      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 am in the market for a food sealer. I will be mostly sealing fish and pheasants. Can anyone recommend a good one and what should I be looking for? Thanks

To be honest, I dont know what to look for.. I have a Food Saver and it works great for what I do with it.

I have a Food Saver and use it mostly for game. It works great. Don't buy the cheapest one though. I think I gave about $180 for mine.

Foodsaver for me. I have an older one and it works great. Check Kohls as they always have them 30-50% off.

I've had a food saver for about 6 years. I use it for fish, ducks, steak, chicken, strawberries in one of the cannisters. It works very well. Get one with the built in storage for the bag roll and the cutter.

Thanks for all the replies everyone. I just purchased a FoodSaver Pro III model for $180.00. I can't wait to use it.

You will really like what you can do to preserve your food with the Food sealer. When you want to seal any game or fish that has some liquid with it try to freeze it for a couple of hours so it will make a better air tight seal. I find that I really love the ability to vacuum pack quart jars so see if it is possible with yours. I will make 12 quarts of spaghetti sauce and leave about a inch from the top and freeze and the stuff is as fresh as the day I made it.

Another question, how long does food, let's say, a pheasant last after it's been sealed and put in the freezer? Thanks

It will last a year as a pretty good rule. If you get most of the liquid out and seal it up well I've eaten venison from 2+ years ago and it tasted great. I don't know how I let that one stay hidden, but we found it.

Everything should be fine for a year or more.

I have had pheasants sealed for over a year. Works better then putting them in a freezer bag that's for sure.

Sometimes you have to watch the bags because somehow they like to come unsealed when in the freezer for awhile.
