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.

Geno,

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

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
