Hello der Buzzy and heelloooo Scotty Rolen! Nice grand salami and Pujols with two dingers himself now that's a way to start off the season boys with a 13-5 rout. Pujols second hr was an upper deck shnike. Eckstein made a sweet catch in foul territory. Bye bye Junior Spivey, hello Aaron Miles... Where are ya Windy?

Anybody catch Adam Dunn out in left, laugh.gifgrin.giflaugh.gifgrin.gif What a joke. grin.gif

Good for Geno's cubbies off to a good start. Only if there rotation could stay healthy for a complete season ooo.gif

Hey There Tim,

I didn't forget about you guys, just been a little busy around the ole casa with remodeling. Painting and crown molding. Anywho, nice opening day pounding for both our clubs, Thome is a monster! Even ole Geno had to have a "Cubby Chubby" going after opening day even though Zambraino got rocked. Same goes for Freddy Garcia and the Mighty YO-HAN, they all looked terrible and I blame it on that stupid World tournament. I think this will really hurt the pitchers more than the field players. It might take Garcia a month or more to get back to where he should be, he is off his velocity by 4-5 mph and his control was bad. I think the pitchers should have stayed in spring training and forgot about that stupid tournament.

Oh well, how bout a little prognosticating??? Feel free to reply, and away we go!

I was right there with you Friendly, watching Freddie Garcia get rocked, I still say it was that stupid World tournament that screwed the pitchers up. Look at how YO-HAN, Garcia and Zambraino pitched.

Who knows whats up with those guys. Pitchers, kickers and goalies are the biggest headcases in their sports. If you say boo to them they freek.

Down to Earth

I wish I could find the article now, but just recently I read an article about Johan and how the WBC supposedly made him feel ahead of where he was at this point in previous years. Guess that didn't quite go to plan yesterday.

As far as the AL and NL Central, I think its pretty easy to go with the popular White Sox and Cardinals vote. I'l like to throw out a couple dark horse candidates: the Tigers in the AL and my old home team the Brewers.

Honestly, though I can't see the Twins contending. I still don't see how they are going to score runs. It was a major problem last year and its hard for me too see any of their off season moves making a difference.

Hey DTE,

I think we both had the Kitties and Brew Crew up in the standings, I know I pegged both for third, I think. I think they will both suprise people like they have so far this year, but I do believe they will come back to earth soon and will settle into the middle of their respective divisions. My beloved turned the corner today, hopefully, though the Twinks are still getting shelled, YO-Han got beat again, must be driving the Twinkie lovers crazy up north. Talk to you later and as usual...YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES! Windy

      I agree with Rayguy. A lot of ecological changes happening everywhere and I think we’re seeing that on the Whitefish chain. Keep looking for new spots and new structure. Fish are still there. It’ll be interesting to see how Fall fishing goes. I am planning on fishing the next couple of days. I’ll let you know how I do.

      Ace is right, no need to run to far to find walleyes! They are all over the East end where you will be staying. The number one rule is "trust your depth finder"! I never fish a spot unless I see a few fish there! Lindy rigs, spinner rigs, slip bobber rigs, and jigs will all catch walleyes that time of the year. Cliff

      Thank you, my husband and I usually go to Kabetogama . but we are going to go later, had a chance to go here for the first time(Labor day weekend)and are excited to try it. Found a private cabin to rent very reasonable in that bay.

      I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.

      No brush or yard waste burning today through Sunday The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has issued an air quality alert for today through Sunday for northern Minnesota.    As a result, the Department of Natural Resources will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste for all areas north of Alexandria, including Mille Lacs and Pine counties. Burn restrictions may expand as smoke from the Canadian fires drifts south. For updates and the air quality forecast, check the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency website.

      If you are looking for Walleyes stay on the east end. There is no need to go running all over the lake to catch them. Daisy bay has Walleyes available as does Big bay which in my opinion has some of the best Walleye fishing on the lake.  Trolling cranks works this time of year, as well as Lindy rigging, or pulling spinners on a bottom bouncer. You can also find some decent evening slip bobber fishing close to where you are staying.  Good luck and have fun, you won't be disappointed.     "Ace" "It's just fishing man".

      Anyone that takes 16 years to boat a Muskie most likely doesn't target them all the time.  I average one Muskie every time I go out on Vermilion. It really isn't that hard if you do your homework and do the little things that it takes to be successful. Get out there and cast, cast, cast until your arms fall off.     "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on fishing the lake, we will be staying at a cabin by Daisy Bay / Arrow Head point. Not asking for your hot spots, just wondering if the area where the cabin is, if fishing for Walleye is close by. I here talk about east vs. west side. Not sure what that means? Any help would be great.
