Just got back from Minnesota

16 posts in this topic

Just got back from a week of touring Minnesota. Few days on Mille Lacs, few on Cass......lots of family stuff, but still managed to get on the lake and boat 2 muskies. Also, my son caught his first and second perch on his own.

Needless to say, it was entertaining watching the sports segments on the 10:00 news up there. "Twins Push for the Playoffs" was the headline on just about every news station starting around last Tuesday.

After this weekend debacle, what's the sports segments saying now?

Commanche,

Catch all the big girls you want in Cass, just leave the "eyes" to your ole pale Windy. I leave in 4 days for two weeks on Cass. Hooking up with Brian for 2 day trips and one night booze cruize with my son and a cooler of DOS EQUIS for Mr. Jones. Keep our beloved in shape while I go do battle in the Land of Twink. How am I going to stop myself from asking the bartender at Pike Hole to turn on our beloved Pale Hose. Magic Number is 59, Twins Magic Number is 911.

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES! Windy

Think about this one..........for the Twins to catch the Sox and create this up and coming collapse...........If the Sox just play .500 ball for 3 weeks, the Twins would have to win every single game during that span. That would mean they'd have to win 20 in a row.

You never know. The Sox had they're worst stretch of 20 games (May 9th thru the 30th)......They're worst stretch of the season. They went 10-10..........so anything's possible.

Math is certainly not on the Twins side, but stranger things have happened to my Cubbies ('69 Mets, Bartman). And we do have that whole "Windy being in MN for 2 weeks" thing going for us like last year so you never know.

Ah, but you forgot one thing, Gene Gene My Cubbie-Loving Machine. This year I have the secret weapon, THE INJUN!

I am making Commanche Jim the Official Class Monitor while I am gone for the two weeks (actually three weeks since I am taking the wife to Vegas after we get back from Minn for 4 nights to see Barry Manilow (I will be drinking heavily to get thru that one, but, it's her birthday so what you gonna do, right? Any way, I expect a full report from my buddy Commanche when I get back and I expect an emergency meeting if the Twinks get within 8 games of my beloved Pale Hose. Have at it Twinkie-Lovers, I am outta here as of tomorrow!

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES! Windy

It's no joke Sled. She loves Barry for some ungodly reason so I got some good tix to the show and we will be watching Barely Manenough sing his songs, I will be drinking heavily, the wife will be watching Barry. Luckily the other 3 nights will be spent at the Texas Hold `Em Table. I try to keep winning at the poker table while my wife keeps pouring money into the one armed bandits. Hey, only in Vegas! Anyway, got to go. MAGIC NUMBER 57!!!

      Sounds like my problem, Thanks

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow     
    • otterman91105
      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
