      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 .

Bluegill fillets

Recommended Posts

Other than deep frying, pan frying or microwaving, are there any other ways to utilize bluegill fillets.? If so, please share how.

I have read over the years about soups, but I think they were using larger game fish.

Thanks

I like to cook them on my gas grill. Melt some butter with some Real Lemon, put a big piece of tin foil on the top rack, fold up the edges a bit so it holds the liquids, throw the fillets on, brush then with the butter mixture, cook until flaky, turning once. Season with your favorate seasoning after the turn. Tasty and easy cleanup. Cook lots because quite a few don't make it to the platter. I also like to leave the skin on one side of the fillet, I scale them and then fillet them, it holds them together.

My kid loves this, she calls it cheesy fish. Just lay the fillets on a cookie sheet and then salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. I just like salt and then grill or salt and then bake. Really brings out the flavor of the fish.

Dump a few fillets at a time into a pot of boiling water - if you put a whole bunch at a time they stick together - cook for three minutes, maybe four. Spread out on paper towels and let cool - when cool, season & dip in cocktail sauce - eat like shrimp, cold. Very, very good. Lemon on top is very good as well - even dip in melted garlic butter...

I use a glass casserol dish uncovered.

Make layers of sliced Onions sliced potatoes and fish fillets

I salt and pepper each layer and drizzle with some melted butter when the dish is full (about 3 layers of each).

Mix about 1/2 cup of melted butter with about a half cup of Italian bread crumbs and spread over the top.

Bake at 350 for about an hour or until potatoes ar soft.
