for real. let MLB handle it's own issues. our "elected officials" have much more important things to handle than to dip their noses in this kind of stuff.

Let them have their noses in baseball, it keeps them out of the other stuff they shouldnt have their noses in!

The way I look at it was if the players did it before it was ilagal, who cares, admit you did it everyone did then! If it was afterwards then kick them out of baseball, to not play pro baseball again, then I bet that would prevent future players from doing it!

People we are talking about breaking federal laws. Steroids are illegal to possess without a prescription from a licensed physician. It is illegal for individuals to sell steroids.

This is why the Gov. is involved.

Clemens is just as guilty as the rest.

Napa,

The real reason the feds are in on this is the anti-trust exemption that MLB has. There is talk about a huge lawsuit of fraud and such with the players being juiced. Just what I am hearing in the Windy these days.

PS I love your avatar....Veddy Nice!

im not so sure if he is guilty or not. I wish i could believe him, but im just not sure. For everything that he has done for the game of baseball, and the player that he is on the field, i hope that its not true that he was taking HGH, becuase he was a class act all the time on the field.

Macnamar or whatever his name is claims to have physical proof now such as needles aand vials that will have Clemens DNA on it and HGH and steriods so we can see what comes of that tomorrow when he turns that in.

thats correct. I was watching SC tonight, and he said that back in 2000 and 2001, he kept everything for proof becuase he figured that Clemens would lie about the whole situation somewhere down the line.

Its going to be interesting to see what happens in the next few weeks.

Wow,

I can't believe he would go to that extreme but you know Clemens will come up with some crazy conspiracy theory and say that he had MacNamee give him a B12 shot and then kept the syringe and put roids in after he emptied the B12 into his rear!

Sometimes I wonder if Clemens thinks this will just all go away or what. The bottom line with all of these guys is some of their best years every came when they should have been sliding and thinking of retirement.

I have lost all respect for Clemens, what a tool! Now his smarmy mouthpiece is equating the Congressional Investigation with the Duke rugby player incident. Yea, let's throw the entire US Political structure under the bus so one over the hill egotistical blowhard whose only redeaming quality of his life was his ability to throw a rawhide sphere 60 feet 6 inches better than most people can keep his self centered ego in tact and try to be inducted into a hall of fame for said sport so that other like minded people whose abilities were less than his can go to this shrine and worship at his bronze likeness! Give me a friggin break!

What do you call 10,000 lawyers chained together at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean?.....A Good Start!

sounds like a real class act. Gives someone illegal steroids then keeps the evidence for almost ten years just in case the user lies about it. What was he thinking? I'll come forward with this in the future when my rear is the one sticking out. Now I read he claims he saw Clemens at a party he himself was not at.

Be careful which horse you saddle up with guys! I heard that they were both at that party along with wives and family but were not there the entire time. And as for keeping the evidence, sounds like a good business practice to me. If I were dealing with high profile figures in illegal substances I would keep whatever necessary if the feces ever hit the fan. You know the high profile person will always get the benefit of the doubt because they are a beloved figure and they know how to get face time in the press and play that "aw shucks fellers, it wasn't me" and "I never had sexual relations with that woman" line of garbage. There are no clean hands in this case but I don't believe for one moment that McNamee's are the only paws that are dirty!

One its not evidence in anyway shape or form....PERIOD....it wouldn't be admissible in a kangaroo court!

That being said I don't think this changes the fact that Roger did a cycle or 2.

Pier,

Just like Sammy, McGuire and Barry just took their Flintstone vitamins, right? I agree that the evidence would not make it in the court of law or kangaroo but it the court of public opinion it speaks volumes and that is what Roger the Dodger is trying to sway!

No! they along with Roger and thousands of others have taken performance enhancing drugs the problem is much more wide spread than the general public believes or WANTS to believe.

If you were to name your favorite modern day athletes Windy I would say its almost certain they have taken PED's and it is certain the have taken GREENIES.."SPEED"

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.

      Looks interesting.... any chance a video is on its way 🙂

      I fished Friday and Saturday. I started out front of Zipple in 28’. Jig w/ frozen shinners. I caught small fish. I moved towards Long Point out from the green can. I was marking lots of fish in 25’. I ended up with a limit of 14” to 16” eyes. I was catching a good number of fish that were mostly on the small side. They were biting super lite!  Yes, I missed my fair share too. Lol Saturday I tried Knight and Bridges. I didn’t mark many fish and didn’t have a bite on either reef at various depths! I did talk to a guy who did well in the morning. I moved out to the mud to 32’ and started marking nice hooks. I caught some really nice fish. I ended up keeping 18” to 19” eyes. I caught 6 slot fish. The biggest was 27”. It was awesome! Good Luck BTW...it sure would be nice if others would post.

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

      Fishing with my father and my son on Father's Day hasn't happened in a long time...so this was fun.  Helped that the storms stayed south. 1/4-1/2 mile off the border straight out from the gap in 29-ish feet of water jigging worked for us.  Limits of 17+" walleyes by lunch both days, with a handful of slots for good measure.  Hardly any sauger, though.  Jig color rotated, so if something isn't working, change it up.  Black, gold, orange, pink, white, green, chartreuse all produced at one point or another.  Not everyone was catching, and moving 1/4 mile or even a couple hundred feet made a big difference at times. We didn't try it, but heard of spinners and crawlers working up shallow (6-10 feet) along Pine Island. Mayflies are starting to hatch.  Dad saw some floaters on the Rainy on Saturday, and I saw some in town at the gas station when I left Monday morning.

      Any current reports, crappies still biting? Going to give it a go Friday morning.
    • KidMoe
      Don’t forgot the requirement for non-resident anglers to wear blaze pink any time they’re on the water! 😆 My serious advice would be to visit the nearest bait shop. My experience is that they are always helpful in helping navigate the license requirements AND get you on some fish.

      Well the weather was a bit rough here until yesterday in Cass Lake.   Lots of storms and unsettled weather.   Still finding walleyes either in 8-12 fow or 17-21 fow during the day.  Leaches or shiners have been catching fish.  At night you'll find walleyes in 4-8 fow and willing to hit various crankbaits in various colors.  Lots of smaller eyes still being caught but nice ones too
