      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 .

outboard dosen't start with pull cord

Recommended Posts

I have a 40hp tohatsu outboard. It has a pull cord and an elec start. Recently I somehow bent the key in the electric start and im waiting on a new one. In the mean time I tried to start it witout the key but with the pullcord. Is this one of those deals where I need the key in the slot to fire the motor over with a cord?? I htought I flooded it the first time yesterday but today I know I didnt flood it and It still wont go. If not the key issue Im guessing spark plugs and starting fluid?? Its pretty new and it purred like a kitten when I put her away last fall. thanks for the ideas..

I'd put some starter fluid in it. If you pull and it fires up for a second than you know it is at least getting spark.

The key would have to be in the on position. Just like a car, if you have a stick you cannot push start the car without the key.

Yep, no key, no start. You have to unplug the main harness at motor, then it will start but you won't be able to shut it off.

Yeah I get it now...the manual said nothing about a key being needed for the pull cord to work I just assumed it was to use in case the key was not working right or the battery died.

If your motor pulls like a 110 pound black lab trying to chase a cat, you probably need the key. I think its kinda like a lawn mower that if you don't depress the throttle, it becomes icredibaly difficult to pull.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.

      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
