      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.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame is a joke

Recommended Posts

SledNeck

Cris Carter was not "selected" to the hall of fame.

Is there a "2nd best EVER at their position" player in NFL history that wasnt a first ballot hall of famer.

This is wrong and may the voters all burn in hades.

I think Carters attitude the last couple of seasons he played really struck a nerve for some of the writers/voters. I think some of the writers are starting to place more emphasis on a players last impresion before hanging up the cleats than the overall accomplishments on the field. I can see both sides of this and i think maybe there would be some good in keeping a players ego in check if he truley wants to be considered a hall of fame caliber player. In my humble opinion a hall of famer SHOULD be judged by BOTH his career stats as well as his actions off the field or on the sidelines.

Attitude? Ego?

Michael Irvin is in the HOF. With inferior stats.

The voters are a joke.

Ivvin is in the hall of fame? didn't know that, he's not half the reciever Carter was. Just goes to show how important a super bowl win and where you play is. Monk was awfully good though.

Was watching inside the NFL and Peter King was saying a lot of the voters were looking at correcting the wrongs of not putting a lot of folks through. I think CC shoujld have got in the first time though.

Its a crock how they select for the hall of fame. PRESS writers, not athletes, coaches or fans, writers. What a joke! CC was the best, I'd take him on my team ten times before I dropped down to coke-head Irvin!!!

Cris Carter was way overrated. No superbowl rings and just another wide receiver.

Buddy Ryan said all he could do was catch touchdown passes, sure could use a few these days. Vikes should consider him as a mentor to some of our young recievers.

I'd say he's a tad bit better than James Lofton.... I agree that his last 2 years of antics may have soured his chances. I'm sure Jerry Rice will make it in his first year of eligibility. Carter will be there eventually.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
