      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 .

How long is too long???

Recommended Posts

I'm sure that I'm not the only one who has done this, but after filleting my fish I sometimes keep then in the frig. because I am going to be cooking them in the next day or two. And then they get pushed to the back of the shelf and lost for some additional time. How long should/can I keep the fish in the frig without killing my family when it comes time to prepare it???

I'm thinking that unless you have no sense of smell you should be able to tell if the fish is going rancid. There's very little blood or fat in the flesh so I would suspect it may keep for quite some time. I may be wrong though.

FDA says fish bought off the shelf should be cooked or frozen within 2 days...not sure how long the store is capable of displaying it before sale however.

My guess is that you are ok within a week or so as long as it doesn't stink and the meat is not mushy or discolored at all. I've let fish set in the fridge for up to 4 days with no problems.

I was thinking that four to five days might be the limit. I tried some five day old fillets on the parents yesterday and they raved about the taste. I noticed that the fillets really cleaned up nice and white because of being in the water for that long and appeared to have grown (taken on some water). I had swapped out the water in the bag on day three. Thanks for the input guys!!

How about fish fillets frozen in a block of ice? In June I froze some fillets in a zip-lock bag filled with water. I planned on eating them within a month but didn't. Anyone freeze them this way more than 6 months? I normally eat my fish fresh within a couple days.

I've ate fish close to a year old before froze in a gallon zip-lock & water. Not a thing wrong at all. However, I would not recommend holding that long. But in the ice has proven very successful for me. I wouldn't pack any other way. June, huh? Don't worry at all about them. You'll see.

Going back about 30 years.....

Nearly killed myself with greed for fish. I'd worked my keister off to get those fish, and would not let them go to waste.

Couple of nice little trout. Too long waiting to be cooked. Cooked and ate.

Sicker than you can possibly imagine. At several points in that ordeal, I simply wished death would claim me. Couldn't eat lake trout for several years afterwards.
