      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 .

I use saltine craskers also. Make sure they are ground very fine, like powder. I add lemon pepper and dill weed to it. Dip fillet in egg, then toss in cracker mix, then fry in pan with LOTS of butter, not oil. Is it lunck time yet?

We use a mix of cornflake crumbs and corn meal, 2/3 cornflake crumbs to 1/3 corn meal. You can also go 3/4 to 1/4 depending on how you like the breading. We also fry everything in lard. Potatos and fish have and entirly better taste in lard.

TRy dipping filets in egg and then coat with Italian Style Bread Crumbs. Coat them all then chill in freezer for about ten minutes before you deep fry.

I like to use Panko crumbs (after dipping in a light egg and water wash) but not allot of people are like me and have Panko crumbs in the cupboard at all times. I think a real good seconds choice is saltine crumbs as stated above. The trick it grind them up fine enough of it just gets clumpy and you do not get a good even costing. This is all the boys use when we go to Lac Suel.

I'm somewhere between fishorgolf and eyesonly. I like to use a 50/50 mix of Panko and Club crackers dipped in an egg/bear bath. Ritz work well in a pinch as well.

1/3 corn meal, 1/3 saltines, 1/3 spicy taco Doritos. Chop to very small pieces/powder. Dip the filet in flour, then an eagg wash then the chopped up crunchy stuff. Pan fry.

Winkelman mix is outstanding if you like cripy deep fried fish.

I use korn flakes and oatmeal with flour. Mix them all together. Do an egg wash then roll in the mix and pan fry. Enjoy. smile

Make sure you crush the korn flakes first though.

With the health kick going. OK, MY weight going up, ive been doing a lot more baking of my fish. Spray fillet with " i cant believe its not butter" and then sprinkle on garlic salt and cayanne pepper and bake for 15 min. If you like fish with a little kick, you will love this simple recipe.

After years of experimenting, this is the only way I do it now.

1. Dredge in seasoned flour (Season salt, garlic powder & pepper). Shake off excess.

2. Dip in Egg Wash

3. Dredge in (my order of preference depending on what I have on hand)

A: Panko (very nice crunch)

B: Seasoned Bread Crumbs

C: Unseasoned Bread Crumbs

D: Crushed Saltines

Fry in enough Canola or Veg Oil to cover half of fillet. When the fish is lightly browned on each side, its done. With hot oil it shouldn't take more than a couple minutes per side, depending on the size of the fillet. Nothing worse than overcooked fish, especially if they are freshly caught fillets.

    • Might find it in here...... https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/exhibits/butterfly-rainforest/id-guide/orange/  
    • Very nice photos eyeguy54.
    • Ya he comes home the 29th getting excited for pheasant going to take a trip out to sodak this year Ended up showing a guy from work who is a first time bow hunter a couple of my spots in Sherburne. Was going to walk kunkel after for grouse but it ended up getting too late so just went home. Was hoping for some good weather this weekend but doesn't look too good. Friday is a high of 90! no thanks Maybe I will get a morning sit in for deer hunting if the rain cooperates
    • anybody know what it is?
    • I've been finding a few hens, but nothing like last year (which was great for me).  Here's one that was just shy of ten pounds sitting next to my daughter.
    • You may as well paddle a green kiddie pool around.  Might find one for 50 cents if you look a little. Um, yeah, I've actually seen it done. 
    • Good move!  I'm sure they are thankful! I might've made an offer if I'd seen this before but they'll probably be better used in the organization that received them. Sorry the hear your hunting days are over.
    • There is no way Koivu doesn't get more term and $$ in free agency, not a lot more but he gets more. Marleau is trending down and got more money, Hansel got 750 less and is not in the same league as Koivu. I was hoping for something like 4.5 or 5 but what he got at 2 years is very reasonable. He is a lifelong wild, our captain and a great player, we have no immediate replacement, he makes our team better for the next 3 years be it 1/2/3 center. This isn't something to get upset about, scandella trade sure, aging parise sure but that had to be done, not getting a young center sure but that can sometimes be out of our control because it takes two teams to trade. I get it people are bitter about last year but what fan base isn't bitter about this or that? 
    • I ran 10 gauge wire from my shore or generator feeder to my converter.  Way over kill for a 2000 watt generator but if you ever take it camping or run it off a 3k in the summer it's nice to be wired for the extra wattage.  10 feet of 10 gauge really isn't that much money on the whole project... nice thing about running your inverter directly from the battery and splitting a couple outlets is they are always ready to go.  Just hit the switch on the inverter and you don't have to mess with unplugging and plugging in strings of 110 outlets.  Behind my tv the bottom outlet runs of the Genny and the top runs of the inverter.  Nice thing is if I ever wanted to run the whole 110 system off the inverter I can just run a 6 inch cord with a male plug on each end out the top outlet and into the bottom and power the whole house.
    • This looks like it will work to me. I had thought of doing something similar when I was thinking of going with the inverter, seperate 12v fuse block and onboard charger. Would have wired a "hot" outlet direct from generator. Then ran a piece of romex with a male plug wired onto it and tied the 110v into that. then I could have either plugged that into the "hot" outlet along with the onboard charger, when the generator was running. Or I could have plugged it into the inverter when needing to run off battery power.
