      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 .

Propane Fish Fryer

Recommended Posts

I have a twice used propane fish fryer that I bought from Bass Pro. Nothing expensive. I have it hooked to a 20lb propane tank. Both times I have used it I have experienced the same problem. When initially lit it burns great, plenty of gas flow, great flame. When I turn it off, and relight it a little later I don't get good gas flow, and a much smaller flame. I can never get the fryer back up to temperature.

Is there something I'm doing wrong. When I turn it off, I turn off the gas valve on the fryer line and then the valve at the bottle. I leave the gas line hooked up to 20lb bottle.

Thanks guys!

I'm having the same problem, only with a 20 lb tank attached to my grill! I have 2 tanks that I rotate and Tank 1 works fine, but Tank 2 is not very reliable. Starts real slow sometimes and has less gas output than the Tank 1, and seems to increase and decrease in output with no warning. I would appreciate it immensely if anyone has any thoughts on this too. The flame has never gone out, but when staring it is a real pain and I have to cook at a higher setting to get the same heat. Thanks in Advance.

Turn the gas valve off at the tank first then the turn off the valve on the fryer.

That way your regulator and hose have no pressure. An unregulated hose stored with propane will leech oils from the hose. That can plug things up. Try that next time and see if it helps.

McGurk, in your case it sounds like the OPD Tank Valve could be the culprit. If its from a tank exchange, better luck on your next exchange.

Thanks for the reply ST; I own the tank and have been getting it refilled. I guess an exchange might be the next best bet, but I'll have to get out everything I can from it first. Slow cooking a beercan chicken perhaps.

Listen carefully next time you open the valve on the tank. If you hear a click it is the EFD (excess flow device) tripping. This will greatly reduce the flow of propane coming out of the tank. To reset the EFD simply turn the valve off and listen again for a click. Then turn the valve back on slowly.

I agree with Surface about the non regulated hoses. Turn the valve off on the tank first and let the flame burn out then turn off the appliance.

Yeah, with the excess flow devices, the sequence and speed of opening the valves can affect how well or poorly the devices operate.

Sometimes just opening the valves quickly can activate the EFD.

I had the same problen on my grill, Weber techs told me I need to have all valves on the grill closed, open the valve on the tank slowly, then turn on the grill valves and it now it works great. HTB

      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

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!
