      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.

    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
    • Paint is roughy just used what I had but pretty dang happy with it for 30 bucks.  First charcoal test lasted 6-7 hours.A5B3A72F-6F87-445B-949E-92B20BF41ECF.MOV  
    • I still think sous vide is the ticket if you want the lean roast to be tender, juicy, and pink .  (must resist temptation to insert inappropriate remark here) Next I think I will try the accelerated simulated dry aging where the meat is brushed with fish sauce before sealing in the bag and going in the refrigerator, and then held at 103 for an hour or so (not too long) in the bath before cooking at 130.  
    • I purchased the FLX-28 last season after using the 18 for several years and wow, what a night and day difference!  I really enjoy the auto depth range feature and digital depth readout.  No more taking time to guess the depth!  Weed mode rocks in shallow water weeds when I'm looking for 'gills.  The two zoom zones are great especially for suspended crappies when the 6 foot bottom zoom isn't enough.  Now the bottom 12 feet is there.  Great battery life and it's much quieter than the 18.  Color customization is nice (I have it on palette 3) and I don't have any interference from any other flasher thanks to 20 rejection modes.  I've seen the Marcum 6 and 7s in action and they are also very nice units and allow for lots of customization.  Biggest issue is time to learn the features and the price point.  Still hard to beat the quality of Vexilar or the service the company provides!
    • My dad, may he rest in peace, used an old wood cutting bandsaw that he converted by making some sort of kludgey plywood things to keep the blade on the wheels.   Worked fine.  Not sure how easy it was to clean.   Also not sure how much he worried about it.   Ease of disassembly for cleaning, and blade retention in the presence of food grease would seem to be the big issues.  He cut up a lot of deer and a few moose and nobody got sick...  for what that's worth.
