      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 .

Eating Geese

Two weeks ago I thawed out one of my last goose breasts from last year. Put it in marinade over night then slapped it on the grill. Very dry, very tough!

I know there is a recipe forum, but because this is specific to waterfowl and I believe I'd get a better response in this forum, I was wondering if everyone could share how you like to make your geese. Any good recipes on how to make a good, tender, tasty goose breast? That last one I made was pretty much rawhide, but I ate it anyway. tongue.gif

Jerky, jerky or jerky are the options I use with geese.

But I just don't have much of a taste for waterfowl honestly. The jerky turns out wonderful!

Here you go basscatcher.

I'm a simple cook.

1- Crock Pot

1- Goose breast cut into approximately 1"x1" cubes or so

1- Can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup

-- Little bit of water

Set on low and let sit all day.

Simple, tender, and Mmmmmm.... blush.gif

I'm guessing your goose may have been tough because it was froze for nearly a year. Might not have been but could have been a factor.

Last time I made goose, I got one of those slow cooker helpers for a pot roast(next to hamburger helper). Just sub the goose instead of the beef, add some spices and whatever else you might like in there. It turned out great. The duck I tried that way didn't turn out so well though, so this is pretty much for geese only.

Put the breast in the crock pot with a pot of coffee. Let it cook on low all day. Drain the coffee and shread the meat. Add your favorite BBQ suace. Loose Goose Sandwich.

Or

Cube breast meat into 1" squares. Marinate in 1/2 red wine 1/2 Zesty Italian dressing for a couple of days. Put meat on cabob sticks with bacon. Grill until the bacon looks done. Duck and goose should be served medium rare to keep from drying out.

For goose breast, try cutting them into thin strips about the size of your index finger. Flower and salt and pepper in a bag and put in strips and shake to coat them. Put in a pan and fry - yes fry them up. Very important-- use butter flavored Crisco instead of regular oil. The butter flavored Crisco is the most important part. I also do my ducks this way. Never used to care for duck till I tryed this out.

I'm with BLB...I make jerky out of nearly all of mine...Personally, I think the cajioun flavor removes a lot of the "wild game" taste...People who say they don't like duck or goose, really can't tell when it is jerky. It is usually a huge hit at work too...

Here's my favorite:

Goose Breasts

1 package of dried Au Juus

1 package of dried Italian Dressing Mix

1 Can of Beef Broth

Place the goose in a slow cooker, add the ingredients, and mix well. Cook for about 6 hours.

I've had guys who swore they'd never eat goose, wiping the plate clean with a piece of bread and looking for more.

Here's one my kid daughter and her friend returned for seconds when before hand they both turned up their noses when I offered them goose.

1. Crock pot

2. Goose breast(s)

3. Onion soup base. I made my own using onions, garlic, mushrooms, celery, salt, pepper, and water but I might try Lipton Onion Soup mix the next time.

4. Simmer all day.

5. Enjoy the most tender and flavorful goose you ever have! grin.gif

Wow, those all sound like great recipes!

I've tried the goose jerky before, some that a co-worker had made. It was pretty darn good and you really couldn't tell it was goose.

I'll have to thaw out the last breast I have in the freezer (gotta make room for more now anyway!). grin.gif I think I'll just go right down the list of suggestions as you guys have posted and give EACH a try throughout the season! wink.gif

Thanks much for all the tasty lookin' recipes!

Quick and easy, best I've had, works well for venison loins too.

Ingredients: Goose breast whole, 1/4 stick butter, cooking sherry, flour/salt/pepper, olive oil, grape/berry jam

Roll the whole breast in flour/salt/pepper mix. Place in hot pan with olive oil for 30 seconds a side to brown. Remove from pan and thin slice breast 1/4 inch thick. Meat will still be raw. Place back into the hot olive oil for ~30 seconds a side, this is plenty to cook it through. Remove meat turn heat to low and add a little sherry to deglaze the pan, add butter and a little jam and melt/mix it. Add meat back to pan and stir the mix over the meat, cook for 1 more min and you are done. Tender enough to cut with a fork and great taste.

Do Not Overcook

I like to marinate whole breasts overnite in a combination of Coke or Dr. Pepper and zesty italian salad dressing. Before throwing them on the grill, slit them open and put a favorite BBQ sauce in the middle, close 'em back up and wrap the breasts in bacon and hold together with toothpicks. Awesome...although now I see I'm going to have to experiment with all these other recipes I've seen! Good luck!

One of My Favorite's

First you lay the goose breast's in glass baking dish. You season them with your favorite all spice type seasoning. Slice up green,red and orange peppers and arrange them on top of the goose.

Second you pour Captain Morgan spiced Rum into the pan, just enough to cover the meat. Put the dish into the oven and bake on 300 for approximately 2 hours, adding a little Rum as needed to keep covered due to evaporation.

Third you remove the pan from the oven and let cool. Throw the peppers and goose into the trash and drink the Rum. grin.gif

To go along with "snowgoose" The loose goose meat is very good. I have done this before, just not with coffee. You can make up your favorite home made BBQ sauce. If you end up stripping enough meat for a large feed. You will have sore thumbs.

Von Hansons will make you up a tasty batch of sticks for a little over a $100. We prefer the hot cheese. We also have a batch made up with most of our pheasant. I believe they like 20 pounds or so at a time.

If you get a young goose that is tender enough to eat: Cut the breast in half or thirds depending on the size steak you want. Butterfly, stuff with red and yellow peppers, wrap entirely in bacon and throw on the grill.

Here how I get birds out of my freezer.

Marinate breast in 1/2 of a can of beer and 1 cup BBQ sauce. Preferrably over night.

Cut breast into 2" cubes. Try to make all cubes the same size.

Wrap each cube in a slice of bacon and secure with a tooth pick.

Grill on a charcaoal gril with indirect heat for about 45 min. turning once.

I have taken these to parties with a crowd that I suspected to be somewhat "anti-hunting" and they finished em off and ask me to bring em every year.

I like to make jerkey or smoke the breasts in the smoker. It I am cooking the bird I will take the breasts off of the breast bone, and brown them in a frying pan.. Then I will add a 1/2 cup of h20 to a can of cream of mushroom soup put in a pan and set in the oven at 350 for an hour or so depending on the thickness of the breat. Had my geese this way the other night and they turned out phenomenal.

Good Hunting!

For Mike in Lino III

Making jerky at home.

You need a grinder, a dehydrator and a jerky gun

I buy the NESCO brand seasoning at Walmart. (I like to mix the cajun and the original types together)

1) Grind goose meat.

2) Add NESCO seasoning and cure. (One package of each per pound of meat)

3) Shoot on trays with NESCO jerky gun.

4) Let it dry for about 6 hours at the high setting on your dehydrator turning the meat and rotating the trays one time at about 4 hours.

Warning: Your house will smell like jerky for a day or so after you are done. I try to make my jerky in the summer in the garage so the wife doesn't have to smell it.

I put mine in food saver bags and bring it out whenever I want some.

Best Way to make jerky is to cut the breast into thin strips and then soak it in a brine(any will do but brines with orange or apple juice are best) for a full twenty four hours. Then remove the strips and thread on a kabob stick. Set in the smoker for approximately four hour on 180 degrees.

Preparation is part of it make sure you are removing all the blue skin from the meat as this is where most wild game will get the off taste from. Marinate your cubed goose or duck in what ever you like me personally it's Teriaki and herb with a slpash of lemon juice, an A-1 over night. Wrap in bacon, slice up a sweet onion, green and orange bell pepper and proced to scewer em on a kabob. Slow cook on the grill until the bacon and the vegies are done don't over cook it or it will be tough. You won't be dissapointed I've served this to people that said they'ed never eat goose or duck again and they loved it.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
