its nice to see on most fantasy baseball advice boards is the twins have the highest ranked catcher (mauer) the highest ranked starting pitcher (santana) and the highest ranked closer (nathen). justin morneu is not the highest ranked first baseman, since there are soo many good ones, but he still comes in at the 24th best of all postions.

looks like another division title. grin.gif

I'm in again this year, I think the regular season winner should get something this year smile.gif Any interest in $5 giftcards as payment this year? Last year it cost me $7 to ship my $5 lures. Just an idea... We could even do $10 gift cards and save money. We could even do a 1st 2nd 3rd then... Last year was great! should be another great seaon. let's try to get everyone paid before the season this year

I was just thinking that I should post up about Fantasy Baseball 2007. I am getting spring fever bad, open water fishing and baseball. Its only February! I think a $5.00 gift card to a sporting goods store would work too if you want to do it. Up to the individual. Last year I think we went 10 for 12 on the lures. It has gotten better every year, but lets get 100% this year.

Auto draft again this year?

Here are the stat catagories from last year:

R, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

Bushwacker, I'd like to be in the league again. I'm O.K. with the stat categories you listed. I would be in favor of a limit on transactions. I remember a live draft last year.

I'll get one started up. Lets give the guys from last year a couple days to get in first, but then we can open it up to new guys. If you are registering for this league, you are committing to sending in a lure worth $5 or a $5 gift certificate to a sporting goods store. It is a winner take all deal. $5 a guy isn't much, but it makes it interesting until the end of the year. I will post up the info in a little bit. This is actually the 3rd season of the FM Fantasy Baseball League for a Lure. grin.gif

I have the league all set to go and all of the owners from last year have been sent an email with the league name and password needed to register. It is exactly the same settings as last year. I have all of the emails except the two that made them private with Yahoo. The team names were Ballers and Roosterfish. So if you are either of those two send me an email at mtrierwe @ yahoo . com and I will get you the info. We will keep it private for two days then I will post the league info on here to fill in the rest of the teams. Lets have another fun year!

I'm in!

Bushwackers, who didn't pay last year? We should get those two replaced or get their lures before the draft. It sucks when everyone else pays then two stiff the winner. Just a thought.

Also, any thoughts about limiting transactions? That wouldn't be too bad of an idea. It makes the pitching a little more valuable at draft time... again, just a thought.

Good luck, looking forward to the draft!

Got mine in. I agree with the limiting of trades, makes it more interesting when you have to rely on your picks (with some room for adjustment) instead of facing a team that has 50 different pitchers a week frown.gif. Just my humble opinion. Good luck to all. Should be a fun year again.......

I also am back for the third season. last I looked, there are 10 teams in, that leaves 4 spots open. limited transactions is fine with me also. but if we do that,I will have to take that thursday night off work, so I can do the live draft. but I am due for a day, or should I say night off. grin.gif

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On! 
    • monstermoose78
      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day. 
    • redlabguy
      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick

      What a difference a day makes, yesterday the dam was locked up tight and today it's roaring. Walleye should be running this week...
    • IceHawk
      Well this morning was officially the end of the ice season for me.   Its been a lot of days on the ice this winter and I have to admit I'm  a little burnt out.   It wasn't easy but it was time to end it.  Have to admit It was a sad moment putting the gear away but it was time as needed space today to put the boat in the garage   Learned a lot of new water and reacquainted myself with some old standbys. Fished 10 different counties this winter so definitely fished a lot of different areas.  Fished many species on the ice this winter so there never was a dull moment. Didn't take a ton of pics just a few need to take more just have never been a pic type of guy LOL.   Iced 7 walleyes between 26-28 3/4 all on local lakes.  So just a tip if you dedicate some time locally big eyes can be found. Fished panfish everywhere in the state highlight area for big fish being Becker and Ottertail Douglas counties. Biggest gill this winter was 10 3/4    many 10's came topside but couldn't break 11 this winter. Craps 15 inchers were tops. Good fish but had goals set at a 16.  Some things learned this ice season where number one lure for the eyes was a old school hammered silver Swedish pimple. It far out produced anything else.   Kenders tungsten where my mainstay for gills and crappies. The plastics of choice were power bait wishbones,  chigger frys, and Northland impulse mayfly's.  The catfish were a hoot and a  change of pace did well on Maynards slammers Glow red. The equipment and gear I was running and never failed me all season were Thorne Bros Rods- For eyes Perch sweethearts. For the Panfish I was running  Power Noodles, panfish sweethearts,  and my favorite the Tripwire. Reels Pflueger Presidents, Prestige ,and Supremes.. Did use some inlines also from 13 fishing The free falls where worth every penny. Ran a K-Drill 8 inch early and late and During the thick ice Ran my strikemaste Lazer.  Vexilar Electronics the old trusty FL18 my eyes underwater, Please Don't  think that I'm pushing these products because I'm sponsored by them, I'm Not. Just want to give a thumbs up and honest opinion on  some top notch equipment that has worked and weathered the storm of a good hardwater season. Realize we all work hard for our dollars and I can honestly say these products where worth every penny and never let me down!  Well Off to the Garage to start getting the boat ready for the Next season  By the Way big Shout out to some of the best Anglers I had the chance to share the ice with this season from FM.  Thanks  Borch,  Bass Thumb,  Moose,  Eyeguy, Rick G , Tom Sawyer for shareing some ice time with me.  Hopefully I get to meet and fish with a few other FMer's this summer or next hardwater.  We had some great Times great laughs and managed to even ice a few fish   Looking forward to having a few summer outings in the future.  BYE BYE Ice Hello open water

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!
