I agree with the AA Roseau but the Falls has a tough task at hand. Virginia, Marshall and Hibbing. I went to the IF vs HIB game and was not impressed with the Falls. Hibbing whooped them pretty easy. Maybe the Falls had a bad night or Hibbing just had a good night. The sad thing is any team in the section 7a can win. Go Bluejackets!!!

I am hoping for a back to back title for Roseau but they need to win sections first then get past two teams at state to the finals and maybe they'll see Edina, Minnetonka in the finals. Class A, I think Warroad will be done after the quarterfinals. I' Falls is a good choice to win for Class A

I dont think the falls will be able to get past duluth marshall and they will have their hands full tonight with hibbing. While were on the subject how about Cec knocking off Duluth east 6-5 today in the 7AA semifinals. Go jacks!!

Roseau (28-0) is in. I see that two schools that "don't recruit" are in the A tournament: Duluth Marshall and St. Cloud Cathedral.

Will Little Falls get a win this year at the tourney? Anyone see many Section 6A games this year? Word is it's a bit soft.

Watched many LF games this years, sect 6 is not the toughest by any means but with Alex, Fergus Falls, and to a lesser extent Apollo, it does still have good competion. I do think LF deserved a seed in the tournament, but in turn ended up drawing St. Thomas Academy #1 seed in class A. It will be a tough game but LF is good enough to beat them and anyone in class A, Have to beat the best to be the best, the Flyers will make noise.

GO FLYERS!!

(I maybe slightly bias)

Alex and Fergus are both weak teams IMO. The Fergus program went downhill shortly after going to single A and leaving Section 8 when they played solid teams like Bemidji,Moorhead,TRF,Warroad, and Roseau just to name a few. Don't be fooled by their state tourney births. I wish the tourney was still only one class. I hope your Flyers do knock off St. Thomas, but it'll be a tall order.

    • Walleye #1
        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.
    • Hoey
      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
