I am at a loss...

11 posts in this topic

Were these Redbirds sand bagging? Was the triumphant return of Jim Edmonds and David Eckstein a jump start to a team on life support? Or is it just a little tease til they break my heart yet again?

As for Carpenter.... One word sums it up., Filthy laugh.gif

Windy - I'll put my boy Pujols up against the big hurt his first 6 seasons everyday of the week and twice on Sunday grin.gif

Now I can relax and root against the Yanks, hey one can dream of the Tigers pulling the big upset even though I doubt it. But then again everyone picked against the Cards grin.gif

Gotta say Frank is maybe more scary to see in the box whenever a HR is needed, but I'm gonna have to add a few others that were pretty darn good from early on in their careers and have continued for years to be pretty darn good. No doubt Albert is phenomenal (sp?), but a few other all-around greats are Griffey Jr and A-Rod and they are locks for the Hall in my mind.

Of course they weren't sand-bagging this is baseball anything can and will happen, remember last year the whitesox had one of if not the biggest collapse in Baseball history they were on pace to break the all time wins in a season record, long story short they didn't even win a 100 games and were terrible the last 2 months of the season.

Playoffs started and the SOX SMOKED everybody....

So even though this Cardinal Team doesn't even come close to making the top 10 all time Cardinal teams, they have chance to win it all....... grin.gif

I know it is better than Losing, but I propose a new slogan for the Cards --- "Winning Boring"?

      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! :):)

      They were really slow today. I fished hard all day and didn't manage much. Went over tons of fish and they weren't active at all. Should get better as the weekend gets closer...I hope

    • Hello Friends:

      Looking for some help as I've been up here since yesterday morning and only two 22" walleyes. I've fished fairly hard (5 or 6 hours) and tried all of my normal spots in Frazer/Smarts/Narrows area using all presentations with minnows and crawlers. Would love to have a walleye dinner (couple of 15's) for my black lab and I tomorrow night and any suggestions would be welcomed.

      I'm not looking for spots, but general depth and bait.

      Thanks guys

      Andy

      It is great.  I don't know if they are still doing grumpy gary chicken this time of year but it is good.  They have specials on various nights, at least in summer.

      Dennis Anderson, Outdoor writer for the Minneapolis Tribune had a nice write up on the duck opener at Pelican. In addition there were some locals quoted on duck hunting there. Sounds like the ducks are back, and they have the water levels well under control.
