      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 .

Jiffy Stealths

Recommended Posts

I am curious how this auger works. I am thinking about buying a new Jiffy before next season. Since, my jiffy that I currently run which is 20 years old needs a little work I am starting to get some pretty good blow by. So am wondering what everyone who has one of this type auger liked them. I am trying to decide whether to get on or if it is worth if for me to fix it. Actually I will probably do both. Also I am not interested in a Strikemaster so I don't want to hear any comments on them since I am a Jiffy guy through and through you wouldn't be able to convince me to get one anyhow. Thanks.

I have had a Jiffy Legend 2 HP for 2 seasons now. It is perfect. I don't have the Stealth blade, but I do have the Teflon coated DeIcer blade they offered at the time I bought mine. The new blades have a larger center cutter instead of just a centering point. I have never been diappointed in the way mine cuts.

Thanks for the info on the Legends. I know all about Legends, Models 30, etc. I just want to hear from someone that has used a Stealth. I don't care if it is a 2 or 3 hp I am just more interested in what they thing of the drill itself. I would only buy a 3 hp anyways. Thanks

My girlfriend(now Fiance, for obvious reasons) bought me a 9" 3hp Jiffy Legend Stealth for Christmas. I love it. I went on 4 trips way up north this winter and it was the only auger we brought on the last 3 after lugging another one around on the first on. It is very reliable and you almost have to lift the auger up while it cuts because it pulls through the ice so fast. It is not as fast as a Strikemaster lazer, but 3 or 4 seconds is not really going to make that much difference for me. It is the easiest auger I have ever drilled a hole with. It makes me laugh when I see other guys laying and jumping on their augers to get them to cut. Highly recommended. Easily the best auger I, or any of my fishing buddies have ever used.

My wife bought me the Legend 3 horse with 8" blade. It is the first auger I've ever owned but I have done a little research after getting it. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I got to use it for several trips this year and it cuts thru the ice like a hot knife thru butter. The strikemaster folks will complain about the wobble etc. etc. I called Jiffy because mine does this too, but it's supposed to! Also, the gear box is quality made and does not need to be greased. Very easy upkeep. I would highly recommend one, nothing but a sturdy, quality built machine.

    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon.
