      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 .

I am looking at buying one and wanted to get some ideas and suggestions on what brand or type ppl like. Has anyone used a rechargeable one, and if so do you like it. I am torn between a rechargeable and a regular electric filet knife.

I have had a few and the best ones I had were the American angler that was not rechargable but ran off of my boats battery or my Marcum battery. It had about a 16' cord and gator clips. Worked great and I still use it.

I had a Rapala rechargable and it was great. A charge would last longer than I expected. I got the one in the grey case with all the goodies. Expensive but on sale at Gander it wasnt too bad. (I sure wish I could find it or whoever took it!)I would recomend both. I would not recomend the Mr.Twister brand. The one I had got HOT and didnt last but half a season before the motor died on it.

I bought a Rapala (not re-chargable) this summer. This was my best fishing equipment investment this season.

Going on 10 year's for my Mr Twister can't beat the price.

I'm not a big fan of cordless fillet knifes but if Northlander says his works good I'm sure it would work for you.

Like Gunflint I also have the Rapala corded model, you can plug it into a wall outlet or run it off any battery or cigerette lighter outlet, it comes with all the adapters you would need and a nice travel Case.....a little spendy though.

Good Luck....

go with the rapala, corded model. worth every penny. for it's price, the durability and construction of the knife and blades are second to none.

The American Angler Ultra has been a very good knife for me. I've tried most of the others and they didn't last much more than a season. The Ultra has a 2 year warranty and I haven't needed to use it.

I have had the Rapala (non-rechargable with long cord) for 3 years now and have cleaned/fileted hundreds of fish, mostly pike, and love it. Fishing partners used it this weekend for a 23 person fish fry. It worked flawlessly, it did heat up a little, but no problems at all.

I have cleaned alot of fish with mine. Whatever brand you buy make sure you have one with the very sharp curved tip, not the blunt ones. Cant remember what my brand is but I have the wrong blades, but I have tortured it on at least 1000 fish, and wash it right in the bloody water when Im done, case and all. Works everytime, its a green and yellow machine and is 110V corded.

Sounds like a Mr.Twister knife.. I have a Mr.Twister one as well and use it for filleting fish and carving turkey... They also have a salt water version, that has the knife tip that you are talking about. Its called the Piranha.. you can find it onthe Mr.Twister web site. If you plan to order, keep in mind that MRTwister is a FishingMinnesota sponsor and is offering us 20$ off if you use the special Mr.Twister page designed for FM users.

I've got a mister twister that I've had for two years and it works great. I also bought a cheap electric knife at walmart for the kitchen for $3 a year ago. To be honest, it has the same blades and body as the Mr Twister, just white. I've used it when my Dad and I clean fish and it works the same. Just my two cents.
