      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.

Just read on the NFL sports network ticker Green just signed with the Houston Texans.Do the Pack have someone else to run the ball for them?

Good question? Can't believe they got rid of Green, Godo, and Davenport in the last year. That leaves Morency-sp I guess. Some people have the Pack taking a RB with there fisrt pick. Have to wait and see.

Technically Ran, the pack didn't get rid of Green, he was a UFA (Unstricted Free Agent) so he could talk to any team he wished to play for or whatever team was offereing him the best contract. I am suprised that the Packers didn't put the franchise tag on him to keep him in Green Bay. But then there could be conflict between the player and the organization just like in Chicago right now with LB Lance Briggs and the Bears organization. Sounds like Briggs is one pissed of guy right now with the Bears placing the franchise tag on him to keep him in Chicago, but he wants to play elsewhere it sounds, so he is asking for a trade.

bluegills, getting rid of him by not giving him a new contract- same thing. He's pretty worn down anyway. I think it was the right move.

If the Pack would have franchised him and didn't get a long term deal worked out he would have been guarenteed 6.99 million next year. WAY TOO MUCH for a 30 year old back who isn't what he used to be. Also, he was looking for a 4 year deal and the Packers didn't want to go that far out. We are very thin at RB right now, but I think we will take care of that in the draft, free agency, or maybe even a trade.

Yup, a great player who loved being a Packer, never complained, went about business quietly and got the job done. No doubt he will be in the Packer's HOF. That said, the organization probably made the right move, or non-move, as it were. It just wouldn't have been smart to re-sign him to a multi-year deal in the range of what he was looking for. He is getting up there, and this, combined with his repaired quad and asthma, prevented him from lining up for more than 2 snaps in a row.

Good luck Ahman, and I hope you prove the Packers wrong!

I can maybe see them signing Jamal Lewis if the price is cheap enough or maybe even Travis Henry which would be more of an ideal back for the Packers offense, can catch out of the backfield.

Henry has signed with Denver, so that option is no longer.

I guess when you fumble the ball alot, you don't complain about still getting carries.

One year it was his elbow pads. Then he changed them, fumbles stopped. Then it was his elbow pads the next year. He forgot I guess.

Then it was hayfever the next season. He took some Clariton and the ball stuck in his arms better because he wasn't wiping snot off his face.

Last season he didn't fumble because Brett Favre asked him not to. That guy's pretty influential. Maybe he should ask himself to not throw the ball on a rainbow and watch it get picked off.

Ok now, UJ....not a Favre fan are you?

This just in: Favre has asked that UJ not post any negative comments about him (and since he is so influential......)

Nyuk, nyuk.

No, actually, I like Favre. And his bullet passes (though I would NOT wanna be at the other end of one)

I am also happy he is coming back for another season. I actually like that he's not afraid to throw the ball up for grabs, makes for entertaining football.

      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.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!  
    • fowldreams
      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
