I don’t buy into those preseason polls at all. How can Minnesota be ranked 3rd when they are starting 9 freshmen? Sure they’re supposed to be good freshmen, but they’re still freshmen. I also don’t know how they can rank Wisconsin 1st when they lost their top six point producers from last year. Didn’t they lose their goalie as well? I can’t remember.

All I care about is that the Gophers are there in the end. If I had to pick a WCHA favorite right now I would be leaning toward St. Cloud State. They didn’t lose any top players and Motzko really had those guys clicking at the end of last season.

I just can’t wait for college hockey to start up again. The off-season is waaaaaaay to long in hockey! Go Gophers.

Elliot is still in Wisconsin. He was so good last year it was easy for me to pick them as the national champs when he was injured and the Goph's were on top of the world. Going to be a lot tougher though without those upper classmen skaters.

Gophers will be good again, even after losing Kessel, Irmen, and Potulny. They are getting the number one pick afterall; hometown guy too. Still the Gophers have Briggs, and I just don't see them winning deep into the playoffs with this guy.

I went to Duluth, so I'm going to carry the lone torch for the 'Dogs. We've got a lot of Sophmores now and some Juniors. Maybe at least compete for 4th or 5th. Picked up some tickets for UM vs UMD today, I'm psyched.

I agree that SCSU looked tough late last year. Then of course you still have UND and the 2 CO schools. It's no wonder the national championship ALWAYS comes from the WCHA now!

--Also I'm looking forward to some clumsy Woog-er deliveries. I love that guy!

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
