      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.

They say, the Twins said "any set back with Liriano that he would be done for the year to protect his future". Sounds like could be done for year, not good for playoff run. In turn I hope this won't affect teams psychy(sp) for rest of the year cause they figured on his help the rest of the way.

Just said he left with left elbow pain. Silva, Garza and Boof will need to step up. Garza is in now.

I heard the Radio guys say the early report from the dugout was that they were being extra cautious and are optimistic it's not major. frown.gifconfused.gif

He left with elbow pain they said. They are probably being cautious, but it's obvious he wasn't ready yet.

I hope Garza, Boof and even Silva can pick it up. With any luck Radke will be back for the playoffs and we can patch it together in the meantime.

DAMM! smirk.gif

Sounds like the pitch he did it on was a slider that hit the dirt in front of home. Maybe he miss threw the pitch which could aggrivate even a healthy elbow.

Everyone think good thoughts!!!

With any luck he can sit for a while and be ready to go for the playoffs.

The kids too young to have him throw his arm off already. Lots of pitching years to come for him.

Garza pitched really well today. Once again there was no run support. The whole team looked a little sloppy on the field today, kinda like the wind got knocked out of 'em.

Let's hope there is good news for Liriano.

Isn't the recurring elbow situation one of the reasons we were able to get him in the first place? Seems I read that somewhere? We'll see, but if he has a chronic elbow condition..... frown.gif

Boof Bonser was actually the prospect that we were after to go with Nathan from the Giants.

Liriano was a player to be named later and has turned into what he is today. At the time we got him from the Giants he had injury problems with his elbow.

They should have shut him down for the season after this first injury. Hindsight is 20/20 though. smirk.gif

Talk about a let down. Injured Liriano AND losing 1-0. I'm not holding my breath about Radke coming back either. Let's hope the team rallies and pulls together at Cleveland.

Heard reports Liriano heard something pop in the elbow. Some radio people are saying he's done and might be looking at Tommy John surgery, which would put him on the shelf possibly until 2008. Glad we didn't lock him up with a big contract like Joe Mays. I hope surgery is not needed. Maybe he will need to learn how to use another pitch without torquing his arm so much with the slider.

He is done for this year, for sure. No way are they going to take any more chances with the kid. Sure, it is a huge blow. But we did fairly well with a patchwork rotation minus 'Cisco. MAYBE we will be ok. Think positive and maybe Silva will actually earn his 2.5 million. Yes, he is making 2.5 large... We need him now more than ever.

Just heard the ESPN guys saying that they thought it was a torn ulnar collateral ligament in the elbow and the projected time off would be 18-24 months...OUCH! That's going to leave a mark!

I love this, let all the so-called experts keep saying how the Twins are finally done after losing Liriano. Well you know what, we just finished a month without him and still have a 1 1/2 game lead in the wild card.

These experts have said we were done when.... we were 12 games out in May and one of the worst teams in baseball, when Shannon Stewart went on the shelf, when Liriano got hurt the first time, when Radke's shoulder fell off, and now when Liriano goes down today. Just watch, Santana is going to carry this pitching staff and lead guys like Garza and Boof who are just young enough and cocky enough to not realize the magnitude of this race.

It's only going to make it sweeter when Windy's White Sox are sitting at home this fall watching the Twins and Tigers in the playoffs. Then again Windy it may not be all that bad, maybe AJ can call up some of his old friends at HOM Furniture here in Minnesota and get some "free cookies too!" for all his overpaid loser teammates as you watch the Twins go to the World Series.

This team is way too tough to just roll over now. Gardy's not going to let them sulk about Liriano, instead they are going to be inspired. Get ready boys, this is going to be a memorable stretch run!

montgriz-

Couldn't of said it better myself. The Twins are not a one man show. Bonser beat the Tigers and Silva is finally getting his sinker to sink. Funny how the national media thinks the Twins are done without frisco. Would they say the same about Boston losing Schilling or the White Sox losing Garland??? Probably not- but the real story is that both of those teams are DONE and Twins continue to lead the WC race. Sox fans-- when you come to the dome the last three games of the year-- Black Magic and the piranhas will cast you a final spell that leads to ,, "Wow, What a TEAM!"

Dudes you guys forget so easy... It's about

big market baseball that's why. Look the Yankees/Redsox series is this weekend and you would think it's the world series on ESPN with the hype and the fricken red sox are 10.5 games back, mad.gif it's sickening. mad.gif Let the Twins use it as fuel I say and keep kicking butt. ESPN has there thumbs up there sweeps/ratings sphincters grin.gif Go Twins!

Montana,

Nobody said the Twinks were done. Actually the ESPN guys who said it was the ulnar collateral ligament said that it would not affect the team and he actually said he thought the Twinks would get into the playoffs. It's just that they will have to do it without Lirai-NO. Windy!

You guys have had a great past few weeks without him. Why would it change? Probably more of an emotional problem than actually losing the pitcher. No baseball fan could ever be happy about this. It's a shame. Hope he comes back strong.

      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.
    • mrpike1973
      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      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!!  
    • fowldreams
      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.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
