      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 .

Bacon wrapped walleye

Recommended Posts

I had some walleye fillets thats were a bit thick to fry in the skillet.

From a suggestion from another FMer, I cut the fillets up into smaller pieces and wrapped them in bacon and stuck tooth picks in them. I place them on the grill until the bacon was starting to get crispy. I used the thicker bacon but I believe the regular bacon would work better.

One very good meal of eye. This would also work well for Hor- dourves for a party.

Sounds good Harvey Lee! I bet any kind of fish would taste good this way as long as the fillets were thick enough to hold up intil the bacon got done!

They sure are good!

Did a batch up Sunday night that way with the fish cubes dusted with a bit of cajun seasoning before being wrapped in bacon. Make sure to soak you toothpicks in water for a couple of hours to keep them from totally burning.

Made these up last night on the grill and they were incredible. I even took some leftovers to lunch today and still very good.

Thanks for the recipe.

I do them on kabob skewers, they are easier to handle than tooth picks. Try basting them lightly with barbecue sauce while grilling them with wrapped in bacon. It even gets those people that are non-fish-eaters to enjoy some walleye. I usually clean the walleye with the "zipper" method so the fillet is split into a top and bottom half, so i use the thicker, top half, to cube and make kabobs and then take the thinner belly side of the fillet and wrap in foil with butter.

If you end up with a fillet too big to fry it can be butterflied - just like shrimp. Separate the belly meat from the backstrap and butterfly the backstrap. If you need to butterly the belly, the fish should be at the taxidermist.

Just pulled some LOTW walleye from March out of the freezer. Wrapped it some bacon made by a friend. Dusted the fish in a little Tony Chachre cajun seasoning.

Took some home grown green beans and wrapped them in foil with garlic, butter and sea salt.

FANTASTIC!

The kids were going banannas at how good it was.
