      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Now that Radke finally threw in the towel its time to come up with a new BEACHBALLER and I will nominate Beachballer Jesse Crain this guy is a BUM every time he comes in you might as well shut the game off because he will blow it now I know some of you on this board will reach out and give him a big hug and defend him but the truth is no one wanted him in the off season and now you know why I for one say dump this bum before its too late.

Good Post. Im with you. I dont understand why this guy (Crane) is defended. He has 2 pitches....balls and HRs.

In all fairness to Radke, I think they should make him a pitching coach in one of their minor league systems, and promote him to the big league level when Rick Andersen retires or moves on to a different team. Every pitcher on the Twins squad, first and foremost Santana, have said they learned alot from Brad.

Another Crain beachball, taking the air out of the (almost) Twins comeback, compliments of the Tropicana catwalk ground rule... and he may have passed Sidney (Does This Sweat Make My Face Look Fat?) Ponson in HR per IP with that one...

Let me guess... you were in line at the concession stand during the 1st inning of every game he pitched? smirk.gif

Overall, a good career, but it's easy for folks to remember the shaky starts, and the stats bear that out. Isolating the first 15 pitches of each of the 378 games Radke pitched in his career: 300.1 IP, 375 hits - 57 of which were HRs - a .305 batting average against. The only time his BAA was higher (.315) was during pitches 121-135 (27 games). An aside: Radke threw 136 pitches once in his career: walked the guy and was lifted. (Don'tcha just love yahoo career sports stats?) smile.gif

I think the most significant stat. you mentioned was 378 games piched. He will never be in the Hall but 378 puts him ahead of the vast majority of all the pitchers in history. He had to have been doing something right. Old Sneller

Well, he's probably above the median -- 377 starts means taking the ball every 5th day for 12 years -- but he's a long way off of the leader board:

Cy Young 815

Nolan Ryan 773

Don Sutton 756

Phil Niekro 716

Steve Carlton 709

Tommy John 700

Roger Clemens 690

Gaylord Perry 690

Pud Galvin 688

Bert Blyleven 685

Greg Maddux 673

Walter Johnson 666

Warren Spahn 665

Tom Seaver 647

Tom Glavine 635

Jim Kaat 625

Had to go to retrosheet for that one... tongue.gif

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
