Already Looking Forward

7 posts in this topic

Obviously there isn't a whole lot of choices for the Vikes this year at QB, but looking forward to the draft and next year....what do the Vikes draft picks look like for the first round? Is there any way the Vikes could put themselves in a position to get a QB in the draft? And, is there a QB you guys think would be worth getting out of the draft (Smith, Quinn, Henne)???

I haven't thrown in the towel just yet on this season, but I also believe it's obvious the Vikes should be planning for the future for the QB position.

Thoughts?

isn't that why the Vikes drafted Jackson, the QB of the future??

Yes, and the coaching staff has him right where he should be, riding the pine with a clipboard in his hand. Watch and learn kiddo is what they are telling him

Next year should be a different story but don't ruin the kid by putting him in a situition tailor made for failure.

Jackson has been hurt as well, he couldn't have played if they wanted him to. I know he missed atleast a month after needing some minor surgery. There is no way he would be ready this year after missing that much practice time.

Don't forget about Matt Schaub being a free agent... with Vick playing great FB this season chances of the Fancons paying a backup alot of dough go out the window...

My bet is the Vikes will make a strong push for Schaub this off-season and have Jackson inked in as the back-up. #3 QB could be anyone and even someone they pick up later in the draft. Vikes have a good team right now and are in desperate need of a good playmaker at both QB and receiver. If they can fill these holes somehow it might get interesting.

Jackson seemed to have a decent pre-season. What's wrong with him right now? Is he the QB of the future for the Vikes?

      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.

      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.

      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?
