      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 .

Tapeworms??

Recommended Posts

Fish'n guy

I speared a 3# pike the other day in southern minnesota and waited until the next day to clean him. well I started cleaning him as usual when I noticed some small tapeworms in her belly outside of the stomach which really surprised me. My question to you is, is this a common in the region? How many of you have experienced this? I didn't finish cleaning the fish I disposed of it properly. Not sure if I want to spear any more snotters out of that lake or not even though there are some big ones in there.

Back on the tapeworms though they are sure some nasty little critters, layin there all squirming around and whatnot! It about makes a guy want to vomit right there. tongue.gif

did you leave the fish frozen, or did it get up to room temp for awhile?

The fish never really froze beings I had it in the garage all night but it wasn't near room temperature when I cleaned it.

Tapeworms are very common in walleyes also. Look closely in the livewell after having a walleye die in it. Lots of tapeworms. Thats why its recommended not to eat any Walleye or northern sushi. Cooking will kill the worms if they are in the flesh. Tapeworm usually are not in the flesh.But your knife cutting through them will contaminate the meat.

Most of the time you are cleaning a freshly killed fish an the worm have not had time to try to leave the fish for a living host so they go unnoticed.

Also, if you plan on pickling any fresh water fish, you are advised to freeze the flesh for 2-3 days prior to the pickling process. The salts and vinegar alone cannot guarantee that all parasites will be killed.

Good Luck!
