      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 .

White Bass Recipes

Recommended Posts

I hit big on White Bass last year for the first time in 55 years of fishing. I had never before caught them and did not know what they were so I threw them back until a friend told me you could eat them.

I read a bit about them before I cooked them and learned you have to remove the red meat parts in order to keep the red meat from tainting the fillets. I fried them up like you would crappies and they were alright but not all the great.

I just wonder if anyone out there has any recipes for white bass that they like? I really like the way they fight but it seems a shame to catch them and take a chance they won't survive afterward? Anyone eat these critters? What is the best way to prepare them?

Thanks;

I like to fillet them up, clean all of the red meat off the backside of the fillet, soak them in milk in the fridge for an hour and then mix up an egg dip them in egg and roll them in cornflakes crumbs and fry them up a dash of lemon pepper, a dash of garlic salt and a dash of onion powder. Beer, red potatoes or has browns and dig in. Just like a big old crappie!

I can give you a recipe for a soup. Fillet the white bass, take all the red meat out. Boil some water, with a 5-6 cubes of chicken broth. Once the water boils throw in an onion or two cubed, and a few chopped up tomatoes. Let the vegetables boil for a bit to let the flavors in the liquid. Drop the fillets in and let it boil or simmers 15-20 minutes. Use a quarter to half of a lime and squeeze the juice into the boiling liquid. Add salt and black pepper your liking. Turn off the boiling liquid and then add some cilantro and green onions, now smell the aroma, mmmmm good,it taste just as good as the smell. I have a bunch of other recipes also.

Hey Thanks everyone@! I will try them. I especially like the Soup recipe because I do like a well made Fish soup or chowder. Especially when you are out on the ice and you have a milk container of the stuff thawed and ready for the pan. Nothing like coming in off the ice or just sitting in your ice house and putting a pan of fish soup or chowder on the Mr. Heater and letting it warm up. Nothing like a hot meal when you are cold and hungry.

It doesn't get better than that in my opinion. Which is another reason (besides meeting other fishermen) why I love ice fishing. I have found over the years that fishemen are the most generous with advice and their time and knowledge than any other group of sportsman out there.

I will try the fried fish tomarrow night for supper. I have about 8 whtie bass left in the freezer and they ought to make a tasty supper.

Once again everyone! Thanks!

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
