      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.

What was the deal with the Vikings yesterday?

Down to Earth

Didn't get a chance to watch or even listen to much the game yesterday as I was supporting my wife in the Twin Cities Marathon. After the were able to win on the road in Washington, I thought the Vikes would have won yesterday. Offense? Defense? Coaching?

I'll probably get lambasted for this..but I thought Brad Johnson played horrible yesterday. The O line for as much as they are making should be able to open up slightly larger holes for the backs to run through. The Defence I thought did fine.. it was on Brad in my opinion.. to many throws to the other team, and too many into line mens hands.

Yes he wasn't sharp. He can't throw a long ball and then when he does get one close at the end Robinson can't make the catch. Also Childress' play calling on that last drive was HORRIBLE as was Brad's decision to pass into the middle of the field with time running out and no time outs. They never took one shot to the endzone on the last drive from the what 35-40 yard line???

Just not a good offense on this team. The line isn't getting it done at all as Dietz said...NO running game to support the pass and no passing to support the run. BAD combination.

I think Brad has played better games, but he laid out some pretty nice passes to receivers who can't catch the ball. Williamson was worthless yesterday, he couldn't catch the ball if his life depended on it. And Robinson missed a possible game-winning catch that was practically set in his hands on the last drive of the game. Both of Brads interceptions were just dumb luck. The 2nd interception he threw was a darn nice play by the Bills defense... there's not many receivers in the league that can even make a catch like that smile.gif

A lot of it had to do with our play calling in my opinion. 3rd and 14 and we run the ball... 3rd and 11 and we run the ball... I don't get it.

I give the Vikes defense a pat on the back, as they played well. Our defense is the only stabilizer for us right now, our offense doesn't seem to be performing...

I was thinking we should trade for London Fletcher in the offseason. He could work with our receivers and teach them how to catch a ball, since it's becoming quite obvious that none of our current receivers can.

You would think that the ability to catch the football would be a requirement for a first-round draft pick making $13.3 million in guaranteed money over 5 years, especially if that player happened to play wide receiver.

Ya cuz I'm like half their speed and pretty much suck at catching a football. However, I'd be willing to play for 3 mil a year.

Play calling was brutal again. Recievers stink it up again and the "O" line really stinks. This team could easily be 4 and 0 right now. Oh well I am just too used to it. Gotta like the defense though.

This team should lite the lions up like a x-mas tree.

I HOPE!!!!!!!!

GOOOOOOOOOOOO VIKKKKKKKKKKKESSSS

I'm not a Brad hater, but I think it would interesting to see how Jackson could do with the first team. Don't get me wrong Johnson is a good qb, but all the things that Jackson could bring to the offense...Interesting!!! wink.gif

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.
