      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 .

Man, I love braunschweiger. It's been a while.

Went over to fuji ya friday for dinner with the ladyfriend. Here's some Chilean Uni, Bigeye Tuna, and a nice black ale from Japan (asahi kuronama).

The uni was really interesting. Incredible flavor... really, really horrible texture.

Asahi Extra Dry is a great beer if you can find it in the states. It's a nice change of pace from the carbonated high fructose corn syrup we call beer here.

With all of the foods I've eaten in Asia, the only ones that really got to me were the ones with odd textures. For the most part, everything tastes really good, it's the texture that can turn you off in a second.

I agree completely. I think the "problem" I had with the uni was I kept thinking "what does this texture remind me of," instead of thinking "this is sea urchin. It's tasty." and left it at that smile It really was delicious. Just needed to take it in smaller bites or the texture would get to me.

We have a groupon to use there so I'll be tryin it again before too long. I'll see if they have the Asahi extra dry, thanks for the heads up!

I rub them with my rib rub the night before, and wrap tightly in plastic wrap in 'fridge overnite. Build up a good head of smoke from the apple wood chunks, and toss 'em on. Maintain it at about 250*,according to the Weber T'mometer. Cook on indirect flame for first 45 mns or so, flipping twice, and spraying with concentrated apple juice, then brush with the BBQ sauce for last half hour. Last 5 minutes crank burner under ribs up to get a bit of blackening, which I really like. Pull at 150* degs internal or so, tent in foil and let rest. If the ribs have been in my freezer for a long time, I soak them in really concentrated apple juice overnite, them follow same steps.

So about a 45 minute shot and then another half hour with sauce on it?

Ya, about that, depending on how thick I cut 'em, and how much bone is in each one. Right before I brush the sauce on, I flip 'em over a couple times quick to get any liquid/grease of, or the BBQ sauce will "slide around' andnot "set". 20 -30 mns is about right for the sauce to glaze up.

I'm sure this has been done a few million times over. Classic, Wonder Bread and Spam.  Dressed up with provolone, candied jalapeños, and a hot sauce mayo. Wash it down with some spicy V8 and the 2% stuff.

I handle my heat pretty well and those jalapeños aren't that bad at all. They're the Nelson Bros. brand and I would highly recommend them if you like sweet pickles. Their pickled quail eggs are super good too.

 

Pretty sure I dipped my sandwich in that V8 once or twice. Edited by DrJuice1980

    • I've always been partial to the fold down couch in the back but I'd want to have storage under it and a fold down bunk above it. One thing to keep in mind is the heater.  I know you said the current heater stays for this season and maybe next but if you're doing work on the layout now you should probably plan for the new heater now even if its not going in for a year or two.  You'd hate to do all this work adjusting the layout only to find out you should have done something differently to accommodate the new heater. 
    • If mine,  I would add those drop down bunks and some pedestal boat seats.  With a smaller house like that I would want as much open area as possible.  I think those big couch/sofas take too much room.  You can always drop the bunk and take a snooze without taking up floor fishing space.  Just some thoughts.......
    • I tried a glass of a buddy's Templeton Rye last night and was impressed. I'm not big of Rye's but this one was very smooth. I can't say I'd ever buy a bottle but someone else's booze is always up near the top of the list of my favorites. I still prefer the $15 Trader Joe's bourbon though. 
    • I didn't figure anyone at cabelas would be any help. I have scoured the gun and haven't ever been able to find any markings of any kind. I forgot to mention in the previous post that it's a 16 gauge.  If nothing else, it'll look cool hanging over my basement bar. 
    • Ha I remember showing ya a thing or 2!!! Not sure where your son got his fishin prowess from though! Yea well!! oh I changed my poopy pants!
    • I can't see the pics?
    • You might be better off trying to do some research on your own on the old shotgun. I think it would be a waste of time taking it to Cabela's since most of the folks  who work there now think  any gun made before 1970 is an antique. The gun surely is made in Europe and might have originated in one of the English or Belgian or even German "guild" shops, little outfits that cranked out inexpensive guns that did not even bear maker's names since they were made by a "bunch" of guys. Your best bet would be to trace or photograph the proof marks and go from there.  That is,  I'm assuming it has proof marks :).
    • For an exciting adventure in shooting grab an old "trapdoor" Springfield and rattle off a few rounds of 45-70 or 45-90.  If you're of skinny build and little weight it'll give you a THUMP you'll remember!   Perfect deer cartridge for MN though since that big ol' bullet will go churning through the brush like a D-8 Cat until it hit's it's target. Have been around the old '94 30-30 since way back when and while it is handy it is not that accurate and lacks the knock-down power of many, many of today's rounds. But if you just have to have one as I always say, it''s your money. Keep in mind you can buy the .35 Remington in a pump action,   which a lot of MN duck hunters find easy to use come deer season.
    • I have an old Damascus barreled shotgun that was passed on to me by my grandpa. The story I have always heard and been told is that it was brought over from Denmark by my great grandfather in 1915. It has no markings indicating where it was made or anything else that I could use to figure out some history on the gun. It is a pin fire and has a stag carved into the underside of the stock. Anyone have any ideas on where I could find any info on this? I had thought about bringing it to Cabelas and see if they knew anything about it. I'm not concerned about the value. I'd just like to know a little more about it or even get pointed in the right direction. 
    • I like the .30-.30 because of availability and affordability of the ammo but I think the .35 Remington may be a better overall round. I don't know anything about the .45-70 Gov. though.
