I was at the game yesterday and I swear to god it was a home game for the Pack. They were cheering "Go Pack Go" throughout the whole game. When the Vikes had the ball it was alot louder when the Packers had the ball. Very classy of the Vikes fans cheering when Favre had the record TD pass they gave him a standing ovation. I was just glad I was surrounded by Packer fans where I was sitting, a joy to be around them.

Course it was a lot louder when the packers had the ball, the opposing teams fans always make the stadium loud. I was at the game too and it was loud when the packers had the ball. The pack did a great job not letting the crowd noise get too them.

History in the making! We are all lucky to be able to still watch the "Legend" Brett Favre play, and play so well. Watch him while you can, as he is like a Michael Jordan of football.

Although I think he is great, the Jordan comparison may be a little much. He is an all timer but I don't think he is THE ALL TIMER. We can debate it forever and his records not withstanding, if there is a Michael Jordan in football I think he is playing in Indianapolis.

Yea, it is great to be a WI fan when they win...but when they lose I have never heard so many whiners and complainers.

Nearly as bad as the Vikes.

Manning is good but he has great receivers, good pocket protection, and a running game. If this holds out for him for his career I'm sure he'll put up big #'s. But take some of them things away, and you may see his ability diminish.

Farve maybe didn't have Harrison, but he had still had plenty of nice recievers and a good line. He also has been supported by a stellar running game at times. I know you won't agree with me but Farve would not have a ring without Reggie White.

By the way, how has LLoyd done since he left Indy as a free agent. Maybe it was the QB that made the recievers not the other way around.

Manning rules and there is not a comparison with him to Favre...even in Favres prime. Favre has been a great quarterback, but Manning is fantastic. He makes the rest of the team look good. Because of his awesome passing, his line, receivers, and running backs look much better than what they are.

i wonder what kind of stats favre would have put up if he had marvin harrison or reggie wayne when he was in his prime.

My grandma would have great stats with the "right on the money" passes Manning makes.

And, he calls and changes plays so much depending on the defense, people are always open.

Only time will tell on how good Manning is? He has a ways to go yet.

We have to rub it in while we can, nothing last forever. Do I think the Badgers can be #1 or the Pack can go all the way, probably not but its nice to see them win a few games. I know how quickly teams can be good then all of the sudden stink. Got to enjoy it while it last.

The Packer fans I know arn't fair weather fans. They are die hard fans. Even when they stink theres not a empty seat unlike some Viking fans, the dome and blackouts.

I've never been a Brewers fan, but they had a good season. A winning record and just missed the playoffs. Unlike another team we know.

Packers and Badgers could lose every game for the rest of the season. I'm still going to be watch and cheer for them. I'am sure if the Vikings and Gophers had them records this forum would be quiet and there wouldn't be any bragging going on wink.gif Good luck hunting and fishing everyone.

WHAT????

Peyton Manning (age 31) is currently 7th on the ALL TIME list for passing TDs.

ahead of Joe Montana

11th on the list of all time passing yards. 10th on completions.16th on attempts.

He has the record for most seasons with 4,000 or more yards passing in a career. Manning is second on the list for highest career passer rating, behind only the retired Steve Young.

Hes had the greatest statistical season ever for a QB, hes a 7 time probowler, superbowl champion, and is a 2 time MVP.

What more does this guy need to do? He already has had a hall of fame career and hes not even close to finished!!!

Time will tell???? He has a ways to go? How much further do you think he has to go???? Does he have to cure aids or make world peace?

In the NFL it would take one big hit to take any one out.If Manning survives a few more years, (keeps a great offensive line), I'm sure his stats will be great. How old is he?

I wouldn't expect anything less from a true fan. With me being a Gopher fan and a Vikes fan, you can trust I understand staying by your team through thick and thin. crazy.gif I may be a little sensitive to things since we don't like losing to Green Bay but this forum used to be raging with Packer and Vikes fans a couple of years ago. The discussions are non-stop. Then most of the GB backers went away and did not spend much time here. Now they beat us, are at 4-0, and Farve gets his record and now they want to talk some more.

Nobody ever wants to talk with us when things are going poorly in GB.

I don't normally post here because I get ripped on, called names and pretty much told to go join a Wi. Site. Had nothing to do with the Packers not playing well. I'm just happy the way they started. Sorry man, my bad I won't post on the football forum again because your right its for Viking fans.

Funny thing is when I started this thread I never said anything about the Vikings or the Packers beating them. Just wanted to talk to a couple of other Wi. fans.

Hey Outdoor Ran,

Don't let them scare you off man! I am a loud and proud fan of my beloved Pale Hose and do battle all the time with Twinkie fans and Cubbie lovers. I also love DA BEARS so I go at it with Queens and Cheeseheads alike.

It's all good, man. We are all just big kids on this site. If you can take it as well as you can sling it this makes for some spirited debates and ranking on each other but it makes the day go by faster.

I'm guessing you are a Brew Crew fan so you might appreciate the fact that my two favorite baseball teams are The White Sox....AND WHOEVER IS PLAYING THE CUBS!!!

PS: Don't let the avatar fool you, I have a day left to pay off a bet I made to my favorite sparring partner Geno, who loves his Cubbies as much as I love my Sox.

Windy

Outdoor,

Point taken. My post was not for all, but instigated by one guy who has only posted once in the football forum since '05(to call Mike Tice a criminal) and then reappears with several posts this week. It is those types I was referring to. My bad for lumping a group together.

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.

      Also noticed or heard you say your using 4 lb. test line. Is that correct?? We used 10-12 mono and 15  flouro.  We sure love this lake. Can't sleep for next three weeks waiting to head up there LOL

      ago ·  Hey guys, I'm new to this site. Trying to learn more about this lake. My brother and I fished there last July 9-16-2016. We did good on all species, especially like and walleye. We had several rallies on smallmouth, but never put a solid pattern together. My brother had a 4 and 5 lber. On perch shad rap. I caught many 1-1/2 - 3 lbers on uvibe speed craws. Suspending jerkbaits caught all species well. I've been checking this site and Mr. Johnwis has some great info and video. If any of you out ther could help us get on them big smallies, we would greatly appreciate it. We're from southwest Louisiana and we'll be staying at island view lodge July 22-29 . Thanks and this is a great site

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.
