Just got back from Minnesota

Recommended Posts

Commanche Jim

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!

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!!!

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald

      Same for me on Green by Princeton once it got dark the fish started biting. I was marking them and only had 4 bites while the sun was up.
