Thank you Joe!

Torre that is for pitching to our Joe last nite. But didn't understand the 2 bunts in his prior AB's. A nice way to end a horribly played series by our club, base running, pitching, defense and hitting pretty much stunk the whole series. Hopefully Joe's hit will carry over for a sweep of the Ray's.

Both bunts were explained in a Star Trib article.

Apparently Joe wasn't seeing the ball well for some reason so when he was given the sign to get the runner over to second he bunted beucase he thought it was the best chance he had to getting the runner in position to score.

I like the fact that he was able to recognize that he hasn't been seeing the ball well and made a choice based on that to work around it by bunting. He said he also knew that Cuddy had been hitting better lately so he figured if I can just bunt the runner over Cuddy has a better chance at bringing him home.

Bunting is a neglected art. How often we have we seen the Twins fail in this fundamental part of the game? Sure, you expect the batting champ to feel like he can drive the guy home instead, but fact is even batting champs are out 6-7 times out of 10. With our knack for wasting RISP/0 out chances, I was happy to see Cuddy come up only "needing" a sac fly instead of 1 out runner still at second. Although a "productive out" on a ball pulled to the right side would have done the trick too, I say good for Joe.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
