      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 .

Best way to fillet crappies or other panfish?

Recommended Posts

I have tried(with little luck)many times to fillet a panfish right. But every time it seems that i end up wasting more meat than i should. What i do is:

scale them, cut off the heads, open the stomach area, clean them out, cut off all remaining fins and the tail. Now this works alright but it leaves way to many bones. Anyone at all have a better way to fillet panfish? Any help would be just great!

Born2fish, If no one can help you e-mail me at PWaldow123@aol.com and I will try to put something together for you, a diagram or something maybe. Can't figure out how to explain to you in words but it is very quick and easy once you have it down.

Born2fish. I did a search on my favorite search engine www.dogpile.com Typed in fish filleting and got a number of good sites on the net with tutorials on the subject. They should help. But there's nothing like having someone with experience showing you how. Once you get the hang of it there's nothing to it. I do know the smaller the pan fish the harder it is to fillet. Try it on some 7+" gills to make it easier. With blue gills I usually scale them they fillet them, the skin on a gill is very tasty.

Good fishing.

If you fry them whole, then pull the dorsel fin off. Take your thumbs, or fork, where the fin was and you can lay back both sides clean and no bones.
