      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

I know everyone has seen these things on tv but i purchased one when i must have been in a gullable mood. but my ? is has anyone used the miracle blade 3 series fillet knife. i figured that would be one of the better knifes to get, and if it ever dulls breaks or anything even if it is your fault you can return it with a lifetime garuntee. i remembered that off the show smile.gif kinda sad

i accidentally got an extra set too so it better be good. if anyone wanted it i would sell it, otherwise it will be a birthday gift to my mom.

Anyone ever buy knives from the guy at the Northwest Sportsman Show. He is there every year and I remember this product cuz he bent his knife to easily take the skin off of a tomato (he said cuz they wouldn't allow him to use fish at the show - health code reason). By 'bent' I mean, he took the tip of his knife against the cutting board and flexed it (alot more flex than my Rapala fillet knife has).

Most of those knives you see from
Rapala and the like have stainless
blades. While decently sharp when
new, they don't have that "flex"
that makes them a good filet knive.
After some use, they can become dull
and good luck putting the edge back
on a stainless blade!!! You are
way better off getting a knive with
a carbon steel blade. The average Joe
can put an edge back on one of these
plus the carbon steel has more flex
than its stainless cousin..IMO

One note on the Leech Lake Knifes, don't get one with the double sided blade. You remember real quickly that it is sharp on the top.

The guy at the Sportshow is Don Canney. The knives are called Leeck Lake Knives. I've had it for 3 years and get it sharpened each year at the show for free. It is by far the best fillet knife I've had. I can fillet fish much better with it. I think the belt they sharpen it on is diamond-impregnated. The edge stays very, very sharp for so long. I bought one for a good friend of mine last year and he agrees. When I was a younger, I thought "Who would spend so much on a fillet knife?" Through experience I've realized that quality equipment costs more because it is worth it. Search the internet for Leech Lake Knife Company and you should find all the information you need.

The double-sided blade (the tip is sharpened on the back side about 2 inches up) is one of the reasons why the main blade of these knives stay so sharp. I only cut myself two times before I learned how to use it properly. They provide the first bandaid with the knife.

    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins. 
    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
