      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 .

Try the smoked deviled eggs!! They are a rave at all the gatherings. Bacon wrapped smoked prawns are also a winner. Smoked jalapeno poppers?

They are not great ideas but we will sit outside and enjoy a few adult drinks and fire up the deep fryer. The menu will be home made potato chips, Buffalo wings and Hot BBQ sauce wings,cheese sticks, deep fried mushrooms,deep fried shrimp.Friday night is the bad food night the rest of the time we try to eat a little better by mixing in a few veggies and only deep fry fish for Tacos on Sunday night.

This shrimp recipe doesn't have cheese but its good and simple.

Take a bag of medium to large precooked cocktail shrimp. Remove any remaining tail/shell. In a ziplock bag put some hot Sirachi sauce. Enough to cover the shrimp. Let sit for a few minutes.

Take one package of pre-cooked bacon and cut each piece in half. Remove the shrimp from th Sirachi sauce and wrap it with the bacon and pin it with a toothpick. Place shrimp on a broiler pan. Cover until you are ready to eat.

Broil the shrimp/bacon combo until the shrimp and bacon are heated all the way through. It won't take long. Cooking time varies by the size of the shrimp.

Bacon wrapped shrimp is always a hit. I season the shrimp with a seafood shake, wrap with bacon, skewer and then on the grill they go (Traeger Wood Pellet Grill is my grill of choice). After shrimp and bacon are grilled I back the temp down and brush on b-b-q sauce and let grill another 5 to 10 minutes depending on temp. Takes some time for prep with wrapping a few bags of shrimp but it is worth it.

Fresh jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and small shrimp. Wrap in bacon, put a tooth pick in it and fry in a pan. They are sooooooo good!

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
