Wild VS Ducks

Recommended Posts

Tonights the night, puck should drop any minute here, this has grown to be one of the very best rivalries in the entire NHL, and by far the Wilds best rivalry. Used to be Blackhawks VS North Stars was the game to watch, but I would take Wild VS Ducks now anyday. GO DEREK BOOOOOOOOOGAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRD

Boogaard vs May was a great show of Mays good defensive skills. Grade F

Boogaard plowing into Giguere was cheep, But that was solved as he got his clock cleaned by Parros. F for hitting a hall of fame goalie who just came off IR, and an F for getting knocked the f out in the fight afterwords.

Shultz vs. Getzlaf All I will say is you are lucky Getzlafs arm was caught in his sweater Mr Shultz. Grade C-.

Kind of funny to see Foster keep his gloves on when Niedermayer elbowed him in the head after he got back up from the first elbow. HMMM, cross check him or let Rob pounding his face in, he made a wize choice. This one gets a D- just because it was a good cross.

Actual hockey play was outstanding, Expecially the goaltending. Can they go 10-0-0?

whats your problem with boogard?? He did what the wild needed him to do, set the tone for the game that the wild were going to take any crap!

May was too scared to throw punches, and Boogard lost his footing twice with Parros. and the collision with guigure was incidental!!

Hey cw642 did you get confused and think you were on the fishingAnaheim site or something? I agree I give your grading system an F also. Boogaard will be back to form soon(not soon enough for me tho!)

I would have to agree about the Top 5 rivalry. It will probably only last a year though. Remember when the Wild and Canucks went at it in the playoffs and how everyone hated the Canucks. That seemed to only last about a year. Next year the wild will probably have a new one.

walleyes12, why put down Mays for dropping his gloves against Boogaard, when Foster wouldn't against Niedermayer. I suppose Foster was looking for Boogaard to bail him out when Rob was knocking him in the head with his elbow. Niedermayer vs. Boogaard might be a good one the next time they meet. I am a die hard wild fan, but I love the game more than any team. I guess I was just hoping for a few good fights. By the way Boogaard is a pro skater, and any mite hockey player could have missed running into Giguere.

Big Bad Brad may is a hero for dropping his gloves with boogard?? If you remember right big bad Brad May sucker punched Kim Johnson in the back of the head during the playoffs. You don't think we were going to go after him during the game. Come out and say you are a ducks fan. Everything your saying is sticking up for the ducks

BTW- I have another grade for everyone. The Wild is 5-0 and the last undefeated team in the NHL, went into the defending Stanley Cup Champions house and shut them out. Grade- A+

Pro skater? He's not even close to a Bantam skater. What have you been watching? For what he is out there for... he doesn't need to know how to skate.

      they have been great!  Provide more stability and floatation to the rear of the boat where it was needed with my 230lb frame with the motor back there.  They also make the boat look pretty "mean" for a small little jon boat   The only downside to them is now I have to figure out a trolling motor since I cant put one off the rear, and I have to get creative to mount a transducer.  Currenly i just suction cup a vexilar transducer to the side of the boat. I am planning on adding a motorguide kayak 36" shaft trolling motor to the bow.  I just need some welding on the front, but I have to customize it so the boat still can fit on my trailer properly, as I have bumpers that create a little logistical snafu.

      Looks like you got it set up pretty nice with comfy seats. How did the rear floats you added work?

      Just thought I would provide an update....the river is high and fast.  I have been down there multiple times during the course of the year and the fishing has been poor with water moving so fast.  I have tried 3oz weights and they tumble like nothing down the river.  Have not attempted to launch the boat out there.  I have been on the Rum a bit with the boat and that is a fun navigational voyage!  Not a lot of fish caught but some.  Regarding my boat set up, I did upgrade the 4hp up to a 6hp.  has just enough power to go where I need with a passenger.  next step is to weld up something to mount a bow mount trolling motor and I will have a solid fishing machine for small lakes and rivers. Hope everyone is out there enjoying our summertime open water!!

      Someone is always catching them somewhere but so far this week that someone is not me. Still a few ideas to try but running out quickly

      On the south end...   Summer fishing is prime time right now up at Lake of the Woods.  Good numbers of walleyes being caught.  A nice variety of sizes, which bodes well for the fishery.  Small fish, eaters, slot fish which must be released (19.5 - 28.0 inches) and trophy walleyes over 28 inches all in the mix.     The mud is holding big numbers of fish and two main fishing techniques are being used to get it done. The first technique is drifting or trolling crawler harnesses.  Using a two ounce bottom bouncer and a two snelled spinner will do the trick.  Best spinner colors have been gold, gold/pink, orange/chartreuse.     Making sure your weight is near the bottom, but not dragging the bottom is key.  Try to maintain a 45 degree angle and make sure the spinner is spinning, normally 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Walleyes will load up, almost feeling like you are dragging a wet sock.  A good feeling!   The second technique catching good numbers of walleyes is trolling crankbaits over the mud basin.  To get crankbaits down to schools of fish normally in that 28 - 32' range, lead core line, snap weights, downriggers and even a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with 6' mono or fluorocarbon leader with shallow diving crankbait will work well.   Most popular depths on the mud are 30'-36' of water over the mud basin.  Not every walleye in the lake is focusing on the same forage base.  There has also been success in that 12-20' range over sand and even shallower along shore.     Reefs can be their own ecosystem and can always hold fish.  Fish can be on top, sides, on the rock to mud transition or even adjacent to reef out in the mud.  Go fishing, watch electronics. On the Rainy River...  With drier weather, the flow of water is decreasing on the Rainy River.  Water clarity has improved and so has fishing.     Most are targeting the edges of the main current where water is slower moving.  Points, bridges, underwater structure, docks and bends in the river can all change current flow, creating good spots for fish to live. Jigs, spinners and crankbaits are all catching fish.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River with literally thousands of fun spots to fish. The sturgeon season is open.  Some nice fish were caught this week.  Anchor up on a hole or adjacent to a hole in the river and soak some nightcrawlers.  Local tackle shops have flat no roll sinkers and sturgeon rigs.     There is a big population of smallmouth bass in the Rainy River.  Although they don't receive much attention due to walleyes, they are abundant. Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing is the rule of thumb using three techniques, jigging, trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits.     Reports of walleyes sliding deeper off of structure.  If fishing a "spot on a spot", jigging is the preferred method.  If fish are spread out or you are searching a flat, spinners and crankbaits will cover more water and walleyes are normally cooperative.   Some big pike caught again this week.  These predators are often hanging around schools of walleyes and saugers, but rocky points, bays and sunken islands are great spots as well. Muskie anglers continue reporting good success fishing a variety of structure amongst the islands.

      CFD200, Nice Fish!  are you on the east or west side of Vermilion?
    • monstermoose78
      Just have been busy and I will work ok a report tonight. 
    • CFD200
      We had difficulty finding any walleyes this weekend.  The previous two weekends I marked a lot of fish with few takers.  Didn't  mark many this weekend but, caught this 24" mark.
