Zam-Bran-Uh OH !

Windy City Walleye Hunter

Your lack of confidence in your Cubbies seems to be paying off nicely! Your non-bet on the avatar looks pretty sweet. Maybe the Cubbies can get swept and then Lou can have a well rested Carlos Zam-bran-Uh OH pitch Sunday against Ronnie Woo Woo and 8 "fellas" up there in boys town! LMAO

Nice game of non-managing by Sweet Lou.

1 for 10 with runners in scoring position is the reason for the Cubs demise. I thought Zambrano didn't pitch bad plus he can rake at the plate...

Windy, gotta know when to hold 'em and fold 'em, right?

Not going to believe this, but I didn't watch.

But tonight I hope to stay up for it.

Yes, 1 for 10 w RISP is the story.

Against a not-so-bad pitcher - so kudos to him.

Here's my take on the game.

Z should have either been lifted in the top of the 6th for a pinch hitter with the bases loaded and two outs OR they should have pitched him at least another inning since his pitch count was only at 85. I know Marmol has been Da Man for the last few months but why did you pony up 91 Large to Z if you were not going to ride that horse? Bad percentage moves by Sweet Lou. Z did his thing and did not implode but it looked like Lou was focusing more on Game 4 than on Game 1 ! (note to Lou....THERE MAY NOT BE A GAME 4)

All in all when your top 5 hitters go 1 for 22 you are not going to do much in the game unless your bottom is on Fiy-Ya.

They better get their acts together tonight or Wiggly Field will be very clean come Sunday morning as the D-Backs sweep the Cubbie out of the playoffs!

Windy are you psychic as well as psychotic?

From what I have seen so far in the playoffs after a small sampling barring a Cleveland loss at home, the two best teams in the A.L. are the Indians and Red Sox. The Red Sox are playing well enough to beat up and injured and haggled Angels squad and the Spankee's hopes rest on Pettite tonight. While in Rocky Mania home of the Triple A Smokies they are rolling up some fat numbers on floundering Phil's.

So I will have to reevaluate my playoff predictions because as most we underestimated some clubs.

Colorado vs. Arizona (Battle of the N.L. West)

Red Sox vs. Indians (It's funny you can add the payroll of all three teams together and be short of the Red Sox)

      they have been great!  Provide more stability and floatation to the rear of the boat where it was needed with my 230lb frame with the motor back there.  They also make the boat look pretty "mean" for a small little jon boat   The only downside to them is now I have to figure out a trolling motor since I cant put one off the rear, and I have to get creative to mount a transducer.  Currenly i just suction cup a vexilar transducer to the side of the boat. I am planning on adding a motorguide kayak 36" shaft trolling motor to the bow.  I just need some welding on the front, but I have to customize it so the boat still can fit on my trailer properly, as I have bumpers that create a little logistical snafu.

      Looks like you got it set up pretty nice with comfy seats. How did the rear floats you added work?

      Just thought I would provide an update....the river is high and fast.  I have been down there multiple times during the course of the year and the fishing has been poor with water moving so fast.  I have tried 3oz weights and they tumble like nothing down the river.  Have not attempted to launch the boat out there.  I have been on the Rum a bit with the boat and that is a fun navigational voyage!  Not a lot of fish caught but some.  Regarding my boat set up, I did upgrade the 4hp up to a 6hp.  has just enough power to go where I need with a passenger.  next step is to weld up something to mount a bow mount trolling motor and I will have a solid fishing machine for small lakes and rivers. Hope everyone is out there enjoying our summertime open water!!

      Someone is always catching them somewhere but so far this week that someone is not me. Still a few ideas to try but running out quickly

      On the south end...   Summer fishing is prime time right now up at Lake of the Woods.  Good numbers of walleyes being caught.  A nice variety of sizes, which bodes well for the fishery.  Small fish, eaters, slot fish which must be released (19.5 - 28.0 inches) and trophy walleyes over 28 inches all in the mix.     The mud is holding big numbers of fish and two main fishing techniques are being used to get it done. The first technique is drifting or trolling crawler harnesses.  Using a two ounce bottom bouncer and a two snelled spinner will do the trick.  Best spinner colors have been gold, gold/pink, orange/chartreuse.     Making sure your weight is near the bottom, but not dragging the bottom is key.  Try to maintain a 45 degree angle and make sure the spinner is spinning, normally 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Walleyes will load up, almost feeling like you are dragging a wet sock.  A good feeling!   The second technique catching good numbers of walleyes is trolling crankbaits over the mud basin.  To get crankbaits down to schools of fish normally in that 28 - 32' range, lead core line, snap weights, downriggers and even a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with 6' mono or fluorocarbon leader with shallow diving crankbait will work well.   Most popular depths on the mud are 30'-36' of water over the mud basin.  Not every walleye in the lake is focusing on the same forage base.  There has also been success in that 12-20' range over sand and even shallower along shore.     Reefs can be their own ecosystem and can always hold fish.  Fish can be on top, sides, on the rock to mud transition or even adjacent to reef out in the mud.  Go fishing, watch electronics. On the Rainy River...  With drier weather, the flow of water is decreasing on the Rainy River.  Water clarity has improved and so has fishing.     Most are targeting the edges of the main current where water is slower moving.  Points, bridges, underwater structure, docks and bends in the river can all change current flow, creating good spots for fish to live. Jigs, spinners and crankbaits are all catching fish.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River with literally thousands of fun spots to fish. The sturgeon season is open.  Some nice fish were caught this week.  Anchor up on a hole or adjacent to a hole in the river and soak some nightcrawlers.  Local tackle shops have flat no roll sinkers and sturgeon rigs.     There is a big population of smallmouth bass in the Rainy River.  Although they don't receive much attention due to walleyes, they are abundant. Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing is the rule of thumb using three techniques, jigging, trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits.     Reports of walleyes sliding deeper off of structure.  If fishing a "spot on a spot", jigging is the preferred method.  If fish are spread out or you are searching a flat, spinners and crankbaits will cover more water and walleyes are normally cooperative.   Some big pike caught again this week.  These predators are often hanging around schools of walleyes and saugers, but rocky points, bays and sunken islands are great spots as well. Muskie anglers continue reporting good success fishing a variety of structure amongst the islands.

      CFD200, Nice Fish!  are you on the east or west side of Vermilion?
    • monstermoose78
      Just have been busy and I will work ok a report tonight. 
    • CFD200
      We had difficulty finding any walleyes this weekend.  The previous two weekends I marked a lot of fish with few takers.  Didn't  mark many this weekend but, caught this 24" mark.
