I'll second Roseau-Warroad. Neighboring towns, both of them being hockey powerhouses, and both of them having lots of history in the state tournament. It doesn't get any better than that.

By far Roseau-Warroad.

I went to high school in Elk River and Elk River-Moorhead was pretty big.

Biff - did you see that Elk River- Moorehead section finals game that went 4 OT? I was at that game, probably the best hockey game I've ever seen, high school, college, pro anything. I think the Elk River goalie had over 60 saves. What year was that? 95, 96?

I'll agree the northern rivalries are the best, but how 'bout in town?

Hill Murray and White Bear Lake always seemed to meet in the section final, and it always seemed to go into OT.

Never a dull game, and even reg season games were fun as Aldrich was always packed.

One of the best that I can think of was the Hibbing vs. Grand Rapids games back in the early 80's. Any of the section 7 games were all cross town battles.

The Duluth Cathedral teams of the late 60's against the world.. They played as an independent against anyone in the state then went on to win I think it was 4 catholic state championships. They would play Duluth East and fill the Arena over 5000 people. Unheard of for high school hockey then.

edina and tonka

jefferson and burnsville

those were two powerhouse rivalries in the late 80's early 90's. Growing up in the metro, the jaguars were the dream team to beat.

I was at that game. I didn't go to many games in high school because I played basketball but that game was at St. Cloud State and there was no room to stand or sit. I can't remember what year that was. Maybe 1994 because I was in 9th grade when it happened. Great game.

Greenway-Grand Rapids Two schools whose students are neighbors and rivals, the kids often knew the guys on the other bench at least by reputation. Big School Small School, Rich hockey tradition dating back decades for both, Plus it is on Da Range.

I would agree with all the "Roseau-Warroad" chat but being that I played for Grand Rapids, I'm going to have to go with Greenway and Grand Rapids. However, the rivalry isn't near as storied as it once was.

Only thing is greenway hasnt really been able to compete with grand rapids the last couple years. Speaking of Cec duluth east that game is coming up next thursday. East got beat by white bear in overtime yesterday and Cec beat white bear 3-0 today so that will be a good game. Being from cloquet im gonna have to go with cec. grin.gif

Hey Biff, you know who I am. That was a great game! Do you remember the mascot fight before the game? Remember who that was? LOL smile.gif (not me, but it was a friend of ours)

I'll go with Roseau v. Warroad and Grand Rapids v. Greenway. The Falls, entering their 60th year of high school hockey, played Hibbing recently for the 121st time. The record stands 67-50-4 in favor of the Falls.

I was at the ER-Moorhead game, too. Matt Cullen, now in Charlotte, was a big gun for Moorhead. He had a couple good seasons for St. Cloud State. That night, the Gophers were in town to play SCSU and I was thinking that game would be delayed.

I didnt know the Falls hadany rivalries. They were a dynasty for a time so I guess they would get some one to match up against.

Another vote for Roseau v. Warroad.

My dad played for Roseau in the mid 50's, so we make it a family tradition to watch these two teams go at it.

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On! 
    • monstermoose78
      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day.

      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick

      What a difference a day makes, yesterday the dam was locked up tight and today it's roaring. Walleye should be running this week...
    • IceHawk
      Well this morning was officially the end of the ice season for me.   Its been a lot of days on the ice this winter and I have to admit I'm  a little burnt out.   It wasn't easy but it was time to end it.  Have to admit It was a sad moment putting the gear away but it was time as needed space today to put the boat in the garage   Learned a lot of new water and reacquainted myself with some old standbys. Fished 10 different counties this winter so definitely fished a lot of different areas.  Fished many species on the ice this winter so there never was a dull moment. Didn't take a ton of pics just a few need to take more just have never been a pic type of guy LOL.   Iced 7 walleyes between 26-28 3/4 all on local lakes.  So just a tip if you dedicate some time locally big eyes can be found. Fished panfish everywhere in the state highlight area for big fish being Becker and Ottertail Douglas counties. Biggest gill this winter was 10 3/4    many 10's came topside but couldn't break 11 this winter. Craps 15 inchers were tops. Good fish but had goals set at a 16.  Some things learned this ice season where number one lure for the eyes was a old school hammered silver Swedish pimple. It far out produced anything else.   Kenders tungsten where my mainstay for gills and crappies. The plastics of choice were power bait wishbones,  chigger frys, and Northland impulse mayfly's.  The catfish were a hoot and a  change of pace did well on Maynards slammers Glow red. The equipment and gear I was running and never failed me all season were Thorne Bros Rods- For eyes Perch sweethearts. For the Panfish I was running  Power Noodles, panfish sweethearts,  and my favorite the Tripwire. Reels Pflueger Presidents, Prestige ,and Supremes.. Did use some inlines also from 13 fishing The free falls where worth every penny. Ran a K-Drill 8 inch early and late and During the thick ice Ran my strikemaste Lazer.  Vexilar Electronics the old trusty FL18 my eyes underwater, Please Don't  think that I'm pushing these products because I'm sponsored by them, I'm Not. Just want to give a thumbs up and honest opinion on  some top notch equipment that has worked and weathered the storm of a good hardwater season. Realize we all work hard for our dollars and I can honestly say these products where worth every penny and never let me down!  Well Off to the Garage to start getting the boat ready for the Next season  By the Way big Shout out to some of the best Anglers I had the chance to share the ice with this season from FM.  Thanks  Borch,  Bass Thumb,  Moose,  Eyeguy, Rick G , Tom Sawyer for shareing some ice time with me.  Hopefully I get to meet and fish with a few other FMer's this summer or next hardwater.  We had some great Times great laughs and managed to even ice a few fish   Looking forward to having a few summer outings in the future.  BYE BYE Ice Hello open water

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/
