New Jersey and Vancouver in The Finals. You have to like your chances with Martin Brodeur between the pipes. Devils go home with the Cup.

I don't think the Wild will get out of the 1st Round.

In my opinion there is no better playoff to watch than hockey. In my opinion it would go: 1. Hockey 2. Baseball 3. Football 4. Basketball

Wow...what a finish to the Wings/Ducks game tonight. Playoff hockey sure is great to watch.

I'm pullin' for the Ducks...as they keep steamrolling over every team in front of them, the Wild don't look as bad...

It sure was a wild finish. I don't think it would have been so bad if the Ducks wouldn't have gone into a shell and tried to play protective hockey. Once they started giving Detroit the neutral zone and stacking up at the blue line, the Wings started hammering away. Not to mention their penalty kill in the 3rd period was absolutely terrible. It only took the Wings 8 seconds to score on one power play and the other couldn't have been much longer. Glad they pulled it out though. Don't know who I want to win the Cup, either way, i think there are going to be some really good games. That's what it is all about!! laugh.gif

Ottawa has not played a big, physical team yet.If the Ducks can shut down the Alfredson,Heatley,Spezza line the series will be over in a hurry. The Ducks have the Top 2 defenseman in the game in Pronger and Niedimeir(spelling). Anaheim in 5.

I'm going to cheer for Ottawa in this one. One of my sons played a couple of years of Squirt hockey with Tom Priessing in the Rosemount, MN. youth program in the late 80's. I'd love to see the Stanley Cup come to town for a day this summer.

I got to see it once when it came to Elk River when Dan Hinote won the cup playing for the Avalanche.

Anaheim doesn't deserve to win. I don't care that the Wild could've lost to the Cup champs...nobody is going to remember that except maybe us Wild fans. I probably won't even remember who won, I'll just remember Anaheim crying and whining about Boogie's "kneeing" incident and May's cheap shot on Johnnson. Not to mention what's his name being the third man in on a fight. Go Ottawa!

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps
