Good to see you here, Chad. Also nice to see what your career will be. Responsible law enforcement officers who are dedicated to protecting the resources and use good judgment are always needed. It was a career I considered carefully myself, but was too selfish in the end. COs spend WAY more time pursuing the violators of game and fish laws than enjoying the pursuit of game and fish.

Welcome. grin.gif

Are you also a VCC football jock?

Oh come on Steve, cool.gif

Other than the Junior College players being bigger, faster, stronger, far greater skills, and meaner, it's exactly like high school football! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

you are definately correct. i thought it was going to be a lot like high school too or hoped it would be. much stiffer competetion and bigger faster players who love to play. definately a step up from high school.

I guess you all took me pretty literal. Until I reread the comment asking if he played football, i took it as someone boasting that they were a junior college football player, and i thought it was funny, just because its a junior college. So i made the comment about high school football only because its not like division 1,2,or 3 college football. What I am familiar with and who I know has made junior college collegiate programs were just above average high school players. Sorry for the whole comparison scenario. I am sure you are a talented football player. Far better than me, Im just a basketball player, ha ha, can't take a hit. So anyways, all done with the sports blogs, and onto the topic at hand.

There are a lot of guys playing CC sports that could play D1,2 and 3 football. Most of them didnt have the grades to get a better scholarship.

Mn. doesnt have CC scholarships but in many states they do. I have played against a lot of guys with the abilty to play D-1 or D-2 but didnt prioritize the schoolwork.

In Mn. CC sports arent as good as in other states but still better athletes than high schools.

I played at Fergus Falls CC (B-Ball) way back in 85 for a year then went to UMD and UWS. I had guys at FF that would have easily made the starting line up for any team in either league. The WIAC is tuff. Enough said.

Hey whens the WALLEYE opener anyways? Posts like this wont be seen come opener.

there are quite a few guys who are going to play at a higher level next year that i played with this year. Most of the guys came to vermilion to play football. me and very few others played just because we could. my original intent in going here was for my degree and sports second. a lot of these guys were inner city boys who never had lived in a small town in the middle of the wilderness. these are guys that have never seen frogs and snakes before and were freaking out about them the first weeks of practice. Also didnt understand how cold it got here and never experienced walking on a frozen lake before.

walleye opener is in just a little over 6 weeks. too bad school is done 3 days before that and have to go home to southern minnesota before

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
