      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 .

Wusthof (or other high end) Fillet Knives

Recommended Posts

My dad recently lost his old trusty fillet knife, and with his B-day coming up I was looking at replacing it for him. I was looking at the Wusthof fillet knives, as I have heard outstanding things about their regular kitchen knives.

Anyone else have any experience with these knives and can make a recommendation.

I have a Leech Lake KNife made by Don Chaney (I thing that is the guy that makes them). I would not leave for fishing without it. I have only sharpened it twice in the 5 yrs I have owned it. Still sharp as a razor.

the wusthof knives are amazing but extremely expensive. Between $70 and $100 depending on the model. If you can afford it, go for it.

I have a Leech Lake knife and love it and if you ask I am sure that they would engrave his name and birthday on it. They put my name on it at the greater nw sports show but I am sure they would do it by mail order.

The Leech knives are very, very nice. I am also partial to Dunn knives, but they are big $$$. I have a friend that has a set of Wusthoff's in the kitchen, and they are also excellent.

My wife got me an inexpensive Rapala electric fillet knife. Wow! My old fillet knives are going to be very lonely now.

The Leech Lake Knives look great, thanks for bringing them to my attention.

Yeah, I know. But I was thinking that it may be funny to put that on too.

My Dad and Brother both have Wusthof filet knives and swear by them. Kind of spendy, but worth it if you clean a lot of fish.

I've got a Wusthof fillet knife and it's a great knife. I always wanted a higher end fillet knife, but price was always an issue. I bought it because I got it for an extremely low price(70% off). The only draw back is it's a 9" blade and it's too much knife for a majority of the fish I catch around home here. I do get a lot of use out of it when I go down to Florida.

I have a set of wusthoff kitchen knives and they are awesome!

I'm pretty sure my next fillet knife will be a leech laker.I've always heard good things about them and I like the tradition that it has had.

American Angler makes a decent Electric knife. I've burned out one (over 5 years) and getting close on the second one. the blades that come with it are too big (specially for sunfish) but they make smaller blades that work great. If your dad cleans a lot of fish, he'll be glad to have an electric.

I have a Leech Lake Knife and have bought 3 for my fishing buddies. They usually put "Made especially for" and then the name of the person you are giving it to but I've had them put short phrases on it instead like "For all of the good times" or "For all the fish to come". They are an awesome knife. I usually get mine sharpend one each year at the Sportshow but my friends have gone 2 or 3 years without getting it sharpened and they stay sharp.

Do you think they would engrave "Hot Grease Release!" on there for you? I am thinking I would like to get one of those Leech Lake Knives. My room mate had a set of Wustof knives, (no fillet knife though) and they were amazing. I loved using those things. My knives aren't too bad, but comparing them to the Wustofs is not even an option.

For non electric it is a leech lake for me that thing is amazing. I love it. Then for electric you can not beat the rapala. Those are what I used and I have been using both now for about 5 years. My rapala is starting to get tired. The trigger sticks and doesn't always shut off when I want it to but I probably filet a few more fish per year than the average guy too grin.gif.

      Hi, I am selling my 2012 Polaris Ranger 800 XP camo. Very low miles, 1200. Full hard cab, flip out glass windshield, windshield wiper, almost like new still. Great for ice fishing, hunting and work around the house.  I also have this ad on C.L.  10,000 b/0 text me for pics, thanks.  I am located in west metro 763-two34-0837

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.
