      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 .

bait well problem

Anyone know how to fix a bait well. My pump is fine but it does not pump water into the well. I think that my line must be plugged. Has anyone had this happen to them before and how did you fix it??

Is this a new boat? If so it is very possible that the spray nozzle is shut all the way, thus not allowing water flow. Reach in to the baitwell and find the nozzle. Simply unscrew the nozzle a couple of turns and water should flow. If this a used boat you may have a bad impeller on your aerator pump. Greg

Is it a Ranger boat? If so you may have to purge the line. You should have a black plastic cap on the floor with the valves under it. Try that and see if thats the problem. Thats if you have a Ranger but from looking at your avator Im just assuming.

I've read that you can take a garden hose and spray it from the back to see if it's plugged or not. Take the screen off where the livewell normally drains from and shoot some water through the pump and up into the livewell. This might unblock anything you've got in the lines.

Yes it is a ranger. My impeller and pump is fine. This may sound stupid but how do I purge the line? Thanks

Sometimes the lines get air locked - make sure the valve for your baitwell is on fill (or whatever setting is required to fill it) and put the motor in reverse, forcing some water into the tube - that'll usually do it if everything else is working correctly.
