Hey Geno,

It's looking like May will be Silver and Black once again. Lots riding on this weekend. Care to make a side bet, maybe to cover your upcoming loss??? Hee Hee

Let's say an additional one week avatar bet if either team sweeps, but you have to agree to it at The Cell as well as Wiggly Field! Bet???

Hey Geno,

Look's like "Flukie" did it again. 3-2 record, 3.18 ERA, compared to the great YO-Han, 4-4 record 3.26 ERA. I don't know Geno. Are you still going with the Fluke label???

Hey Geno,

You mentioned you wanted Aardsma back, you can have him after the way he tossed yesterday but you have to keep Cotts with him and let him keep tossing those beachballs up to my beloved Pale Hose. I guess AJ got back for the grand salami that D Lee hit.

Don't mean to get in the middle of the whole "South-Side, North-Side" battle here, (BTW-North Side Rules) but Johans team can't score him any runs.

Where's Geno? I was looking forward to a little Monday morning civil war smack talk. Good series guys. Gotta love Wrigley, where pitchers are required to check their ERA at the door.

Spent the weekend away at my sis' place chasing pannies and cats and didn't get to see any of the series.....but I did hear something about how on Sunday the WSox were gonna try to make the Cubs keep their brooms in the closet?????

If only the Cubbies could have swept, I would have gladly taken a little side-action Windy. (I'll trade you Wuertz for Aardsma and gladly keep Cotts over Lohman).

Well Geno, my friend,

Here sits ole Windy on his 48th birthday and all the presents have been opened...except 1. As I look at my trusty Chicago Tribune (the only conservative paper in The Windy) and I glance at the sports page, I see one thing....

WE SUCK LESS THAN YOU!! Pay up old man, let's see that shiny black and silver Championship ring for the next week!!!

Blah Ha Ha Ha

I don't know there Windy. If the Sox lose tonight, then I believe both teams would have won the same number of games in May so i call it a tie then, don'tcha think? And by virtue of the 2 out of 3 the Cubbies took from the WSox, I would get the tiebreaker, no?

Riddle me this oh wise one. How do you consider a team that is .500 to be equal to one that is 7 games under. Stop sippin your Cubbie Kool-Aid from your Ron Santo mug and pay up old man, before I send Tony Soprano up to Elmhurst to "enlighten" you...LOL!

PS Geno,

Remember this is a cumulative bet as stated in the original proposition. It is not a month to month deal. Sox have a better record in April, you pay. Sox still have a better record in May, you pay. Your boys have to catch mine and pass them for me to pay. Let's see that shiny black and silver flying over Elmhurst!!!

Windy,

Talk about sippin' cool-aid? Like the Twin fans have asked, "what are you smokin'"?

I really do not remember it being a cumulative bet. That wouldn't make sense because if one team got a big lead to start the season the other would never catch them and would lose every month then thereby taking the fun out of it. Point me to chapter and verse of our bet please....otherwise, I may choose to welch no matter who you send to enlighten me.

Geno,

Care to double the bet if I have to wade thru all the old posts then I should be rewarded for my effort. It was a cumulative bet and I was very specific about it. What the heck are you doing complaining about paying off the bet, the last time you did your Cubbies went on a streak didn't they? .490 vs .430....PAY THE FIDDLER Geno!

I am not gonna welch - my mistake for accepting.

So Cubs gotta make up 6 games in 30 days?

Now you see why I never should have accepted "cumulative".

Lucky for me it is not for ca$h.

Sorry Geno,

Short business trip, just got back in town tonight. I guess I missed my chance at some prime fodder, eh? I think Lou is going to be Lou and the melt down was inevitable, however, the Barrett and Zam-Brain-NO situation is another thing. I think one of these guys will be gone after next year and I would guess that it would be the Brain-Less Wonder Carlos. What a piece of work, he has to be one of the biggest tools in the shed IMHO! It was kind of funny though. Both teams seem to be wading in mediocrity this year. We shall see how this month ends, but you might have a shot at actually winning a month, who knows. I have no faith in my beloved this season, they seem to be going thru the motions. I guess we can still say, there is a long way to go or we can use the line the Cubbies are famous for....WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR!

What? No answer to my question?

Not much to write about for sure, including the Twin fans. At least the Cubs are in a weak div so I don't have to resort to your "wait till next year" yet. But being out 9, I understand why you feel that way.

I leave tonight for Cass and have a bet with a Cardinal fan that the Cubs would be ahead of them on Mon the 11th. Looks like it is gonna be close.

So are you saying you would rather be the strongest of the weak or the weakest of the strong? Not sure which is better. You better watch your avatar betting there Geno, you may be writing checks you can't cash!

Oh Geno,

You may have spoken too soon! Here you are feeling all friskie about your Cubbies and they have exactly the same number of losses as my beloved Pale Hose and you are about to lose D Lee for being an (Contact Us Please) for a few games, what kind of a girly punch was that from ole Derrick?

The only thing they have going for them is having played 3 extra games. There are a bunch of games left in June and the real series starts Friday. You may have opened the pie hole just a tad early there old boy! LOL

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2017 expire Wednesday, Feb. 28, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Licenses for 2018 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2018 fishing licenses become effective Thursday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2017 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. This year license fees increase by $3 for a resident individual angling license, and fees also increase for other license types including deer hunting licenses, sports licenses and lifetime licenses. License fees support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. “Thank you to all who purchase a license. License fees pay for the work we do and the dollars go directly toward improving fishing and hunting opportunities in Minnesota,” said Steve Michaels, DNR licensing program director. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. Customers are encouraged to update their customer record online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense. Adding an email, while not required, allows the DNR to send important hunting and fishing information, and gather input through surveys. More information about how the DNR spends license dollars can be found at mndnr.gov/LicenseDollarsAtWork. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      A youth paired with an adult can join other youth-adult pairs to learn the basics of fly fishing from experienced instructors from evening on Friday, April 27, to afternoon on Sunday, April 29, near Lanesboro.  “Youth and adults in these classes are both beginners so they can learn to fly fish together,” said Deb Groebner, a regional specialist with MinnAqua, an educational program of the Department of Natural Resources. “When they finish the weekend, they’ll be ready to take on more fishing adventures for a variety of species.” To participate, youth must be 11 to 17 years old as of April 27, and adult and youth must each have less than 5 hours of fly-fishing experience. The registration fee is $130 per pair and includes meals, lodging, guiding services, equipment and additional materials. Sponsorships to offset registration fees may be available from angling and conservation organizations. This event is limited to 20 youth-adult pairs. Apply online. For more information, contact Groebner at 507-359-6049 or deborah.groebner@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Just hauled our shack out last weekend, didn't get a bite.  Graphed some, but no takers, could have just been the weather, or tactics, ha.  Haven't really fished the lake much in the winter, figured we should seeing it's a half mile from home. 
    • nytelyter
      i do plan on being there and hopefully a bit early.  
    • Fathom
      Set up deeper on rock reef for the rest of the weekend and only managed one fish (26" eye), missed a couple others. We wanted to stay deeper due to all the traffic on the lake. We did enjoy a good time at Fishing for Ducks, we saw a nice walleye pulled through the ice but it only measured 27.5". Talk about a bummer for that guy!
    • Jarrid Houston
      Roads to the islands always need to be taken very cautious and I would encourage going with someone who knows the area..  I believe they were shutting down the highway H extension due to this recent weather we just got?  Plenty of fish and opportune situtations in the bay.

      Another crazy busy weekend is in the books. I really enjoy giving out my fishing/what's happening on the lake reports but finding the time has been tough. To say its a grind is a understatement.
       I can tell you again as the season winds down I'm never ready for it to end, as I truly love being out there in my trucks, moving houses, plowing the  hillmen highway, giving advise, helping other fishermen when they do something silly, Driving into a snow bank, dropping there gun down a hole or any other important object like there keys. Every year all the workers seem to get a little grumpy as fighting mother nature, going from sun up to sunset takes a toll physically and mentally. It also seems I ruffle a few feathers every year and its never my intent  so I have to chalk it up as a long season. If I stepped on anyone's toes it sure was not planned or intended as all most every day plan a turns to plan b and c. Mother nature dictates where I go sometimes as well as any plowed roads that can make our job easier. The cookie shuffle worked very well this year as I tell everyone that gets lost in my maze of trails. I'm not a road engineer.
       Man did we get overwhelmed with wheel house's this past weekend, any fish coming from southwest had to go threw a gauntlet of hooks to find my fishermen.
       I had two wheel house's  that I set up at the end of the hillmens highway and was surprised how bad they did. I guess I should of went south not east? The nw road has gotten to much to maintain, there's one lone house out that way that will need a new trail made .
       Its all started Thursday as jonnny boy and I prepped for the weekend with Joe, Zack, Adam and   his crew arriving fro florida. Zacks birthday wish was fishing red lake, they had a blast. They went to westwind where they enjoyed a fish fry, plus they took home a few fish with a couple even getting a ride in florida fish house as we moved a small distance to put it on fresh ice for there last night sunday. Last year when they came we landed on the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie mother load? I think  they had dreams for a year of repeating that. Every year is different and again this year was no exception.
       Ben who proposed in old Minnesota to Shawna 8 years ago were in old Minnesota with there two adorable kids. Louie the fishing machine and his little sister Willa plus there friend Nelli.
       They had a blast also with Shawna getting a elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie to boot. They also managed to take home a nice batch of upper red lake walleyes.
       Hunter and his two buddies were in north Dakota. It was slow but they also managed to take home a batch of fish.
       Charlie and Rizzo were in montana , They were very serious about there fishing and went home with there 8.
      Jeromy and his gal were in north Carolina Saturday, sunday . They also managed to get there 8.
       Sunday was a very tough day as we had all 5 houses re rented. I was planning on moving all of them so we battled mother nature the whole time as a ne wind with 2 inches of snow made it impossible to see. At one point I was getting sea sick as I struggled to see, With the sky, horizon and the lake all the same color. wow what a struggle.
       It took us  7 1/2 hours but we got every thing cleaned, moved.
       Mother nature has given us another bout of snow so tomorrow I will let every one know how the houses did the last two days as its time to check the fluids and fire up the fleet

      Figured I should report back... I fished prime time on Saturday morning and Saturday evening. No action. It didn't help that I forgot to grab the vexilar on the first outing, but it didn't help to have it on the second outing either! ha! Marked a few but couldn't get them to bite. Used a GPS chip to punch some holes over structure, but when I came back with the vexilar, they weren't quite as deep as I hoped. Thanks for the pointers BrianF
