Tigers got all that MOJO -- We're home free! (ya...right)

Big win last night. Believe the SOX are out of it. Two team race for the Division. Loser gets the Yankees.

Chicago with it's huge payroll will go down as a big disappointment in 2006 by not getting back to where all the so-called experts expected them to be... in the playoffs and World Series.... they could still turn it around, but time is running out on Windy's boys of summer.

Just proves that last year was a fluke. The sox always fade come august and sept...its just the make up of who they are. They almost blew it last year but played well enough (and other teams in div, poor enough) to make it into the playoffs on fumes. Their dreams usually come to a crashing end with a series in Minnesota too bad it doesnt look like those games will mean much for them at this point.

Hey Buzz, remember what you said yesterday? Well, the WSox got the 1 out of the way now but I don't think they're gonna get the 12.

Very nice story there Sled.

Mr. MOJO rising..........

Anyways, I'm watching the game last night and they show the pics of the 3-4-5 (Dye, Thome, Konerko) so I know nothings gonna go wrong that inning, then later I see that Podsednik is pinch-hitting and I'm like, who the he** is HE pinch-hitting for? I know I AIN'T IN THERE so that poor guy must be a real bum!

Windy, you shoveling any dirt yet?

Geez, wonder if we'll ever hear from Windy again...he's gotta hope the WSox win at least one of their last 12.......AFTER the WCard is clinched I hope of course.

I'm a thinkin' that the people of Chicago are going to hop on the Bears bandwagon and hope they can salvage the end of summer/fall season for them as their White Sox are faltering big time. I could be wrong, but I suspect you'll stop hearing White Sox banter and it will turn to Bears this and Bears that.... I've been wrong before, we'll seeeeeeeeeee. grin.gif

Buzz,

Like I have said before, "Any port in a storm"! I did my duty and paid my respects to my beloved at the funeral last night. I would bet my last dollar that you will not see Mr. Buehrle wearing the black and silver next year. I think he has already been fitted for two red birdies on the front of his jersey. But to put a positive "Windy" spin on the game, at least I saw the Sox pull off a triple play and Thome did get his 40th tater. So to validate what my running mate and "brother from another mother" said....BEAR DOWN CHICAGO BEARS! Windy

This really shouldn't come as a surprise to most WhiteSox fans that were actually following the team before they won their first WS in 80 years.

They have consistently collapsed towards the end of the season, with last year being an abberation.

The three straight div. titles that the Twins won were supposed to be won by the Sox. "ON PAPER", they were supposed to be better, but when you played the games, they weren't.

Hopefully the Tig's can falter enough for the Twins to win the div. and continue the dominance they have shown since the 2002 season, minus 2005 when the Sox fluked out and won it all.

PS - The Bears aren't that great either. grin.gif Although they are probably better than the Vikes.

Windy, you did your boys proud and stood in here tall one against all and held your own. Even your final thoughts show a true WSox love so I give you a big "Attaboy Windy" - spinning it like we know you can. Remember who their other TriplePlay this yr was against?

Listen, it's not so bad to be out of it. I still root for my Cubbies and they got 3 chances EVERY year to make the playoffs: slim, fat, and none!

Well guys....I leave it to group concsious (sp?):

Do I root FOR the WSox tonight?

      After reading all the post and having gone to upper red once a year sometimes twice (Started renting shacks then got a wheel house 3 yrs ago) for the past eleven years. I find this entire thread and topic somewhat laughable. The locals and resorts seem to complain about an issue they've brought upon themselves. I kinda agree with the post you've put up to a point.    Here is my view.....maybe it is wrong. I drive 7+ hours from Northwest Iowa pay the fees to fish in Minnesota for a couple days. Pay the resort fees for roads, pay for services at the resorts. I tend to buy fuel, bait, propane, and food at the places we use, and sometimes other services. These people make a living using the lake to BRING the business to them. Then when they get the people to the lake and get some money flowing and are having success with people showing up.......the big problem is trash......Seems pretty simple to me if your a resort......figure out trash management for you customers. They showed up and are using the services you provide. A simple $5 tagged onto a road fee with avalible dumpsters could solve the problem. I actually have never had any issues with trash on my trips....so I'm a bit supprised by all this. I mean people are going through the resorts for services and willing to pay. If $5 was a deal breaker.....then why wouldn't people just go out of the public acess points, and not pay any resort fees.   The first 7yrs the guide we use had a trailer on the lake and had his customers throw tied off bags of trash in it. Then he disposed of it. The last three years with my shack the resort we went out of had a dumpster to throw the trash in. I'd gone out of JR's Access, West Winds, and Rogers. When We came off the lake we stopped in and asked if we could throw our trash away....they always said yeah put it in the dumpster.

      Thanks. That's one of the ones that I was considering.

      The water temps were 44-47 degrees over most of the lake this weekend. Black Bay partially froze Friday night into Saturday.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I saw a lot of guys running planner boards. We braved the cold ride Friday and Saturday, going from the far west end over near Shamrock. We spot locked in the wind and had pretty good success with the 11-13" walleyes but nothing of size except a few beautiful jumbo perch. We just used jigs in 30-35ft of water with rainbow minnows, the smaller the better. Big minnows were useless.   We didn't stay at any of the west end locations too long, but mostly because we weren't marking fish and weren't getting any bites. I would have liked to work longer for the bigger fish.

      Care to share where in Ripley this feeding flat is?  Maybe I shoot a deer and catch fish in Ripley this year!😁
    • seifjr
      As usual Curt, thanks for all the reports you provide to us folks that only get up to LOW 4-5 times/year.  Coming up again for the MEA weekend, fishing Thursday-Saturday.  Looks like Thursday's going to be nice with warmer temps and WSW winds.  If we get the heavy WNW winds on Saturday, is the LP area fishable.  Seems like the more west it is the comfort level goes up dramatically.  Bringing the kids this trip, so there not real big fans of the 4-5 footers if you know what I mean.  Hope to see ya Thursday, we'll be in a 2150 Lund and 18.5 Alumacraft.

      These fish came of the feeding flat.
    • monstermoose78
      I like finding aggressive crappies and those feeding flats normally have more aggressive crappies plus some big gills mixed in. 
    • Rick
      This is great advice as well @monstermoose78. I will add that another reason crappies suspend over a deep basin is because of the plankton rising and dropping from and back to the mud basin below based on light levels.

      Got back yesterday from a week at my shack. Tough conditions. Lots of rain and over 6" of snow. My buddy and I saw 28 grouse and got 15. They were pretty wild and had to put the chase on alot of them. Got pretty wet running after them and snow falling on your head. Had to chainsaw our way out to the trucks thanks to the heavy wet snow.
