Where does everybody watch the Super Bowl?

14 posts in this topic

As a restaurant manager for many years, I have had an "argument" with every owner about how to get people into the establishment. With the exception of CO (since everyone there is already away from home), I have had a hard time filling the bar for the Super Bowl. My stance is that most people get together and have parties at someones home or just hang out with roomates, husbands and wives and family. How does everyone here spend Super Bowl Sunday?

I've never watched one at a bar. Even in College where I spent most of my free time in a bar. There always seems to be a party where everyone brings a beverage and something to eat to share. That way you can hear all the commercials too.

60" Plasma HDTV, Lazy Boy recliner, plenty of good beer, NAD/Canton/NHT stereo that kicks. Why would I want to go to any bar and then get a DUI when I come home?

I noticed alot of bars are advertising all you can eat and drink for $25.00, that is a recipe for a dwi. I usually watch the game at home or at a friends house.

I can't wait to show this thread to my boss grin.gif This is what I've been saying all along, I would much rather watch the game in the comfort of my own home with my couch, TV, cheap beverages, TONS of food and good friends.

Good lord shiner! What kind of closed-minded dictator do you work for!?!?!? J/K.

Can't watch the Super Bowl at a bar. Gotta do it at home, like others have said, with good (and cheap) food and drink, good friends, and a place to kick up your legs and make yourself comfortable.

im surprised that nobody has chimed in that has a nice permy with TV's etc. that said they were going to watch the game on the lake. if I could do that, fish and watch the game I would in a heartbeat.

I also have to say I have never been to a bar to watch the game. I will take my comfy couch, HDTV, surround sound and fireplace.

In the comfort of my home in front of the fireplace. I don't have HDTV and all the electronic goodies, but I'll take watching it at home over a bar any day.

My wife and I have the option of three different Superbowl parties. I agree that a bar is great for Monday night football but not the Superbowl.

This year and last year I have borrowed a projector, 100" screen and stereo system and watch the game on that. It is pretty sweet seeing the players in almost fullsized.

At home and having people over. Bars are spendy and too many people.

Either at home or the neighbors. Usually go to my mom & dad's house, but not this year.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
