      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Did a few Sioux players leave their team today to bolt for the pros too? wink.gif At least the WCHA is still in it. I almost hate to say it but go BADgers. Ouch that hurt to type.

Your team dominated the game, obviously had more talent, had a couple of defensive breakdowns and sub-par goaltending. Now you know what it’s like to be a Gopher fan!

A choke is a choke and the Sioux choked!! I was in Orlando at the ESPN zone on the boardwalk and was lovin' every minute of it! Those poor people up in the Red River area probably deserved better, but it was not happening this year.

Why does North Dakota like Holy Cross so much?

Finally, a team that can beat the Gophers at "The Ralph"

So let me get this straight, it's more painful or worse to choke first as opposed to going farther and getting closer to the ultimate goal of a championship and then losing?? They both hurt, but if my team was one game away from a national championship showdown and lost, it would hurt pretty bad. shocked.gif

Buzzsaw-

I'm sorry but there is NO way you can call the Sioux loss to BC a bigger choke than the gopher's loss to Holy Cross. It's not even arguable. The Sioux were an underachieving team much of the season that turned it on at the end and ended up having a bad night at the worst time. The goophers were the bet team in the country for most of the season and lost to a nobody. A bad loss is one thing and will be forgotten but to choke as hard as the goophers did, that loss will be in the record books.

I said which was more painful. The Gophers definitely choked on the big one, a much bigger choke than the Sioux... but losing the game that would send your team to the national championship game had to hurt more as they were so close. With the Gophers playing the way they were at the end of the year, my hopes went down as did my expectations where as the Sioux were peaking and I'm certain expectations were high as could be. I hope you see my point, I wasn't under the false hope that Minnesota would win it based on how they were playing at the end of the year, that doesn't mean I wasn't disapointed, as I was very disapointed. But if my team was flying high and then my goalie gave up a bunch of goals against BC and we lost by one in the quarterfinal... I personally would have been more disapointed.

Hey Buzz

Just keep telling youself that and maybe you'll be able to convince yourself it's true. In 5 years hardly anybody will remember who lost in the semis in the frozen four, but people will comeback with smart comments about Holy Cross for a long, long time.

Also, if you were to insert SC for BC, it would be about the same situation wouldn't it. So technically you've got both.

It should be interesting to see who is actually on the rosters in the WCHA come next fall.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier today announced that the team has signed North Dakota junior Drew Stafford to a three-year contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Stafford is currently on the United States roster and playing in the World Hockey Championships in Riga, Latvia.

"I'm looking forward to starting my professional career," Stafford told the Grand Forks Herald.

Stafford is the third member of the Fighting Sioux to give up eligibility, as Travis Zajac and Matt Smaby did so in April.

Stafford was the first pick of Buffalo, 13th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

      Darn you guys!!   How am I supposed to stay at work and pretend to be interested now? There's nothing better than bow hunting turkeys in the spring after a long winter!

      Hey all just a reminder you will need a new license March 1!! Well it looks like we should be ice fishing for another month or more. There is some coming, so if you need to get you house off the lake it might be wise do it now. bites: green crappies, little elk gills sorting but you will catch them eaters, skogman has good from numbers of gills and crappies, and Lori lake for crappies. the turkey fever is starting to set in for me

      Hi @Rick, I'm also looking to take my family out this weekend. I  have a 3/4 ton with a 8x24 ice castle. Was looking at Shields or German. Is it pretty safe with my rig? I know some of these smaller lakes are aerated and can have some soft spots. Just want to be extra safe with the family. Also, the fishing been ok down there? Thanks in advance! Justin

      Hey @jlang_04, i'm looking to take my kids down that area and was curious how's the ice for a 3/4 ton with a ice castle 8x24. I'm sure the ice is thick enough but I also know some lakes are aerated or have current and the ice can be soft in some spots. So I just want to be safe with my family. Also, how's the fishing down there?  Thanks, Justin

      Up until about seven or eight years ago we were on Head-o-lakes bay. Minimal to no Rustys. Just the old school guys with the big blue boxer-mit claws. We were seeing rounded gobies.  We're on Frazer now. Wow! It's indescribable how many of those buggers there are. We've been trying to do our part by having frequent crawfish boils. Haven't made a dent but fun and tasty to try.

      will definitely be hunting turkeys again this year.  Love chasing these birds. Intend to go the archery route this year for the first time.  I have 2 kids that always are excited every year, until a couple of early mornings wain thier enthusiasm!  Figuring archery will allow me go on those days the kids dont want to wake up and I think I have something figured out.  Hope my skills will be up to the challenge.

      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks
