      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 .

Winterizing ice fishing auger?

Recommended Posts

Put Stabil in the gas (follow directions on bottle, I think 1 oz. Stabil treats 2.5 gallons gas) and run it for a while to make sure Stabil makes it into the carb. Drain the rest of the gas from the tank and the start the motor again to run the gas out of the carb and line. When the motor starts to run rough (almost out of gas), spray fogging oil into the carburetor so it gets into the motor. Make sure you have the airbox off when you start the motor for the last time so you can stick the "straw" from the fogging oil can into the carburetor.

Put auger in a dry place to ensure that it doesn't get any moisture/condensation in it over the summer.

filler up with fresh gas/oil mixture and seafoam. run it for a bit to get new gas and seafoam through the carb. Shut if off and store it upright. Start every month or so over the summer.

Keep gas tank full to avoid condensation issues.

I've had A Strikemaster (2) for the past 16 years all I do is drain the gas,run the engine until it runs out of gas and store it upright. Make sure to loosen the gas cap and also the breather cap.

All I do every season is put stabil in the full tank and let it sit. I have yet to have an issue.

If I remember, I start it once or twice during the off season.
