      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 .

I don't know, haven't heard him on the radio for a while though. I would love to know what's up. PA kinda makes it sound like he's on vacation, but hasn't it been a good couple of weeks?

He went through a divorce recently, and that junk can catch up on you, especially when you are a public persona.

Give the man a break. They are a good duo - they have a nice thing going.

I think PA has some real talent and a great work ethic. Do you realize he's at the track just about every night in the summer announcing?

Dubay (IMO) just doesn't have the skills compared to other major market radio personalities. I would consider him a sidekick at best. When PA is out, the show suffers tremendously.

I agree with you Dtro, but I've heard "Summer of Stun" about 80 million times too many. PA needs to come up with some new catch phrases.

I heard Dubay got deathly sick from overdosing on the Minnesota sports Kool-Aid and had to go into rehab for CDS....Chronic Denial Syndrome.

Now if we can just get rid of Paul Allen along with Dubay, the PA and Dubay show will be much better! grin

Give the Common Man the 9-2pm slot!!

Exactly. I'd rather soak my teeth in kerosene and light them on fire than listen to the Common man.

I'd rather wrestle an alligator in a phone booth, than listen to the Common man.

I'd rather have a rabid marmot attack my lower extremities than listen to the Common man...

Other than that - he's ok, I guess. LOL

Dan Cole is a whole lot more entertaining than Tom Mischke on KSTP 1500,who air's in the same time slot.Common's bit does get a bit redundant,but does have the sports in it, to a point.Mischke is, well,you fill in the blank...

I realy like Mischke. Best lead up to GL that that station has had in years. A break from reality in the middle of the day. What can be wrong with that.

No offense to any one else,but that guy is too off the wall for me.Some of his phone conversations with folks make me go, 'what the $#&% is this guy on the radio for?' Just my opinion, doesn't have to be anyone elses. KFAN is on my dial until Garage Logic airs. Sorry for hijacking the thread here,with the Mischke reference.

Love em or hate em you listen to em all on the FAN. Common can be pretty funny, but he does get depressing. He loves sports and teams and hates em at the same time...all part of the bit I guess.

PA is talented but that guy would push his grandma out of the way for a dollar. Can you trust anything the guy says? Despite being plugged into the sports landscape we all know how his prognostication has been going...

Dubay-totally agree with what others have said. Struggles on his own.

Every personality on the FAN has things I don't like and things I do.

Star-funny but sophomoric.

Sludge-Immature and shallow but can be funny in a childish way

Barreiro-probably the one I like the most. Interesting guests and tastes but can go off on certain topics for no reason.

Hartman-let someone else get a word in, is never wrong. Not the overrunning 'homer' so many other MN media types are.

If you have it in you to give Common about 6 months his show is will become entertaining. Not as good as it was a few years back but still good IMO. Half of what he talks about are old bits and inside jokes for those that have been listening for years. He is an acquired taste. The one I can't handle is Hartman. I would rather listen to his Dad. At least you can laught him.

I feel the same exact way about Common and Hartman.

I hated Common at first, but now I actually enjoy his show, I sometimes find myself laughing out loud while eating lunch.

Having listened for years, I have few thoughts on the subject...

Chad Hartman - Did a friend in the business get this guy a job or what?? You probably can't find a better example of "It's not what you know, but who you know" out there. This guy doesn't belong out in public, much less on the radio. A little game I play is to try and change the station before his bumper music starts. This has involved such things as diving for the radio (on more than one occasion), and my favorite, once I chucked a hammer in the nick time and ka-pow! That was a close one. Too bad nobody was around to witness my magnificent save executed to perfection.

Ducky & Bunny - I'm in agreement here with what everyone else has said, S.T.A.L.E. Including PA pushing over his g'ma for a dollar. After a while of listening, you just start to see them for who/what they are. 'The truth comes out' I guess you could say. Lately, I feel like I'm just listening to a 3 hour long commercial. A rarely thought provoking, but occasionally entertaining one. I do like PA's occasional reference to local places though, as they're usually places I'm familiar with.

Common - For most who like him, it didn't start out that way- and they weren't shy about it. At least that's what I've found. Personally, I've never not liked him. If he could occasionally sprinkle in some seriousness/insight/sincerity into the serious matters it would go a long ways for him.

Barreiro - The most solid of the bunch. Well spoken and usually gets to the heart of the matter. I don't always agree with him but he let's you know where he stands, without 'Hartmaning-up' at every turn. His topics are usually somewhat interesting and his Friday, Done as a Society segment is usually entertaining.

Can't stand Common, I've tried listening to him time and time again and can't get into it. He's an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly and I have no clue what he's doing on the radio. I usually flip it over to Jim Rome or just turn music back on.

    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
    • Well the switch closes at 115 degrees F so you will have to place it somewhere that It reaches that temp when you want it to turn on. I would say inside on the sheet metal top vent would do the trick if you wanted it hidden If not I guess just stick it on the outside of the vent hole. Or I am guessing it will close if you just stick it on the side of the heater just have the flat part of the switch flush with it I know my heater gets pretty hot pretty much anywhere on the metal basically I would take a bbq thermometer and find a place that hits 115 when you would want the fan to kick on.    As for the wire go to the hardware store and get some high temp like this its rated to 392 F https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KCPL3GC/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01KCPL3GC&pd_rd_wg=NEE9O&pd_rd_r=NHQPZ29KWH6QT57M7M41&pd_rd_w=aiXqh   If you need something higher rated https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KCPL3GC/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01KCPL3GC&pd_rd_wg=NEE9O&pd_rd_r=NHQPZ29KWH6QT57M7M41&pd_rd_w=aiXqh That's rated for 482 F    
    •     I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF. 
    • I went back the next day hoping the slush froze.  No such luck i guess water wont freeze at 31 below zero.  Sunday i tried moving my fishouse.  I kept breaking threw the slush. We hooked 3 widetracks together to my fishouse and still had to jerk the heck out of it to get it out. I did get a few crappies Saturday afternoon.  We picked up 26 crappies. 
    • Finally made it to morson over the weekend.  Fishing didn't go as planned it was extremely cold on Saturday. Ended up with a epic stuck Saturday morning it was 31 below zero when i found some major water . I was pulling my alumalite fishouse on the way to go crappie fishing  I had to jack fishouse out of the water and set it on blocks. I then packed the slush down with my widetrak  i even used my trail groomer to pack it down. I let it sit tell Sunday afternoon to freeze down.

    •     Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees.   This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze.   The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless!   With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch!   Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain.   I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
