      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 .

Playoff Caviar

Recommended Posts

Ok, I'm gonna toot my own horn. You've heard of Texas caviar, I assume....well, we had a big contest with a bunch of guys, including their wives and friends, five years ago, as to who could make the best "caviar". It was a big contest, and after a lot of judging and recipes, the 2 finalists were selected...me and my buddy's gourmet-cooking wife. I won. She was pissed. Hey, when yer good, yer good. It took me like 2 weeks and 5 batches to get it just right. So, as a consolation, she got to name it...and she did admit she loved it. So, here's my "Minnesota Caviar"...and she loves calling me by that name, cuz I'm an old rocker. Whatever revs yer blower........:grin:

 

Markie  Mark’s Minnesota Caviar

1 can blackeyed peas, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
½ can yellow corn (or shoepeg) drained
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 large red pepper, chopped
1 large purple onion, chopped
1 Jalepeno, seeded and chopped fine
1 10 oz can of Rotel Tomato’s with Chiles, drained
Combine veggies in large bowl, pour ½ to ¾ cup of light oil over veggies; stir. (Canola, Wesson, or Extra Virgin Olive)

Mix:
½ cup red wine vinegar
½ cup white vinegar
½ cup sugar; combine all 3 and heat until sugar dissolves, cool.
Add to vinegar mix:
½ tsp SMOKED CHIPOTLE chile pepper powder (Made by Mccormick Spices)
1 tsp salt
¾ tsp Cumin
½ tsp Cilantro
½ tsp Garlic Powder
½ tsp  fresh cracked black pepper
1 tsp green tabasco sauce

Pour Vinegar mix over veggies, stir, and refrigerate 6-8 hours.
Enjoy! (With Tostito’s Scoops)

Eat within two days, though.

Ya, it gets kinda sogged out, rh. Veggies soften too much. It does need to sit in the fridge overnite before ya eat it, though...that's a must. I really would be honored if you'd make it, and tell us what ya think. it IS a pain to make, but if ya line everything up like I do, and proceed down the line, it isn't too bad. It's worth it. Lotsa choppin', though.  I like to crank Segar or the Stones or Van Morrison and have it. I find it relaxing. Give it a go!

Eeew, no that looks way to healthy for a Football game.:(  A game is the only time my wife lets me eat crapp because shes not watching it. So crapp I will eat!  :)

Maybe a can of Hormel chili on top would help crapp it up a bit? :P

Making it today.  I was going to make it exactly the way it is but my wife can't stand green pepper raw so I'll just put in another red pepper or orange pepper.  Otherwise it is what it is.  I'll have it for the game tomorrow.  good luck.

awesome!  May have to make some home made chips.

Cut three at a time with scissors in pie shape.  Throw a few at a time in oil, not touching, flip after about 30 seconds.  Little salt and whamo!

    • I will say having the freespool feature when your on top of a school a perch moving through has put more fish in the bucket for me. Way quicker than hand lining a spinning reel. Once you get the freespool dialed in and running smooth,  you  can get your bait right back in front of the fish effortlessly. It makes a world of difference when your in a hurry. I run and gun on the ice and most lakes and sloughs here in SD are not that deep so works great for me.
    • I live right outside of Moorhead and see a few in the winter now days. About 8 yrs ago they moved into the shelterbelt around our place and there were about 50. It was nice to see them. I grew up in Harvey N.D. and we would go out and shoot a pickup box full in a night. That 250 - 300 jacks in a night. We would sell them to a guy that had a Mink and Fox ranch and get 50 cents each. The amount of jacks we would see in a night would be in the 1000's.   I think all the chemicals and pesticides are killing them off. We dont see the Meadow Larks like we use to either.
    • They work great on a super limp rod in 10 ft or so for tiny jigs on panfish, eliminating spin. Worthless after that. For this purpose expensive ones are a waste. 
    • I actually have one but it is up north and I won't be in a position to get it until next spring.   So PM me if you still need it then and you can have it.   Been a few years since I used it, but it worked when I stashed it in the attic.   They are not too hard to take apart and clean, and that might help.  Let me know in May if you still are in need.  
    • Another solution is to get Handheld radios (FRS/GMRS) especially if there's weak cell signal.
    • I have a Minnkota 12V bow mount trolling motor but need a foot pedal as mine isn't reliable and they discontinued the product.  The connection of the cord is a little over an inch and oval in shape.  Thank you!
    • The wife and I have different tastes so I usually use an off the shelf prime rib rub and finish up with coarse ground salt and pepper. There are lots of great rub recipes out on the net depending on your taste and company
    • Good catch of the actions and reactions of the walleyes down there.
    • Nice catch for your little boy!
