I'm curious

22 posts in this topic

So i work just across the lake at Hazeltine (hole 15) and I wonder what would happen if I was to take a kayak or canoe to work and paddle over to the green there.

Do they have it bouyed off or anything?

Seems like there is really nothing they could do.

Plenty of restrictions there so I'm almost sure you wouldn't make it far.

You would get hounded by the local police till you moved away and off the water. Picture and stuff in today's paper about that. I was thinking about bringing the RP over and use the trolling moter and camp out by the 16th green myself, grilling, tossing back a few grin

I also read that there is quite a few plainsclothed FBI personel wondering around as well.

Could be one of those well its a special situation so we can detain and hold you for 2 days with no reason....that would lead to missed fishing time...

Somehow, I would bet it would mean some time with the police or security.

Never been to Hazeltine but based on where it looked by the blimps flying over the course, would it have been the new Chanhassen school? There's another new school just south of that one as well.

But in regards to taking a boat on the lake, they talked about what you CAN'T do during the Tourny and taking a boat on the water to watch was one of them. They said the Sheriff's Dept would be there to great you.

Was watching the tourney on Thursday afternoon on TNT. There was a couple of kayaks on one of the holes (cant remember which one)

I was thinking kayaks would have been perfect for a sneak approach.

That school is the new Chanhassen school and it is a Monster!

They were just commenting on some folks in canoes on the 15th or 16th "in the cheap seats".

Let's go Yang!

Did anybody catch the article in the paper yesterday about the merchandise sales for this event? I found it interesting that Tiger picks out his clothes a year in advance so that Nike can produce replicas of his shirts to sell at the events. You could purchase the polo shirts he wore on each of the four days of the PGA Championship.....at $90 a pop!....and they were pretty much sold out every day. What recession?

I have always heard that Nike tells him what he will wear. (Not his choice)

I doubted this for a while but after hearing year after year from different sources I guess I believe it.

From the article it said he gets a choice of 100 options and he never wears shirts with stripes or solid colors back to back for whatever reason.

He does seem to always wear a red shirt on the last day of each tour.

    • Fletcher must really like these guys that are small and quick.  I don't understand why they are trying so hard to keep the team intact.  They haven't made it past the 2nd round for the 5-6 years.  We've had this discussion before, but at what point do you say this just isn't working as is?   They have to move good players to get good players.  
    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy
