      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 .

Beer Battered Walleye

Recommended Posts

Hey Lamb, Mix 1 or 2 eggs depebding on the amount of fish you are cooking, pour 1/2 a can of beer. Finish left over beer and open another beer. Mix the egg with the beer. Finish that beer and open another. I use 1/2 Shore Lunch and 1/2 cracker crumbs. Get those cracker crumbs as fine as you can. I use a rolling pin to get a small work out, and make that next beer taste that much better. You can any spices you want in the beer batter. Wash filets and lay on a paper towel. Have a beer. Take the fillet and dip in the egg/beer wash and then into the crumbs, coating both sides. Your oil should be heated to around 375 to 380. Cook about 5 minutes max a side or until nicely browned. Do not over cook them. If you are cooking walleyes, you can cut the fillets in half making it a little easier to handle. Have another beer and enjoy the fish.

G.C.

To try something different dip your fillet in the cracker crumb mixture first, then into the egg/beer wash and then back into the cracker crumb mixture and then into the pan.(double dipping is allowed here)

gringrin Then you must have followed the recipe to the letter to achieve that status. You then must have had a good time.

Ok so maybe just the 1 beer will work also, but the recipe is good.

as long as the beer wasnt bud lite! i usually dont do beer batter, its a waste of beer. all those types of fish batters ive had seem like they soak up to much grease, IMO.

Beer is Beer to me as I don't drink it. I haven't noticed that though Glenn, must be the Vodka. 1 of the keys is to keep your oil temp up. Too low oil temp and yes it would increase the soakage.(is that a word). Keep the oil hot. 375-380.

Take 1/2 box Shorelunch, 1/2 box Frying Magic and mix the two together. Add beer and stir thoroughly until the batter is the right thickness (you don't want it runny, but you also do not want it too thick. Batter should thoroughly coat the fillet and slowly drip down when picking the fillet up and holding. That's the right thickness). Make sure your oil is hot as others have stated. Fry until the fillet is golden brown, then flip until the other side is golden brown and it's done. These will brown up fairly quick, so do not over-cook. When they're a crispy, golden brown, flip. You can use any beer you want, I prefer a nice, cold bottle of GB Premium. Finish off the entree with some Busch's Baked beans (I like em cold) and some American fries and you'll have some good eats. Enjoy.

The reason I want to do beer battered is because the "old grouch" likes it. He is the kinda fish eating guy who needs it fried in batter with tons of tartar sauce to cover the flavor of the fish. Good grief!!!! I usually like mine sauteed in a little butter with just salt and maybe some lemon. Oh yeah, I like the Bushes grilling beans......yummo

have you ever tried leaving the skin on a walleye and grilling it? mmmmmmm! spread butter/margerine over fillet, seasonings you like fake onions put on grill medium heat about half hour, done. meat will seperate fron skin when done about 10 minutes before done pour lemon juice over.

The Recipe of Ones

1 cup flour

1 tbsp sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 egg

1 beer

You won't need the entire beer - you should have a slurp left for the cook.

Make sure the oil is hot enough.

Make sure you dry off your fillets prior to dipping in the batter.

Mix shore lunch with beer so it's thin enough to stick to fish, but where excess will run off fairly easy. Get some Panko (Japanese) bread crumbs that you should be able to find your grocery store, depending on where you live. Dredge the battered fish in the bread crumbs and deep fry them. When they are golden brown, take them out and immediately sprinkle them with a little salt. These will have the shore lunch taste, but may be the crunchiest fried fish you've ever had. My kids always ask for crunchy fish, and everyone that has tried them loves them.

lambjm, Go with the tip from BobT!! Why mess up a perfectly good fillet with a bunch of rabbit-food flavorings? AS pure and simple as it can be... so it should be. Phred52

    • I have to stop procrastinating, ice will be here before I know it! I made a little progress lately, I painted the inside, installed cedar accessory boards and thermostat and hopefully by this weekend have the rubber flooring down. I also ordered the termination cap for the furnace, should be seeing that in the next week or so. I also have a custom cushion being built to fit my bench seating. Got a question on rattle reels, I am looking at the all aluminum ultimate  rattle reels. Anybody use them? They seem a little spendy but not too concerned about the price, looking to see if there are any reviews out there. If those don’t seem to fit your need, what other brands have u used and feedback on them would be nice also. I will take some pics this weekend for a quick update.  
    • Sport's Show is a great place. I purchased the grey Frabil for under $200.00 But that was 5 years ago
    • You mean like Chicago is doing with Hossa?  Great idea...think of the space that would clear up!
    • Six of us shot 10 on public land Saturday near Worthington.  Good day until the wind really kicked up at the end of the day.

    • Parise Update:    Zach Parise, battling an undisclosed injury, was in a red jersey and skating on a line with Joel Eriksson Ekand Eric Staal. The goal for the past several days was for him to make his season debut this weekend. But early in practice, Parise left the ice and did not return. "I talked briefly with Chuck, but he said it was a setback. I don't know how much of a setback or anything," Boudreau said. "I know I talked to him before practice and he felt great. That's why he was in a red color and was ready to go. The next thing I know, somebody told me he went off. I don't know why he went off. Obviously, something didn't feel right."   My feelings is that he needs to be put on the LTIL and get 100%.
