I don't know about the rest of you, but I have been very impressed with what we have seen so far. His composure in the pocket and the strength of his arm look like someone who has been in the NFL for a few years. Not too bad for a rookie.

TJ looks like he's the real deal. I know it is way too early to send him to the pro bowl but he really looks good right now. Honestly, he's the only reason I watched the game tonight. Wanted to see if last weeks performance was a fluke or not. I guess not.

As long as Mike McMahon is not our backup, I'll be happy. Hopefully Jackson won't see a snap all year. But he definitely looks like a guy that could be a solid starter in a few years.

It's hard to tell, there's no doubt he has arm strength and athletic ability. If he can play well against first team defenses that are throwing different schemes at him and still being productive I'll truly be impressed, I just don't think we'll see that unless BJ gets hurt and the Vikes are having a horrid season or maybe next years pre-seasons games. With that being said, he looks very good and I'd love it if he works out so all the second guessing know it all draft guru's who questioned the trade up to get the kid can just eat crow.

I think McMahon better get used to being #3 on the depth chart. He has played horribly. I agree. TJ has to see a multitude of schemes before we can see what he is really made of, but so far, he's stepped up. Good size for a QB, 6-1 232 pounds. And is not afraid to run. Reminds me of Michael Vick, the way he plays.

And he is accurate with his passes.....so he is kinda like Vick only way better.

I was going to mention that I see a Mike Vick look about him when he runs with the ball, but I see I'm not the only one that thinks that too. And you are right he can throw too.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.

      I'm thinking the opposite could be happening. Some people are doing fairly good and they are not saying anything. Last year a person I know did real good over 1 mile from anyone and called one friend with the coordinates of where to meet him in 2 days. He got back in 2 days and found over 30 wheelhouses right on his coordinates. His one friend that he told had then told another friend who told another friend and on and on. The key to ice fishing URL has always been to stay away from the crowds but now a good report brings in a crowd. Some of the business have decided that fewer fishermen having good fishing could be a better long term plan then many fishermen having poor fishing so they are not reporting good fishing.   Me, I think the fishing this winter is far better then last winter. Most of the people fishing URL now learned to fish URL by going deeper and deeper for the crappies. Before the crappie boom very few fishermen went deeper then 10 feet of water for walleyes. If we got into crappies or perch we knew we were too deep for the best walleye fishing. Most of my fishing this year has been in 8 feet of water or less. But also I'm standing outside and not sitting in a house. On URL you will usually get 4 or 5 times more fish standing outside or in a portable then you will in a house. I think it is from the noise or vibrations. shaky and Doc could set their house in 6 feet of water and do very good but they fished very quietly.  When fishing they had no radio or TV turned on, no generator, stepped softly and talk in whispers,,,,and they caught a lot of fish. I've sat with a camera and watched walleyes spook away when the heating stove ignited, when I dropped a rod on the floor and when I slid a chair across the floor. That is why all of our rental houses had a rubberized floor, to dampen the noise. Every year more and more people are fishing in houses rather then standing outside or in portables and I wonder if that isn't going to change how many fish are caught for each hour of "fishing pressure"/angler hours.  Sure it is nice to sit in a warm house watching TV while fishing but at least on URL I think you will also catch less fish. It will interesting to see if the DNR creel census starts to show a lower catch per hour as the percentage of people fishing from wheelhouses increases.
