      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 .

Drill powered augers

I have the clam drill plate with the 6 inch auger paired with a dewalt dcd985 brushed motor. The deal I got on the drill was great in my opinion or otherwise I would have got the brushless model. I run the extension, because I am 6'4". Here is a photo of my set up without the extension.IMG_0071.JPG

I have fished with Rick G and his Milwaukee fuel and kdrill. Eyeguy and Rigid nils and Yes Rick can cut like crazy. For speed it's less than second a second difference for speed. The kdrill is lightest then the nils followed by my set up the clam drill plate is the difference. Through about 24 inches of ice I got 20 holes per 3 amp battery. I like the drill plate because of my disability it is something more to hang on plus it keeps the drill off the ice. For the people thinking of changing over it's the best thing ever. No more gas spilled on your hands no more gas leaking all over. Any of the options are a great choice.

I have the Dewalt 20v DCD996B with 6" Nils and it is fast. Still have not tried it on my 8" but I feel it will work just fine. I have started using the 18v to 20v adapter on most of my old tools so I now have more than enough 20v batteries.

I have the 6 inch K drill with the Milwaukee 18 volt brushless best thing since sliced bread. I have a bad pinched sciatica with the power auger constantly jerked and hurt now hardly any pain and cuts fast. WOW light that's the best thing and no gas, exhaust dripping on your car, clothes and fish house.

Really like that Dewalt came out with the 20V 6AH battery. Have not  picked one up but nice to know when and if the time comes. Way cheaper then the 20V/60V battery. It seems like the price for the 5AH have come down some as well...at least on flea-bay

I am looking at the 9 amp batteries as well but I can get 2 20/60 volt 6 amp batteries for less. I figure if I get 2 6amp batteries plus my 3 3 amp batteries I would be good to go. Or I will go with rick and eyeguy and watch rick rip it up lol.

You should get the DCB206 instead of the DCB606. The are going for right around $65 instead of close to $120 for the DCB606 20/60volt.

 

Leech,

Dewalt makes that battery ( 20V/60/) for high draw things like weed wackers and more heavy duty construction equip. I am sure it is just a matter of what pins you connect to determine your voltage. I really like using the 20v batteries on my old 18v drills and impacter with the adapter.

The DB 206 is a 20 volt max at 6 AH (amp hour) battery. The battery pack contains 10 lithium ion 3.9v batteries. (2 sets of 5 in series/parallel.) It takes 16 ion batteries wired in series to get close to 60 volts and have less than 1 AH. 

DO NOT try to change wireing. Il you short any ion battery they will burn white hot within 1 min. with NO way to put the fire out.

DeWault 20/60 volt has 15 18650 batteries @ 4 volt 3AH each. Parallel gives 20v 9ah. Series its 60v 3ah. Uses septrate contacts for each.

      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!

      Got two drake woodies took some advice from some great shooters and I only shot like 5 shells. Finn retrieved my ducks but got muddy so he got a bath.

      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
