Official FishingMinnesota NCAA Tournament Pick Em Contest

42 posts in this topic

Since the opening tip of the Big Dance is less than three weeks away, I thought I'd drum up some interest in getting everybody organized into one contest. Last year we had two different contests with two different scoring systems and two winners. This year we want one clear winner!

Scoring is default Yahoo scoring which you can read about when you sign up. The play-in game isn't scored.

This year men's college basketball is wide open, sign up and see if you can pick the right winners.

You need an account at Yahoo. Do a yahoo search for yahoo tourney pick em 08 and sign in. The league number is 14510, the password is basketball. Picks have to be in by March 20.

So I suppose I'm going to have to show everyone how you go about doing this then huh.

You don't watch a single game all year. You make your picks right at the deadline going by nothing other than your gut feeling. You hoist the trophy at the end of the year. grin.gif

Hmmm, a Gator would eat a badger, plus my favorite color is orange. And I've always liked visiting Florida. Let's go with Florida. grin.gif

Tons of fun! I'm in for sure! The teams with better mascots or names are good ones to pick as well! (My 2 cents anyways)

you aren't going to win unless you have Notre Dame v Clemson in the finals!

I like Clemson's press but thats about it. I think they rank 310th in FT shooting pct. Tough to win a close game when you have to knock down FT down the stretch.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
