      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 .

Looking for Walleye on the grill recipe

Recommended Posts

A friend is getting married with a very small ceremony and I'm the cookie amoung other things. We are all eating picnic style(burgers, brats, etc) except the minister who wants walleye.

Anybody got any suggestions for walleye on the grill, it has no skin on so it would probably be done in foil.

Any help would be appreciated.

Coat tinfoil with butter and olive oil. Season fillet with Salt, Pepper and Old Bay. Put a couple pats of butter on top and close tinfoil. Cook on medium heat about 5 to 7 minutes. Open the foil the last minute to let out steam and brown the fillet.

I saw one the other day that was with salmon, but was thinking walleye would be just fine. Took a filet, brushed with butter and coated with some cajun seasonings and put in (on)foil. On top of the walleye, prior to sealing the foil, he put some uncooked crab meat, then finished it off with shrimp on top of the crab. More butter on top of the shrimp, and crab I believe plus more cajun seasoning. Finished sealing the foil and threw on the grill. Three or so minutes a side??? Looked pretty tasty.

Walleye in foil on the grill is easy, fast, and healthy. You can make it as simple as butter and seasoning salt.

Get a basket like you'd use to grill and flip 9 hamburgers at once. Take walleye fillets and brush with melted butter and sprinkle with Cajun seasoning (just a little). Place on grill flip cage with fillets once grill other side and serve.

I use jerkbait's method very often a couple of things I would add would be a couple of slice's of lemon and some Italain Dressing.

You can add about any thing you like one of my kids likes to put orange slices on hers.

The flip cage is nice because it'll make it quicker to flip them over but it isn't necessary.

Season the fillets as desired (cajun, season salt, garlic powder, onion powder, dried lemon, salt, pepper, whatever) and lay them directly on the hot grill for about a minute per side or until done.

If you use the tinfoil method and add some butter on top (to your liking), just about any spice will taste good. Lowry's Seasoned Salt is always good, cajun seasonings, lemon pepper, dill, etc. The spice combinations are endless. The best thing to do is try putting your favorite spice on there and try it a few times before hand.

lay down lemon slices 1/4" thick enough to hold the fillet off the grill and close the lid and let it cook for 7-10 min on med, if you like lemon on your fish....yummy

My vote goes to just taking a cake pan and put bunch of butter in the bottom and throw the walleyes in there with some salt, pepper, maybe a little garlic and cook it for about 5-8 mins till its done and then get the heck out of the way! The people will be swarming the grill like buzzards!! No need to make it complicated with grilled walleye, the seasonings just cover the already delicious treat!!! Have Fun!

Lately when I've cooked fish on the grill, I've been making blackened walleye/crappie/bluegills/whatever. It's pretty easy, and really good (but a bit on the spicy side). You crank the grill to it's highest setting, put a cast iron skillet on the grates, close the lid, and let the skillet get very hot. DO NOT add butter or oil to the pan. While the skillet is warming up, coat the fillet in butter, then coat with blackened fish seasoning. I use Zataran's brand, but I'm sure others would work. After the skillet is good and hot, add the fillets to the pan, cook for 1-2 minutes (depending on thickness), flip, cook for another 1-2 minutes, and remove.

Do not try cooking this on your stovetop in the house, the smoke will be unbearable.

I've had really good luck using grill planks, just like you would to make salmon or trout. Last time I salt and peppered both sides of the fillets, made a mustard vinagrette (juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 tbls dijon mustard, 1 tsp chopped fresh tarragon and 2-3 tbls EV olive oil) and spooned it on top while laying on alder wood planks. Grill indirectly for about 10-15 minutes with the lid on and you're good to go.

For just a slight version of some methods described above, I take tin foil, lay down the fillets 1/2 thick (any fish will do), season them with salt and lemon pepper seasoning, add some lemon slices (thin), add some onion slices (thin) and add either a partial can of drained petite diced tomatoes (I prefer the Red Gold mix of tomatoes, onion and olive oil) or add a partial jar of your favorite salsa mix. Seal up good with multiple layers of tin foil (so nothing leaks) and grill each side (works for shore lunches over an open fire) for approx 7 minutes. Open up, use a spatula to dish out on a plate and garnish the mix with some Franks Red Hot Sauce and/or tarter sauce. Ohhhh Boy.

    • I saw on a show about a guy living on a point on a lake that had many houses on poles in the water about 20ft from shore. Maybe about 3ft above the water. All the houses were full, It was cool to watch. Easier to maintain at that height, waist deep in water. 
    • I know folks who clean out the martin house's every year.....
    • I rinsed them and put them out whole.
    • Well, fellas,  lemme tell ya:  I've had one terrific life and done more things than you'd probably believe.  In fact I told my wife one evening shortly after we had moved to the lower 48, "I think you had best cool it with some of your recollections of our time and adventures in the North because I get the feeling most people won't believe you anyway. And to this day we don't shoot off our mouth too much just for that reason. EVERYBODY should be as lucky as I have been!!  
    • Sounds like there will be 17 guns offered!! Come  on the odds of winning a gun are great
    • I will go to small mom and pop bait shops I know pay more for some jugs but I love the service 
    •   Ufatz, not doubting a word you have to say, you are quite the colorful creator. The stories you have told over the years of trapping in the Yukon Territory. Living in a log cabin, driving old trucks with right and left hand lug nuts and fighting off Big Foot have been interesting to listen to.  To say the least. And now, you live in MN and drive a Mercedes Benz!  Hat's off to you're life sir.
    • Just make a point of telling the shop people to use a torque wrench and then tell them the value you want on your vehicle,  which you will have gotten from the manual. My Benz's have aluminum wheels for the most part and you can distort and ruin one it a Millenial Ape gets at them with a giant super powered wham-bam air powered wrench. I've found too many that know drugs,  not lugs.
    • Hey 3rd in the central and winning games on the road, we are certainly trending in the right direction at the right time of year. After some rocky starts to their careers Zucker and Granlund have really turned into some amazing players, like anyone they go hot and cold but I can't really say enough good things about them. Along with Staal they have really carried our offence this year. Hopefully in the next 20 games we can get some other guys going. Coyle can give us more, Nino looks a little off but it sounds like he is still fighting that ankle injury. Parise looks like his old self more and more but just not converting like he use to, hopefully that changes. I was against making a deadline move earlier in the year but if we keep this pace up we really could use another top9 winger, Ennis just isn't cutting it. Absolutely do not want to spend a 1st rounder on anyone at this point but if they can pick up someone decent on the cheap it might be worth it. We still have the majority of the team that was 2nd in the west last year and if they can play up a little closer to their potential there is not reason we can't make some noise in the playoffs in some kind of underdog fashion.
    • I went to the store in Woodbury a few times for reloading supplies and thought it was a good store. I like that format better than the upscale Cabela's model.
