      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 .

Walleye Photos

Recommended Posts

Here goes on some walleye photos for Boar for the 12 days of Christmas, feel free to add your own for him to enjoy.  I wlll start it out with a nice photo of a nice fish but not a monster.  I'm guessing about a 24 incher or a hair bigger.

30 years ago, opening day night.  30" and 30-1/2"  guess we kept em back then.  Slightly ashamed but I was 18 years old, great glasses and hat.  Skinny fish.

Nice little lake north of Duluth where I get a nice eye every time in the fall.

Same lake.  I put the big one back 31 inches and kept the other one.

I could only find the pic that I applied some graphic filters to for project I was working on - that's why it looks a little wonky. Caught at the cabin up on Fish Trap Lake. I'm getting to be a master at the "Hold-out" technique :) .  But it was a good-sized eye. I can only hope this thread results in some good Walleye recipes.IMG_20120928_212800.thumb.jpg.6e8dada98d

my favorite way to cook walleyes is to leave the skin on smear butter over the fillet. and seasonings of your choice. put in a grill. takes maybe 1/2 hour to get done depending on the size. I also add the minced onions. bout 5 minutes before done sprinkle lemon juice over the fillet. that skin can be cooked to a crisp and the meat is still oh so good.

Wait What! :crazy:     

That is one true northern Gal there with no shoes or socks on in an Ice house. I'm just to sensitive of a guy I guess, but my tootsies never see the light of day during the winter inside or out! :blush:

I think that fish was the 29" in the photo with the guy in the orange.  We let it go and it wasn't belly up but was just sitting on the surface and that young dog jumped off the front of the boat and did his job.  We let it go again and it swam to the bottom.  I had a dog years ago grab them out of the livewell when we left it open but an open water retrieve was a new one.

I tried to post this and the above stuff from Boar appeared and I don't know why.  Although that is a great looking "Rattle Reel" in your fish house Boar.   ;)  Here is a pic of me by my house on the Rainy a couple of years ago.

The ol' sideways shot again. Sorry, Big Dave fixes these for me sometimes.

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
