Tigers got all that MOJO -- We're home free! (ya...right)

Big win last night. Believe the SOX are out of it. Two team race for the Division. Loser gets the Yankees.

Chicago with it's huge payroll will go down as a big disappointment in 2006 by not getting back to where all the so-called experts expected them to be... in the playoffs and World Series.... they could still turn it around, but time is running out on Windy's boys of summer.

Just proves that last year was a fluke. The sox always fade come august and sept...its just the make up of who they are. They almost blew it last year but played well enough (and other teams in div, poor enough) to make it into the playoffs on fumes. Their dreams usually come to a crashing end with a series in Minnesota too bad it doesnt look like those games will mean much for them at this point.

Hey Buzz, remember what you said yesterday? Well, the WSox got the 1 out of the way now but I don't think they're gonna get the 12.

Very nice story there Sled.

Mr. MOJO rising..........

Anyways, I'm watching the game last night and they show the pics of the 3-4-5 (Dye, Thome, Konerko) so I know nothings gonna go wrong that inning, then later I see that Podsednik is pinch-hitting and I'm like, who the he** is HE pinch-hitting for? I know I AIN'T IN THERE so that poor guy must be a real bum!

Windy, you shoveling any dirt yet?

Geez, wonder if we'll ever hear from Windy again...he's gotta hope the WSox win at least one of their last 12.......AFTER the WCard is clinched I hope of course.

I'm a thinkin' that the people of Chicago are going to hop on the Bears bandwagon and hope they can salvage the end of summer/fall season for them as their White Sox are faltering big time. I could be wrong, but I suspect you'll stop hearing White Sox banter and it will turn to Bears this and Bears that.... I've been wrong before, we'll seeeeeeeeeee. grin.gif

Buzz,

Like I have said before, "Any port in a storm"! I did my duty and paid my respects to my beloved at the funeral last night. I would bet my last dollar that you will not see Mr. Buehrle wearing the black and silver next year. I think he has already been fitted for two red birdies on the front of his jersey. But to put a positive "Windy" spin on the game, at least I saw the Sox pull off a triple play and Thome did get his 40th tater. So to validate what my running mate and "brother from another mother" said....BEAR DOWN CHICAGO BEARS! Windy

This really shouldn't come as a surprise to most WhiteSox fans that were actually following the team before they won their first WS in 80 years.

They have consistently collapsed towards the end of the season, with last year being an abberation.

The three straight div. titles that the Twins won were supposed to be won by the Sox. "ON PAPER", they were supposed to be better, but when you played the games, they weren't.

Hopefully the Tig's can falter enough for the Twins to win the div. and continue the dominance they have shown since the 2002 season, minus 2005 when the Sox fluked out and won it all.

PS - The Bears aren't that great either. grin.gif Although they are probably better than the Vikes.

Windy, you did your boys proud and stood in here tall one against all and held your own. Even your final thoughts show a true WSox love so I give you a big "Attaboy Windy" - spinning it like we know you can. Remember who their other TriplePlay this yr was against?

Listen, it's not so bad to be out of it. I still root for my Cubbies and they got 3 chances EVERY year to make the playoffs: slim, fat, and none!

Well guys....I leave it to group concsious (sp?):

Do I root FOR the WSox tonight?

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.

      Did you access that stretch from Wilson Park, or below Cathedral High School @eyeguy 54?  
    • phishnerd
      I guess a crayfish pattern might work up there eh?
    • eyeguy 54
      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait
