      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.

I don't agree on Bonds, all he can do is hit the long ball. There are better all around players then Bonds right now in the outfield positions.

Hard to argue with most of that lineup.

At SS, while Reyes is a fine choice, I would give an edge to Jimmy Rollins and Miguel Tejada. Tough call, though. You could probably make a case for all three.

In the OF, you could make a case for a lot of guys. Vlad Guerrero, Ichiro Suzuki, Alfonso Soriano...

Right now, I'd probably take Vlad over Bonds in your lineup.

And I'd probably go with Ortiz over Thome at DH.

And if Alex Rodriguez weren't on such a tear, Miguel Cabrera would be a good choice at 3B...but I can't make a case against A-Rod right now.

Lineup is very good.

A few changes I'd make.

Ichiro intead of Bonds. No better lead off hitter in the game.

Ivan Rodriguez for a catcher.

Drop schilling and I'd take Roy Hallady or Chris Carpenter, Oswalt, Clemens and maybe even Liriano.

"I don't agree on Bonds, all he can do is hit the long ball. There are better all around players then Bonds right now in the outfield positions."

Better check your data if you think he only hits the long ball. Substance assisted? Of course, but Bonds hits period, and he has his entire career. .300 career, approaching 3000 hits, 2000 RBIs. 43 years old, probaby not on roids now, and pitchers still fear him.

Great lineup overall, but your OF is very weak on defense. Manny and Bonds are not the best OF in the game today. Thome is good, but Ortiz is my DH. IMO. Schilling may not be a top ten pitcher today.

He may not be a top ten pitcher but if it were a game 7 I would want him out there. The OF "D" is weak but I like Manny just for being Manny. I think Bonds used to be a 40/40 guy back in the day. If I were to go for "D" in the OF I would put Hunter(MIN),A. Jones(ATL), and maybe Vlad(ANA).

I would take Santana and Schilling off the list.

Sorry to say, but I think the Iowa boys got it nailed.

one of the Iowa boys said Ivan as the catcher......i love Ivan but he is not the overall player he once was...still a dominant d but Mauer is almost as good if not better when it comes to protecting the plate itself and Joe is a better hitter.....Ivan would definatly be my back-up catcher though......The outfield can hit the ball but so can the rest of the line-up......would definatly have Vlad over Manny both can hit the snot out of the ball but Vlad has one of the strongest arms in baseball!!!

Absolutely agree with Ozzie. As I stated at length on other threads, I believe Mauer needs a few more seasons to prove he is a better "All Time" career catcher. But best in the game today? It isn't even arguable. That goes to Joe. Ivan may have a bit more power. I can't think of any other area he might be a little better currently.

And Vlad is probably the best OF many people have never heard of. Underated for sure.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      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.
