We don't start until June here in central New York, but I play Tuesday and tourneys through out the season and only have a 1 night a week league and that team is LaPub/The Garage, regular season champs 2007. Were going over the roster already, many changes and more of our tournament guys to keep some consistency. I'll be 44 in Jun and still love playing... Alot of leagues are going aluminum only here, composites will be a 90% no-no in the stae this year and all I can say is, "It's about time!"

I will continue as an ASA Umpire, enjoyed that last year in my first full season and can honestly say that I blew two calls all season, not bad when you figure I did over 800 innings..

Can't wait to get started back playing.. Let's have those bat lists...

Is there anybody in the Farmington, Lakeville, Rosemount, Apple Valley area that is looking for another player for their team. Ive played outfield for the last 3 years in south st. paul and bloomington. I recently moved to farmington and looking to get on a team. I'd be willing to do a tryout

Good to see another "Blue" on the forums. You may have only "blown" 2, but I can't believe you didn't miss more than that grin.gif

Coach those are blatant misses, you know when you wiff so bad and you feel embarassed, you want to reverse the call. I remember them both, one was a backside tag coming to third from the outfield that I was late getting too. And the second was a call at first base on a routine groundball, the runner was a step and a half past the bag... They laughed it off fortunately.. Thank God I knew some of the guys on that team, they realized 30 min. prior to the game I just dropped my son Tyler off to become a U.S. Marine

Yeah, I know what that is like. Its too bad you can't wait like 10 seconds on calls like that because after they replay in your head 5 times, you know what call you should make! My worst ever is... bottom of the 7th, 2 outs, bases loaded, tie game. It is a co-ed league and a woman is up to bat. She hits a rather meaningless soft grounder down the third base line. She had done it every at bat previously and it is about 10 feet foul, when I call it "Foul ball"... well in proceeds to hit a foothole, hop straight toward the bag, clip the corner of the bag, popping it in to left field. I had already called it dead, so no going back. Took away the game winning hit. They eventually lost in extra innings. I walked backwards to the car that night!! grin.gif

Just kidding -- That is good story...would of like to been there to see that one happen!!

Thanks for sharing -- only a month away now and we will be playing!!

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.
    • delcecchi

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
    • Rick
      Nice outing and very nice pics.
    • Wheres_Walter
      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
