Easier to go hunting all day on sundays!

I agree, I bleed purple and will always be a fan, but I just have a hard time suffering through games like the last two.

I'm not sure which makes me more angry - watching the Vikings play, or myself for not making other plans on Sundays. I'm starting to think the latter...

Our beloved Purple and Gold are a shadow of their former selves, that's for sure.

Zygi and Brad Childress may have a plan and a strategy that will pay off in a year or two, but I can't see it happening. We either have a good offense or a good defense on this team, never both at the same time, and you need both units to be at least passably good to have a hope of a Super Bowl win.

I see Brad being canned after making us all suffer through another season of this (after the '08 season) and the team having to start all over again in '09.

If the pathetic play of the last couple weeks continues there will be TV blackouts anyway, so deciding whether to watch the Vikes or go hunting won't be an issue unless it's an away game.

What makes it even worse is that the hated Packers and the ever-annoying Bert Farv are steamrolling every team they face, and may just be the real deal. Man, I despise Farv, but I sure wish he had been a Viking all these years. laugh.gif We would probably have had 3 SB wins through the Cris Carter/ Randy Moss/ Robert Smith years with Bert at the helm.

Look at the bright side: The way Holcolmb played on Sunday at least you guys don't have a QB controversy. laugh.gif

If the games keep going the way they are I hope Brad doesnt make it to the end of the year. How can a big money O line be so inept. I dont care who you stick in at quarterback, we will lose with the way they are playing.

I wouldnt have given Brad the chance to come back this year.

But I dont know that much about the game.

I hope childress looses his job by the end of the year. A good coach should be able to make adjustments when needed, not stick to a game plan through the whole game. Detroit and KC both killed our offense by blitzing every down. You would think a few adjustments in the offensive scheme should be made?? Just my 2 Cents

The trouble goes beyond Chilly. They keep drafting the same old crap. The free agents they bring in are playing out their careers.

I agree they have had some horrible draft picks, but I am very happy with this years draft pick. Heck AP is our offense

Yeah it would be REAL bad without him...Christ I get absolutely sick of watching the opposing team just abandon the running game and complete pass after pass. We make every QB we play look like a pro bowler.

If you play in multi fantasy football leagues like I do, you will be glued to the tv screen on Sundays and MOnday nights!

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
