      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.

Sit Mauer down?

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think? If Detroit wins tonight (Saturday) and there is no chance for the Twins to win the division on Sunday, should Gardenhire keep Mauer on the bench Sunday? Unless Cano passes him up in tonights Yankee game, I think he should sit Mauer and make Cano earn it. Now on Sunday, the Yankee game starts 1 hour earlier than the Twins so Gardenhire could always play or DH Mauer if he needs another percentage point. They would need a staffer to keep tabs on Cano's at bats results during the game. The NY press will go off like a rocket (Get out the crying towel here) if Mauer sits Sunday and wins the batting title.

I think I would let him sit, let the New York press cry if he wins the batting title on the bench, he has more then enough at bats to support his average. There are several players on the Twins that a day off could prove helpful. Time to start thinking about post season.

Wow Jeter got hot today, 3 for 3 and sits at .345! Just 1 point behind Mauer. Best case scenario now is the weather. Rain forcast for Bronx, NY on Sunday is 100% chance of rain. Lets hope it keeps the bats out of Jeter and Cano's hands. They won't make up the game because it has no bearings on the playoff position for New York. They will give Jeter the MVP award anyhow, because the baseball writers will look at his last three games and compare him to the second comming of Christ.

Can't rest now. Since my post the Tigers have gone out and got themselves another loss. We are back to a one game win or lose the division title. The play of before the play offs!

That's a lot like lookin' for a walk instead of a base hit. Not Mauer's style, nor the Twins. Or the Kitties or Sox, or the hundred loss Royals for that matter.

I agree. The whole scenario changed with the Tigers loss last night. Mauer has to play today and personal awards have to take a back seat. With a chance to win the Division you got to play the "A" team Sunday.

WWTWD. Even Ted William's frozen dome would have said play.

People who take the easy way to anything are cake eaters and should be kicked in the crotch.

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      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.

      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!!

      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.
