      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.

Well so far, the Pats have played horrible in the 1st half, and they Giants are giving up the ball.

Anyones game so far.

[PoorWordUsage] off! I absolutely hate New York and Eli. I would've liked to have seen history in the first 19-0 team. Oh well maybe someone will do it in our lifetime.

Your so correct. IF they would have let him sit back in the pocket, the game would have been alot different.

The game was a total sleeper. All except the last Giant drive.

The commercials were pretty lame also in my [PoorWordUsage]. Lots of money for bad commercials.Halftime concert was alright, it got me more fired up than the game. ole

Thought it was a good game. Especially from a defensive standpoint. Commercials were 50/50. Some were great, some were kind of lame.

I thought it was pretty boring until the end, but that sure was a great finish.

I thought NE looked flat and disinterested in the game. NY got lucky with Eli's Hail Mary when he was in the grasp to continue to the drive for the winning TD. Seemed to be the story of their playoffs.

Congrats to the NY fans out there. It appeared that they just wanted it more. NE looked a little flat.

I agree. A couple made me chuckle, but very few were all that great.

Definately wanted and thought I KNEW the Pats were gonna kill 'em, but Giants came out to play and put heavy pressure on Brady. Boring game until the end, never would have though Eli could pull off a drive to win it at the end but but congrats to them and their fans. Disappointed in the Patriots though, I wanted to see the record happen.

Game ball to the Giant's defensive team.

To hold the Patriot's to 14 point's total for the game, who would have bet on that one!!

I agree. I really think they thought by just stepping on the field the game would be over. The Giants just wanted it more. And what was up with Billichik leaving with 2 seconds on the clock. What a sore loser. He got it handed to him and he should have taken it like a man. He didn't leave games when they were blowing out their opponents.

NE got BEAT. The giants kept pressure on Brady and in doing so kept him from standing back there and picking them apart. Any good HS QB could complete 70% of his passes given enough time.

I thought Belichek was totally classless leaving before it was over.

why did "the greatest coach of our generation" go for it on 4th and 13 with a chance to attempt a 49 yard field goal and possibly go up by 10? or at least kick a punt and play for field position?

Even though I wanted the Giants to win, (saved me $100 from a bet made at our FF draft), Eli still sucks. I thought for sure he was going to blow it on that last drive.

Well things are looking just peachy here in the Windy. I made one of the greatest bets of all time on the game. I had the Giants with the points with the following options: If the Giants covered the spread but did not win the game I would have won half but if they won the game outright I doubled my money, double G! Sweet. Even better was watching that tool, Randy Moss, celebrate after a mediocre touchdown catch after the defender fell down. Moss did nothing that whole game and then to watch him do his "Superman" just really got me geeked!

Then to watch Eli come back and stick it in their collective rears was sweet. The true "Superstar" was David Tyree, after cutting his route short on a failed pass to the sidelines and having Eli yell at him he proceeded to make the greatest catch this 48 year old has ever seen. With the defender in position to make the pick and then to catch the ball and press it to your helmet while going down and having the defender trying to pry your hand from the ball....OUTSTANDING!

Like my Monsters of the Midway in 85 Defense wins ballgames. The best offense is a good defense. They were on Brady all day like white on rice and that defense got a ton of their "ugly" all over Brady's pretty boy face!

Additional bonus: My second favorite team after DA BEARS is the Miami Dolphins, dating back to when I was a lad watching the 72 team go perfect. Their record is still intact as the only perfect season including the Super Bowl.

Did not think much of the commercials either, a few snickers but that's all folks!

Bingo! I was looking for someone to question that play, and I never heard anyone of the commentators bring it up at all. Hind-site is 20/20 but that play was a big factor. 49 yard field goal is not that great of a risk, but 4th and 13? What were they thinking? I'd feel better taking my chance with field goal on that one.

Batter,

Really showed a lack of confidence in their FG kicker IMO.

And a lack of confidence in their punter's ability to pin the Giants down near their own endzone.

I thought the Pats' play calling wasn't very good. They weren't able to sustain drives like the Giants.

I didn't think this game was at all boring. I love watching a good defense do their thing, and we got that all night long. Seeing Brady get knocked down that often was a real treat.

Eli was good, yeah, but the D won that game.

I was hoping the Giants win, and they did! No ring for Moss!

T.O., Moss, and Chad Johnson and deserve no ring for their terrible attitudes.

But, the main thing...I won $20 from my father-in-law when I bet the Giants would win the coin toss. And they did!

      It's go time, i pretty much have all my gear ready for end of March for NE. Our first hunt is archery only then I get to come home and get even with the pipe bomb. Good luck Wanderer once you get that first they just start to drop after that. Bow or shotgun they are a blast. Bisonguy, Scout scout scout. The more you know what the birds are doing and want to do will help. Being a better woodsman and knowing your land and what the birds are doing will put more birds in the dirt then great calling. Patience is another huge part of turkey hunting. I am 1st to want to start running and gunning and give up on a bird i've been working but over the years have got a lot better and just need to give some setups a chance before moving. Good luck be safe.

      Anyone have a chance to play with these yet? I'm thinking of getting one to add a second unit to my boat. I have a hook 5 already and it is decent for what I use it for. Also, if I stay with just the original hook series, anyone know if there is a way to make a copy of the lake chip?

      Cliff is right. If the upper jaw extends past the lower jaw or lip (aka an underbite), then it’s a whitefish. If the lower lip is even with or extends past the upper lip, then it’s a Cisco.  This according to the DNR website. Cisco’s also seem to have an irredescent hue to them vs. whitefish, which in Lake V have a slight brown/yellow hue to them. Hard to explain in words. Bleeding fish...plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it.  I gill them. Leaves your fillets pearly white and creates way less blood and slime during the fillet process. Many say the fillet tastes better too.

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area? 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!

      I hear the panfish are kicking it up a bit? Any word out there?
