      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Tom,

I don't think there's pressure there, it's before pump.

You should be able to just twist it open. You will loose some gas, so get rags to catch the spill. Also be sure to get o-ring out and reposition it correctly when installing.

Usually they are stainless steel, regular carb cleaner should work fine. If it's plastic I would just blow some air to clean deposits and reinstall

I havent done anything with mine yet so I dont know this for sure, but I think you just replace it, I think the filter assy is sealed. Although I never tried to turn it off.

I thought that too and when I went to the marina to buy a new one the guy in service said just twist it off and clean it. I haven't tried it yet but today looks like a good day to do it.

a'ight - I was able to take a look tonight and it was very easy. First, disconnect the filter assembly from the bracket it is attached to - careful not to drop the nut. I did this so I could get a grip on the filter cup. Then I used a little muscle to unscrew the cup. If you are steady when unscrewing the cup you won't spill a drop of gas. I dumped the gas and found a couple small particles of junk in the bottom of the cup and blew it out. Then I went back and looked at the actual filter - it just pulls out(the filter looks to be paper). I checked it out and it looked clean but I blew it off anyway - be careful here - I had my compressor turned up full and gas went all over when I hit the filter with air. I turned down my compressor and hit the filter a few more times. Then I put it all back together and pumped the bulb a few times to fill the filter cup. Hope this helps.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
