      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.

Shaq possibly getting dealt

Recommended Posts

All over ESPN. Shaq to the Suns for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks. Would be interesting to see Shaq back in the West.

Dumb move if Phoenix does it. Huge salary, doesn't fit their run and gun style, always hurt, doesn't defend. Marion is unhappy (which is beyond me because he gets his bread and butter playing with Nash) but still, they should look elsewhere.

As long as Heat have Shaq, they will be salary burdened. T-wolves fans should root for this trade to fail so the Heat are bad for a couple years and the Wolves cash in on that draft pick.

Isn't that draft pick lottery protected anyway? Or is there a time limit to where it would go unprotected?

I believe it is, if the Heat have a lottery pick they get to keep it.

This year it's lottery protected, next year if it's in the top ten it's protected, and by 2010 its unprotected. So they need to stay bad for 3 years pretty much.

The move officially went through. Marion and Banks have 20 million in salary combined, compared to Shaq's 21 mill a year. I guess Phoenix runs in transition with 4, defends with 5, and now has a half court offense. If Shaq gets healthy and pledges to play defense, he could get yet another ring. Top to bottom that is a pretty talented team.

Phoenix always lacked a big guy come playoff time so they went out and got the biggest of all. However, I remember when Shaq was with the Lakers when Del Harris was coaching and they played run and gun and they didn't do squat. It wasn't until Phil Jackson took over and the daunted "triangle" offense that Shaq really fluorished. It will be interesting to see what Phoenix does with Shaq.

well its a done deal, and the way that Nash was talking, he stated that its going to give them something they have never had (big guy in the middle) I think its going to help them when it comes to the times where they need that bigger guy in the middle. Ya they run a run and gun, but think about this, if there running the run and gun, and its not working, they have shaq in the middle to play then in and out game. I think its good fit for him, and hes going to help out the team alot.

the way marion has been playing as of late they sure didn't need him......I think this might work for Phoenix.....they don't need Shaq right now they can do fine without him but hopefully he is healthy enough with at least 20 games left to get use to the team and then they can sit him and run and gun and bring him in and start to slow things down and use the pick and rolls or in and outs with the shooters Phoenix has!!! Kinda hard to sit a 20 mill player but Shaq is useless if he isn't healthy...

Phoenix always got ousted in the playoffs because of their size. Probably would have happened this year also. Now they can bang with Utah, San Antonio, Dallas, and other top teams in the West.

Yep.... NBA titles are not won running and gunning!

I think its a good move on the Suns part especially if Shaq is healthy for the playoffs.

Also I think Miami is much better team right now because of the trade.

I agree. Phoenix got bigger and Miami got younger. I see Marion can opt out after this year. Will be interesting to see what he does. I know he didn't want to be the 3rd guy in Phoenix behing Nash and Stoudamire. Miami has Wade and thats about it.

he can opt out but if he does I am not sure if he will find someone to pay him the 17.2 ( I think) million for next year....so I would imagine he stays with Miami next year and tries to get an extension done there........

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff

      Anoka county union says it is opening in the sports authority building in Coon Rapids. Cant Wait!

      I've found it interesting that the past couple years we haven't seen quite the numbers of rustys on our beach in the summer.

      There were a lot of cabbage beds on the North side of Pine Is. and on the far East end of Big Bay. Gone now! Cliff

      I never guarantee safety. Others in similar position are out on Shields. I would assume German is the same. I would do it just not telling you to do it.

      I have a skid house on Mille Lacs, the yellow perch has is no joke, camera all day long perfect sized perch for them to eat. The walleye numbers are strong, regardless what dnr says. The tough bite this year does kind of stink, but it's good for the lake. Every fish you catch is nice and healthy, and as previously stated usually big. We have been fortunate enough to get a couple slot fish (unicorns) out this year
    • FishinCT
      Just out of curiosity where were the cabbage beds on the east end? Rustys have been infested ever since we started fishing the east side

      The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.
