      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.

New Jerseys are UGLY!!!

Recommended Posts

I saw the new jerseys when they came out this spring and thought they were OK. A little too busy for me but not as bad as they could have been. At least they left the horns on the helmet. But catching them in action for the first time last night in the first pre season game I thought they were some of the worst in the league!!! The biggest problem for me is the purple color they chose. What happened to the dark royal purple from the 60s 70s and 80s???? It was almost a navy blue back then. This new brighter, lighter purple SUCKS!!! They look like a bunch of lilacs running around out there. If it were up to me we would go back to the 60s look with purple pants on the road. I can't believe the number of the teams that have ruined the look of their jerseys. (Broncos, Bills, Bengals, Cardinals, Lions, Seahawks) There have been a few that have improved (Giants, Rams, Bucs) but I just hate when they throw all of the tradition out the window just to sell jerseys to all the fans that have to have the new one.

While I'm ranting, what's up with our field turf? It looks brown. The end zone writing is crap too. You can hardly read it. Why not put Minnesota in one EZ and Vikings in the other so the letters can be visible instead of cramming both into each EZ??? I swear the Vikings are trying to make the dome look as junky as possible just to get us to build them a new one.

The turf is going to look awkward during preseason. I'm sure they haven't taken out all the kinks yet because of baseball. They probably just slapped something together so they don't have to work as hard when the Twins have their next game...

Personally I kinda liked the jerseys myself. As for the turf and the dome...Its always been crap.

Look at the bright side. Almost every team that changed their long-standing jersey went on to either play in or win the Superbowl for the first time: Buc's, Bronco's, Rams, Seahawks

I can tell you one jersey I wouldn't go with. # 81 What a loser. Maybe they didn't give him enough money. Glad there are kids that pay attention to football and have heros hopefully none for this clown. Sorry to get off the subject here, I do like the new look too.

You know maybe the new owner and coaches have to make examples of this team. If your going to act like teen-agers so be it. Bring on the baby sitters. I have five girls of my own and can find time during the football season to be a baby sitter/taxi driver. Heck I would do it just for free tickets!!! Maybe the owner should just buy a bus and shuttle the boys back and forth to the bars. No wait then we would end up having the "Love Bus scandles". I sure wish I made 1/2 the money some of these football players make. Abviouslly these player think they are better then most people and the laws of America don't apply to their calibur of talent. Like I said in an earlier post some of these guys are just great role models for our kids growing up. I believe there shouldn't be three chances given to a star role model. What a joke. Hey Koren maybe the CFL will be looking for your top talent. You and the wiz kid can be roomys. Bring back Moss maybe he has grown up enough and has leared from his mistakes.

I agree about the home jerseys. I hate the new purple, too many colors on the jersey. The pants I hate the purple swoop. Only thing they did right on is purple pants on the road.

Sorry, but watching the game last night I though those purple pants were the ugliest thing I've seen in a long time....

I don't care for the new jerseys...kind of ugly, I think. Maybe they'll grow on me. I'll give 'em a chance.

I always liked the all-white road uniforms...the white pants with the white jerseys looked good. I think the Vikes and the Chiefs were the last teams to have all-white road uniforms. Shame to be going away from that. The purple pants suck.

After seeing the road whites I like them better then the old unis. I think they should go with the roads at home too like the cowboys, redskins, and panthers.

No -- they need to stick with purple at home. Nice to have a little color out there.

      I will be going out for the night bite on green this week. I need to find some more fish as the wife wants a fresh fish dinner.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated
    • JBMasterAngler
      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.
