      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 .

Recommended Posts

Strikemaster Lazer mag express, takes 30-40 pulls to get it running. New gas, good plug. Any suggestions on an easy way to clean the carb without pulling it all the way off?

Running some seafoam through it is an option to see if it cleans it up, but if you really want to do a thorough job you'll have to pull it apart.

how much "new gas" have you run through it? It may take a few runs to get fresh gas through it. The sea foam may help, but Ill also agree you probably need to pull it off to clean it. its not all that complicated though.

Can you put sea foam in and then just use it or should you run it through all at once? Has anyone had good luck using seafoam on a strike master?

Thanks

I always forget to drain/run my Jiffy dry in the spring. But I run Sea-Foam in the gas mixture. I've never had carb or diaphragm issues and my auger is 13 years old. Sea-foam is highly recommended by the mechanic how worked on my auger twice.

I have an old Mag 2000 head with a lazer bit and hadn't run it since last year when I just threw it in the corner after LOTW. I went out to start it this year and it wouldn't start in about 20 pulls. No biggie, I pulled the plug, removed the gas tank and line, and took the side plates off the carb. Sprayed some Sea Foam Deep Creep in there, cycled the piston a few times without the plug to get the cylinder walls cleaned of carbon, and blasted some into the carb. I also sprayed some in the fuel line to clean the garbage out of there. Put it back together, put some new gas in it and it fired on 1/2 a pull. Same plug from two years ago too. Sea Foam Deep Creep or Knocker Loose will get them things running like nobody's business.

    • I just read as of today, no lakes in Mn are ice free
    • I hit the woods yesterday morning and snuck into a little clearing and ended up being anout 50 yards from where they were roosting. They were very vocal and a few hens sounding off too. Soon as i started to call after they flew down the hens really got into it and accually pulled the toms to the west of me. I did get 1 to come in but only had like a 5-6 inch beard and 2 differnt groups of jakes so knowing there is around 20 toms in the flock of 80 or so i passed on him . Pretty hard to compete with that many hens. The snow is finaly starting to go so i think it will only get better. Heading out in the morning for a short hunt due to work.
    • Still on a roll heading into 2018 
    • Might have to as my garage up north is darn near full to. Sleds will be going into storage soon so that will free up a little space. Storage space is actually pretty cheap compared to building your own
    • Dang Walleye, dude you need to build a Toy barn out back to start holding all these toys! 
    • Thanks guys!  Excited to be back, and thankful for the late allowance!  I hit may 2 - 5th.  Bringing my boy on his first time out this weekend with a gun.  Looking froward to it all!  Good luck guys!!!
    • Will take a little bit to get used to but will spend less time mowing this year and more time doing fun things. If anyone is looking for and older cheaper riding mower I will have a couple of them for sale as soon as I get them out of storage next week. Ones a Craftsman and ones a Scotts. Both well maintained and good shape and will be in the 250 to 300 range.
    • Old Man Winter is refusing to loosen his grip on Wisconsin, dropping from a few inches to more than 2 feet of snow in across the state in a series of snowstorms in the last week. Crews from Pattison State Park and the Brule River State Forest continued to groom ski trails and reported good to excellent conditions. Other properties have put away grooming equipment but skiing was still fair on ungroomed trails through central and even southern Wisconsin. After another 15 inches of snow this week, ski trails were groomed April 17 at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase Thompson, DNRThe weather kept many fishermen inside this week, but warm weather this week should bring out lots of anglers. Walleye fishing was picking up on the Oconto, Peshtigo, Menominee and Wolf rivers prior to the snow, but then water temperatures dropped dramatically. There have still been hundreds of shore anglers and boaters out on the Fox River to catch a trophy walleye. Sturgeon are in the Wolf River, but with cold water it will be at least a week or longer before spawning will occur. This satellite image taken by NOAA about noon April 19 shows snow cover across almost all of WisconsinPhoto credit: NOAAMost Door County ramps and access points are blocked with snow. Before the storm fishing was fairly productive. Boats launching at Sturgeon Bay were trolling for browns. Steelhead fishing was good before the storm with numbers of fish showing up in creeks. .
