I hope not but I'm afraid it looks like they will.

Same here. They play the gritty, in your face hockey with all the little chippy stuff after the play. Unfortainately the Senators do not have the depth to duke it out with them. If the Sens would crash the net and get J S off his game they might have a chance. I just don't see it happening.

I hate it when southern teams win. I heard on kfan that there were more people watching the cup finals here in Minnesota than in LA. Now that's sad!!

I really hate to say it but I have to give a hand to the ducks for winning the cup. They played Tough defensive hockey all playoffs and were rewarded with the ultimate trophy. I hope as a fan of the Wild that I will be able to witness them raise the cup!!

The best team won the cup hands down. They were strong in every aspect of the game. It is probably true that more northern people watch the finals than people in the south. Go to Canada once. The NHL there is like the NFL here. On some nights when the Cup was on it was like the 4th or 5th story on ESPN. Sad.

Give me the NHL anyday over the NFL.

Don't get me wrong, I like football, but Hockey is better! grin.gif

It was fun watching them guys play, I hope the Wild will be there next year! grin.gif

It's not that I don't think the Ducks were not the better team.....they were. I just like it better when the fans appreciate it more.

I Love the WILD and I can't thing of anything worse than watching the Ducks esp. Brad May hoisting the cup and giving the cup a kiss . Call me a sore loser or whatever but this sucks.They are good but man that is one dirty f'in team and it makes me sick to know that they are stanley cup champs for a year!

Even if Cali can not appreciate the Cup MN can. Bemidji's own Joe Motzko had his day with the Cup yesterday. Big news here. Even though he only played two minutes in the Finals he got it and had the generosity to share it with people who can appreciate it.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
