      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.

Did I hear right,

Moss and Brady are skipping the Pro Bowl? Cry babies! Be a man and show up if you are honored enough to get picked. What is the worse thing that can happen, you spend a week in Hawaii and don't get into the game. You know if the Pats would have won the Super Bowl, thier mugs would have been all over Hawaii!

the pro bowl is a joke anyways. turn it into a golf tourney or something worth watching.

Doesn't Brady have an injured ankle?? Moss who know's why he doesnt want to go. I saw Favre passed on the pro bowl also, Garcia is taking his place. I don't even bother watching the pro bowl.

Wild,

I guess I can give Brady a pass but why would he not announce it before the game? I guess he might not want to tip the fact that he was hurt but everybody knew that anyway. I think if I was honored by the selection I would show up, take a series of snaps, hand the ball off a few times and then stand on the sidelines and wave to the fans. This is one of the all star games that really drives me crazy with all the players declining to go. Moss though is another story....TOOL! Agreed?

By far the worst all star game of the 4 major sports.

All "all-popular" games are boring and pathetic. At least baseball means something and they try....basketball, hockey, and football are just pointless....last year at the pro bowl I think the biggest hit was on a punter......basketball no defense...and also hockey no d and no checking.......where is the intensity when they played hard in these games..i.e Pete Rose knocking over the catcher....Good stuff!!

I can see it both ways, I wouldn't want to see A.P blow his knee out because of a hard hit or Gaborik for the wild risk an injury because of check along the boards.

Rundrave,

Not sure about Urlacher but if he did then that would be wrong too! I just think that the attitude of the players reflects on the product on the field. I agree with whoever posted on this thread that said NFL Pro Bowl is the worst of the 4 major sports. If you don't think it is an honor to be elected then you should withdraw your name at the start of the season and say that you will not attend even if you are chosen. Then the fans could see who the real "stars" are.

Tommie Harris has been hurt all year with a nagging groin and hammy injury and just had surgery on his knee I believe.

As for Briggs, put yourself in his shoes. You are about to sign a contract somewhere that will be huge. Why in the world would you want to risk getting injured (Drew Brees) in a meaningless Pro Bowl and risk getting a huge payday. I would skip out as well. Now that I think about it, he did have an injury and didn't play in one of the last three or four games.

His teammates seem to like him and his coach has nothing good to say about him. Since I dont know him personally I would say that based on what people who work with him say, Yes, he is a stand up guy and performs his job well.

98 rec. 1493 yards 23 TDs wow!

Yes, his current team seems to like him. And as long as things are going well he is likable. Ask the Raiders, or the Vikes that played with Randy when they were struggling. I think you would find a different opinion of the guy.

Thanks Fish,

My thought exactly but I will let Sled speak his mind.

Everybody is always a good winner, being a good loser and acting with class when things are not going your way is the mark of a true "stand up" guy. Like an old timer once said about touchdown celebrations....Act like you been there before. I think the coolest thing to do is when a guy just hands the ball to the ref and bolts to the sidelines to celebrate with his team! That's "stand up".

The should get the guys together and just have a fun competition...not a game. The Pro Bowl is a joke.

But still, it is an honor to be selected and you should go! If you don't go, it shows you have no class.

actually moss was well liked in the locker room at minnesota...after he was traded for "being a distraction" they asked the players and they all said they liked him.

the fact is mccombs didn't want to sell the team leaving a superstar there with a chance to win.

remember moss leaving was supposed to help duncecaps i mean culpeppers progression...lmmfao

      I will be going out for the night bite on green this week. I need to find some more fish as the wife wants a fresh fish dinner.
    • Wanderer
      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!
    • Bigfatbert
      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated
    • JBMasterAngler
      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.
