      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 .

You could put through some kind of
knife "torture test"!! A while back,
I had left my filet knife out and the
wife had been using it for all kinds
of things, including cutting stuff on
the stone counter-top...OOOUUUCCCHHHHH!!!!!
Since then, I have never left it out
again.

on tv they used the miracle blade for cutting sheet rock, cutting wood, cutting concrete slab, everything you could think of and it was still just as sharp as new. everyone has probably seen that commercial though. if nothing else i can saw through a frozen fruit can smile.gif
if it cant stay sharp cutting eelpout for lacross i might as well return it for a full refund and refund of the shipping costs smile.gif and i get to keep one of the knifes free of cost smile.gif i should be on that commercial.

aight now that i am talkin to myself smile.gif

tried the miracle blade "filet" knife on a limit of 11-12" crappies i just caught. not bragging or anything smile.gif but just wanted to let you know what fish i did the test on.

the blade was larger than most but it seemed to work very well. i would not use this knife on small panfish but the larger the fish the greater this knife would work. it cut awesome, and i mean awesome. without even trying the meat just jumped out of the skin and bones. i am not that good at filleting yet but with this knife i didn't miss a lot of meat. out of a 10 i would give this knife a 10 on large fish. i did fillet a 9.5"er and it did fillet good though.
hope this helps some of you, it was well worth the money. when i get bigger fish as in walleyes or anything ill give another report. and the other knifes cut awesome too. expesially that rock n chop, sweet knife smile.gif

it cut the fish like butter smile.gif

through bones, scales and everything it really did seem like it was way to easy. i had the rapala knife and that did take some cutting back and forth to get through the first cut near the gills. i really put these knifes on a torture test too and they passed.
and the meat really does jump out using this thing.
and if it is a thumbs up from the pig sticka it is a good product smile.gif
thanks for replying exude i was begining to think i was crazy talkin to myself.

the whole set is worth the money if you use knifes alot. i see those expensive fillet knifes you people post and they are upwards of 60-100 bucks. this whole set even with 15 bucks shipping is 55 bucks. and you get i think 16 knifes and a juicer smile.gif

if nothin else you can always chop your frozen juice cans and cut apart your tabletops and sheetrock.

using them in the kitchen is really awesome. used em for cutting veggies and fruit and they did awesome. still does great on the fish. the knife has cleaned over a hundred crappies and is still as sharp as ever. the scissors just cut through a pretty thick metal rope like butter. i wonder how in the heck they made these things so sharp, and why doesn't other companys do the same thing?

All right already, I am going to order the knives today. I have been telling my wife about them and last night she told me to shut up and order them. Pig stcka- how many steak knives did you get? I think it comes with 4, if thats the case the wife says we have to order two sets so that all the steak knives match when we have company once a year. I thought women were supposed to be the more logical of the species. I dunno, one for the house and one in the tackle box.

They sell the Miracle Blade knives at the Mall of America in a store called "As seen on TV" (as well as all the other stuff you have "seen" and forgotten about, on TV)

i guess they sent 2 wood blocks with my order and they were on a 30 day trial. if any of you ordered them over the phone and got these thinkin you didn't order them youll have to pay for them. i was billed for 80 extra bucks and i gave em a call to find out that is what happened. they said they would send a repostage box so i can send em back and get a refund for the 80 bucks. just something i thought i would add, kinda weird because i didn't ask for anything but the knifes.
i gave a set to my mom for her birthday and she loves the knifes. she uses em for everything now.
anyone else use these things for cleanin fish? how do they compare to other knifes? i know it is alot better than my rapala knifes. i hated sharpening every 2-3 fish.

      Now is the time to talk to kids about the dangers of thin ice. As temperatures continue to dip below freezing, ice is forming on many lakes, ponds and rivers. But conditions vary across the state.  Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Hannah Mishler has already responded to multiple ice rescue calls. “Ice, especially snow covered ice, is extremely deceptive. You can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” Mishler said. With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward the newly formed ice for entertainment. “Teach your children that ice is never 100 percent safe,” cautions Mishler. “If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” While adults and children are recreating outdoors, they should always take precautions around any body of water during the cold water season. Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator, advises in addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). When a child is near the ice, an adult should be near the child. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Good chance I will be there after 1pm.... thanks for putting this together.   Plan on bringing 4 wheeler. ... and hoping Daughter can make it :-)

      It’s been interesting in Central MN so far.  There are plenty of lakes that have very walkable ice and ice that could hold ATV traffic but also several that stayed mostly to partly open for longer than expected.  Several lakes have both rideable ice and open water as of last weekend. There are only a couple lakes that I’ve been tracking that I would commit to an ATV ride on right now, especially with the new snow cover.  We lost the ability to see what “generation” of ice you were on this week.  On the plus side, we’ve had good ice making conditions all week. Short story: There are lakes that are ready to fish but don’t assume they all are.  Phone ahead to a resort or bait shop to find out about particular lakes if you don’t get the info here.  Buy your bait at the shop that gives you your key info. Be extra cautious this weekend until you’ve proven the ice you want to fish.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck
