      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!

    • Talk about humor, the original post was from April 2013.    I'm sure the OP has already bought his treadmill, used it as a clothes hanger and re-sold it on C-r-a-i-g-s-l-i-s-t. 
    • Deer numbers on PUBLIC land in NW WI are very low.  Private land seems to be the opposite.  I hunt a number of public areas in Polk County for the last ~10 years or so.   You have to work pretty hard to shoot a deer there.  MFL land is also heavily hunted, but there are lots of opportunities.   Once you learn an area you might do alright, but it is tough if you are new to the region.   Don't expect to get permission to hunt on any farms, in my experience they are all tied up for friends/family.
    • Thanks for the humor.

    • boys........boys.......................boys.................do you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.
