      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 3HP STEALTH

Recommended Posts

CONFUSED....GOT NEW JIFFY STEALTH 3HP 8" LAST YEAR AND USED IT ABOUT 4 DAYS....PROBLEM IS NO TORQUE, IT SOUNDS GOOD AND BLADE SPINS SMOOTHLY, BUT AS SOON AS I START CUTTING THRU ICE IT SEEMS TO BOG DOWN, AND STICK. SEEMS TO HAVE NO POWER TO CUT THRU ICE. BLADES ARE GOOD AND SHARP. I ALSO HAVE AN ESKIMO 2 HP 10" AND I CAN CUT HOLES IN HALF THE TIME OF THAT 3HP. ANY IDEAS OR SUGGESTIONS

Either..it..is..cold..or..the..neidle..and..seat..is..sticky..or..partially..plugged..up.

If..warming..it..up..first..does..not..help..then..try..tweeking..the..idle..mix..screw..open..a..1/8..turn.

Do..this..adjustment..when..it..is..warm..also.

Be..sure..the..choke..if..fully..off..too.

What you discribe is a classic carb problem. Did you leave fuel in it at the end of last season. If so you have gum in the carb other wise try what eddy mentioned. Another sometimes easy fix is to run some sea foam through it. That isn't a bad thing to just do periodically anyhow.

I.agree..it's.classic.carb.problems.
Dump.all.the.old.suspect.fuel.out.

Mix.new.oil/fuel.with.a.good.dose.of.Sea-Foam.includes..about.1oz.per.tank.

You.can.lean,the.oil.a.bit.with.a.Sea-Foam.mix.too..smokes.less.

A..soak.&.flush.first.with.straight.Sea.Foam.would.be.wise.

If.it.is.warmed.up.&.Choke.off..and.if.it.STILL.does.not.go.WAAAAAAAAAAA..while.under.load.
something.is.plugged.up.or.set.too.lean.

The.Jiffy.Stealth.system.bites.ice.hard..if.your.too.lean.it.will.dog.down.fast.

Another.thing.is.it.should.almost.go.down.under.it's.own.weight.(Especially.new.charp.blades).try.not.to.force.it...just.guide.it.down.

FYI, I just purchased a 3hp 10" stealth a week or so ago, I was very impressed when I put gas in and in 2 pulls its running and with a bit of warming it had no problems, after hearing about the emission settings stc,.. they musta fixed that prob..?

I bought one last year too with the same problems. It's like it doesn't get enough gas. My brother-in-law also has one the same way. I drill with mine on half choke and it works fine. I think I neeed to adjust the carb to put more fuel into the mix but haven't done it yet.

    • Crops are out, sloughs are frozen.  Did very well on private ground in the Ortonville area this past weekend.
    • I bought the helix 5 SI mainly for a new summer unit since i didn't have GPS in the boat and with the intention of using the GPS for the ice at a minimum.  I figured it would be so/so on the ice but it actually worked really well in graph mode.  I am still fumbling around with some of the settings.  Naturally now that the new units have arrived i wish i would have waited for the newest offerings as they look to be a bit more geared toward the ice.
    • Your review is pretty much the same as my experience with my first gen Helix 5.  As a dual purpose unit it does fairly well on the ice but its a step below the dedicated ice units out there.  I bought mine because I do a lot of fishing from canoes so wanted a portable unit and it excels at that.  The fact that it works decently on the ice was a bonus.  I do ice fish but not as often as I used to and not enough to justify the cost of a dedicated ice unit.
    • That may be.  Like I said, I’m not into football THAT much so I’m basing my opinion on my gut and seeing the Vikings perform reliably for a change. I’ve actually had personal interactions with Green when he was coaching here.  He was OK but I wasn’t in awe of him.  I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m neutral there.
    • great pictures fellas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.
    • I finally got out to try my first gen helix 5 this weekend.  Fished in 8 feet of water next to a lx5 and Lx7 in an otter lodge.  The flasher screen was not the best.  It was slow to react to my jig movement and i tried a few things to speed it up to no avail.  I switched it over to the graph and it was much better.  I am somewhat used to the graph as i use both on the LX7.  I didn't have any trouble with interference but i was only using the 200hz on the Helix.  It was definitely not in the same class as the Marcum considering the Marcum is a dedicated ice unit but as a dual use unit for the summer and winter it has lived up to my expectations.  I believe the new units will be much better in this regard.  Battery life was pretty good as i fished for about 15 hours on Saturday and i would say i had about 60% battery left.  Overall i am happy with the performance on the first outing.  I will chime back in when i get into some deeper water to compare the interference.    
    • what the heck did i just watch???  lol
