      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've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
