      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 .

Homemade Tartar-sauce

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any "must-make" homemade tartar sauce recipes? I normally buy the jar-stuff, but think it's time to elevate the game a bit. I recently ate lunch at the loon-something or lazy-loon in downtown Minneapolis. I had a great fish-sandwich and an appetizer of walleye fingers. They had 2 tartar sauces on the table. One was a chipotle tartar and one was a jalepen~o tartar. Both excellent. It prompted me to post this one to see what others make.

AHH YUM!!! I like to use real mayo! I mince some onions, and throw a glob of relish in, and also a pinch or two of cayenne pepper. I love it.

Kind of a vague recipe, I'm not much of a measurer!

I make my own all the time and it varies a bit but the base is mayo, relish, fresh lemon juice, and salt n pepper...

I like to use dill relish instead of a sweet relish. The fresh lemon juice really adds a nice taste. I'll also finely chopp some onion in it sometimes. Chipotle pepper flakes is something I like to add to some batches also - just enough for some heat and smokieness. Some cajun seasoning is nice instead of the chipotle too...

I know I'm gonna hear it from the culinary experts on this one but I use Mayo and Ketchup 50/50. I don't know if that qualifies as tartar sauce but I've been eating it since I was a kid and I love it. It's just one of those things, I guess. These recipes sound great though, I'll have to try them.

I've never tried it on fish but I mix that up for dip for potato chips once in a while.

Cool!

I totally agree, you don't have to follow every rule of true "Cheffery" when creating a concoction. Just use your imagination and your taste buds and you'll end up with something you'll like.

I'll make scratch home made Mayo for some of my dishes and I'll use short-cut recipes for others as long as the results are equal.

I know it's completely different, but instead of tartar sauce (or sometimes to compliment it) we use Sweet Chili sauce by Maggie/Taste of Asia. My brother brought it to my cabin once and won us over. Everyone who does the pepsi challenge between tartar sauce and the chili sauce always keeps dipping their fried fish in the chili. I've find this stuff at Cub and Rainbow.

I don't care for horseradish and I prefer Miracle Whip to mayo. So I just add some sweet relish, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and a shot or two of hot sauce. I also throw in a liberal amount of regular Mrs. Dash.

    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
    • Final 2 minutes of lastnight’s game was pretty exciting. I agree, it’s going to take several more games for the team to really come together. But winning those types of games will make it happen faster!
    • So late last ice fishing season I was looking at underwater camera's and thought I narrowed it down to either a Marcum VS825SD or the Aqua-Vu HD700i.   Now I see Aqua-vu has a new model out this year the HD7i Pro.   Does any know what the differences are between the HD700i and the HD7i Pro ?    Usually I don't like to buy first year products as I like to see them get all the bugs worked out first.
