I picked up chester taylor later in my fantasy draft to compliment LJ and Duece. Does Chester have any fantasy value this year with Adrian in the picture ?

chester taylor will start at the beginning of the year, but won't get as many carries as he did last year. But if Peterson can stay healthy he should have a good year.

Either Peterson or Marshawn Lynch is going to be the stud rookie RB

Solid performance by Peterson today. Not surprise that the scoring was done on defense though. Moss had 183 hards for NE today. Those were days.

Nice game for both players. 90+ yards and a score for each.

I hate to be negative following a win but I wouldn't expect that kind of production out of Peterson all year. He'll get his touches and TDs no doubt, but losing Chester Taylor in the first quarter set the table for him. We'll see how things go the rest of the year. Maybe he'll get more carries now.

I thought he looked really good. Glad to see he was able to go the full length without C.T. out there. Only good things to come from the #1 running back in the draft.

Looks like Peterson will be decent this year... If Vikings can ever get their passing game going, Peterson will be solid, I think.

As for chester, he MAY have lost his starting job... I doubt it, but he will lose a lot of carries to Peterson...

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
