      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.

Twins win+Tiger loss tonight =first place in AL central

With the momentum of our win against Boston last night combined with the Sox pistol-whipping the sinking Tigers last night, I like our chances of snagging the division lead from the Tigers. Sweet! Just hope I don't eat crow pie for breakfast tomorrow morn... crazy.gif

Indeed Buzz, indeed! What do you think about tonight? BTW, you been out fishing for the BIGGUNS lately? I haven't been out because of boat limitations, but I would suggest that you try that one area I showed you last year for the next couple weeks wink.gif.

WE need to get out again and hit Tonka! I was hoping Saturday morning would work out, I'm still not certain. If I can get out, I will let you know... are you available this Saturday morning? I haven't had alot of luck this year muskie fishing, but then again I'm usually taking photo's. shocked.gifwink.gif

About tonight, I see Morneau hitting a bomb off of Schilling with Boof keeping the spiralling Sox off balance. Twins 5 Red Sox 3

Available? yes! As you can see by my avatar, my boat is no match for yours. Actually, I've been plagued by boat motor problemas all year mad.gif. Fortunately I'll have things up and running again by next week, so that's good. Yeah, just let me know, buzz, and hopefully we'll get a big toothy in the boat. You still got my e-mail address?

No call on the Tiger/Sox game?

Yes, I have it and will let you know by Friday okay. I stole your muskie candy holder idea - PVC tubes in a bucket! It works out nicely!

I'd hope the White Sox win bigtime! 8 - 2

Better than paying outragous prices for conventional musky candy holders...

With a guy named Boof going against Shilling? Tigers will be 1 1/2 up by midnite. I hear crow tastes good if you put enough salt on it.

Wishful thinking... I look at it more like the Twins have always hit fastball pitchers well, including Schilling and Boof is pitching very well.... on the other hand Judy garland is also pitching well and Bonderbunk isn't!! So lets just say I see the Twins 1/2 game up... lets see who's right? wink.gif

How about a half game? If they hold the lead as of now. If not, I hope you like your crow...

Are you guys ever gonna lose? Not sure either of us are eating crow this morning. We both misses by just a litle bit. Tigers actually player small ball last nite. Couple Sac Bunts, some hit and runs, and then another home run by Mags (third of the series). Screwy one game in Baltimore this afternoon and start a three game series in KC tomorrow. We've won eleven of twelve against KC this year. I'm not sure six more against them is a good thing.

Sox are gone. Two team race. Question --- would you rather play the Yankees in a five game series or Seven?

Bobby Bass is right on!! All I can say is that the Twins were so patient against Schilling last night... he was up to 80 something pitches in the 4th inning and had to be taken out because of his pitch count! We had him on the ropes more innings than not, but give him credit for getting out of tough situations like a true veteran stud does. Also, has anybody on the Twins hit a nicer looking homerun this year than the one Torri parked out on Landsdowne street in the 8th inning last night?! My gahd!! What a bomb!! One more thing, did anybody else here Bert say in like the 7th inning that the game was so close that it felt like one that the Twins would come back and win? What a call!! Right now nobody knows our young guns ie... Garza, Bonser, Baker & Neshek and that MIGHT bode well for us, who knows.... I'd still love to have Liriano and Radke.

How about that one last night Buzz!

As bad as Torii was earlier, he has been great since he came back.

That's 3 clutch homers in less than a week!! Nice to see. Bonser was also terrific along with the bullpen. The Sox are doing their slide big-time. I would have thought they could have at least won a home series against a team they've owned all year long and with their most consitent pitcher on the mound. - guess not grin.gif

Ha Ha you guys funny tongue.gif. Silence yesterday, but now that I gotta eat crow crow pie I can't shut you all up. Ya know, crow doesn't taste bad with a little BBQ sauce. Really, it's only a matter of time before the Twins take the lead and stay there. I'm quite confident of this, and say it at the risk of wiping more future crow off my face...

Willy, Torri has been so clutch and last nights bomb was the sweetest HR of the season!

While RJ notes that MN is hot (W4), nobody even mentions the race for 5th in the NL Central....Pitt has W5 now. Cubs don't have a chance to evade the cellar if they keep winning.

I am not going to count out the White Sox quite yet. I remember what happened all too well at the end of last year with Indians falling on its face and Chicago winning the division. Highly unlikely, yes, impossible, no.

I wouldn't count them out yet either, heck they only lost to a poor Seattle team 9-0 last night! Can't wait to see them bring that "A" game out tonight. tongue.gif

I am officially counting them out. They aren't going anywhere. The slide is in full force and there is no way they get out of it. They have given up.

Only thing we have to worry about now is if we play at home for our first playoff game or on the road.

Down to Earth

Magic number for the Twins in the Wild Card is at 5 now. There would have to be a MAJOR Twins collapse and a MAJOR win streak by the Sox for them to get into the playoffs. Don't see either happening right now. I just checked and the Twins are +6 in the loss column on the White Sox. If I figure it out the Twins have to go 4-6 and the Sox would have to win out.

Besides we need to be focussing on the Tigers not the Sox.

Agreed. The wild card would be ok, but the division is what we want. Therefore, we want Detroit and not the Sux.

How cool would home field advantage be!??!?!?

What do you guys think about the possibility that the last game of the season might mean the division? We would have Santana going. Would you want him to pitch and win the division, or rest and start game one of a playoff series?

Hopefully it doesn't come to that, but I rest him so that he can be used twice in a playoff series if he is needed. Also, if he were to loose, I don't really want anybody else on the hill game one in Yankee stadium other than Yo.

      The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.

      Hey all, Heading to Mille Lacs tomorrow.  What has been the hot bait?  Shiners, fatheads??? Flash "Set the Hook"
    • Hoey
      There are notes in some of the other recent LOTW posts on Knights/Bridges reefs.  I have no personal recent experience to share at this time.

      Our group is coming up March 10-13 this year instead of the typical mid-Feb trip.  We usually hit the reefs/islands in Feb with reasonable success, so I'm curious if that pattern is going at the moment.  Never fished LOW in mid-March, so we're not exactly sure how to approach things.  The current reports sound a bit slow at the moment, which probably isn't all that unusual for this time of year.  If anyone has any first hand knowledge of the reef/island bite, you can either response or PM me.  Thx.
    • kfk
      I like to fish a frozen shiner along with a live fathead on a single hook.  Even though the shiner is dead, I think the movement of the fathead creates the illusion that it's a live shiner.  It's worked for me many times anyway and it's usually better than either a frozen shiner or fathead by themselves.
    • opsirc
      Begining to think it's going too be a really bad year.  Couples days ago was out, could not get anything to bite, switched up lures half dozen times. Did not help

      Darn you guys!!   How am I supposed to stay at work and pretend to be interested now? There's nothing better than bow hunting turkeys in the spring after a long winter!

      Hey all just a reminder you will need a new license March 1!! Well it looks like we should be ice fishing for another month or more. There is some coming, so if you need to get you house off the lake it might be wise do it now. bites: green crappies, little elk gills sorting but you will catch them eaters, skogman has good from numbers of gills and crappies, and Lori lake for crappies. the turkey fever is starting to set in for me

      Hi @Rick, I'm also looking to take my family out this weekend. I  have a 3/4 ton with a 8x24 ice castle. Was looking at Shields or German. Is it pretty safe with my rig? I know some of these smaller lakes are aerated and can have some soft spots. Just want to be extra safe with the family. Also, the fishing been ok down there? Thanks in advance! Justin

      Hey @jlang_04, i'm looking to take my kids down that area and was curious how's the ice for a 3/4 ton with a ice castle 8x24. I'm sure the ice is thick enough but I also know some lakes are aerated or have current and the ice can be soft in some spots. So I just want to be safe with my family. Also, how's the fishing down there?  Thanks, Justin
