      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 .

Strikemaster Mag 2000 Auger problems

Recommended Posts

I have a 10" Mag 2000 and it cuts very well until the last inch or so of ice and I have a heck of a time breaking through. Is this a common problem? Is there anything that can be done? I put new blades on it and same thing happens.

I have the 8" Mag 2000 and I haven't had any issues with the last inch or so. The only issue I've noticed is that if you have ice built up on the bottom by the blade so that it keeps it from grabbing the ice at the right angle it is really tough to cut through. Once I figured that out I just make sure to have it clear as soon as I'm done drilling so it's ready for the next set. No issues since. grin.gif

Check and make sure the handle is pulling the throttle all the way open...That big ten inch needs all the motor there is to cut that last bit. Mine used to do the same thing until I figured out I wasnt getting that last 50 RPM or so...Also make sure you have sharp and straight bldes and that the chisel point isnt bent.

I had the same problem with the express 8" on the first hole i drilled with it, i got it so stuck so bad i thought i was going to have to disconnect the powerhead and tie a bouy onto the flighting so i could retrieve it this summer, i got it out after some improvising and learned to make sure i had it pinned for the last couple inches and haven't had a problem since, although a couple days later my brother in law was drilling holes with it and did the same thing and it took him some doing to get it out but he did and it still cuts good, i'm hoping that once the blades start to dull this doesn't become more common.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
