      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 .

Walleye Rueben

Shore Lunch Ideas

Recommended Posts

Walleye Rueben

We are heading to Lac Seul in July for the annual fishing trip. We have shore lunch every day.

  • Pan Fried Walleye
  • Fried Potatoes (with onions and bacon)
  • Baked Beans
  • Canned Fruit

We've been eating this for many years and everyone loves it. However, I would like a little variety, as I get tired of eating the same thing after a few days.

I'm looking for your ideas for ways to "mix it up a little", possibly different ways to prepare the fish, or different dishes.

Thanks

Cooking fish wrapped in tin foil with fresh herbs and butter comes out good in a fire. A packaged jambalaya mix comes out good with fresh fish. As far as sides go buy a bunch of ears of corn. Leave unshucked and cover with foil. You can throw them right on the coals. Make sure to bring some butter and a cajun seasonings for the corn.

For convenience sake, I dropped the potaoes this year, and substituted Vigo white & wild rice mix. No one missed the potatoes. I also brought Pita breads (they don't smoosh or go stale as fast) and guys stuffed them with fish, hot sauce, tartar, rice or beans.........

One thing I do is cut up some potatoes, Carrots, Onions, cauliflower or whatever combination of vegetables you like and wrap them in a tin foil pouch. When you're ready to eat, open the pouch, add butter and enough water to steam the vegetables, close the pouch and place directly on the grate. It's easy and really tasty.

You can also add season salt's or whatever. Give it a shot at home on your barbecue before you go to see if you like it.

I like to wrap my walleye filets in tin foil with butter, green pepper, onion, and mushroom, and season with "natures seasons" from cub, or some other variety season mix. Cook for about 30 minutes... awesome.

I too love to bring in corn on the cob.

Instant stuffing mix is usually pretty light, and only needs boiling water and butter.

If you want to skip fish one day, you could just do spaghetti, it's light and ez... and great on a cold rainy day.

Gander mountain has some freeze dry stuff that's pretty good. I like the sweet n sour pork. It's just add boiling water.

I second the vigo rice dishes in a bag. I recommend the red beans and rice with the cajun fish fry, black beans and rice with regular fish fry. the bags take of very litte room and two bags will feed 6-8 guys.....it takes about 25 minutes of simmerin', enough time for a couple cool ones.

The vigo foil bags are very easy to pack out as well.

They also can be used as makeshift drink glasses and water transporters in a pinch. smile.gif

Our gudie did this this year and it was real good. Took fresh sliced and cooked hashbrowns,(in the dairy section, then took sliced vidalias and sliced mushrooms and fried them in the oil before he frid the fish. Sprinkle Lawrys on them and it was awesome. That was the first thing that ran out.

Slaw, Asian salad and potato salad are favorites with us. Sometimes we'll bring a boil-in-the-bag cheesy veggie mix.

Can you get these Vigo rice dishes at grocery stores like Cub?

You can get Vigo at most major grocers. I prefer the White and Wild rice, and then a big can of pork and beans on the fire. The Slaw is also a great idea. Nice crisp green veggies are always a plus. Just get the bagged kind of coleslaw that you add your own dressing to. It keeps way longer than a bagged salad.

Can you explain how you do your fish boil with butter and garlic sauce? Is it steamed in tin foil or do you actually boil it?

Thanks, Vickie

several years ago we did the boil thing in a dill sauce and it was great. I am almost positive we used a baking bag in boiling water. I would bet since then someone has come out with something better than a baking bag for this, but I do know it worked for us.

You actually boil it. I've never done it for shore lunch but at home you just bring (salted) water to a boil, toss in the fillets, when it comes to a boil again, drain the water, and drisel your (garlic) butter over the top. If you want to do potatoes with it, bring your water to a boil, dump in the potatoes, when it comes to a boil, add the fish, when it comes to a boil again, its all done, drain and add your butter. Very good and not as greasy as fried fish. If you were going to do this for shore lunch you may want to do it over a camp stove.

Well we actually quit the fish idea overall as it takes too much time,prep and mess as well as it adds to many additional items to the boat, so now we resort to the oh so good roasted hot dog over an open fire, it's simple no mess and your back fishing in no time.

I assume you guys are talking walleye filets. I have visions of them breaking into pieces and being a big mess -- do the filets stay together in one piece? I've seem some fish chowder/soup ideas that look good, too but haven't tried them yet.

I like that idea irvingdog. It reminds me of fish tacos. They'd be great with walleye. Use a corn/flour tortilla, add lettuce or cabbage, hot sauce and/or tarter sauce (sour cream is also good), and squeeze on a little lime and you're set. Do some rice and beans or something on the side. It's simple and delicious.

Now I'm hungry.

      I have not heard any reasons for the purported relocation.  Just thinking out loud here - Walker Bay has not had enough ice in many of the past years, so they have to hold the event on shore and not on the lake.  There is limited space for a shore event there.  Maybe Bemidji makes more ice and/or they have more on-shore accommodations.  Walker itself is more of a tourist and family town and the Pout Fest is not that.

      Hunters are reminded to register deer before processing, before antlers are removed and within 48 hours after taking the animal, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  “Deer registration provides information that is essential to our ability to manage deer populations,” said Steve Merchant, wildlife populations and regulations manager. “Hunters are required to register deer and it’s a fairly simple process.” Hunters register deer with a phone call, online or in person. Before registering a deer, hunters must validate their site tag. The validated tag must be attached to the deer when the deer is placed on a motor vehicle or an ATV, a vehicle or a trailer being towed by an ATV or brought into a camp, yard or other place of habitation. Phone registration
      Register deer via phone by calling 888-706-6367. Directions are printed on each deer hunting license. Have a pen or permanent marker ready. A confirmation number will be given; it must be written on the license and site tag. Internet registration
      Register deer via internet at mndnr.gov/gameregistration. Directions will be similar to phone registration, and a confirmation number must be written on the license and site tag. In-person registration
      When phone or internet registration is not possible, hunters must take their deer to a big-game registration station. The person whose name appears on the license must be present at the registration station with their deer. They will receive a big-game possession tag that must be attached to the hind leg, ear or antler where the site tag was attached. A list of all stations organized by city and county is available at any DNR wildlife office or at mndnr.gov/hunting/deer. During registration, the hunter must use the permit area number where the deer was harvested; using the wrong deer permit area for registration is illegal. Registration instructions for all methods are available at mndnr.gov/gameregistrationhelp. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Hi Jim, the problem with channels on Tonka is not only the current, which keeps the ice thin all winter, but also due to the effects of road salt/chemicals.  Many of the channels have bridges over them which receive a lot of automobile traffic.  In the winter, road salt/chemicals are pour on the roads during adverse weather conditions.  Cars and especially snow plows cause the salt/chemicals to splash over the guard rails and onto the ice.  When you see new reports of cars going thru the ice on channels, it's usually right under a road overpass, for this reason.  Because of the road salts, channels are just a super dangerous place to be, even during our coldest winters.

      I'm pretty sure there is still a winter only access on Smith's bay just north of where hiway 51 intersects hiway 15 at the lake.  It's just before the North Shore Marina. You'd have to trailer to there but then you'd have the main lake to fish.

      Pheasants banded in Nobles and Redwood counties Pheasant hunters can voluntarily report roosters that were banded as part of a study being conducted by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  DNR Farmland Wildlife Populations and Research Group workers captured and banded roosters during a research project. The two study areas involved in the project are the Lamberton Wildlife Management Area complex in Redwood County and the Worthington Wells Project Area south of Worthington, located in Nobles County. Although the study is focused on hen pheasants and their broods, roosters were also opportunistically captured in an attempt to collect survival information on males. A plain metal leg band with a unique identifying number was placed on the right leg of each rooster. Hunters are asked to contact the Farmland Wildlife Research Group to report harvest information. The band number, date of harvest, and location information (WMA name or GPS coordinates preferred) are requested. If hunters want information on when and where the bird was initially captured, they may also provide their contact information so that researchers can return their call. GPS locations and personal data will not be made public. Although Minnesota has a rooster-only hunting season, hunters who come across a dead radio-collared and/or banded hen are also asked to call with information so that researchers can refine their hen data. To voluntarily report birds marked as part of this study, contact Lindsey Messinger, 507-642-8478, ext. 224. Alternatively, people may contact Lindsey by email at Lindsey.Messinger@state.mn.us. This work is funded in part through the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act. Additional details about pheasant hunting are available at mndnr.gov/hunting/pheasant.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, in conjunction with the Michigan and Wisconsin natural resources departments, will take questions about the Lake States Forest Bat Habitat Conservation Plan at 3 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 31. The phone conference is for anyone interested in the integration of forest practices with conservation measures to support bat populations.  Forest bat populations are rapidly declining, and one or more species may soon be reclassified as endangered. If reclassified, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides the opportunity to develop a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP). An HCP helps endangered species recover by setting out habitat conservation plans during land management activities. In preparation, Minnesota and neighboring states are developing a forest bat HCP that aims to maintain bat habitat and allow important forest management activities to continue. Input from forest land owners, forest managers, conservation groups and other stakeholders is essential to developing an effective HCP. An introductory video describing the HCP process and how to participate is available at https://youtu.be/46IAHTaqJQE. The DNR encourages participants to watch the video prior to the Oct. 31 question and answer session. To access the session, in the ten minutes prior to the call start time, participants should dial 855-802-6790 toll-free and, at the prompt, enter the conference ID code 93441291. Anyone requiring an accommodation to participate in the phone conference is asked to email bathcp.dnr@state.mn.us or call 651-259-5919 as early as possible. More information is available at mndnr.gov/bathcp.   Contact: Lindsey Messinger, wildlife research biologist, 507-642-8478, ext. 224.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
