pack fans?

14 posts in this topic

"gulp" i am gonna put this out there and see what happens.

how do you guys feel about this year? i don't see any running game, and questionable recievers. on the plus side, i think rodgers has looked pretty good in pre-season. although he physically reminds me of the detmer brothers, and that porn star stache of his has got to go

I've been a packer fan since i was born, but this year looks bad. if they finish 8-8 Brett Favre better be in the pro bowl because he would have had a great year. with morency hurt and Jackson coming back from that concussion, Favre will have to carry that team on his old and tired back.

Viking fan posting from deep in WI. Hate to admit it, but the Pack is better than you think. Probably 10-6 or better this year.

I would agree, the pack has a real nice def. If the off can produce I see them challenging the Bears. Vikes are a big ? with Jackson at QB, and I see him struggling agst NFL def without top notch recievers. Lots of picks with poor thrown balls, but if he can keep that to min, the def should give them 6-7 or wins. I don't see any more. I guess the games agst the pack will determine who finishes ahead of each other. I see pack going 9-7 and the Vikes 7-9 or 6-10.

Vikes fan in Iowa,

The running game will come together. Someone will emerge and not be a star, but will carry enough of the load to be an added dimension late in the year as long as the Bret and Donald can get them thru the first 4-5 games with a .500 record. The defense is looking pretty solid and if Thompson has any brains he should be looking around for another good back and offering 1 of the 5 or 6 d-linemen as trade bate.

Running game is a concern but they put together a very good defense. I think they will go 9-7, 10-6 is pushing it.

The problem with them is Favre refusing to quit and handcuffing the organization. He's a shadow of his former self, and you know Mike McCarthy would love to put Rodgers in there and see what he has, but if he benches Favre he'll get run out of town. Really bad situation for a young team that needs a young quarterback to step up... and soon!

i think the vikes have the edge with their running game, but the nfc north is gonna be weird this year. the bears are the only sure thing, and that is not a lock with grossman. who knows when the lions are gonna make any headway. perhaps the pack can put something together. i like the d and who knows, they made edgar bennet, dorcey levens and ahman green look like great backs.

I think Detroit will have a better year this year than the Pack and the Vikings.

I hope not, but I think they will.

Vikes will have their #2 starting quaterback play in a few games. I think he is better anyway.

I think 8-8 is a very optimistic ceiling.

Being a vikes fan this is hard. I think the pack will actually have a good season. I think the offense is underated and the def is pretty good. Watch out chicago. But who knows maybe the vikes will surprise us all and turn some heads. Not holding my breath confused.gif

i know it's the first game, but that was a huge win.

the eagles are one of the best teams in the nfc, and the pack needed to get that lambeau swagger back. i think against a weaker defense, that new running back may put up some numbers.

That was a pretty good game all around! Offense needs some work (mainly Bubba), but the defense looked good and that kicker deserved the game ball! GO PACK GO!

    • Walleye #1
        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
