'll trade you my Mora hand auger even-up, it runs perfect!

GOOD LUCK

Yep, Already did that before taking the carb off!!

Got a hold of someone up there at Big Lake,at the service dept. Told him the kind I had,and even before the problem was explained to him,he was telling me about pumping the primer button would keep her running.Turns out, they had to comply with the FEDS in
the emissions department.They ended up sending the units out,emissions okay,but
not exactly running at peak performance.
Mine will now be "adjusted" to fit MY
own standards of performance.

Not a big surprise I guess, had to do the same for my suburban for the vehicle emission
Bullhooey too. I'll let you know how it goes!!

Tumbleweed, how do you plan on adjusting it? I'm curious as mine is kind of doggy and was thinking of tweaking it a bit. Can you adjust the carb by turning the red knobs under the carb? Thanks.

I know you guys don't want to hear it, but I've found that those strikemaster three horses are nothin but trouble. I'm good buds with guys at strikemaster in big lake. If you were to take them in and ask to have them tweaked up a little theyd tell you theres not much they can do. New EPA regulations make it impossible for strikemaster to use all that 3 horse power. Older models were able to be adjusted but the newer ones have the new EPA standards. The only thing you are doing when you mess with those red carb screws is adjusting the air and fuel intake. You can only tweak your machine so much before its runnin to lean. If you live close to big lake, you should head down to strikemaster and have them adjust it. They won't charge you, and they're really down to earth good guys. They'll take care of you. They may even hook you up with a trade in on a new two horse. Moral of the story is....you're better off without it. I know, they used to be great machines, but the new standards screwed that up. Those strikemaster augers will run, but not like how people want them to. Go try out one the 2 horses. You'll love it. Sorry for the bad info, but somebodys got to say something

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
