Just got back from Minnesota


Commanche Jim

Recommended Posts

Just got back from a week of touring Minnesota. Few days on Mille Lacs, few on Cass......lots of family stuff, but still managed to get on the lake and boat 2 muskies. Also, my son caught his first and second perch on his own.

Needless to say, it was entertaining watching the sports segments on the 10:00 news up there. "Twins Push for the Playoffs" was the headline on just about every news station starting around last Tuesday.

After this weekend debacle, what's the sports segments saying now?

Nice to see a couple of today's ESPN headlines are about guys from Chi-town. Didn't see any about guys on the Twins.

Commanche,

Catch all the big girls you want in Cass, just leave the "eyes" to your ole pale Windy. I leave in 4 days for two weeks on Cass. Hooking up with Brian for 2 day trips and one night booze cruize with my son and a cooler of DOS EQUIS for Mr. Jones. Keep our beloved in shape while I go do battle in the Land of Twink. How am I going to stop myself from asking the bartender at Pike Hole to turn on our beloved Pale Hose. Magic Number is 59, Twins Magic Number is 911.

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

Think about this one..........for the Twins to catch the Sox and create this up and coming collapse...........If the Sox just play .500 ball for 3 weeks, the Twins would have to win every single game during that span. That would mean they'd have to win 20 in a row.

You never know. The Sox had they're worst stretch of 20 games (May 9th thru the 30th)......They're worst stretch of the season. They went 10-10..........so anything's possible.

Math is certainly not on the Twins side, but stranger things have happened to my Cubbies ('69 Mets, Bartman). And we do have that whole "Windy being in MN for 2 weeks" thing going for us like last year so you never know.

Ah, but you forgot one thing, Gene Gene My Cubbie-Loving Machine. This year I have the secret weapon, THE INJUN!

I am making Commanche Jim the Official Class Monitor while I am gone for the two weeks (actually three weeks since I am taking the wife to Vegas after we get back from Minn for 4 nights to see Barry Manilow (I will be drinking heavily to get thru that one, but, it's her birthday so what you gonna do, right? Any way, I expect a full report from my buddy Commanche when I get back and I expect an emergency meeting if the Twinks get within 8 games of my beloved Pale Hose. Have at it Twinkie-Lovers, I am outta here as of tomorrow!

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

It's no joke Sled. She loves Barry for some ungodly reason so I got some good tix to the show and we will be watching Barely Manenough sing his songs, I will be drinking heavily, the wife will be watching Barry. Luckily the other 3 nights will be spent at the Texas Hold `Em Table. I try to keep winning at the poker table while my wife keeps pouring money into the one armed bandits. Hey, only in Vegas! Anyway, got to go. MAGIC NUMBER 57!!!

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      Where are the opener fish pictures?
    • TrueNorth
      All of us who couldn't be there for opener would love to hear how the fishing was....😉

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.  
    • Muskies
      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.
    • Coleman
      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
