      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.

triple AAAA twins

it seems the twins of late have been another minor leuage team. we sign the best prospects, then when they become great, we let them leave. teams like the yankees and sox must love teams like the twins. if anyone becomes good or great, they will get them.

baseball needs a salary cap big time. of course guys like steinbrenner will be 100 percent against that. mad.gif

Heard on a radio station, next years Twins slogan, ( The 2008 Minnesota Twins get to know them. Then watch them play somewhere else.)

I think the Twins are doing the right things so far this off-season. Torii Hunter is NOT worth the 90 mil. the Angels shelled out for him. He is an awesome centerfielder and has only had one good year at the plate. That year just happened to be his free-agent year. The Twins were counting on him having just an "average" year at the plate coupled with his usual month long stay on the disabled list. If this would have happened he would still have been a Twin and probably signed the 3 year deal. At 90 mil for 5 years you have to tip your hat to him and wish him the best. Santana is just plain unsignable for the Twins. There is no way the Twins or 90% of the other major leaugue teams are going to be able to afford his asking price--upwards of 135-150 million. That's why there is only the Yanks/Boston/Angels and Met's even in trade talks with the Twins. Trade him and be done with it. In doing so we are going to be receiving some young "stars" in return. I'm excited about the Twins future and back them 100% in what they are doing right now.

I agree with you Zepman. Its good to hear some level headed thinking out of someone.

It is what it is, and the twins try to make the best out of what they have. Although I do think they could sign a few free agents once and a while.

Imagine that, a player having a breakout season on a contract year. How often do you hear that then their production tails off once they sign for the big money. It will be interesting to see what happens to Torri next few years.

If Torii starts to swing like he did when J Jones was with the Twins, he'll stink. If he continues to be selective like the last two years with Mauer and Morneau, he'll be fine. Trouble is he is now teammates with someone who swings more freely than JJ in Pedro Guerrero.

      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...

      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!!!
