Spaeth is really the only "big" name Gopher pick this year. As far as where he'll be drafted, the word is that he's in the same situation as Eslinger last year, where there's still a lot of question marks. Maybe between rounds 2-5.

Ya that was the first guy that came to mind for me too, but there should be a lineman there or somebody that can play at the next level too you'd think...not that I could name one.

Spaeth was an All-American last year, just like Eslinger. Eslinger didn't get drafted right away and I believe was the third Center taken in the draft. Spaeth's big question mark is his shoulder injury.

Joe Ainslie (OT) worked out in Wisconsin during their Pro Day. The reason he went to Wisconsin is because of all the attention surrounding Joe Thomas (OT) is projected to go #2 of the draft. The only thing that I heard about his pro day workout is that he was "top dog" in the bench (reps). I could see him being asked to camp by someone, but I don't know if he'll actually get drafted.

Well Lawdog, Spaeth went in the 3rd round, 77th overall pick. Gary Russell was not drafted but signed a free agent contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Logan Payne also signed as a free agent contract with the Seattle Seahawks. Russell had a terrible workout and ran very s-l-o-w right before the draft. I wish him luck, although he may follow the steps of Clarett and be out of football sooner than he wishes.

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
