      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

I like his chances, he can sure put them out anywhere in the park as he has power to all fields. If he hits at the bottom of the first round he might have a good chance. Give him a chance to see what he needs to advance and save some of that power for the finals.. Just good to see a local boy in it. { the secret word for today is chance]

I believe Hunter was in it four years ago...out first round. Well Morneau stunk it up I thought but the rest of the first rounders didn't do much better...He was way too anxious swinging at those inside pitches from Gardy..

Happy to see Guererro win it.

I guess I'm not sure how Morneu stunk it up? He hit 4 HR's more than about half of the field,and was in a swing off for the next round. Thought he represented the Twins well. Also considering the fact that no left handers made the 2nd round should tell a person how hard it is to hit a HR in the park in the first place. cool.gif

I thought he did well, he also had one foul/over the fence, and one liner hit high off the right field wall. He hit 2 gold balls out which shows how he handles pressure. I don't think any of the next 6 batters hit a gold ball out in the first round.

Well I meant to say I thought he was stinking it up since he was the first batter and only hit four home runs...then the others batted and the top number wasn't much better, that made hime look better. He was swinging at some bad pitches, if would have been a bit more patient, he would have advanced.

Lefties were at a BIG disadvantage in that park, much deeper and he hit the wall a couple times, they would have been homers in the other corner.

And the fact the wind was blowing from right to left, kinda takes the pull factor away from the lefties.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
