hopefully they've finally turned things around for the season. I guess after last season, I'd rather they start flat and slow and finish strong, then peak too early.

Taking a duece from Mankato doesn't turn anyone season's around. Tech was having a nice view from the top and got crushed by St. Cloud, loser of foru straight.

A sweep is a sweep. It's better than the alternative. grin.gif

I'm afraid this is going to be one of those "down" years for the mighty Gophs. They just don't show up consistently from night to night..Heck, sometimes (like tonight) period-to-period we don't know which team will show up. Thin in offense past 1st line if you ask me. "D" doesn't hit enough and if your "D" isn't physical you get guys rushing to and camping in front of the net w/ no worries of being knocked down. I didn't think much of Donny-Loos choice for captain, either. He is their 3rd or 4th best defenseman. Shaky carrying the puck, chooses wrong times to either step up in the play and gets himself out of position, makes ill-advised passes across the gophs zone when coming up the ice, etc. Kinda sounds like # 41 for the Wild, don't it?

Inconsistency has definitely ruled the roost thus far this season. A lot of that, obviously, can be attributed to the inexperience but there are also obvious areas to improve upon. I don't like to see all the cross-ice passing in their own zone (worst pass in hockey in my opinion) and the lack of a transition game is not good either.

I'll keep cheering. Let's go Gophers!

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
