      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 .

Friend of mine at work just got one. Looks sweat. I like my American Angler. Going on 2 years with the same blade and no problems. I fillet a few fish too. I like the cig adaptor and the option to run off the truck or boat battery. Only drawback I see with the Rapala is its heavy.

I've got one.. as does a friend of mine (who got me hooked on electric fillet knives in the first place)... and I love it. I've got the pack that is wired for 12V, which also comes with the 110 inverter... it's a handy tool when cleaning a mess of fish... I rarely use my regular knife any more...

Just curious,
I got one (American Angler) as a gift this summer but still have yet to use it. Would it work for cutting a deer up as long as I'm not going through bones?

Chris I have the 12 volt D.C. Model No.31001. It has a 18' cord and I can run it off my cig. lighter, truck battery or Boat battery. I bet ya could run it off a extra Vex battery too but I didnt try that yet. Perch and Crappie are where it shines. Doesnt get dull on all those scales like my reg. knifes. Practice slowly on the first few fish and in no time you will be using it 90% of the time. Great for long trips all year round. I paid less than $20 for it on clearance at G.M. Wally world has them too.

I got one last year for christmas. The first one, I had problems with it. The switch stuck and I couldn't get it to turn off.

The manufacturer replaced it no questions asked and it's been great ever since.

    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.

    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
