      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.

Ok, I realize he will probably win the batting title, good overall defensive catcher, good eye at the plate, calls a good game etc. But, the guy has been a bum the last 2 weeks when we need him. He says he's tired. Tell that to Carlton Fisk, Johnny Bench, Ivan Rodriquez etc. I tell you what, you walk my mail route 9 miles a day for a week and I'll gladly trade with you.

He's a Mn boy and gets away with sympathy. He'll play around 125 games or so at catcher, yeah bum knee, but the kid is only 23. He is the 4th best player on our team- Nathan, Cuddy, Morneau. start producing, he's a good 2 or 6 hitter and that's it. Done.

I would say Mauer has been struggling for more than two weeks. I would say for over a month. I can only think of one time as of late when he had a multiple hit game. I think that was last week when he was 3-5 with 4rbi's.

There is a reason that it has been like 60 years since a catcher has won the batting title. Catcher is the most demanding position on the field, you take a beating and it tires you out over 162 games.

The next time someone who is hitting .355 is called a bum I might just lose it. Get a clue, so he had a bad stretch of games, every single player in MLB has a bad stretch thats why no one else is any where near Mauers average right now. You guys are dang hard to please aren't you. Are you only happy if he hits .400 with 50 HR's and 200 RBI's? Or will .350 and leading the majors in average be good enough for you?

When call up's come it looks like the Twins will be adding a 3rd catcher, He will get a rest then, I think he will doing a little more DHing then. I agree he is doing a fine job at a very demanding position. Has MN ever had a catcher with anything close to his numbers?

Only a few teams in all of baseball have ever had a catcher with his kind of numbers.

Ask Fisk, Pudge or Bench if they ever had a slump. The answer would be yes. Now ask them, if they were ever batting .355 during said slump. The answer would be no.

I am sure your job is demanding. But next summer when it is about 90 degrees go stand out in the sun and put on a platic helmet, mask, chest protector, and shin guards. Squat up and down for 3 hours, and about every 15 squats or so take a 90 mph fastball of your arm, mask, or thigh. During those three hours you must sprint to back up first base about 20 times. Plus do a couple of wind sprints for each at bat.

After you have done all this ask youself if you are tired. Done.

I am guessing it refers to Mauer being the Twins savior. Its a bit of a stretch if you ask me. As soon as I see Mauer walking on water and turning water into wine I'll let you all know.

Right now all Mauer can do is hit .350 which is good but I think Jesus could atleast hit .400 if he really tried.

Twins should trade Mauer to another team for a better hitting catcher. Oh wait ....... I guess there aren't any. I was rather surprised to find a thread like this on what basically amounts to a Twins fan forum. confused.gif

The way it works is one guy posts some ridiculously stupid comment about how bad Mauer is and then we never hear from him again. What happened is he probably saw one bad play and then over reacts and comes here to post his disgust with Mauer, either that or he is a white sox fan and is trying to anger us twins fans. If that is the case you can't help but feel bad for the guy since he will spend the rest of his life being wrong.

I think someone is cranky because the Twins have lost two in a row to KC. Four words--best catcher in baseball. 'Nuff said.

Why get anybody with Redmond around....3-4 today, Twins win Mauer DNP - coinkydink? I think not, nyuk nyuk.

Tigers lose. Now if only TB can untie their game against the WSox it'll be a good day again for Minn faithful.............

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
