      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 .

Most of the time I just breast them out. Unless someone wants to roast one then I will pick it and leave the skin on. I turn most of my goose into jerky and use the ducks for cooking/grilling.

I don't know...I always make my buddies do the cleaning!!!!! ha ha. Actually breasting them is by far the easiest. I've done the plucking when I know that I want to roast it, but it is a pain. I have also skinned them out and roasted them in an oven bag. Just remember...if you are field dressing them you have to leave a wing attached. The best though is still making your buddies do it. I prefer the pretend you are still putting decoys/working on equipment method!

I'm with duckbill, pull the skin back and filet the breast off the bone, jerky is the only way I can eat them.

Well I usaully breast them out, unless I want to roast one. To the guys who only like the jerky, if you marintate the breats in something acidic, coke, orange juice, buttermilk for a few hours, it takes the gamey tast right out and they actauly taste like steak.

Breast of goose, marinated, then grilled medium is one of the best cuts of meat a person can eat!

Cut the breast in half or thirds depending on the size. Butterfly these steaks, stuff with red and yellow peppers. Wrap with bacon and grill for about 20 minutes. Excellent steak that often tastes very close to beef. Still working on a chicken that tastes like everything else.

I guess breasting them is easier but I still like to pluck and clean mine. Taking away the skin takes most of the flavor away. For those that think goose taste gamey why hunt them hunt something else or go fishin. I guess I grew up old style the first time I filleted fish gramps cussed and swore at me in norwegian on how I was wasting good fish and grabbed the carcase of fish went to house and we had fish stew for dinner. My cousin made the mistake of breasting a goose in gramps garage one time later, I knew better. I just like mine with the skin on baked in the oven with some wild rice. It is a waste to just take the breast, a waste that has become socially aceptable. I know don't even start I hear it from my buddies all the time that the little bit of meat just ain't worth the time.

Usually cut up the meat into cubes and soak changing the water throughout the day. Then drain the water and try to get out as much moisture as possible. Then grind it up and add seasoning.I use the Northwoods(or whichever has the deer on it) packets from Gander. Then use a Jerky shooter and make sticks in the oven. I will also take some geese and slice the breast meat when partially frozen, easier to get consistent and thin strips, and marinate in same packet mix and dehydrate it. Both work great except the dehydrator is a pain to clean!

I breast them out. Then I let cut them up into about 1" cubes. Soak the cubes in Italian salad dressing for a day. Take the cubes, wrap a chunk of bacon around it, stick it with a toothpick and grill on the Weber until the bacon is done. Takes about 5 minutes or so. Goose-K-Boobs. They're great!!!!!!!!

Sunday went over to my brothers to goose hunt, for supper we had the legs/thighs from the four geese that he had shot the day before, he had roasted them slow in gravy and mushrooms with plenty of moisture, we ate it over potatoes - excellent!!!

The guys he hunts with don't want to 'bother' with the legs, so he harvests them - theres quite a bit of meat on them - and ends up having some excellent eating.

This 'throwing the legs away' is the same with pheasants, I know lots of guys that throw the legs - "too stringy"- but that thigh/shank meat from a pheasant is as good as it gets in a roaster and seems like a waste to throw away.

If I'm just breasting it out, I pluck the feathers from the breast, then make a cut from the top of the breast by the throat all the way down to the bottom of the breast but just cut deep enough to break the skin. Then I pull back the skin and carve out the two breast chunks.

try this
get a big pot of water and boil it. put in a little Comet cleanser. when the water is boiling, dunk the goose in several times to wet the feather good. then just run your hand down the goose and the feathers fall right off. it works trust me

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
