      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 .

Cookin on the ice

Recommended Posts

Renting a shack up on Red next weekend and curious how everyone cooks their fish in the house and what they bring up as far as cooking utensils. Just looking for a tasty quick and easy way. First time staying in a permanent. Thanks

My buddy has a propane fueled crock pot that works great for cooking on the ice. We will often do brats cooked in beer and kraut. The other favorite is to make pulled pork or beef ahead of time and then heat it up in the pot.

Check with who you are renting from, they will tell you what to bring as to sleeping bags, cooking stuff, etc. If there's a stove for cooking you are in good shape, just bring oil and a pan, and breading.

We've used portable cook tops, frying saucer, and deep fryers on the ice. My wife likes to bake the fish but never tried that method on the ice.

For the LOW trip early this Winter used Panko for the fish and it turned out rather tasty.

Quick, tasty, and easy would be to just pan fry your fish.

If they have a cooking stove in the shack fine, if not, bring a Coleman single burner that runs on 1# propane bottles, a frying pan,a little flour or Panko to roll the fish in, salt, pepper, and oil.

Suggest that you also bring baked beans and bread and butter.

SUSHI !

Just kidding.

Make sure to save the carcasses of the fish consumed as if the CO stops they will need to measure them. Also the fish in the fry pan and carcasses count toward your limit as you know.

"Andy's" breading sold at fleet farm or hyvee sticks well without egg wash , the RED is seasoned perfect for me. Not too spicy.

Quickest would be to bring a deep pan and lots of oil to deep fry.

    • Thanks. I decided to go with my gut, and ordered medium light action 8'6" Depthmaster rods. Spent some time trolling with them the other day, and I think they'll be fine. Just gotta remember to be careful with the larger fish around the boat when netting. Now if I could just better understand seasonal locations/presentations for my local walleye, I'd be all set! Trolled for 4.5 hrs without so much as a nibble yesterday. Trolled various cranks and harnesses the entire time, at different depths/speeds (1.0-1.5 mph with harnesses, and 1.8 -2.4 with cranks), hoping to make contact with one. I did find the Precission Trolling app to be pretty darn accurate with my dive curves though. So that was refreshing ... :-)
    • Nice bird! After my uneventful day Sat I gave Sunday a break Going out Monday morning to see If I can tag one.
    • Just me, or is 7:15 odd for birds to fly up to roost? 2 just flew up 75 yds out.
    • Congrats Donbo. Great looking bird.  
    • Way to go Ryan, and Dad. Can't wait to see the pics. Congrats
    • Well good weekend in the woods! Never got a bird in range! Will be back out! Nice Donbo!!!
    • Good job Wally, always love to see your early season successes.  Nice bird AS!  Long season ahead with no tag in the pocket huh?
    • Good job guys! Great start to the season.
    • Totally agree with you featherslayer. I have a bud who will be down May 2. Just as much fun calling for him and figuring strategy as shooting one myself. More fun actually.
    • Very disappointing season so far. Getting swept by Tampa Bay is unacceptable! No reason to believe we won’t get swept by the Yankees either. 4 game series against the twins could be exactly what Giancarlo Stanton needs to break out of his slump.
