      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.

David Carr, QB HOU

News: According to numerous sources, the Texans have released QB David Carr. He was expendable after the club traded for Falcons QB Matt Schaub. In five seasons, Carr threw for 13,391 yards, 59 touchdowns and 65 interceptions, and was sacked 249 times.

Analysis: Carr is expected to land on his feet somewhere, likely in a spot that will afford him the chance to at least compete for a starting job. He does have some great ability and was limited thanks in part to an awful O-line in Houston and a lack of a running game to complement his passing game. Expect him to be at least a No. 3 Fantasy QB in 2007.

I would like to see it. Can't hurt. at least he has some experience. If T-Jack needs a few years Carr could fill in for a year or two and maybe if he surprises longer. Not that our O-line is great, but Houston's was/is horrible.

Of course I also want the Vikes to get Drew Brees last year. But they didn't even make an attempt. I guess we didn't need HIM. Just goes to show how inept the front office in Eden Prarie is.

At this point i'd like too see it also. But i dont see any reason the vikings will sign him. There have been numerous people this offseason that could have helped this team and they havent brought a single one of them in yet.

Anyone else heard the rumor that the vikings might trade totally out of the first round of this draft too stockpile picks?? Getting rid of the #7 pick and getting totally out of the first round, that would fit right in with this offseason.

Listening too the radio this morning and a national NFL program said the vikings announced publically that they have zero interest in Carr. Kind of like they seem too have zero interest in putting a decent product on the field in 07.

Down to Earth

Childress was on PA & Dubay, I believe it was Friday and as you said I don't think the Vikes will be bring in Carr. I don't think Childress is all that high on him as a QB.

I read somewhere that the big chill did not like carr's mechanics in his throwing style. I have always liked Carr and as a die-hard viking fan, I wish we could have landed him. But I truly believe if Chilli's offense works at all T-Jack WILL be a pro-bowler in a couple years.

And I'm not too high on Childress as a coach and talent evaluator.

Dude, give me some of what you're smokin'!!! Don't get me wrong, I'm still a fan and will root for the Vikes. But at this point they are going to have to surprise me to put together a winning season.

BTW, what a bunch of bull about throwing mechanics etc. Rich Gannon won an MVP throwing the football side-arm. I am so sick of the NFL and thier combine results. Ohhh, this guy's arms are .5 inches longer, that guy can run 120 ft in .1 seconds faster without pads on (he can't run an actual route or catch a ball but...). How about evaluating actual talent. It used to be said that 90% of sports is from the neck up.

I just think Chilli is a little overconfident in his coaching abilities at this point.

Hey Franny towner, I do have high hopes but I definately have a lot of confidence in the talent of T-Jack. I wasnt knocking Carr, I liked him. I think he could also be really good.

I like T-Jack as well. I think he'll be able to extend some drives for the Vikes with his legs much like Daunte did when he was younger. Hopefully, if he's able to do this we will get a look at what this offense is supposed to be. 3rd and 5 this year will put opposing defenses in a whole different look this year as opposed to last. Johnson was absolutely zero threat to pull it down and take off. This year they will have to honor this threat and it should be fun to watch.

Don't forget that Chili has is all figured out. I think sometime is 2020 we will be set up to make a run!!! As far as I am concerned they are doing a poor job of selling me on a stadium. I don't think it should be based on if they are winning because sports are cyclical(especially with salary caps), but it seems they aren't even trying.

In my opinion, our O-Line is overrated, we need at least one corner, our LB's are average at best, who are our WR's??, oh that's right we have Dropsies Williamson(but he runs a 4.3) and can't forget Bobby Wade!! We could use a veteran QB if not to play, to help mentor TJack. I could keep going...but the Vikes aren't worth it.

One more thing...did anyone find it funny that Philadelphia was putting up record numbers last year before McNabb got hurt?? Maybe Chili wasn't as big a part of that as we thought!!

He signed with Carolina so as a backup. Further proof that the Vikings will be as good as a Euro-team this fall.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,
