      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 .

Good night to grill - venison backstrap

Recommended Posts

It was a prefect night to fire up the grill last night so I pulled out a pack of venison backstrap and prepared them one of my favorite ways.

I started out by cutting them into medallions about 2 inches thick, maybe a little less.  Then they got wrapped in Nueske's apple wood smoked bacon.  Then they spent the afternoon marinading in a mix of bbq sauce (sweet baby rays) and apple cider.  I just eyeball the ratios, I leave the marinade so the bbq sauce is thinned down but still thick enough you can paint it on the medallions without it all running off.  I let it sit in the fridge for the bulk of the day while I was out doing yard work and then it gets grilled up.  I shoot for about medium at most on these although with the marinade and the bacon helping keep things tender and moist you've got a little wiggle room.  I did one or two more well done for one person and they were still very tender and moist even though there was no pink at all.  I didn't take an after photo as I was in to big of a rush to start eating but here are a couple prep shots.

Nice!  I have a backstrap portion about 10" long in a Lowry's Smokehouse marinade right now.  I will also wrap in bacon and throw on the grill tonight.

I'll try to get photos, but they always seem to get drool on them when grilling venison :)

I use this marinade for all my venison then to the grill for about 4 minutes per side 150 degrees is a little to high for me I shoot for 140 and it ends up at about 145 after resting.

Ingredients
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried, minced garlic
3 dashes hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco(R)), or to
taste
2 (4 ounce) venison steaks
Directions
Whisk Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, onion, red pepper flakes, dry mustard, salt, thyme,
black pepper, garlic, and hot pepper sauce together in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add
venison steaks, coat with the marinade, squeeze to remove excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the
refrigerator at least 1 hour.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
Remove venison from the marinade and shake o㉰ excess. Discard remaining marinade.
Cook the steaks until they are firm, hot in the center, and just turning from pink to grey, about 5 minutes
per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 150 degrees F (65 degrees C)

    • When doing a Repo it's best to have some good pictures for them to try and copy. Part of the issue is they make a lot of their fish off molds they have made over the years of different size fish.  Not sure if they have to make a new mold if the cost will be more? That is why I have never had one done of this 36" inch Laker I got and released a few years ago. It was really long but thin and all the molds the two company's I talked to had were big bellied Laker from like Canada that didn't look anything like it. So I just didn't want to spend about $5-6 bills for a fish that didn't look much like the one I caught.  
    •   Thank you sir, I will check them out.   Phone pic of a disposable camera pic. Wish I would have got a little more detail. At sunset, lighting was bad.   Oct 21st bass. Big mouth and head, belly was not oversized, but it was a tall fish all the way back. No weight, but I am guessing it cracked 7 lbs.   I remember reading a couple years later after Mark Raveling broke the state record, and he said a 7 lb bass in MN is a once in a lifetime fish.   I now tend to agree with him.      
    • I just had to wiggle mine back and forth. The tolerances are pretty tight so it is not hard to bind it up. You should not have to use much force at all. I agree the design is so stupid and high maintenance. My next one will probably be with a torsion axle. Did you buy this from a dealer? 
    • I don't know anything about these but if you can put some heat to it , it might help
    • Not sure how the hell you guys “just slide it off!” It took me a good hour just to take off the metal retaining ring, this darn house is only 3 years old!! But after taking the ring off the axle doesn’t budge at all, tried jacking it up with a floor jack and it just flexes the stub it rests on. Pulling feels like trying to pull a 75 year old oak tree out of its roots; I soaked it with penetrating oil before calling it quits tonight; my last resort now is itll break and I’ll get some sort of wiggle room with the axle otherwise I put everything back together, pump it with grease and jack it up and down until it gets free?   Otherwise I’m going to have to bring it in and there’s another $200   i told the wife I’m ready to sell this PITA after only having 3 weeks with it; the axle design is the worst, why would they expose everything to the salt? Frustrated as you can tell...
