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.

      Getting these big fish back in the water as soon as possible is important in summer heat.

      Thanks guys! JB-how do you get the Mepps down deep?
    • rundrave
      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup
