      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 .

Winkleman Fish Mix

Recommended Posts

Anyone use this stuff? I'm guessing he has different variations...is there one that is better than another?

Thinking about trying some new fish batter. Any advice?

I love the stuff. We ran out of our usual mix in Canada. Luckily I grabbed a few Babes and everyone loved it. Now that's all we use. My favorite is the cajun. AWESOME.

I bought some of Babe's for 99 cents a couple of weeks ago at Cub. I haven't tried it yet but figured I couldn't go wrong for that price. I'll let you know if I try it soon.

We tried Babes and thought it was OK. But I really like the "original" Shore Lunch seasoning much better.

Shore Lunch.I also like Original Shore lunch with Andy's from Fleetfarm.It also has cornmeal and is a little spicier.

I am not too sure I want to mix gary roach into original shore lunch. I heard he is tough to chew and kinda gets mad when you try to cook him up...;)

The best stuff I have used in my life, to include shore lunches when I guided is called, "Totally Wild Seasonings". I picked some up at the Fishing Show at the convention center a couple of years ago. It tastes great and does not burn after a couple of batches fried. Sportsman Warehouse stocks it or I just order it from them. It's a Mom and Pop business from our neighbors to the South.

If you can find it, I highly recommend using 10,000 Lakes Fish Coating mix. It's made by Sturdiwheat Foods out of Red Wing, MN. I have used them all, Shorelunch, Roach Mix, Ledgendary Northwoods, Andy's, etc. and this product has ALL of them beat hands down. I purchase three flavorings in particular--Original mix, Cajun mix and the Lemon mix. Not many retailers handle the product--I find it at Lunds and Byerlys stores. You might be able to order it on-line.

I mix one of the varieties with Panko (for crunch and cripsyness) and fry in peanut oil. Finished product is crispy, light and very flavorful.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
