      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 .

I shouldn't count my chickens before they hatch but I'm in a good area for tullibees, besides smoking them I hear people bake them, and even pickle them. Anyone have any experience?

No experience, but they are herring (lake herring) and closely related to whitefish which are sometimes in the same lakes so they should work.  Sounds like a fun thing to try.   

 

I've eaten whitefish in restaurants and it was good.

I watched a video on some dudes catching Tullies on Winnie and the guy said, "Scale them, cut the heads off, gut them, and then stuff them with your favorite poultry stuffing and bake them"... That was the recipe, lol.

I'll pass on that recipe. Tullies have a distinct flavor and tullies flavored stuffing..... No thanks!

For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up.

I had these dang things bugging me last weekend. They almost look like Lakers on the flasher streaking up and down. I gave up smoking the things because they are way to boney to pick through if you ask me! :tired:

They might be ok pickled.  I don't care for them smoked, or any other way.

 

Whitefish, on the other hand, have a good flavor, and are excellent smoked.

i always thought they were about identical smoked :) 

 

The flesh in tullibee is soft and mushy and has a stronger taste than whitefish.  The flesh in whitefish is firm and flaky like walleye.

 

Might be somewhat dependent on the water they come out of - not sure about that, but that has been my experience.

It's been alot of years since I had smoked tullies, since the days of the leech lake blood bath days. Wouldn't mind getting a few again but my ice season is pretty much done. Minor back surgery Feb 1.

There's a guy in Bena or Ball Club who makes the best smoked whitefish on the planet, and sells them out of a roadside stand.  Jim Uran probably knows about this...

interesting. whitefish are normally a bit bigger. I have had them in the smoker at the same time and love them both. I fillet the fish and smoke with the skin on. maybe why they taste the same?   love them :)

    • Here are a few pictures of the little peanut aka TazMania.    I got waaay behind on introducing him to birds and with work and the weather it was a slow start but once I finally got him on birds he really took off. He has an incredible nose and he is close working which for me and my family a$$ is a benefit. I was worried about going away from Springer's but  I am not disappointed and love the cocker. 
    • Diced spam fried up then add the eggs and scramble up is a fish house morning favorite for us.
    • First batch done, hopefully these will pair well with a cold beverage and football! Skol!    Last weekends football fare, beef burnt ends, lasted about 15 min with my neighbors. I'm going to try it with pork shoulders this weekend. I'll grill up the chunks during pregame tomorrow. Skol!
    •     Yah, then wash it down with a High Life
    • That's a cute little carpet muncher. 
    • There is no reason to get on the roof! For the ice and snow get a roof rake, keep problem areas free of both. For leaves and pine needles get gutter helmet. But stay off roof! One fall could change more then a stinky house.
    • I would be perfectly fine with that. Heck, it's no different from not even winning your conference and getting in the final 4 only to have the refs miss obvious holding penalties so you can have a winning TD pass. I'll take that any day
    • Only missing the toast, hot sauce and ketchup! Good stuff Manerd!
    • If you eat fried spam on wonder bread with velveeta cheese........ You might be a redneck.   
    • I was just looking at the chamber type vacuum baggers, and in the comments it was pointed out that the bags for the more expensive chamber sealers are much cheaper than for the "foodsaver" type sealers.   So if you do a lot of vacuum bagging, the chamber type might be worth considering.
