      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 .

quick and easy ice house foods.

Recommended Posts

my wife like to premake stuff, freeze it and put it in the oven while fishing. I like to make stuff, i bring a grill, ect.. but with no running water, it makes any kinda clean up a pain. one of my fun faves is omlete in a bag, add your likes into a freezer bag and dipp into a simmer boil till done and enjoy. you guys have any neat and nifty icehouse dishes..

One of my favorites is to do a small venison roast, couple onions, potatoes, carrots right on the stove top in a big fry pan with a tight fitting lid. Have the vegies cut up before hand and in a ziplock, takes less than five minutes to throw the roast in, dump the vegies around it, add some water too, and either salt and pepper or an onion soup mix. Cook about an hour, add more liquid if necessary, and you have a meat and potato supper. I like to do plenty of potatoes and the leftovers get a few eggs tossed over them the next morning, in the same pan.  Quick, simple, and good.  Don't overcook your venison!!

Another quick and easy that I'll do for an evening fishing expedition is venison ring sausage, cut in 2-3 inch chunks, then split and casing peeled off, in a ziplock bag. Throw in frying pan, add a little water, supper is ready in 10-15 minutes. Couple slices of bread in a bag, you have venison sausage sandwiches and beer for supper. If you really want to get fancy you can butter the bread beforehand!!! :)

 

As you can see, I like your 'quick and easy foods' that was in the post heading!!!

Since I mainly fish on a one day at a time trip I also stick to easy meals.  For me it's home smoked sausage on a bun topped with my German kraut and bacon or sometimes just ketchup and mustard.  Take my Colman stove along, pot, and some water and I'm in buisness.  good luck.

Since I'm pretty much a run and gun sled and porty guy. I try to find foods that are on the go and will mix well with fish smell and slime on my hands.  Smoked fish, jerky, cheese sticks, stuff like that works out well most of the time! :P

Ice fishing usually comes along just in-time to eat some of that great venison from the year's hunt.  I usually just bring a medium saucepan, scoop up some snow (not the yellow stuff) and melt it down. Then boil the sausage, throw it on a cheap bun with some mustard.  Kind of like plain old hot dog at a baseball game, there's something about ice fishing that makes simple and basic taste better.

Been pretty sick....flu turned into pneumonia. Finally went to Doc this am. Lotsa drugs and antibiotics are supposed to kick in in a few days. 

Did a solid for a guy that turned out to be big rep for Thermos Co. Sent me a huge box of every kind they make...I kid you not.  Ssshhh. Use the Thermos Food Jar for my soup. Love the built in storage and little spoon that clips in place.

Well, Del, you've done it again. :whistle: I know Smurfo, Boar's breath, and me, are made in the USA, and I bet right here in Minnysoda. Some of the best vacuum bottles are Nissan, made in Japan. Stanley, the last of the USA bottles, moved to China production in 2002. There, now that's all settled and out of the way. So, has was your meat from SL Foods? :P

I don't get pissy; I get even. There woulda been an ad in the the big three newspapers, with his phone number, saying six purebred black labs and six field trial setter pups, all free. Call after midnite only,and ask for Smurfy. First caller also gets a free Holland and Holland Royal double barrel shotgun". :/

Don't need no shotgun.  Meat was good, I would buy again when I am on that end of town.   Couldn't figure out smurf making vacuum bottles.  Didn't sound asian on here. 

I have some stanley and nissan bottles.  Both quarts and those cute skinny pints, so I didn't have to buy coffee out of the machine.  Haven't used them much recently.

Those old Stanley's got myself and co-workers thru many a 12 hr nite shift.....

Glad ya liked the meat. I made a meat loaf last week, and 1 lb was from another store, and the other lb from SL Foods, both were frozen 6 months ago. You  could really smell and see the difference, and in texture, too.
