      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.

Is it just me?

Is it just me or does anyone else get that throw something at the tv feeling during Vikings games? Not saying that I could coach or play in the NFL, but seriously what is the problem? Are we just doomed to be laughing stock of the league?

Worse is after the game today we'll all be able to see the Colts and Pats play with perfection on both sides.

I dont know.. I just watched a guy set the single game rookie rushing record AND the NFL single game rushing record. Not sure I'd call that laughing stock.

The 109.9 yd FG return for a TD was kinda funny...I thought.

SOOOOO, now the Vikes are on the defensive end of both the longest run from scrimmage, Dorsett, and the longest td play in NFL history. NICE

sorry this was a halftime rant. ap had an awesome game and the o-line clicked, defense made good plays, and our third string qb came in and played w/o any big mistakes. all in all it was a good feeling win. this was an example of what this team is capable of, so why don't we see it week in and week out.

question is, now can we go into cheesehead land and dominate a good packers team and make it two in a row.

consistency, ups and downs, stupid penalties, questionable decisions, and not playing to expectations are what have upset me all season.

Exactly! And when I don't like what I see, for instance the end of the 2nd quarter, I eat then take a nap. Beats working. Fun game to watch, the parts I was awake for anyway... wink.gif

I don't think I could be happier as a Viking fan at this moment considering how things looked after the end of last season the upside/future of this team is encouraging to say the least.

Go Vikes.... grin.gif

What a game, things are looking up! Defense looked really good, qb looked decent, even jackson looked his best, and rice has a good future if they would start throwing to him more, and A.P. Wow this kid is the stud, if he keeps this up he will give the season record a good shot! Just think if he was the starter in the first 6 weeks! They need to find a way to get AP the ball 25-30 times a game. The Vikes are a good reciever, and a qb a way from our first super bowl win. One more thing, Childress didnt seem to make any game loosing decisions, besides maybe the 57 yd fg attempt, but that wasnt so bad, looks like he figured out that if he gives the ball to AP, he gets a win! grin.gif

The Vikings have a awsome running game, with AP and CT, run defense is unbeatable, good punter, I am pretty sure Rice will turn out to be a good reciever, if the Vikes had a calvin Johnson, and picked up Drew Breese, do you think they wouldnt be unbeatable? I know are pass defense has not been par, but they sure looked good yesterday!

That run game was the result of some incredible offensive line play. Those guys OWNED the line of scrimmage. They also had great blocking on the outside and downfield as well. Peterson gets all the credit but he wouldn't have had that day if it wasn't for the linemen. Chester Taylor ran the ball fairly well too when he was in.

I love it when the offense can run!

Can you imagine our running game getting better?

It will if we ever get some hint of a passing game and teams can't stack 8 or 9 in the box anymore.

Awesome game, Peterson... AND THE ENTIRE DEFENSE. WAY TO GO!

Lets see what next week brings. Will the D return to sitting back and taking it, or will they continue to aggressively blitz and control the game? I would guess the Pack will be ready for either scenario, so STAY AGGRESSIVE. If we do, it's almost guaranteed to result in a Farve pick or two.

Now we've seen what they're capable of in the positive sense grin.gif. With a lot of luck, we hopefully won't again see what they're capable of on the other end of the spectrum. Odds are they won't maintain that type of excellent gameplay week after week, but hopefully we've seen the last of the embarrassing futility displayed over the past year and a half.

A guy can dream anyway, right?

GO VIKES.. !!!

I agree, but I have to add one more thing- a head coach, too

Did anyone else notice that T Jack looked pretty happy to be standing on the sideline?

Good qbs do struggle in their first season or two, but he's not getting the experience he needs when he misses half the year with injuries.

You also have to take into account that it was San Diego that they played. That being said, I haven't seen that poor of a team in awhile? The queens did stop the run, but that was all San Diego could of possibly offered from what I seen.Their QB looked worse than ours!

      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.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
