I know its too late, and I know my personal opinion don't mean a hill of beans to the politicians, but I always thought a GREAT place for the Twins stadium would be right on the river, Minneapolis or St Paul side, I don't care. The reason I like this idea is like in San Francisco- make a water bound home run kind of cool and special. Make it like 500 feet out, put either the right or left field wall out there. PS- to pay for a retractable roof- put a toll road up on 94 and Hwy 36, make the Wisconsin people that come over for jobs, but want cheaper housing pay for it.

Brookdale shopping center is in nowhere land? It's only 5 minutes north of where their talking about putting the stadium now.

This site would be like the old Met. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to tailgate before games in the parking lot again?

I agree building in the outer parts of the metro would have its bennifits, such as- tailgating, and extra parking, and if they build it in places other then downtown it would be easier to get to, meaning less downtown traffic, drive in and drive out. They would put a rail system in , Im sure! But it will never happen, it will be built where they have plans to do it now, and in 10 years they will be whinning they need a new one built in a better and bigger area, I thought alot of it had to do with parking revenue, they still wont be getting that, building where they have plans now.

Personally, I think they got the location right, a downtown stadium with the skyline background will be awesome. Plus you have great after-game entertainment right there by Target Center. Now they just need to get this land deal worked out, so they can start building. However, If they don't put a retractable roof on the stadium they are nuts. If they don't put one on right away, I can guarantee they'll have one on within the first 10 years at about 3x the original cost to the tax-payers.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
