Wind dying down

8 posts in this topic

Where are ya Windy? I'd like to hear from ya a little bit. Sox are healthy and not living up to their championship status, and the poor little punch and judy Twins are plagued with injuries, yet are passing by the World champs and now have the division in their sights with a big series coming up this weekend at the baggy dome.

Any thoughts? I still think the WC is going to come down to that last series of the year, but I could be wrong? grin.gif

Yep, I had too much respect for him I think, and gave him too much credit. Haven't heard much at all from him since his famous prediction before his fishing vac. Hey, wait a minute, doesn't Windy always say it's like a rollercoaster? I guess he can't take the "downs" as well as he'd like us to believe. Now I'm starting to think that all you guys who claim he only struts when the WSox are rolling uphill might be right after all.

C'mon Windy, own-up to reality and how your team has been PUTTING IT ON THE BOARD lately. Man, I'm starting to like that saying after all. It is so great to hear the dejection in that smug-toned arse Harrelson. Last night it was all "if you had told me....." about how the BoSox could shutout the WSox the first 4-5 innings in 2 straight. Man, it was beautiful. Not to mention how Dye has cooled off. Shoot, I'm not even afeard anymore when Crede comes to the plate.

Here's my prediction: So long as the WSox are outta the WCard, we won't be hearing anything from our "third" city brethren. He just can't bring himself to admit defeat.

Buzz, if you don't have a new running mate by now.......

And I forget our other WSox fan's handle - the guy from MN who visits Chi-town - haven't heard much from him either I don't think. Where are you?

Is today really ANOTHER chance this year the WSox will be SWEPT? C'mon BoSox!

I think he must be back up to Cass lake... grin.gifblush.gif

I can't believe the Twins are actually ahead of the Champs with all the triple A pitchers we've been marching out to the mound and the fact that radke is probably done for the year, Liriano has been out for a while and no Stewart all year.... To think the Twins have the best record in the majors since the beginning of June is crazy... and in the toughest division in baseball at that.

Classic Sled!!

I for one am very impressed with the way Boof has pitched in a time that we NEED good outings. Our bullpen is the best the league has seen for some number of years.

Just think, every time Silva is on the mound is an auto-loss and we are still leading the WC going into the last few weeks of the year.

I just wish ole Windy would come out of hiding and let us know where he sits or in this case hides. grin.gif

      Zach-

      I have been making annual ice fishing trips with friends for about 12 years ago.  We have tried LOTW, Mille Lacs, Red and one other lake that happened to be where we could use a free cabin for a weekend.  With that one exception for the free cabin, we have also rented sleepers.

      We have never made it to Devils Lake, but it is on my personal bucket list just because of the possibility of those monster perch.

      Six years ago, we ended up back on Red and no longer consider any other option.  Here's why:

      • This fishing is good.
      • The Petrowske family are wonderful hosts.
      • No other resort that we have used has come close to being wonderful hosts.  They just didn't put any effort into it.

      Now, I don't know how that you translate to your running portables, but I have never been disappointed with our trips to URL.

      Hope that helps.

      Headed UP NORTH.

      Leaving for Athabasca tomorrow. My trip of a lifetime was there about a decade ago. My buddy Herb and I caught many BIG lake trout about this same time of year. Sadly I could get nobody to go with me since it was a spur of the moment decision. A camping trip I was supposed to be on to Reindeer Lake got called off (not by me) at the last minute. I was bummed so started looking around for other far away big trout and pike lakes.

      Here are pictures from my best laker trip ever. Hopefully this one will be even better!

      Be back to Rainy around the 10th. Herb wants to try Mille Lacs for bass when I get back. Any tips for that lake in mid-October appreciated. Course it will be hard to pry me off Rainy now that the bass are starting to school up.

      Usually we skip the the river until later in the year but it was the cleanest water we found and the only place we caught any fish. Heading out now to give it another try.

      Close to home is possible, try those places first?  I will be out this weekend (if this cold doesnt kill me first)  Better luck next time fins

    • Ok so every year Try to get the guys from work on a fishing trip. Trying to decide on where to go we usually rent a cabin and run portables.

      I am thinking Devils lake, LOW, or Red

      Devils we would do the lodge ice house package because the deal is too good to mess with bringing a trailer and sled or wheelers with.

       

      what would you choose and any other suggestions Leech or Vermillion?

    • I plan on taking all my ice fishing equipment out of my shed this week I cant wait

      Cool nights and only a few warming hours each day have water temps coming down into the 50s this week.  This is actually pretty normal for the last week of September so there is nothing to odd here. 
       
      The catfish have slowed down over the past few days with this cool off.  They are still around to catch.  They are hanging near structure, usually on the drop off to the channel right next to it.  They are also on the softer side of the current in holes.  It seems that longer sit times are in order this week to allow the fish to come out, find and decide to eat the bait.
       

      Sucker seems to be the bait of choice right now.  Frogs just have not been getting any attention.

      From the fall Pelican Lakes Association newsletter - DNR Fisheries Update:

      You may have heard about the 454 adult cormorantsthat were removed from Gooseberrry Island this May by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Unit under a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  DNR staff looked at the stomach contents of 30 birds. Eleven of those birds had stomach contents including: 38 perch (mostly 4- inchers), 7 spot-tail shiners, 7 bluegills, 6 crappies, 1 rock bass, 1 pike, and zero walleyes.

      Thanks for the Update.  Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :):)
