      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 .

Alaskan halibut and salmon dinner

Recommended Posts

Just returned from a nice dinner party featuring a grilled Alaskan halibut and salmon dinner. Two of my fishing buds took their 2 oldest boys on a trip of a lifetime to Alaska and shared their reward with us.

What a meal! Nice salads, great grilled fish and wonderful company. To make it even nicer it was outdoors on this beautiful evening that has the promise of fall in the air.

Why is it that food always tastes better outdoors?

My parents just moved up to anchorage this summer, and they repayed me helping them move boxes for two weeks by taking me out fishing!

I have to say, Alaska is one of those truly incredible places. And oh MAN what incredible fishing!

Just got back from 10 days spread out between Homer, Seward, Soldotna and the last night in Anchorage before flying out. 1st time up there and all I can say is...Well words can't describe it. Pounded Silver's and Pink's on the Kenai River (only kept the silvers), then Silver's on a fly out then Halibut. My wife and I brought back close to 50lbs of fish each. Now to study up on some Halibut/Salmon recipe's.

Anyway you cook Halibut is a treat. Try the cedar plank trick for salmon mmmmmm.

Another simple trick for salmon on the grill is mix equal parts mustard and mayo and spread liberally on each side of fillet. Doesn't impart any taste, but keeps it from sticking to the grill. Put some fresh lemon slices on those bad boys and dig in!

I just got back from the Kenia on Saturday night. It was my 3rd trip in as many years. Spent time fishing halibut out of Seward and Ninilchek. Slammed pinks and Silvers (coho) on the lower Kenia near Soldotna. Fish on cast after cast. We had some silvers in the 12 to 15 pound class. Pounded Reds (sockeye salmon) up on the middle Kenia and Russian River. I brought back about 70 pounds of fish. There are lots of people who have Minnesota roots that live up there. I also ran into several people from the Duluth/Iron Range area who were slammin the fish.

Try frying up some halibut in 1 inch squares and make some fish tacos. MMMMMMMMMM Good.

Two cloves of Garlic, Minced

One small onion, minced

1/3 cup Apple juice

Mix the above together and marinate the Salmon with it for a couple hours. Either cook it on the grill or broil in the oven skin side down. It is fabulas
