      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 .

Hows Your Auger Running

Recommended Posts

Surface Tension

This time of year with thick ice and drilling through slush your auger is really getting a workout. If your auger is handling these conditions with no problems you can be assured that you have a clean and well adjusted carb and your good to go.
If your bogging and your clutch is slipping with the added load now is the perfect time to tweak the carb adjustment on the ice. Augers have a centrifugal clutch. If your auger bogs there won't be enough RPMs to lockup the clutch and it'll slip.
Note the position of your adjustment screw and make a small 1/8 turn adjustment then test drill. Start by turning out if no improvement after a couple adjustments and test holes then work your way back in.
Most factory settings are 1 1/4 turn out.

I should probably do that to my strikemaster ultra. The thing will bog down some and then the clutch slips. Not the nicest sound to hear.

But my Eskimo Shark works just fine. No tune-up needed there.

When the auger blades on my Strikemaster XL-3000 bind a bit, I just keep the throttle wide open and it kicks in harder and drives right through.
