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.

      Good morning all,   I will be heading up to camp with a couple family members at Devils Track Campground this weekend. I've caught plenty of smallies from shore there, but I was interested in the walleye population. This time, I will have my boat with me. Not looking for any honey holes, just some recommendations on what they may be biting on, or what depth they may be hanging in. I see some groups of islands near the south side of the lake... anybody know anything about fishing around those?    Any information is much appreciated. thanks in advance and have a great week!!

      Been pretty stable in the low 70s.  73, 74, depending on time of day..   With the cool nights, was 55 last night, and moderate days in the 70s, it seems likely to stay there.   Pleasant for water sports.

      I've heard some discouraging information lately as I chat with folks at the bow range. I was looking forward to the unlimited antletless harvest in 601 so I spent some time scouting the rather small WMAs we have and found some good sign. Word is that although the pressure isn't too bad for deer during archery season, the squirrel hunters will be thick. Not only will they crack at one in the tree you're in with a .22 but they just walk all over the place with no regard to your being there and ruin the woods as far as any possibility of deer traffic. Is it really that bad?    The problem is that our WMAs are so tiny that a few squirrel hunters can trash the whole morning hunt easily.    I love small game hunting too but anytime I'd see a hunter in a tree I would travel very far around him out of respect for other hunters. I realized last waterfowl season the majority of metro hunters don't have that respect though.

      Thanks, it was a great morning. Now that I'm addicted to the fly, what do I do with all that expensive spin gear??

      Any updates on water temps?
    • nmitchell17
      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck
    • srj
      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
