      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 .

Fish Cleaning Table

Recommended Posts

Was talking to some folks about the table I use for cleaning fish. It's made from an ironing board with formica on top. Has a tail clip to hold the fish and has a handle that pulls out to put your bucket on. Works slicker than a snot rocket.

How well does the clip work? I always just laid down a palm on the head but that sounds alot easier.

Hey Sandmannd,

Where did you find a fish clip like that? I have board that I could attach one of those to.

They had them at Cabelas the other day when I was in there right next to the line spooling station

Yea, Cabelas has them. I think I got that one online somewhere.

Thanks guys, it's the handiest thing ever. If I have a few to clean I put it up all the way. But if I got a ton of pannies, I put it down so I can sit by it.

This wouldn't work for me. I'm left handed.

Stand on the other side of the table.

My wife sure is going to be upset about her ironing board, Sandmand, but she'll get over it. That is one great idea.

Good idea Sand.

I think this would work for ironing cloths also. I always have the hold down one end when pulling the iron down. The clip would do that for me grin

I took the fish clip off an old fillet board (the kind they sell at Cabellas and Gander) and attached it to a big piece of plywood. I have more space. The thing that I like about the plywood versus a smooth piece of formica is that the fish doesn't slide around on the wood. Then again, you get more fish scales and blood hanging around even after you hose it off...so it comes down to personal preference.

I've got a little folding camping table, but looking at cutting boards. The cutting boards seems to be the expensive part to me.

Go to garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I got my for $3. Whole thing was under $20 for me.

That's one slick table My only question is do you pinch the tail or the head?

I actually don't pinch either. Very rarely do I use the clip. If I do, I usually pinch the head.

    • Yeah, it's not BigDave for nothing there fella!
    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
