Great day to work from home. Avoid the snowy commute and flick between the high school hockey tournament and Twins game all afternoon. Just hope my boss isn't viewing these pages...

--edit-- Wow!! Garret Jones just blasted a home run WAY out to right field. That ball was absolutely crushed.

We have some good players on our team but there was a few rookie mistakes there also. I think we will be competitive this year, more so with a strong second half.

I agree with wanderin - it will be a tough open to the season....acclumating all the new guys and such.

But we should come together nicely down the stretch and scare for 2nd in the division...not that we can do it but we can get close i think.

Not to boast or anything but I'm heading to Fort Myers on Friday March 14th for a little spring training action and a few jaunts out in the Everglades. I'm getting pretty pumped-up for the trip given all this winter has dished out.

We're also going to a Red Sox game down there. I can't wait to see David-O again; he was my favorite Twin when he was actually in the line-up back in the day. Who remebers him hitting a home run in KC with a wrist broken on the previous at bat?

I've got to admit though, given his track record leading up to his departure I could see why the Twins wouldn't give him the money; just too many injuries.

Yes, I remember Ortiz hitting that homer - now that you mention it!

Pretty good game overall! Of course there were some mistakes primarily in Center (I thought). Alexi Casilla made a really nice play and throw from the hole though! 3 homers on offense isn't bad either. None of them came from a Twin on the team last year! Neshek looks good again! We gave up a 9th inning HR and they had the tying run at the plate, but otherwise a good game!

See if they can out perform the Yanks on Sunday on FSN! But now it's time to watch some HS Hockey and GOPHERS basketball tonight after work!

there is going to be mistakes, there is no doubt about it. Fact is they have the Grapefruit league to get that all out of there system before the real season starts. Lets hope!!

I think Young was a great addition to the team. I am picking Gomez will win the CF postion, at first I thought Pirdie should have it but have since changed my mind. Lamb, and Harris will cover the infield, and Buscher will be the reliever/pinch hitter.

Watching yesterdays game I thought Oswaldo had some good stuff for a closer, until he gave up the dinger in the 9th. Although he is really young, he has some time to control his pitches yet.

SP- Baker, Boof, Liriano, Hernandez, Blackburn to start the season. A month in, who knows!

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
