Hey Windy is this the real Pale Hose?

Did I read it wrong or did the White Sox just get swept by the A's?

Last year we were 7 1/2 back at the AllStar break and won by 9. Maybe this year will wil only win by 2 games (I HOPE)

Oh yeah, Windy sure wasn't asking for any brooms this weekend, was he?

HOPE springs eternal.....Cubs sweep Marlins and A's sweep ChiSox. Great to be a Cub fan this weekend. Like I told my son's coach who is a big Cardinal fan, if they can go up by 12 in half a season, they can go down by 12 the second half. Good old Yogi was right. It ain't over 'till its over!

Hey Geno,

Even a broken clock is right twice a day! I can only hope the A's don't make it into the playoffs. Or we can just end the suspense and acquire Mr. Zito for the pennant drive. Had a huge fish fry today Geno, everybody was over to the ranch talking about plans for Cass 2005 and we decided to pool the remaining walleye from 2004 to empty out the cooler for this year's bounty. We must have cooked up about 40 walleye and 20 perch. What a feast! Got the juices flowing for our trip in a few weeks. Oh well, enough talk about that. Who is going to start the All-Star game? Garland or Buehrle. Any speculation on the outcome, my Cubbie-Loving brother? I say American League (duh!) 8-3 with Buehrle being the MVP.

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES! Windy

I think the NL will get out to an early 5-0 lead after the first inning, but then in the later innings the AL will come back and win a high scoring affair.

The All-Star game will probably be won by the American League again, what have they won like the last 7 all-star games? Francona has talked to Guillen about starting Buehrle for the AL in the all-star game. I was glad to see Rolen pull out of the all-star game, he came back way to early from his shoulder surgery and his offense has suffered but his defense has been nothing short of spectacular. We slumped offensively on the latter part of this west coast roadtrip but still took 5 of 7. The Astros are sizzling and the Cubbies are back on track since D.Lee started playing again. Shapes up for an exciting second half, the wild card races for both leagues will be something to watch...

Tim,

Lucky our main guy, D Lee, is back. Another nice guy like Albert.

Windy,

Nice try with the clock comment and trying to divert attn from the sweep by bringing up Zito, but we can still see the sweat starting to form on you.

As to the fish-fry.......next time send me an invitation and I'll be there. But you'll have to fry up many more 'cause I can eat alot of fish. My buddy is having his Cass fish fry on the 24th. There will be about 60 people enjoying Cass Lake's finest - all species. Can't wait.

Hope you slay 'em and have a good time and good weather on your trip. Ought to be a much closer race by the time you return.

Geno,

I'm in "vacation-mode" countdown, so you're not going to put a kink in my colon. I think that if the Sox can maintain a lead through the end of August, they will cruise to the division. September looks to be pretty easy for the Pale Hose and looks brutal for the Twinks. But you can't count out the Injuns yet.

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES! Windy

That's the way it is with us too, Windy. Nothing puts a kink in vacation-mode ESPECIALLY when Cass is our destination. We spend 6 months remembering the last trip and 6 months planning the next. Shoot, next year I just might make it 2 weeks somehow or another. Gotta save up my pennies though.

I'm not trying to downplay Cass lake guys, but Winni is right down the road and is surely a more productive lake right??? I know the Walleye fishing is off the charts better and the State record Muskie came out of Winni right??? soooo you must be getting a great deal on a cabin right? grin.gif

Not really Buzz,

But our family has been going up to Cass for the past 18 years and we have about 20 people going this year that span over 4 generations so it is kind of a family tradition. With the aid of my trusty guide, Brian Jones who moderates the Cass thread, I have been able to send every family member home with a limit of wallys every year. Brian takes me out the first day of my trip and shows me what's hot and what's not and I do the rest for the next two weeks. We have stayed at the same resort every year and they do treat us well. We have had our share of bad years when the cooler going home was kind of light but the trips are always enjoyable.

Hey Buzz, what's your thoughts on Boone? Seems like a no brainer for the Twinks but he does have a bad rep of being a washed up roid head. Think there is any gas in the tank for Mr. Boone. Compared to what you got now though he might be worth the risk.

Geno,

If you can get up there for two weeks, I would highly recommend it. It started for me about 3 years ago as my wife and I headed into Teals to pick up our dry ice for our ride home. She said that it seemed like we just get there and it is time to go home. SHE WAS THE ONE WHO CAME UP WITH THE IDEA! Didn't take much convincing on my part. I told her that you use the same amount of gas getting up there and the license is good for two weeks, and you have to eat whether it is in MN or IL so that was a wash. The only extra expense was the cabin. I managed to get a smaller cabin than the one we use for our whole family so the cost was only about $500 extra. Well worth it for doubling my MN vacation. The first week up there it is just me and the Mrs. and we don't cook, restaurants all the way and I fish, she reads and we go to the casino and movies in Bemidji. We have a great time, very relaxing before the troops decend upon Cass for week two. I can hardly wait. Oh well, enough Cass talk. I got to concentrate on Mr Buehrle and Mr Garland getting my beloved American League a win so the Sox have home field advantage and I get to see one more playoff game at The Cell. Later, my friend.

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES!

Windy, As far as Boone goes... who knows??? we didn't give up much apparently so if he does anything it will be better than what we have now. I expect him to produce more taters and rbi's... his glove is solid as well as he's won four gold gloves.

As for Cass, I'll be on Cass Lake Friday, July 29th, Winni on the 30th and possibly Leech on that Sunday... unless we get a better idea, then we might not do the Leech lake visit. Will you be up at Cass on the 29th? if so, we should smokem' peace pipe.

Windy, you lucky duck. A great woman behind every man! My wife can't understand why I go almost every year (26 out of 30) to Cass and don't try anything new. She's gonna dirty her drawers if I try to stay 2 weeks.

Buzz, you might be right about better lakes, but the problem is how long it takes to get to know a new lake when you only have a week to enjoy it. Sure we have had a few bad years, but for the most part Cass has provided quite a few fishfrys over the years. You know the old saying...don't mess with success. I know fishing isn't all about just the catching. I spend my leisure time chasing gills and cats and LMB here in IL on small private lakes and nothing is more relaxing than waiting for that bobber to go under. Maybe when I have an entire summer off to spend in the great northwoods I will let you guide me on Winnie or Leech or another of your favorites. I really wouldn't mind having more than just one favorite lake.

Blabbing a little long and now gotta get back to work.

Later,

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?  
    • cm012419
      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.
    • Pat McGraw
      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline. 
    • CigarGuy
      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.
    • ReefWhooligan
      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
