      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.

Just think if we had Shannon Stewart!

As good as we are now, just think where we'd be with Shannon Stewart in the line up hitting .300 or better. Shannon Stewart has always been one of my favorite players. He keeps his mouth shut and goes to work. He plays all out, running into walls getting clutch hits and whathave u. What did he do on his first game back from Injury this year?..only went 4 for 4!!!!!!! I hope there is a way to bring him back next year if we can!

I know he has injury issues, but alot of guys who were counted out have come back to have productive careers.

I have to aggree. There has been alot of situations where he would have been able to hit in the clutch, or at least better then situations where people are not getting it done. he will not be back next year i dont beleive, but if they are smart, they will sign him.

The only way I'd want Stewart back is a DH. By next year his arm will be so bad that runners will score from second base on a sacrifice fly. Bad thing is the Twins will never have a full time DH. They just like to use the spot in the order for rehab abs. Tough to get into a groove with inconsistant abs. Last year Lecroy would get a little something going and then wouldn't play for the better part of a week because someone would get pulled off the field to heal.

Honestly I don't think we would be much better off if Stewart was back in the lineup. The 4 runners Tyner threw out at would have been safe so that is atleast 3 extra runs in close games, plus Tyner would be the man you are sitting down to make room for Stewart and Tyner is hitting over .300 as well. The only thing Stewart would bring is a little more power but I don't think that makes up for his terrible arm.

Also he has been tried at DH a few times over his career and he can't do it. He has said he needs the routine of playing in the field to get into the groove at the plate.

For what Stewart will cost us its just not worth it for a player with a terrible arm and who is on the DL atleast twice a year. Once your feet go on that turf they will always bother you.

He'll be released, they need that money to be distributed elsewhere.

Well said nofishfisherman, the only thing you left out are the balls that Tyner gets to that Stewart won't, partly because of a little more speed, but mostly because he's much better at reading the ball & gets a good jump. I'd say he's as good of a defensive left fielder as I've seen in the league this year. It's like have Jacque back in left like he used to be.

I'm not bashing Stewart because I agree he's a fantastic hitter & a good guy, but there's no way he's back with the Twins. I don't think it makes sense if they could sign him for much less that I think it will take. Tyner has to start next year, I suppose if they don't resign Hunter you could make a case for Tyner in center & Stewart in left, but I don't think he's got much left in the tank. He's game, I just don't think his body is.

Sledneck, I think your as high with this post as you think I am about Mauer. My god a 2 month player and we have that already in Tyner in 3 weeks. 4 outfield assists in 3 weeks, more than Stewy in a career. Avg. about the same. Can we agree to dissagree without slamming each other? You will think i'm even crazier with this prediction, trade Francisco. He's a 2-3 year pitcher, with the arm angle, he's another TJ in a heartbeat. His value has already dropped. Great pitcher for now, but I would take a power 3rd baseman or left fielder for him soon. A big name player only.

My prediction. Stewart signs with another team next year, makes the all-star team and plays the whole season.

Stewart was moved to the 60-day DL to make rome for Nevin. Guess we've seen the last of him.

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      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... 
    • Jplante
      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.
