Windy City Walleye Hunter

I saw a game that was OK I guess. Da Bears squeeked out another win. Seahawks were pretty tough, I though the Bears were in trouble.....UNTIL THE GAME STARTED! DA BEARS.

I won a free lunch betting on that game!! Who said betting ruins families? I say it feeds them! Too bad the Vikes outplayed them and gave the game away vs the Bears the week earlier.... just sad

OK, obviously by my avatar and username you know I'm a cheesehead. So you can also guess that I am a big Favre fan and I would argue that he's still got it. I find all of the jokes about Madden's love affair with him amusing but have always been the first to say that its not Favre's doing. In fact if I was Brett, I would call Madden and tell him to keep my name out of his mouth because it just gets embarrassing after awhile. OK, so having said all of this, I have got to admit that Madden was just out of control with the Rex "Brett Favre" Grossman references last night. OMG, I counted at least five times, and I'm sure I missed a few. Even Collinsworth jumped on the bandwagon! Maybe one comparison would be OK...but over and over just gets sickening. And it happens during a game that doesn't even feature the Packers. Madden, please "relieve yourself" with a copy of the Packers media guide or something before going on camera next time. blush.gif My goodness!

Oh yeah, and kudos to the Bears. I am finding it hard to deny that they might actually be for real this year! I know the Bears-Packers rivalry is huge and all, but I would still rather have the Bears go than those bloody Vikings!

I missed it, was driving home from watching the twins win the division.

I was shocked when I saw the score. That is impressive, especially against seattle.

Better cross your fingers and hope they dont fade to black like the white sox did.

Green and Gold, that was a refreshing post... the part about Madden needing to just shut up! I heard that and starting laughing! He sounded like a drunk fool with that horrid babbling! He said... "you see how Rex rolled right looking for the short pass and when it wasn't thee looked deep and heaved it downfield, just like Brett Favre does"!!! OH MY GAHD is what went through my mind and he continues to lose credibility with me....

P.S. Favre can't play one good game and be considered back right? I still think any team that gets a rush on him will force him into Favre, err, I mean dumb mistakes.

Green and Gold thank you for the above post. As a life long fan of Da Bears and football in general I have been beatin to death with the Madden comments for far too long during Bears/Packers meetings and Monday nightgames in general for far too long.

Just beacuse Rex is throwing off his back foot and jumping around after releasing a pass does not mean he looks like or is immitating Favre.

When he started that crap last night I looked at my wife and shook my head, she just smiled at me, no words needed.

I was waiting for the comparisons of Brett and Rex with the other standards:

"Brett is like a big kid out there..."

"Brett just has fun..."

"Brett was just trying too hard, his competitive spirit got in the way..."

I've always wondered if John Madden tries to talk to Bret Favre while standing at the urinal. Which, we all know, is against the man code.

I think Madden probably tries to do a lot more than just talk to Favre while standing at the urinal. shocked.gif

I noticed his Favre comments too last night and thought what in the heck is he doing talking about Favre?

Overall he has been an entertaining guy to listen to in his earlier days, but dementia is a cunning and baffling foe. Hope that's not the reason. I guess he won't be doing tonight's game, so maybe he had to get it outta his system???????????

Yes Windy, that was nothing short of a beat down. I have never seen Hasselback look so frustrated. The Bears schedule is fairly light. They should have an excellent record.

I do see one similarity with Farve. Grossman sees an open reciever where only he and Farve would. If the Bears are to be upset, it will because Rexxy runs out of luck and has a three pick game. All that said, Grossman looks very poised out there. If he stays healthy the NFC Championship game is in their future.

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald
