Oxygenator?

9 posts in this topic

I don't see the oxygenator on the FM site anymore, I want to buy one. Is it not sold here anymore or am I losing it?

Is there any problems with the Oxygenator? I haven't used one yet but thought it was a good product.

G-man, your back !!!! I had not seen any recent posts. I thought the hard water might bring you back. I beleive there is a group going to Milleacs on Saturday as there is 5" of ice in the southern bays. I may go but not a big fan of early, possibly dangerous ice. Anyway good to see you are back on the board. Hope to see you on the ice in the next few weeks. I picked up a new portable pull over shelter to kick off the season with something different.

Thanks!

I had to take some time off for the last half-season of the open water season. Its a boy! 'Brayden Ryan'. He's 10 weeks now and I am ready to get back out there and the beginning of the hard water season is the perfect opportunity.

I'm not up for Mille Lac's tomorrow but if I get a certain something around the house done for the misses tomorrow, I might be able to make it out on Sunday for awhile. I'm open to ideas ...

G-man, I hope you are enjoying being a Dad. I have a little 4 year old running around and love every minute of it. The local ice report is not good. Garvais is wide open with a little ice on shore, I see that someone is fishing como lake, and I have heard from Mykal that there ice on the back waters of the Coon Rapids dam. I also see in the forecast that there may be some 40's next week which is not good for the ice...It won't be long. I have my new Eskimo quick flip II set up downstairs. The next step is to move it to the back yard and make sure the heater and lantern are working correctly. My 1 year old stike master auger has decided not to start so I am a bit concerned as to what happened. I believe I added stabalizer before I put it away. I am going to change the spark plug tomorrow and hope I can get her to fire up.

Still looking for a response as to if there are any known problems or some technology these units are lacking ...

Does something (easy) else work better?

G Man, I was curious so I checked it out further. The units seem to be having no problems, just not offerred here anymore. A major catolog company is carrying them. I'm going to try to address the issue of being a value on items that are not advertisers on FM. We all need to realize the economic situation regarding sponsors vs non sponsors, but there has to be a compromise when information is sought.

[Note from Rick: We are happy to have information shared with respect to non-sponsors as long as it's non-promotional in nature. Check out all the vex threads. They are not a sponsor. With respect to the oxygenator:
I didn't want to post this, but leechlake's comments force the issue:

We no longer carry them for good reasons. There were a high number of returns from freshwater users. It actually appeared to kill the minnows. Several of our Pro Staff also encountered the problem.

Their return policy was also punitive.

We will not, in good faith, sell these until their units work as advertised and their return policy is fixed.

Purchase at your own risk.

When you see us disconitnue an item because of manufacturer issues, you can bet there is a manufacturer issue that isn't good.]

I saw some where Rick had said the FM would no longer carry them. Not sure why I have never used one so I don't know what they are like and how good they are.

    • little early fer that fish aint it!!!!!! I wanna see pictures of you camping come tomorrow morning when da blizzard comes thru!!!!!!!!!!!! nice pictures though!!!!!!!!!!!
    • whitefish maybe? 
    • If I understand correctly this only for bows. I have a crossbow and from what I understand it is considered a firearm. Is that the case? My son has a bow and has the archery tag.
    • so ... dillon has a bird to enter and 1957 is still hunting? looks like we are in good shape, but lot of guys still hunting in MN and WI, i assume   ended my season friday. got the blind set up before the shower started. it quit right before sunrise time and there was lots of gobbling on the roost a couple hundred yards away but none where i heard them close by when scouting a couple days earlier. a few distant gobbles on the ground, then nothing after the rain and wind picked up again. finally saw a hen step out of the woods about 830 and start heading toward me. soft yelps kept her coming, then out steps a big tom and several more hens heading my way but when they got to an opening in the fence from the stalk field into another timber, the tom paused, i had the bead on him, decided it was too far, and then they were gone the rain quit a half hour later and i ramped up the calling with some louder yelps and cutts. a few minutes later a head comes over a rise in the field and its a solo tom. he ignored the dekes and headed toward the fence gap where the others went, stopped and fanned without gobbling, but some soft yelps, clucks and purrs kept him coming my way. dropped him at 40 yards after stepping it off to where he lay, i kept going to where the other tom left the field and it was 55 big steps, so glad i didnt shoot went 23, 10, 1 but the rain cut loose again on the way back to the truck so i didnt take pictures  
    • If you were anywhere close to southern Minny I would invite you over and let you drive mine and show you the things I look for both in the jeep and plow since mine seems pretty close to what you are looking for. If you have any questions PM me.
    • Good luck PFUNK! Looking like that will be my next day out too. forecast looks good as well!
    • I think the TJ might be the best choice with the 4.0 which is what I did.I bought the plow used after the fact. I got the plow for 1200 but the wiring was not good nor was the mount so I had a new custom, heavier duty mount made at a fab shop and I bought a brand new wiring kit from Western. I also bought all stainless bolts for it so there are no rust issues with them. Wiring the plow was a task. I basically had to remove the entire interior including console, seats and many dash parts to run the wiring.   One thing to consider- There is really very little room for much of anything in them. Running new wires, adding a speaker anywhere or even having 2 guys, 2 guns, a dog and a cooler is a tight fit. The back seat works for kids but not adults and mostly I take my back seat out so I have at least some room to put stuff. Running the wiring to run the plow took probably 8 hours or more spread over a few days and for a bigger guy it's pretty much impossible to reach under the dash and run wires,connect to fuse blocks even with the seat removed.    But the ability to take off the top and cruise the gravel roads with no doors while hunting is not possible in basically any other vehicle except maybe a Manx Dune buggy which has also been on my bucket list and those aren't 4x4. 
    • Anyfish is correct,I will add you can buy a archery tag and hunt the entire rest of the season in any turkey zone.
