8 posts in this topic

Online through MLB.com the best way to buy Twins tickets? Trying to get tickets for second and third game of season and the pickins are already slim. Not that I am shocked.

Thanks

Online works well. The cheapest is to go to the Twins Pro Shop and buy them there (fees are less). What has worked fairly well for my familly is to pick up the 6 for 5 packages and use those for the popular games early and late in the season. Then during the year we usually pick up Home Run Porch 1/2 price Tuesday tickets

When I lived in Kansas City, you could get Royals tickets at Hy-Vees, I wish the Twins would do something like that, it was very handy. There was a $1 convenience fee, well worth it.

We used eBay last year and got great seats at a great price.

Also, if you enjoy haggling, I get kind of a charge from getting tickets from those guys right outside the dome. If you are willing to wait until 1 minute before game time and the game isn't sold out you can get some deals.

I ended up getting some seats for game one in the Family Section. Wife and daughter volunteered to go to the mall for game two so I could get much better seat for myself. Now that'll cost me, but it's all good. smile.gif

The haggling thing works very well for Reds games, but they don't sell out often either.

PS- in case a few of you don't like to pay for parking around the dome- go to a bar across the street called Huberts before the game, they have free parking- but just don't park and walk, go in and have a beer or two, it's a great bar!

zamboni...Three of us are going to drive down to K.C. to see a Twins game at Kauffman stadium in Aug. or Sept. and I was wondering if you could recommend a hotel to stay in close to the park?

also...I drove a Zamboni for 22 years at Columbia Arena in Fridley. Are you a Zamboni driver?

Thanks, Ron.

There is no free parking at Huberts.

I agree great bar... Some GREAT memoribilia in there also. May even be able to buy a ticket or 2 around there

Funny little story about Sid Hartman and Huberts:

Years ago, ( the 80's) On more than 1 occasion Sid would walk in thru the kitchen---point at the cook---tell him he wanted a burger, and proceed to sit down at a occupied table to wait for his food!

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
