      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 .

Sheephead

Recommended Posts

Chef Prudhommes Redfish Magic Seasoning. Follow the directions for balckening. They are kissing cousins to salt water Redfish which is highly sought after table fare.

I've made it several times and it usually goes as fast if not faster than the deep fried battered crappie and walleye. Make sure to fillet out the dark lateral line and belly meat. I keep the back and tail portion.

Good Luck!

They are VERY edible. In fact it was one of the American Indians favorites. Archeologist's routinely look for Sheephead bones when the discover the remains of an Indian encampment in order to determine the population Native American population that might have lived there.

I have never tried Sheephead, however I remember reading in an old Archeological magazine how the Native American's would gut the fish and scale them. They wrap them in wet leaves and bury the leaves in the coals of their fires. The fish would steam in the wet leaves and the people would then eat the steamed fish.

I suspect someone with the right spices and things could modify their recipe into a very tasty dish. Next time I catch one I will try it. We talked about this in the St. Croix forum not long ago.

Interesting, I always just thought of them about equally as a carp.

Yep, that's what they used to think of salt water drum, until a famous chef in New Oleans started making it - then they almost destroyed the fishery!

Chef Prudhomme I do believe, and as stated sheepshead (fresh water drum) and Redfish (salt water drum) are kissing cousins...

Try it! You'll like it!

Good Luck!

I am glad you mentioned Carp!!!!! Just for the record everyone, CARP are the number 1 game fish in the whole flaming world! (Let me say that again for those of you who are chocking on ther beer right now. CARP ARE THE NUMBER 1 GAME FISH IN THE WHOLE FLAMING WORLD!!!!)

Properly prepared they are as delicious as Cod fish. In fact, you will find Carp on the menus of some of the world finest restaurants, especially in Europe and Asia.
