Detroit and Chicago have to be as low as the Twins are high.

Silva did his job today.

Harvey,

I can see the Detroit part of your post but why the Chicago. Our ship sailed two weeks ago. Most of the team had cashed it in ten games ago. Why would you think we are low now. We got ours last year, good luck getting your this year. Windy

We got ours last year. We got ours last year. We got ours last year. We got ours last year. We got ours last year. We got ours last year. We all know that!

How can the Sox not be disappointed? They under achieved once again.

Well said fisherman,talk about a huge choke.I would rather have a fresh Mauer than a tired hitting champion.If the Twins would have had the Our ship sailed two weeks ago attitude,they would not be where they are today.Maybe the Soxs need to take a better look at themselves.

Hence why they didn't make the playoffs. Hence why the Twins did. The Twins NEVER gave up, even back in June. Any team with self respect and dignity would not give up just because they didn't make the playoffs. You didn't see the Royals give up now did you? Even with 100 losses they still played their hearts out and swept the Tigers.

The royals are definetly the best of the worst. Even with all there inexperienced and overrated, overaged players they won some big games this year, Tigers, redsox, yankees, twins............. Wait... What am i talling about! none of that matters any more. WE WON THE CENTRAL.

Windy,

when the TWins lost Liriano on the 7th Aug and Radke a few weeks later,,, your ship should of sailed into port on a stiff tailwind being ahead 8+ in the WC. INstead you were sunk by the combo of Garza,Baker,Silva,Bonser; that's equal to a firecracker sinking a U-Boat.

Your ship sunk with your captian's call to his mates in time of stress agst the PIRANHAS!!!!,, and once you went under, the PIRANHAS ate you alive!!!!!,,, and the TIGERS.

Hey Fisherman, didn't you say that the Sox underacheived last year? And you guys have been to the playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and couldn't even make it to the World Series? Talk about underacheiving!!!!

All you guys keep talkin smack about the Sox.....why? We're still the defending champs until somebody wins it this year.

And until somebody wins it, WE ARE THE CHAMPION, MY FRIEND!!!

And keep talkin smack..........all the Twins have done was won the division. You guys almost got swept by the White Sox minor league system this past weekend.

And don't be too cocky..........excluding divisional foes, you guys have only won 2 series since the all star break against .500 teams.

Commanche...how can you honestly say that the White Sox have not under achieved this year???? Are their any really positive things you can say about how your team did this year. I personally cant come up with any. But the Twins on the other hand i could go on and on about how about this "dream" season they have had this year!

One thing that gives me the utmost gratification is how all Illinois boys all season long were rubbing in how good the your team was and how you are the World Champions.....and If the Twins dont even win one play off game...be rest assured i am that i will be happier than all get up that we played 3 more games this year the the Chicago White Sox! From World Champions one year to not even making the playofss the next....how is that not : confused.gifblush.gifgrin.gifcool.gif( confused.gifunderachieving?? confused.gif

attended saturdays game and sundays game.

All I can say is WOW!!! what a great time.

Went to media day before saturdays game, got to meat Paul Molitor, Terry Ryan and John Gordon.

Sundays game was just a rush the whole day. You just knew something magical was going to happen. Stayed and cheered and it seemed like only a handful of people left. It was awesome how everyone stayed. And then watching the team run out on to the field after the clinch. GOOD TIMES!!!!

I recorded a video on my digital camera that I will try to upload later for all to see.

My wife and I was there Sun. and it was AWESOME!! What a great day. The Puckett video was enough to choke one up. But it was great to see our small market team come running out from the dugout and Hi-5 the crowd and cheer the fans!! Bring on the A's

I was watching the game on FSN. Right smack dab in the middle of the post game show they go to bowling. BOWLING for cripes sake. The Twins are about to win the division and they start covering BOWLING!!!!!

I like bowling as much as the next guy but I wanted to see the outcome of the Detroit game and the following celebration. Guess that's what I get for living 3 miles from the middle of nowhere.

I was in the same boat boilerguy. I thought one of the kids had grabbed the remote. Not one channel was broadcasting anything about the out come of Detroit and our new second team KC. I had to go in the garage and listen to it on the radio. Way to go Twins!!!!!!!!

Guess what Leroy, the Central is the best division and we play them a ton more than the other teams so what you said holds no water.

4 out of 5 years eh? I wouldn't call that underachieving, I would call that utter domination. Your one good season was last year and it is over. Welcome back to your rightful place in the division: 3rd - behind the Twins and playing golf in October!!!!! grin.gifgrin.gif

Whatever makes you feel better! Keep livin' in the past.

As to your remark only two series wins vs teams with a better then a .500 record. Might have something to do with an unabalanced schedule. The only series we lost was in NY. I did remember beating the Sox a bunch of times when it counted. The sweep in Chicago was so sweet.

I agree... Commanche is spewing out sour grapes. be real, live in the "Now" and tell us how you feel about the 2006 ChiSox and how two superior teams outplayed them.... to be more specific, how one team owned them all year and how the other punked them the last month of the year. Was it the horrible pitching? The lack of timely hitting? Ozzie?? Hawk opening up his mouth and spewing garbage? So many choices and I'm certain you've got to have a reason for the demise of the 2006 Sox. I gave your team credit last year for it's great season, but that was LAST year and really think we are about 11 months past that achievement right? They are officially out of the opportunity to defend, therefore roll over and be a big person and give props were props are deserved... or not.

Buzzsaw is right on! The Sox didn't make the playoffs, therefore are no longer defending champs. You no longer can defend something you don't have....and that is an opportunity to play for the championship! Defending champs? Not anymore....PRETENDING CHAMPS is more like it!

Sit up, put your head up, look at the crowd and take the criticisms like a man.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem. 
    • eg_gophers2124
      Yes it is open. It is $7.00 this year. It is a nice access and I use it every time instead of one of the public accesses. It is on Hwy 24 & county rd 39. It is a little old lady that owns it and collects the money. There is a bucket and notepad to write your plate number on if she isn't home.

      We have rented a cabin on Sylvan Lake between Pillager and Brainerd for the family this weekend. My 13 year old really would like to find some bass and pike. I have never fished the lake and don't fish for bass or pike often, does anyone have a fishing report and tips of what depth/lures to use? We do have a boat to get around the lake.  TIA

      Lake is connected to two others with zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a report of a zebra mussel in East Loon Lake in Otter Tail County. East Loon Lake is between and connected to East Spirit Lake and Sybil Lake, both of which were confirmed as having zebra mussels in 2016.  A lake user contacted the DNR after finding a single adult zebra mussel in East Loon Lake, which DNR specialists confirmed through photos and the specimen itself. No additional zebra mussels were found during a follow-up survey. “It’s helpful that an alert individual contacted us when they suspected they’d found a zebra mussel,” DNR assistant invasive species specialist Mark Ranweiler said. “Because they kept the zebra mussel, we were able to confirm the species identification.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft and trailers of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees for at least two minutes or 140 degrees for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Zebra mussels can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species. More information is available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      ....is a City Park.  Land of Memories  with a lot of Minnesota and Blue Earth River shore access and I believe you can access the confluence of the rivers there as well.   Another attraction not really connected to fishing is Minneopa State Park with the falls on one side of the road and drive through buffalo herd area on the other.  Parks require a car window sticker for entrance.   Good Luck

      I like them when it's dead calm they seem to work great then. When it gets a little ripple on top not as effective but still learning with them. Thanks for the report jigginjim

      class of 70 here, and the park across the river  is Land of Memories if I remember correctly...
