      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 .

Any New Lund Rebel owners out there?????

Recommended Posts

My dad and I bought the new Lund Rebel XL SS this spring and have had it out about a dozen times. I think the dealer has the wrong pitched prop on the motor for a couple reasons. At about half throttle, the RPM's are between 5,000 and 5,500. At full throttle it's tached out at 7,000 RPM's (max on gauge). We have a 75 hp four stroke Merc on the back. Is it just me or are the RPM's running high? That's my main concern and the dealer didn't even make sure my graph worked as I've been getting the dreaded "GPS module not responding". I've tried everything I can think of and still no luck with it. I'm brining it in this coming week to have both issues dealt with. Should I plan on paying the bill or should the dealer "eat" this one as I feel both issues should have been dealt w/ before the boat left thier lot?

Thanks,

Brian

I would jsut explain to the dealer that the wrong prop was not your fault nor was the GPS issue. That itself should take care of it.

I agree, not your fault. The prop issue is a huge mistake. You could harm that motor if you are not careful.

I would definately make the dealer "EAT" this one. I am not sure what size prop is currently on the motor, but it is WAY underpitched. I am not sure what the RPM range is for the Merc, but I know that 7000 is way too high. I have a 90hp Opti and the max range on RPMs for that is 5750. On thing that you should do is goto the Merc HSOforum and use their prop selector and see what size prop they recommend for your motor. What size prop is on your motor now? Look inside the hub and it will be stamped there.

Same thing with your GPS.......I would say it isn't wired correctly. This should have been checked way before you ever picked up the boat. Dealer error for certain!

I just bought an Alumacraft and the tach was reading 1/2 scale-they had to reset a dial on the back of the tach as it was set for the wrong cylinder motor. Could be the same issue on yours. I really doubt that the motor would overrev that much as the power would really fall off after 5500-6000 rpm. Motor probably has a rev limiter to prevent 7500 rpm also.

Your motor should be runing at 6,000 and not any over that. I do agree with the others, I'm guessing the pole position isn't set right on the tach as I'm sure your motor has a rev limiter that kicks in between the 6-7,000 rpm range.

Both should be fixed by the dealer for no charge.

    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.
