      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 .

hardware for a strikemaster extension

Recommended Posts

I feel goofy asking but I have an 18" extension that I bought with my 10" lazer XL3000 about 5 years ago. I've never put it on the auger but now that it looks like I'll need it to go to Red this weekend, I'm not sure what size/type bolt/nut I'll need to mount it? does it need to be an allen head like the one that holds the head to the auger?-appreciate any help!

Hey bud they need a metric bolt. Its an M8 about 1.5" to 1.75" but the lenght will be metric. I can make sweet extensions out of solid stainless steel made to custom lenghts. let me know if yer interested. BTW you can get the bolts at most Hardware Hank's/Ace. Get the stainles ones.

Thanks for the info-It didn't come w/ an extra or I lost it over the years but I just emailed Strikemaster w/ this question as well and am waiting for a reply.
AaronGramenz sounds like your gonna be busy making extensions if winter keeps up like this, and I know there are several people looking for extensions because most stores are sold out!!! Good luck and tight lines!

The extension's top, the female end that accepts the male end of the powerhead, requires a metric bolt to fasten correctly. You can go a size smaller and simply stick it through and put a nut on the bolt, but that will ruin the original threads as you use the auger.

The threads are there for a reason, so you can bind the power shaft to the extension more solidly.

I had the factory allen-wrench bolt from Strikemaster with the extension but lost it. When it came time to use the extension on my XL3000, I took it to the hardware store and ran through a bunch of bolts to find the right one. Only one that would thread on was metric. I don't remember the size, but you can easily bring your extension to the store and experiment like I did.

I bought two bolts, one for a spare. Once I had the bolt threaded through, I also put on TWO nuts, the first screwed on until it locked tight against the extension, the second tightened down against the first to further lock it on.

Even if you get the factory replacement bolt from Strikemaster, it's a good idea to get a second one or the right size hardware store bolt as backup.

    • They don't save cap space that is the whole point. The money is still spent. What it allows them to do is go OVER the cap during such time a player is on LTIR. It doesn't give them relief at all, it just allows them to go over the cap. We already have Coyle on LTIR so it wouldn't do any good to add Parise to that. That would mean two moves would have to happen when they are both healthy. The Wild could do that too, but what sense would that make because they would be forced to be compliant once Parise is healthy. Hossa is likely going to be LTIR all year. At this point I doubt Parise will be out that long. Russo did a very good writeup on it last night for TheAthletic. You can also read up on it on CapFriendly.
    • I'm on board with the others, sounds legal to me!  Best of luck hunting! Kettle
    • Was in Joes sporting goods last night and they had the 8" K drill for $219
    • Sounds good to me.
    • It should be as long as the wma butts up to the lake,
    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
