We don't start until June here in central New York, but I play Tuesday and tourneys through out the season and only have a 1 night a week league and that team is LaPub/The Garage, regular season champs 2007. Were going over the roster already, many changes and more of our tournament guys to keep some consistency. I'll be 44 in Jun and still love playing... Alot of leagues are going aluminum only here, composites will be a 90% no-no in the stae this year and all I can say is, "It's about time!"

I will continue as an ASA Umpire, enjoyed that last year in my first full season and can honestly say that I blew two calls all season, not bad when you figure I did over 800 innings..

Can't wait to get started back playing.. Let's have those bat lists...

Is there anybody in the Farmington, Lakeville, Rosemount, Apple Valley area that is looking for another player for their team. Ive played outfield for the last 3 years in south st. paul and bloomington. I recently moved to farmington and looking to get on a team. I'd be willing to do a tryout

Good to see another "Blue" on the forums. You may have only "blown" 2, but I can't believe you didn't miss more than that grin.gif

Coach those are blatant misses, you know when you wiff so bad and you feel embarassed, you want to reverse the call. I remember them both, one was a backside tag coming to third from the outfield that I was late getting too. And the second was a call at first base on a routine groundball, the runner was a step and a half past the bag... They laughed it off fortunately.. Thank God I knew some of the guys on that team, they realized 30 min. prior to the game I just dropped my son Tyler off to become a U.S. Marine

Yeah, I know what that is like. Its too bad you can't wait like 10 seconds on calls like that because after they replay in your head 5 times, you know what call you should make! My worst ever is... bottom of the 7th, 2 outs, bases loaded, tie game. It is a co-ed league and a woman is up to bat. She hits a rather meaningless soft grounder down the third base line. She had done it every at bat previously and it is about 10 feet foul, when I call it "Foul ball"... well in proceeds to hit a foothole, hop straight toward the bag, clip the corner of the bag, popping it in to left field. I had already called it dead, so no going back. Took away the game winning hit. They eventually lost in extra innings. I walked backwards to the car that night!! grin.gif

Hey Coach,

That was my wife you took that hit away from...her only hit of the season which ended up being her career...that's right you took away her one and only lifetime hit...She is still mad about that one and talks about it often!!

Just kidding -- That is good story...would of like to been there to see that one happen!!

Thanks for sharing -- only a month away now and we will be playing!!

      We have Hoey, but it's easier to go off the Warroad access to get to where we normally go.

      Nice video. Thank you @papadarv NOTE:We will be updating the forums and all videos uploaded here will go straight to a player that folks can just click and watch instead of downloading and watching.

      Out Saturday afternoon doing some sight fishing with my camera on one of Chisago County lakes. Water was a bit dirty and with 26 inches of ice camera clarity was a bit lacking. Did get some nice video of the afternoon. Battery augers failed after a couple of holes so went with the Eskimo gas. Lots of fish above the weeds in 10 FOW.  EazyCam site fishingHB.mp4

      Weather forecast looks to be consistent starting Wednesday with average temps in the  mid 20's. Consistency typically good.  Right now anglers are working fish hard and putting fish in the pail. Electronics are playing a huge roll as some walleyes suspended as far as 10 feet below the ice. Most resorts are out in 31' with some in a touch shallower. More saugers in deep mud with walleyes shallower. Reefs to the west also productive with a few perch being pulled in as well. Rattle and flutter action spoons doing well. Gold, pink, and other glow colors best.  Pike already active in shallow water.  Auger extension needed if fishing on your own with 3+ feet of ice in most areas.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail. Ice houses allowed to be left on lake through March 31st, walleyes open through April 14, pike all year.   Rainy River pushing out some bigger walleyes in the morning/evening with an occasional sturgeon.  Local fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle continues to put nice fish in the bucket. Walleyes and saugers in good numbers.  20-24' early and late, 26-30' during day.  In Ontario waters, crappies in deeper holes of 28-32' on light tackle set ups. Mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper, catch fish and move on.  Walleyes all over!  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?
    • Hoey
      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.  
    • Hoey
      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.  
    • Hoey
      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
