One of my customers is a big time booster for Gopher football. Last spring he showed me a plan of the new stadium that they are planning on building. According to him its pretty much a done deal. Don't know what that information is worth but he seemed very encouraged. The plans looked very cool. I think it was a 48,000 seat stadium, with the ability to add seats in the future. If had a gopher hall of fame, and a couple restraunts. It was pretty bare bones but it was open air and on campus!!! Lets keep our fingers crossed.

I think open air and on campus are great ideas for the Gophers, but lets be realistic. The Vikings NEED a new stadium too and we can't afford to build two.

The U boosters need to get their heads out of their buttocks and do whats best for BOTH the Gophers and the Vikings instead of doing the U and saying the heck with the Vikings. The greater good is more important than a perenniely mediocre at best football team!

I would support tax dollars for the Goghers to get a new stadium, beacause I pay taxes and have stock in the UofM. At this point in time I would not support helping the vikes,(or twins for that matter) at least not as long as Red Mcombs owns the team. The vikes need to spend some money(on high quality players) to get some money.

I hope the gophers get their stadium, they(we) deserve it.

I would support a Gophers stadium as a fan and a taxpayer. The U needs it and deserves it. After going to places like Camp Randall and seeing what they have for atmosphere and excitement. It is a must.

The pro stadiums I support although, I do not believe I should have to give money to support billionaires like Pohlad or McCombs, but I believe it is in the best interest of our state and cities economically.

The taxes generated by the jobs at the stadium, players salaries (that includes visiting players also), and money spent at the games is a huge amount. If the teams leave, we are out that money and it has to be replaced. The way I look at it we either pony up and get them a stadium or we can let them leave when their lease is up and we can then pay extra taxes for the revenue lost. I would rather pay the extra tax and keep them, then lose them and pay more anyway.

what do you guys think the consensus is around the Twin Cities? Is it positive as a whole or more negative? What is gonna happen first; new stadium for the Gophs or Vikes?

I think it is fairly postive for the U. It is part of our tax system and a obligation of sorts for the state. I think the big hang up on the Vikes is that Red could build it himself and hardly notice the money was gone. People don't want to pay for it. Unfortunately, the reality is that somebody will eventually build the Vikes a stadium. If it is not us, we will lose them. Does anybody think St. Paul or the State is regretting building the XCEL? I know hockey is not playing but when they were and when they come back the city did/will add $1 to $2 mill a night to the economy. Add concerts, high school tournaments, etc.. It has been a pretty good deal.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
