Huskies/Gophers

confused.gifWhat would you do for a ticket to either the Friday St Cloud home game or the Saturday Gopher home game? blush.gif Not sure about the Saturday game but the Friday game has been sold out for awhile now. tongue.gif And NO I don't have any available tickets! Best two teams in the country? Probably.

I would agree that these are probably the best two teams in ther country. Notre Dame being ranked # 1 is a complete joke. New hampshire can maybe be figured in the mix but that is about it.

Yeah, I personally have not seen Notre Dame play this year but I have a really high opinion of the WCHA. The best conference in college hockey, hands down, no comparison.

Notre Dame won't see the final four. I can garantee you that. Notre Dame will be hard pressed to beat Niagra or Bemidji State in the first round. They have a streghth of schedule that is worst than every team in the WCHA. How they are number 1 only sweet Mary knows.

The St. Cloud State Huskies are a great team. I keep repeating this and nobody from the Maroon and Gold will recognize this team as being every bit as good as the goofs. The goofers were nervous with the sioux coming to town......how about a team with a better goalie, faster defenseman, and more depth across their fowards?

I predict a Husky sweep this weekend on goaltending alone. This team is jacked to turn the corner and this weekend they will.

Mark it down.

Not so sure about a sweep but a home and home split wouldn't surprise me. SCS should have their legs goin after a one-point weekend against the Badgers last weekend. I was planning on going fishing this weekend so I may have to settle for the radio but we'll see how this storm plays out. It's going to be a great series nonetheless. I agree - Notre Dame isn't going anywhere. Go Huskies!

I think the gophernation has given pleanty of props to SCSU. They are a very solid team and have gone on a great run this year. I think it will be a great series. I am thinking split or 3 points for the good guys (gophs)

A sweep is entirely possible. I just don't think the Gophers will be on the "dust pan" end of it. smirk.gif

Sure to be a great series nonetheless.

Well I gotta say a Husky win would be sweet, however as a former on-ice official I have learned the importance of total impartiality.(Is that a word?) And as a goal judge that is of the utmost importance. We are not supposed to show any emotion what-so-ever, and seeing as I am being paid for my services I will adhere to the code of conduct. When I'm in the box behind the net, I have no interest in the outcome of the game. I must tell you that the only thing I worry about when I'm working a game is making sure the right call is made.

Since "the streak" was ended, it really has been a boom or bust proposition for the Gophers. They are either really on or really off and last night was obvious that they fall into the latter of the categories. Coming down the stretch, that is a problem but hopefully they can work through it and keep their heads above water. Again, youth and/or lack of experience is going to prove to be an issue.

I was at the game on Friday and it was great. I only called Hockey Guy once and he said the huskies simply outplayed the gophers. Hockeyguy is a gophers fan first, but he stills likes the huskies having graduated from SCSU.

It should be an interesting game tonight. The gophers will be looking for a win at all costs.

Nice job by Lucia for second year in row he has turned the best team in the country into a mediocre team down the stretch.

      We struggled on walleye on Frazer bay this saturday, so sunday morning I started throwing senkos.  Not quite consecutive casts like Wanderer, but i went all morning catching nothing, then caught these two cousins with 3 min of each other, smallie off the point, then the big mouth around the corner in a shallow bay.  18" smallie, 17" LMB. Good fun.    We did get about a dozen walleye on sunday night after the storms chased 15 boats away from the point we were fishing.  Mostly small, but a couple keepers.  Chartruese Jig and rainbows in about 10-12 FOW.  Couldn't buy a bite with a chub.

      I have good Jeremy how have you been doing. I need to get out fishing with you soon.
    • Walleye #1
      Stick in the Mud   I do think sometimes that those fish see so many jigs and shiners that something such as a crawler or leech is a great change up and will get bites.  Also with the bug hatches that are happening, those are two great baits.       Leech Lake   Leech Lake Walleyes once again found themselves spread out and in different areas and related to different pieces of Leech Lake structure.  Shiners and Leeches seemed to be the bait of choice for those Leech Lake Walleyes, but plastics are still catching some fish.  Be sure to stop in at Full Stringer Bait and Tackle, Swansons Bait and Tackle, Tutts Bait and Tackle, or Sportland Bait and Tackle for all your bait and tackle needs.     West End The LOA Fishing Guides found much of their success on the West End of Leech Lake.  Focusing in on the flats around West Goose in depths of 7-10ft of water, as well as the wind blown points such as Duck, Big Hardwoods, Ottertail, Pine, and Bowmans.  Sucker Bay also proved to have a good wind driven bite throughout the weekend.   A Jig and Minnow was the best presentation by far, but in most instances instead of jigging it, dragging or swimming it along the bottom seemed to work best, but when the front came in on Sunday the Leech Lake Walleyes were snapping and aggressively jigging was provoking the bite.  When things slowed down, slowing down with a lindy rig and leech put fish in the boat as well.  Green cabbage once again was a key to finding active walleyes and jumbo perch in 5-8ft of water.  Pitching an 1/8th oz KenKatch jig with a shiner caught Leech Lake Jumbos, Walleyes, and pike.  Slip bobbers and leeches/shiners also have put fish in the boat being either fished in the weeds or windblown points.   East End/Main Lake On the Main Lake, the rocks still were producing a great bite as well as some of the East End points such as Battle, Sugar, and Five Mile when the strong Westerly winds were blowing.  Annex, Submarine, Pelican, and North Bar were all producing fish in 10-14ft of water. Lindy Rigs with leeches or shiners seemed to work best, but the biggest fish still seem to want a 1/8th or 1/4oz jig and shiner.  
      Leech Lake Crappie and Bluegill fishing still remains strong.  When the weather warms up for a couple days both species are moving onto their beds and are actively feeding.  Looking to Boy Bay, Millers Bay, Shingobee, and Steamboat for the best action in 3-6 feet of water.  Just remember to use selective harvest as these fish are more vulnerable.

      Memorial Weekend,      Hit Waconia Saturday morning for bass. Caught about 40 largemouth--most from 14 to 17 inches, with a few 17 and 18 inchers--and several nice pike. Fish were in cabbage out from bedding areas, in about 6 to 9 feet of water. Fish were scattered, lying in the weeds looking up for sunfish that are staging in these areas preparing to move in and bed. With this situation, we buzzed spinnerbaits and weedless spoons over and through the tops of the weeds, and the bass aggressively came up on them, as well as some pike. Had one lazy muskie follow as well. Got good footage for a bass segment of Fishing and Hunting the North Country on You Tube. Added footage of a couple smallies from out in the Hutch area Saturday evening. The bass fishing will continue to get better as the water warms, with more big ones, and the sunfish bedding bite is probably only a week or less away. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Memorial Weekend,      Out on Washington Saturday afternoon and evening after hitting Waconia for bass Saturday morning. Caught largemouth, smallmouth, and pike. Added footage of a couple smallies to the largemouth and pike footage from Waconia for a bass segment of Fishing and Hunting the North Country on You Tube. Caught the bass and pike on Washington in four to seven feet of water, out from bedding areas, on spinnerbaits, Rippin' Raps, and Shadow Raps. Up on Mille Lacs this coming weekend for a walleye tournament, then will be back out in the Hutch area the next weekend guiding. We were targeting bass this weekend, but got a tip that walleyes are biting on a couple Hutch area lakes on live bait. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Geez Terry! Now you will be telling me that walleyes are only good muskie bait! Cliff

      Nice report Cret Musta been a thrill getting that 9.75 Gill.  
    • JeremyCampbell
      Wow dude lol Sup Moose how you been?
    • guideman
      Vermilion has excellent fishing for both bass species   The east end has the best Smallmouth action and the west end has the best Largemouth action, however you can catch either on both sides of the lake.  For Smallmouth, rocks, docks, points, saddles, reeds, wood and the shoreline rubble are all very productive. Most of the green bass are found in or near the slop and the west end has the best of what they like the most. Spinnerbaits, any color as long as it's white, stick baits, cranks, topwaters, jigs, swim baits and soft plastics all work for Smallies. Jigs, topwaters(Frogs) plastics and a host of other stuff will catch the green bass. Have a great time, the midweek traffic is very minimal.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bla bla bla, all this Walleye talk is boring me to death.   The real opening day is this Saturday when the Muskie opener comes to Minnesota and the Big V.  I'll be out fishing with my son and grandson searching for some real fish.   The weather looks great, my baits are all sharpened and the new line is on all my rigs. Bucktails, Glittertails, spinnerbaits and minnow style cranks will make up most of our arsenal, however we will also be tossing a few topwaters looking for those Big green girls and not even talking about Walleye fishing.   Have a great weekend everybody!   "Ace" "It's just fishing man"
