      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 .

Bulb keeps going soft?

Recommended Posts

Guest

I have a 97 Force 75 that dies on me every so often,maybee three times a day.I noticed that the bulb is soft when this happens.All I have to do is pump up the bulb and the motor runs fine again.The motor runs just like brand new the rest of the time.Any one have any idea what could be causeing this.It is not the vent on the tank,I checked it,and there is no kink in the fuel line nor can I find a hole in the line.

You might have to replace the bulb, sometimes they will not seal correctly internally and let pressure go back.
Also it could be the connector to motor, I have a Mariner 30hp and if I don't leave the connector in a particular position, it will do same as yours.
I am just too lazy to replace it rolleyes.gif so I strapped it in position. No more problems...D)

Hey fishhead, I had the same problem. Cured it by changing the connector from the fuel line to the motor. Seems it was old and just didn't seal right anymore.

Thanx guys I'll try that.It doesn't really bother me to pump up the bulb once and a while but it would be wise to have things working properly and not let things get out of hand where you get stuck out on the water.

Ha, Ha, Ha D-MAN,

Be careful with that Viagra in the fuel though. You'll never get the motor to idle down again.

Maybe I should add some to my leeches.

Borch,
DO NOT add Viagra to your leeches. They won't have the curvy wiggle anymore and you'll end up fishing with a black stick for bait........ wink.gif

You might be right. I think I'll scrounge up some prozac instead. Happy active leaches would be good right? wink.gif

Man, this fishing stuff is getting too carried away. Now everytime I get in the boat I got Electronics which include Fishfinder unit, GPS unit, Cell phone, maybe a 2 way radio....I walk like a cop with all that stuff hanging from pants. Plus I have at least 2 or 3 tackle boxes, rods, lifejackets, batteries, nets, maps, bait, etc.....I don't need a 18' boat, I need an aircraft carrier.

Now you guys tell me I have to bring the med kit to help my bait ?

By the way is there any medicine that helps revive minnows ??? I tried mouth to mouth but it doesn't work (they try to stick tongue in also... grin.gif )....If I have to carry all these drugs as might as well find something for the poor minnows..... grin.gif

Have a good day.

Val

    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
