Tensions are starting to run a little high in here lately, call it post season fever or envy I would like you all to keep it positive and fun. I really don't like stepping in and I really haven't felt a need too. Ribbing is fine as long as it's not personal. You regulars have made monitoring this thread enjoyable and I would like to thank all of your for your baseball insight. With that I look forward to the rest of the post season and off season.

The Twins' owner could buy the Yankees, Mets and Red Sox, build each a new stadium and still stay on the Forbes 400 list of billionaires. What's he do here? Stand in line with his hand out after foreclosing on family farms.

I slept in today and finally got on board and now I am almost at a loss for words guys (although that might be because the Twins are down 2-0).

Many good posts today, especially by Tim and RunD.

Here's one I learned a long time ago that I try to live by:

It is more important to be judged not by what you say about others, but by what others say about you.

I am pretty darn sure most of us know it is all in fun.

I hope everyone knows my posts are meant that way and not as any personal attack on anyone.

Now, to lighten it up a bit, remember this too:

No fun having a battle of wits with an unarmed man.

And finally, for the post-season Tim, how's 'bout we start a thread to get to know our contributors a little more personally? Just a thought.

Windy City Walleye Hunter


I'm right with you, and you can personally attest to that fact. We have been slinging the mud north and south for the past 3 or 4 years on this site and I always mention it about 3 or 4 times a year that it is all in fun. My rivalry with the Cubbies has been documented back since I was 10 back in 69 and the Twinkie thing has been going for the past 4-5 years. I have said it before that it is just grown kids on this website just having fun. A little of the ole Eddie Haskell, giving the business! Nice timing for CNY to step in and just remind everybody to play nice though I can't blame them right now. If my team was playing like theirs in the post season I would be a little edgy myself. But you and I can just sit back and grin as both our teams took the early tee times this year! Windy

      Walleye numbers are strong, unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at Cliff

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff
