      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 .

Cordless electric fillet knife

Recommended Posts

I'm looking into getting an electric fillet knife and thought cordless would be the way to go. That way it would be a lot easier to fillet them out on the ice, especially northerns so you wouldn't have that slime in the house.

I did a search on them and came up with Rapala and Anglers' Best (maybe there's some others I didn't see.) Who has tried them and is one better than the other? Or maybe you have a reason not to go with a cordless. Anyway, all opinions are welcome.

Thanks, Steve

I bought cordless a few years ago and would not do it again. Unless Rapala has changede their battery problems, they don't last. They are always dead when you want to use them and if you don't use it enough, the batteries won't hold a charge. I use cordless tools everyday for construction and have great luck with them. My dad has some of the same tools, but rarely uses them. His batteries are always dead and have less than half the life of mine. With daily or very frequent use, cordless will work. Otherwise, I would get one with a cord. Good luck.

One bit of advice take note of the cord configuration when you open the Rappala Case up. It can be a chore to get everthing lined up and back into the case. But with a little practice it can be done no problem.

I have the Rapala coldless model and love it. I have not had any problems with batteries going dead quickly. I usually have both of them fully charged before putting them to use. Once the first battery starts to show signs of slowing I put it on the charger and use the fresh one. By the time the second battery is going dead the first is full charged.

Last winter I cleaned perch for about 2+ hours straight and only had to switch batteries a couple times.

I surely would not see a problem with the corded models if you always had a place to plug them into.

I got the cordless model as a gift a couple years ago and heard the same thing about the batteries not being very durable, but that has not been my experience.
