12 posts in this topic

SI recently announced that St.Paul is the new Hockeytown, USA. Sounds better here than in Detroit, MI.

Yeah, I seen that. They said in Detroit ticket sales were down and the were not selling out the Joe anymore. Hockeytown, USA is not Detroit, MI it is St. Paul, MN!!!!!

they did a good job in a short article describing how important hockey is here. It goes beyond the pro game unlike Philly and Det. Ive met some folks from Buffalo and they can be almost considered Canadian in the way they feel about hocley.

Any place with a failed/failing Ford plant is off the hockeytown list.

A failing Ford plant is just a matter of time, and there will be more with the recalls they are issuing.

I thought Eveleth was Hockeytown.

For percentage of population, these northern cities probably have more players in hockey than St. Paul.

What in the world would a failing Ford plant in ST. Paul or Detroit have to do with the topic of this thread?????

MN is the State of Hockey! We have a long rich tradition to be proud of that no other town or state can compare. So lets be proud of all the players from Warroad to Wabasha and Morehead to Mora. Heck we are the home to the Hanson Brothers. And then there are so many good teams in college and high school, even old timer leagues. Remember the Miracle on Ice was not the sole work of Jim Craig and Mike Eruzione, I believe there were some guys and maybe a coach from MN. Come to think of it Boston did not even get mentioned in that article. So it stands to reason that Hockeytown USA is the capital of the State of Hockey.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
