      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 .

Heartburn from Fresh Walleye (baked too!)

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has any experience with this. I love to catch and eat fish, specifically walleye.

About 2 years ago while on an ice fishing trip I experienced heartburn for the first time in my life. I didn't even know what heartburn was until this time. I experienced it after eating fried walleyes and crappies. Ever since then the same thing happens, fried or baked, it doesn't matter. And it sets in really quickly too, like after just a couple of bites of walleye. This heartburn can be something very fierce too, like cripple me over and cry about it pain!

I can eat sushi, shrimp and other salt water fish with no problem, but for some reason the fresh fish that are near and dear to my life cause me this problem.

I seem to find relief by taking an acid reflux pill a few hours before the meal, but usually I forget or don't know we are having fish for dinner that night.

Any ideas? Anyone else have a similar experience?

That's a tough one. I've experienced heartburn from eating Walleye but it's usually related to how it's prepared, especially if it's deep fried. But baked! Man that's tough. It's almost a perfect food. It's extremly lean, low calorie, low cholesteral and virtually fat free! It pretty much comes down to how you prepare it. Have you tried poaching it?

i take a reflux everyday regardless of what we are eating. my wife was using cayenne pepper in everything for a while. I did not know it. One day at work after eating lunch i thought geez im having a heart attack. Had the medics check me out nothing on the machine so i went home. Then i found out that it was the cayenne she was using. I take a prylosec every morning heck had mexican for lunch and beans and brisket for dinner no problems. Is it a cure all no but has kept mine to minimum

I should note I don't get heartburn from anything else....nothing! I'm thinking this could be an allergy possibly?

You're right in thinking that it could be an allergy! My girlfriend used to love eating fish, but suddenly after eating some , she had trouble swallowing, her lips and tongue went numb, plus she had problems breathing. Be carefull!

Happens to me just like this. I ate fish or shelfish weekly for 25 years, then "grew into" an allergy. Started with shelfish, then saltwater, and now freash as well. Not good.

Be carefull

Neighbor Guy, did you get the heartburn from it? Or some other side effect?

My friend is allergic to walleye and pike...he can't eat either of them no matter how he prepares them. He gets really sick with lots of symptoms (heartburn included). This just "hit" him one day and has been plauged with it ever since. His dr told him that this kinda stuff can go away as it takes about a 7 year cycle or he may be stuck with it the rest of his life.

Another friend of mine is allergic to walleye slime. He breaks out in bad rashes when he comes in contact with it unless he washes it off asap.

It doesn't matter what lake, BWCA, Mille Lacs, Upper Red, Alexandria lakes or small metro lakes. And its not limited to walleyes, same effect from crappies, bluegills and pike. It also doesn't matter if its open water or ice fishing season. Fresh or frozen fillets. Plain and simply sucks.

Should probably bring it up with my dr next time I'm in.

Doc says they can't test for fresh water fish allergies. Thinks I should just be careful about it. Take heartburn pill in advance if I want to eat it.

Hopefully I will grow out of it like I seem to have grown into it.

Grabs, from the symptoms it sounds like maybe the seasoning you're using, or extra butter when you bake the fish might be part of it. Something you could try to verify if it's actually the fish would be to try Poaching them. My wife loves walleye this way. Just put about a quart of water in a pan, bring to a boil, then add the fish and cook for 5-7 minutes, til it flakes easily. Take them out, then try using just salt for seasoning the first time, and see if you still get the burn.

I can get heartburn too if I use the wrong seasonings on my fish. 2 specks of Cayanne will turn my bowels to liquid in about 1 minute!! I figure it's just part of getting old...... : - )

Grabs - I have the exact same issue. I see this is an old post, so I'm hoping you get my response.

I've been struggling with this for about 10 years. I'm curious if you found anything out or if you have found a way to deal with this issue.

You can email me at douglas.kolb@gmail.com if you want.

Thx

Doug

    • I don't mind Evan Williams but it's no where near as good as Trader Joe's but then again my beer of choice is Old Mill.    I've got a set of these bullet chillers on the way. Somehow I became a booze snob and didn't want my cheap Bourbon watered down and I'd rather have it chilled.  Less than 20 on the big A.
    • Bacon is cured already silly!
    • like any addiction............there are cures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Snow has finally stuck up north. With temperatures in the teens and low 20s it looks like it is here to stay. Several properties in the north are reporting between 6 and 10 inches, while the southern half of the state has seen primarily sporadic dustings up to a couple inches. While many ski trails still need additional snow and time to prepare, the Brule River, Northern Highland-American Legion and Point Beach state forests are grooming trails and making ready for the influx of skiers.At this point only Iron County in far northern Wisconsin is reporting that snowmobile trails are open, on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR).Ice conditions have not substantially improved. While there may be 10 inches of snow in Mercer, much of the ice on Iron County lakes varies between only1 and 4 inches. Those early ice anglers that are venturing out have reported solid catches for panfish and northern pike biting on Lake Poygan and those fishing Lake Chetac in Sawyer County are landing walleye, northern pike and panfish. There are just a few weeks left to turkey hunt and now is a good time to see turkeys feeding in fields and wooded areas. Pheasant hunters should note that the state game farm will be releasing an additional 1,500 birds on five wildlife areas prior to the holidays for some late season hunting. .
