      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

How about that Adrian Peterson today? 224 yards at Chicago plus a well needed win! Now all we need is a decent OC and some pass coverage.

The kid's gonna be one of the best backs to ever play the game if he stays healthy.

In the post-game radio interviews, he referred to Peterson as "Chester Taylor's backup". Peterson didn't even get the bulk of the carries. Chili got bailed out by Peterson all game long and he has the gall to call him "Chester Taylor's backup".

He needs to quit returning kicks though. Despite how good he is, you're just asking for him to get injured doing that.

Definitely get him off the Return game.....I know NO moved Bush to the Return to give their playmaker more chances at the ball.....but I don't understand how any team can put their #1 guy out there at that position.....Reminds me of Tecmo Bowl and putting Woodson returning kicks only to have him injured quickly I might add......

As an NFL fan, I have never seen such a burst of acceleration from a RB when there is a hole in the D. Reminds me of Barry Sanders. If only T-Jax can be more accurate with his passes the opposing D will have their hands full and should leave a WR open downfield.

But he is not thier #1 guy. According to chester the molester (childress) he is just the #2 running back. confused.gif

I think he could have been a decent rb, he just had his head in the olympics instead of football.

Only if he plays for the right team.. If he plays for the Vikings for most of his career then, NOOOOOOOOO! He will NOT be the best back or even close to the best back to ever play the game LOL... Do you really think he can be better than some recent backs such as L Tomilson, P Holmes, and many more solid backs in history, while playing for the MN VIKINGS??

I dont think so!

Remember L. TOmilson broke the td rushing record. Can A Peterson ever do this while with the MN VIKINGS?

What are you talking about??? Who did Barry Sanders play for again? That's right, one of the perenial worst teams in the NFL during his career. Didn't effect him. Tomlinsonmade the Chargers a good team, they were a bad team with him as well. First three years with him they didn't make it over 8 wins, I think twice they finished in the bottom of the division. But LT managed just fine with a terrible team.

Why can't he be good with the Vikes, I think he proved you wrong before you even posted that. He has more yards than LT as well this year.

Yup,

Hate to pile on here but I recall many a year that "Sweetness" ran roughshod over the entire NFL on some of the worst Bear teams in history. Many years they had no quarterback, no recievers of any value and the entire NFL knew the Bears were going to run Payton left, Payton right, Payton up the middle. He did OK, didn't he?

R.I.P. Walter.

I agree. Sir Walter was on some terrible teams, as was Barry Sanders. Just thing how their statistics would look if they had an offensive line that Emmit Smith had his entire career (not counting the 1 year in Phoenix).

I don't know how this could have even been doubted. He was drafted by the Vikings who also have one of (if not) the highest paid(which makes them good?) o-line in the NFL. Barry Sanders pretty much did it all by himself, but AD has an O-line. Seeing what he did in Oklahoma everyone knew he had the talent, health was the question. Coming into the year I thought Chester Taylor was going to be the main man w/ Peterson learning the speed of the NFL. He has far exceded my expectations already. Don't forget Taylor had 1,214 yards last year and the team wasn't good, Peterson obviously can do it w/ the Vikes and once our QB situation is set, play action can make us a multi threat. I can't wait to see what happens when defenses have to play an honest pass defense against us.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!
    • Bigfatbert
      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated
    • JBMasterAngler
      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.
