      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Keeping Jiffy running?


I have a four year old Jiffy Legend 3 HP. It usally starts OK after a couple of pulls but I need to keep it on full choke to drill the first hole and then if I switch to half choke it might die. If the motor doesnt die and start to drill the second hold, it sounds good until it revs up and then just dies. I suspect that it is not getting enough gas and I have been slowly tweaking the set screw. I have been turning the one on the left that is a redish color. Am I going about this right? Any tips on how to correct this problem?

PS: It usally will start again if I put it back on full choke and prime it again.

Yes it sounds like your starving for gas.
I don't think it's a venting problem.
Check the fuel line for cracks or loose connections.
You should have 3 adjustments. idle speed, Low speed and High speed. Turning the L H out or counter clock wise is what you want.
I'm not familiar with the caps on that auger but the malefactor will put them on to prevent you from adjusting the carb. Some you have to remove and some you have to push in and turn. You may have a dirty carb so any adjustments you make won't help at all. Theres been quite a bit posted on that topic already. Good Luck.
