It would be fun to go back and review some of the predictions for the NFC North prior to the season. Nobody gave The Pack a chance and look at them now.....look at them now. grin.gif

Packers have had a nice run, they are shoring up the running game over this last month, and look like they should be playing in the NFC championship game. Rodgers will be a talent when Favre retires, and the whole team is still really young. That's the NFL...parody and a chance for all.

Should be fun to watch the Pack and Vikings (knock on wood) in the playoffs.

im a vikes fan, but no bull, i said at the beginning of the year i thought the pack would have a resurgence like this. i just didnt expect the vikes to be the wild card out of the north. im not complaining though. getting into the playoffs behind GB is better than not getting in at all. fingers crossed!!!

Isn't there anything else Queens fans can come up with then "The Pack Suck", I guess when they have an IQ of zero that's all they know what to say.

Never would of thought at the beginning of the year they would wim the NFC North, good for them, a young team that's only going to get better.

I have to say congrats to the packers, they came from nowhere, I dont think anyone expected them to be this good. I dont like favre, but he has been a big part of the packers winning this year. The worst part of it is the team is very young, so that may mean several years of the pack being competitive. frown.gif. I hope to see the Vikes beat the pack in the championship game this year, that would be nice!

At the beginning of the year, I predicted the Lions would win the division and the Pack second.

I predicted the Vikings and Bears would have less than .500 years and neither would have a chance at the playoffs.

I can see I was wrong about everything...except the Bears.....

Please make that Queens fan. There was only one response like that. Most of us Vikes fans may have a wish to see the Pack fall on their faces but most of will also begrudgingly acknowledge when the Pack have met or exceeded all expectations at they have this season.

The Pack are going very well. Farve is playing well and even when he throws up a ill advised ball his receivers are making the play to come down with the ball. Add a resurgent running game with a tough D and they will give anyone a run for the money in the NFC.

Now that said, the Pack still sucks. grin.gif

Atleast your response sounded more intelligent than the other guy. I do like your final words had a feeling that would be thrown in there.

Down to earth- MN has to get there 1st and I would love to see that match-up 1 more time.

GB has to get there first also. I think fans on both sides would like their chances with that match-up though.

Everybody play nice now! Nothing malignant, just some good old benign ribbing I hope.

And I thought that after both teams played this year the rivalry would be dead until next fall.....Depending on seeding, and depending on a Vikings win on the road, a Lambeau rematch in the playoffs could happen....Both teams need to continue their recent winning ways though....

by the way, does anyone know what you get when you put 30 Packers fans in a room at the same time?

The real question is....can the Vikes stand to see their hopes and Dreams CRUSHED by the Packers again...what do you want this time 40 - nil? (Throw in a safety for extra insult)

You do realize if they play the Pack for NFC Championship...it will be played OUTDOORS in Lambeau. No artificial crod noise played...no begging to sell out or blackout...Just cold weather, frozen tundra and another Packers VICTORY!

Sometimes it takes a selective memory to get someone through a day.

2002 season lost to Atl in Lambeau

2003 Beat Seattle in OT at Lambeau

2003 Lost to Philly in Lambeau

2004 Lost to Vikes in Lambeau

Oh boy...that kind of record sends chills down my spine.

The Vikes should thank the packers, for the last loss they handed to them. The Vikings just needed a good butt whoopin, (like a juvinile kid) to straighten them out. Since then, the Vikings have been one of the best teams in football. If these two teams are fortune enough to meet again this year, it would be the championship game. I would love to see a rematch, now that the Vikes are playing better ball.

I think that any Vikes fan, or packers fan would agree, that a rematch would be awsome! And I dont think it would be the blowout it was on their second meeting of the year.

As a Packer fan I would love a rematch. Almost nothing I'd like to see than a NFC North Showdown to go to the Super Bowl. Well, a victory in Dallas would be very sweet, but in the event of a Packer loss, I'd rather be cheering for the Vikings in the Super Bowl than the Cowboys.

Vikings will definately have a tough job of it as they'll probably have to go through Seattle and Dallas on the road. GB will get either Tampa or New York at home most likely. I like our chances against Tampa, but New York could come in with something to prove after we smoked them earlier in the year.

I too am looking forward to a rematch......nothing better than a border rivalry in my opinion. The only problem with the above scenario is that the Vikings still have to MAKE the playoffs......Congrats to the NFC North Champs! GOD BLESS GREEN BAY!!!

The problem is you are comparing something completely different. My repsonse was about the the statement made that we would have to go to Lambeau in January. I was simply pointing out that it has not exactly been a visitors death trap lately. You are discussing trips to the playoffs, which the Pack has not gone to or had much success at for a while either.

I guess selective reading is very helpful also.

Even if the Vikings don't make the playoffs, I will be a Vikings fan.

And, I won't cry about it either. Anything is better than being a Packer fan. They love the Pack and WI, but all move to God's Country (MN).

      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. 
    • redlabguy
      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!
