      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 .

Dick and Bert

Are there any announcers more entertaining? They make watching the game on TV almost as fun as actually being at the game.

I enjoy listening to them and actually think they call a pretty fair game. Bob Uecker just flat cracks me up and I listen to his games just to hear him. Anyone what to make a wager that the current hot dog debate will last at least till the 4th of July? Will Dick ever have his dog deliver to the box like Bert does?

And why doesn't Bert eat the bread with his 'dog? Will Bert continue to talk with a mouthfull of animal parts? How many birthday references will we hear with 355 days until his next B-Day?

I do get a kick out of that pair. They are tied at the top of my list with Frank-n-Woog for Gopher hockey broadcasts.

Sorry this is old history, but for me nobody was more entertaining to listen to than Harry Caray and Jimmie Piersall back in their WSox days-but then again they had to be.

Not that I'm bored at work or just have nothing better to do. The answer to your question is 135 more time. Well that is how many more time they are broadcasted on FSN. Plus how ever far they make it in the play-offs but should be pretty close though. Could be a few less if Bert happens to slip a couple "F" enhymers by mistake. I met Bert after a game a few years back at a bar next to the dome. He was a hoot. We bought him a couple Coors lites and he bought our table a round. Pretty down to earth guy and between Dick and him they are two of the best at what they do.

Watching as many games as possible on FSN (which my wife will fairly accurately tell you is around 125-130), you cringe just a bit in July/August when some of the phrasing D&B use gets repetitive: "...when he's throwing the ball good..." "They play the game the right way...", the 'call,' the AFLAC trivia, the "This copyrighted broadcast..." speech, but after watching a few WSox games on WGN, you can easily thank your lucky hanky that we don't have to listen to those contrived homer-isms. Overall, Dick and Bert are a good balance.

Now, if we could get the fans in front of me to leave the 'Circle Me' signs at home, it's all good.

Geno,

I have to agree with you on that one. Harry and Jimmy were a classic on the old Sox games. One of my favorite lines was Harry saying to Jimmy (who was on a rant for one reason or another) "You're crazy if you think that". To which Jimmy replied, "I'm not crazy, and I have the papers to prove it". Way funny!

I still have an old baseball autographed by Harry when I saw him at the old Evergreen Park shopping plaza.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
