      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 .

Walleye on the grill

Recommended Posts

After opener came home to cook up some walleye filets only to find out no crackers in the house, no shore lunch!!! Decide to cook them on the grill. Took a piece of tin foil and mopped it with melted butter placed the filets and seasoned with lemon pepper. Cooked for about five min. per side. Oh my God they were awesome. Health too. No smell in the house even the wife was happy.

I will have to try them on the grill some time. I get so used to cooking them one way that it is hard to experiment. Almost need the no ingrediates problem sometimes to force you into fixing them another way.

Also a bonus to make the wife happy.

You can cook them with butter or oil on the tinfoil. You can also cook them like salmon with the skin-on side directly on the grill. You can use just about any spice or liquid (lemon juice, mustard, bbq sauce, etc.) that you'd like.

It's hard to screw up cooking walleye. However, it's harder still to convince people to try something different.

I agree, everyone that thinks of eating walleyes automatically thinks of frying, not that it's bad or anything but there are alternates to cooking up your catch! Makes things a little more interesting.

My kids favorite way to have walleye is with yellow mustard. I also cook it in parchment paper with some wine, lemon slice parsley and some Frank's hot sauce. The wife loves it.

One of my favorite ways to cook walleye would be on the grill.

Take a sheet pan the will fit on your grill. Line it with foil.

Take sliced butter pads and place about half a stick in little chunks. Place filets on top of them. Sprinkle lemon pepper and garlic salt on filets.

Then finely chopped onions on top.

Then to top it off a sweeter BBQ sauce on top of the filets.

Bake until done.

You can't describe it until you try BBQ Walleye.

Here's a nice trick: Leave the skin on. If you leave the skin on you can skip the foil and place directly over the heat as long as it's not too hot. When the fish is done the fillet will peel right off the skin.

Better yet - plank 'em. Leave the skin on and grill 'em on a cedar plank skin side down(apple or hickory work too). Soak the plank in water for at least an hour prior to placing on the grill; 2-4 hrs is better.

I like to chunk up the walleye into cubes, rap each cube in bacon and then put them on a shishkabob, put them on the grill and lightly brush them with bbq sauce, mmmmm

I like to leave the skin on and place them on the grill. I first damp them of with a paper towel, then use the spray on butter then put whatever you want on them. The wife's favorite is raspberry hot sauce on top of them. Or cinnamon and brown sugar. My favorite is a maple and jalapeno rub with just a little shore lunch on top. Can't wait till the next batch.

Did walleye on the grill tonight. Sprinkled some Southwest seasoning and onion powder on the fillets and had them for some walleye tacos.

I've said it before but I'll say it again. You don't have to bread fish and deep fry them. Broiling, baking, microwave, and grilling are all excellent choices to add variety and better health. Bon appetite!

    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
    • It wasn't easy. I had to marry a Finn and be in good standing with MIL to get my foot in the door.   I then meet Matti Nykänen at a Pikkujoulu Party  when he noticed I had a new Nokia phone and asked to see it.  We talked for hours about our ski jumping days over a loaf of Pulla. Later the conversation turned to ice fishing and Nils Master.  His uncle was a sharpener in Finland and planned to come to the USA and sharpen. Said he could make a lot of money.   Turned out he wasn't authorized by Nils Master and his true intent was to smuggle brown bread in the US and in doing so lost his visa.  It was a huge embarrassment to his family and to Finland.   Finland needed a sharpener in the US but I was a Norwegian.   After some arm twisting by my MIL I was allowed to be trained but I had to sign a sworn document not to pass anything on to either Norway or the Russians. Even then I wasn't allowed to see how the blade was made, only how to sharpen and reshape a blade that needed reshaping.  Retire,  exercise and a Finnish Brown Bread is the key to a long life and you don't need to smuggle it. I order it online from New York and it keeps good for years.    
    • I drink Grain Belt and Schell's all the time. Buy Local!  
    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.
