Roseau - Warroad

I'll second Roseau-Warroad. Neighboring towns, both of them being hockey powerhouses, and both of them having lots of history in the state tournament. It doesn't get any better than that.

By far Roseau-Warroad.

I went to high school in Elk River and Elk River-Moorhead was pretty big.

Biff - did you see that Elk River- Moorehead section finals game that went 4 OT? I was at that game, probably the best hockey game I've ever seen, high school, college, pro anything. I think the Elk River goalie had over 60 saves. What year was that? 95, 96?

I'll agree the northern rivalries are the best, but how 'bout in town?

Hill Murray and White Bear Lake always seemed to meet in the section final, and it always seemed to go into OT.

Never a dull game, and even reg season games were fun as Aldrich was always packed.

One of the best that I can think of was the Hibbing vs. Grand Rapids games back in the early 80's. Any of the section 7 games were all cross town battles.

The Duluth Cathedral teams of the late 60's against the world.. They played as an independent against anyone in the state then went on to win I think it was 4 catholic state championships. They would play Duluth East and fill the Arena over 5000 people. Unheard of for high school hockey then.

edina and tonka

jefferson and burnsville

those were two powerhouse rivalries in the late 80's early 90's. Growing up in the metro, the jaguars were the dream team to beat.

I was at that game. I didn't go to many games in high school because I played basketball but that game was at St. Cloud State and there was no room to stand or sit. I can't remember what year that was. Maybe 1994 because I was in 9th grade when it happened. Great game.

D. East CEC is my favorite, but Warroad Roesau has to be the biggest.

Greenway-Grand Rapids Two schools whose students are neighbors and rivals, the kids often knew the guys on the other bench at least by reputation. Big School Small School, Rich hockey tradition dating back decades for both, Plus it is on Da Range.

I would agree with all the "Roseau-Warroad" chat but being that I played for Grand Rapids, I'm going to have to go with Greenway and Grand Rapids. However, the rivalry isn't near as storied as it once was.

Only thing is greenway hasnt really been able to compete with grand rapids the last couple years. Speaking of Cec duluth east that game is coming up next thursday. East got beat by white bear in overtime yesterday and Cec beat white bear 3-0 today so that will be a good game. Being from cloquet im gonna have to go with cec. grin.gif

Hey Biff, you know who I am. That was a great game! Do you remember the mascot fight before the game? Remember who that was? LOL smile.gif (not me, but it was a friend of ours)

I'll go with Roseau v. Warroad and Grand Rapids v. Greenway. The Falls, entering their 60th year of high school hockey, played Hibbing recently for the 121st time. The record stands 67-50-4 in favor of the Falls.

I was at the ER-Moorhead game, too. Matt Cullen, now in Charlotte, was a big gun for Moorhead. He had a couple good seasons for St. Cloud State. That night, the Gophers were in town to play SCSU and I was thinking that game would be delayed.

I didnt know the Falls hadany rivalries. They were a dynasty for a time so I guess they would get some one to match up against.

Another vote for Roseau v. Warroad.

My dad played for Roseau in the mid 50's, so we make it a family tradition to watch these two teams go at it.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      oops - duplicate post.

      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.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).

      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

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.
