Phhew!!!!!!!! That was close. Nice to see the Gophers grind out a solid 4-3 finish against Airforce. Any other comments on how the game went?

I only got to see the last of the game. 3 to 1 I think when I turned it on.

After the way they played last weekend. I thought they would get it going a little faster then they did.

But none the less a wim is a win.

they need to pick things up if they don't want to be playing golf on Monday. was a pretty poor performance this afternoon, unacceptable this time of year. They would be on a flight back to minneapolis tonight if it was any other team out there this afternoon.

Briggs was terrible, the enthusiasm was suspect, they played down to another team's level, the officiating was mediocre and they still came away with the win. The end result was what we wanted but you're right, that won't work today.

Is it 5:00 pm? grin.gif

Yeah, that was ugly. They better kick it up a few notches today.

Let's go Sioux! What an awesome game they played yesterday; I thought it was all over after the first 2 minutes. shocked.gif I hope the WCHA cleans house at finals either way.

I agree Briggs let in a 2 soft ones but he really made some nice saves to keep us in it he reminds me of Lammy from North Dakota they seem to let in a few bad ones but they both makes some keys saves to keep their teams in the game.

Who is starting today? I would assume Frazee but Lucia when asked after the game wasn't real definitive in his answer.

I had to leave for a racing banquet yesterday when the score was 3-1. How did the Gophers coma back in the last 10 minutes?

Congrats to the Sioux on a hard fought win. Was a lot like last weeks game, just ended up the other way. What a fun couple of games to watch the last couple of weeks. Good luck to the Sioux in the frozen 4, hope they bring the title home to the WCHA again, I hate the east teams.

A bounce and/or a possession either way. Nonetheless, a great game. I'll definitely be pulling for the Sioux from here on out.

      Getting these big fish back in the water as soon as possible is important in summer heat.

      Thanks guys! JB-how do you get the Mepps down deep?

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup
