      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 .

Yeah I second the xd 50 it is a sythetic blend. the xd 30 is plain old tcw 3 oil and is the least expensive and it would be ok but it does not have the carb x additive that helps keep carbon buildup to a min. The xd 100 is pure sythetic and would be the "best" but the cost is like $45 a gallon and I think that your motor is a bit of an oil hog if I remember correctly. I buy xd 50 in bulk from the dealer and only pay around 20 a gallon.

i did the perferred customer thing from the oilman. best thing possible if you use enough oil. i run it in all 2-stroke stuff as well as my car. gets me discounts on boat oil, car oil, oil filter, air filter, and they have a varitey of other products as well including ngk sparkplugs, mothers car care products and more. i buy oil in 2-1/2 gallon jugs, saves even more $$$

Im on that program and it pays for itself easy. I use Amsoil in everything from my boat to auger, weedwacker, leaf blower, lawn mower etc. Love it. I live in Superior Wi. so I get it right at the warehouse.

Thanks again for the help guys, just picked up the HP Injector. Is it best to drain or burn up the oil in your tank? I have about 1/4 of the tank left.

Same question from me. Can you mix Amsoil with a little standard 2 stroke oil that is remaining in the oil reserve tank, or do you need to get it out of there?

AMSOIL HP Injector is compatible to mix, but it is best to minimize mixing.

Draining an outboard injection oil tank is on most engines difficult, nearly impossible, or at best very sloppy.

Never take a chance on running out of oil!

I recommend run your current oil down to the low oil warning light/buzzer goes, then top the tank with the AMSOIL HP Injector. This way you minimize the mixing.

just switched over my fathers 89 evinrude to amsoil. we burnt up as much regular oil as we dared leaving only a little bit in the resevoir, then put a gallon of hp injector in. havent run it enough to notice the difference but i know we will! it says right on the jug to minimize mixing. buy the gallon jugs for a better deal.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required.
