      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 .

Salmon question

Recommended Posts

I bought some wild salmon with skin on. It is currently frozen. What would you all recommend as a way to prepare it? Should I thaw it first?

I thought about grilling it in a foil packet with seasonings, etc, so any suggestions would be good there as well.

Thanks!

I have cooked them on the top shelf thawed out with skin side on the grates. I like a little brown sugar on them. Google salmon recipes and choose some different ingredients for the rubs.

This is my absolute favorite way but you will need a ceder plank or a ceder shake that is untreated.

Spray the ceder shake with oil or rub with olive oil and then sprinkle Cajun spice all over it( don't worry it will not heat it up )lay the fillet without skin down and oil and sprinkle again with spice. Now you need the zest of one lemon and lime and a equal amount of fresh grated ginger, mix all of it up and cover the top of the fillet and grill on high for about 20 min. or till the fillet can flake.

Sauce

Mix up 1/2 cup soy sauce and 1/2 cup sesame oil and 2 or 3 fresh green onions chopped up into small pieces and mix up.

Scrap off the zest mix and cut up a portion and spoon on the sauce with the onions on top and you are ready to eat.

I would thaw it first. Then at least a 1/2 hour (I have done this for up to 3 hours) before grilling drizzle a little olive oil over it, sprinkle some garlic-garlic, Montreal steak seasoning and dill on it. When you are ready put it on the grill directly over the coals skin side down. Once it becomes a little firm I flip it over and sear the flesh. Depending on how hot your coals are and how thick the fillet is you may have to flip it back on the skin side to keep the flesh from burning before it is done.

Cedar plank on the grill is the absolute best way I have ever had salmon. Soak the plank in water for a couple hours first, pat dry, put olive oil on plank, fresh sliced lemons on the filet. Cook till done. Be ready with a squirt bottle to put out any flames that may come from the plank burning.

I have used them more then once but I buy the untreated shakes at Menards and I think a third of a square was $13.00 and that is pretty much a lifetime supply plus you can give some to friends. The planks they sell just for salmon I feel are just too expensive but I am sure you would get a lot of use out of them as long as you soaked them. The shakes that I use I never soak just slap on the olive oil. I gave the recipe to my brother in law parents and they felt like it the first time that they ever cooked something at home that was almost a gourmet type meal and they are in there 60s. I made no special adjustments just preheat in high and keep it on high.

Thanks for the info.

I just found a recipe in our local paper for grilling salmon. It calls for a brown sugar and soy sauce based glaze.

Looks like a trip to Menards is in order. 3d-ClinOeilPouce.gif

When I have to use a gas grill, the grill is so close to the heat that if the planks are not soaked good, they are always on fire.

    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.
