      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.

N'lander,
Which american angler do you have? I am planning on gettting one for the father-in-law for Xmas. How is it for doing crappies and perch?

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.

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
