      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 .

I've read all the great posts about Strikemaster customer service and now I can add my testimony! I bought a Lazer Mag last February and it ran great throughout last season. I summerized it properly, put a new plug and fresh gas in it this season and had no luck starting it. I thought it was a carb issue since I could get the thing to fire but it wouldn't stay running. I brought it into Strikemaster today and had them look at it. Jason did a great job even going above and beyond to help the customer. He tried a new carb, lamination and spark plug but even he couldn't get it to run. Mike said they would put a new powerhead on it free of charge. I was in and out in about forty minutes. I wish more companies stood behind their products like Strikemaster! It's companies like Strikemaster that keep a customer coming back. P.S. I did feel guilty and buy a sweatshirt so they made a little something out of the deal.

i love my strikemaster. ive never had one problem with it.... ok one but that was my own fault, the knot just came out of the pull cord. Took it apart and melted the knot to hold better. other then that starts in a few pulls everytime, whether its -10 out or 30 above. Funny how i hear jiffy ppl complain, buddy has had 3-4 of them and couldnt get a single one to idle right from day one. (reason hes had 3-4 is cuz they would exchange for the same one but not return it for a refund)

I have a jiffy, and end up using buddies strike master when we fish together. My jiffy really binds up at the end of the hole. His strike master will power right threw, and they are both single blades.

another sucker I bought a big 10 incher 3hp jiffy and had the same problem, the thing would throw me all over the place, it would go through the hole great until the last inch or so, and you had better hang on that sun of gun hit like a musky at the end. I gave the thing away and got a strikemaster and have no problems what so ever. by far the superior unit.

I have had no problems with my 23 year old jiffy. I agree with with river rat says on the dull blades though. The best customer service IMO is one you never have to use though. A company should stand behind their product if it goes bad in a short period of time.

I will say that my jiffy starts very well. My buddy and I had both our augers pulling in a sled behind the atv. By the time we got to the house everything was caked with snow. The recoil was completely filled. My jiffy started against all odds, his strike master wanted to go, but the throttle cable was froze and wouldnt move. Hard to hate on an auger that will start in that situation.

    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
    •   You'd poke yer eye out. 
    • Hi, from the Northwest Angle! Water temps are staying consistently in the low 70’s.

      Stateside, walleye fishing has been good from Lunatic to Garden Islands. The edges of islands and reefs in 22-29’ will provide walleye, perch and occasional large pike. Most productive methods have been minnows on gold spinners and deep diving crank baits in UV tiger, clown and blue/chrome.

      Canadian walleyes can be had jigging minnows with gold, pink, and chartreuse on edges of reefs.  Monkey Rocks is holding many schools of fish currently, as well as, reefs south of Deepwater Bay. Bottom bouncing outside these reefs will produce fish as well. Muskie fishing has slowed a little, however nice fish in upper 40’s can be caught in “windows” of time, usually coinciding with Majors and Minors.

      We hope to see you for some fantastic fall fishing & hunting!
    • He isn't going to set the world on fire, but only been a minus guy 3 times in his entire career. While Scandella is a -10 for his career. Quincey is more physical so I think that will be good. There is probably more upside with Scandella, no, definitely there could be, but he was really terrible last year. Perhaps Quincey gets paired with Dumba. That would be good for Dumba because when he was paired with Leopold he had his best stats following picking him up.
    • cloudy and rainy here today is gonna take all the fun out it. I do know the fish didn't cooperate for a sundown bite last night.
    • After two years cables go too.  Its all about maintenance.  If you case them and keep them lubed up there are plenty of people that have had electric jacks for may years.  Good reason its becoming almost a standard upgrade on many RV's out there.  Will report back, we are pulling the house back from the lake in a couple  weeks so should get a start on it inside of the month.
    • Any type of charging/starting systems should ALWAYS be fused. Basic wiring 101. If not, and you fry the he** out of something, no complaints are allowed.
    • The guy that built my frame talked me out of them. He said the first yr or two there great. Then problems start, he said I would be coming back to him and putting a winch system back on. He said he has taken the electric off lots of frames and put them back to winch system.   With the two speed winch and a cordless drill it is so easy.
