He is eligible for re-instatement in October. he was a heck of a running back with great hands out of the backfield but had problems with drugs and has claimed to clean his act up. He is currently signed with a CFL team but wants back in the NFL. I bet when he comes back for whoever signs him he'll be a hell of a back.

I never really liked him. I can't remember him ever being tackled he would just run into the back of an offensive lineman and go down that way. Smith would never wait for holes to open up, he just ran blindly and hoped for a hole to be in front of him but if it wasn't there he would just run into the blocker and fall over.

Any other team can have him, I don't want him. Last I heard he was really over weight as well, I wonder if he lost any of it yet?

Are you for real?? I think you're thinking of Bennett. He was the guy that would run into the lineman and fall over. Smith had some moves on him at least. You're right he'd never fit the Childres, good guy's only....

I'll tell you what, if he hasn't cleaned up his act he won't be back in the league with the hammer that the new commish has put down this year.

I think he was an ok back at best. Nothing like what you are going to see this year with Chester Taylor and Adrian Peterson...I can't wait!!

you're right I love our backfield now but I always wondered what happened to that (Contact Us Please). Hope he does well somewhere.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
