      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 .

AMSOlL for an outboard?

Recommended Posts

I have an older ('76) 35hp Johnson outboard that runs 50:1 premixed fuel. This past winter I ran AMSOIL in my auger and was very happy with the results. Now it is springtime and getting to be openwater season and I am wondering...

Can I run Saber at 100:1 in an outboard motor? Or will I blow it up? Mabe there is something better?

There are 2 different Saber 2-cycle oils.

Saber Professional is for air-cooled pre-mix engines only - auger, chain saw, string trimmer, blower, etc. Do NOT use in your outboard.

Saber Outboard is for water-cooled pre-mix - i.e. - outboards. An 8-oz bottle will mix a 6-gallon can of gas, also available in quarts. You will get the same great performance with this as you got with the Saber Professional in your auger!

Another choice - HP Injector is for all the oil injected 2-stroke outboards. HP Injector can be used as a 50-1 pre-mix oil.

I have an 1987 Johnson 25 hp and I mix it 100:1. I have been very happy with the results. Lower idle, less smoke, and overall smoother running. Go ahead and mix it 100:1 as scary as that may sound.

I was told by a marine tech that when you us 100 to 1 ratio that if your motor sits more than 3 weeks you should fog that motor before letting it sit that long. Has any one heard that before??

I wouldn't recommend fogging except for off-season storage. It can be troublesome to do, and if you over-fog, cranking the engine the next time can be a real chore.

I have never seen a problem with storage when using the AMSOIL Saber products (either Saber Professional in air cooled or Saber Outboard in water cooled). The AMSOIL Saber products leave a better film of protection than other oils. Was that tech referring to using AMSOIL or a different brand?

I ran Amsoil in my 2 stroke 15hp last year and it ran great. At the end of the season I just ran it dry and put the motor in the basement. I was too lazy and anxious to get the boat out to do anything but hook up the gas tank with last years mix in it. The motor started right up and ran better than it did last season I think!!! Amsoil is a great product and I now run it in all my small engines and they perform alot better!!

    • Yea, I'm not sure when this project is gonna get evicted from the shop area that i'm using so we had to get it weather proof first. Ideally i think the interior first is a better approach. We ran into some issues wiring that would've been easier handling from the outside. 
    • They don't save cap space that is the whole point. The money is still spent. What it allows them to do is go OVER the cap during such time a player is on LTIR. It doesn't give them relief at all, it just allows them to go over the cap. We already have Coyle on LTIR so it wouldn't do any good to add Parise to that. That would mean two moves would have to happen when they are both healthy. The Wild could do that too, but what sense would that make because they would be forced to be compliant once Parise is healthy. Hossa is likely going to be LTIR all year. At this point I doubt Parise will be out that long. Russo did a very good writeup on it last night for TheAthletic. You can also read up on it on CapFriendly.
    • I'm on board with the others, sounds legal to me!  Best of luck hunting! Kettle
    • Was in Joes sporting goods last night and they had the 8" K drill for $219
    • Sounds good to me.
    • It should be as long as the wma butts up to the lake,
    • 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.
