I won my division again and trying for my FOURTH consecutive championship! cool.gif Even after a rough year of injuries and bad match ups, I've made it through again. Highest scoring team of the league and also the highest points per week average. Romo and Westbrook have pulled me through the year along with NE's defense and Ryan Grant as of late plus a few others like Fitzgerald.

I beat the #1 team this past weekend and I was the #5 seed (at least I am up by 16 points and I still have Minnesota's defense to play). I was very lucky because 4 of his guys (Tom Brady, Terrell Owens, Joey Galloway and Dallas Clark) only had a total of 3 points between them. Hard to believe!!

You sound just like mine this weekend, I beat the #1 person in one of the leagues I'm in. The person had Romo, Owens, Addai were the big 3 on their team. I put out every week, Favre, Grant, Graham, A.Johnson Or Holt depends on the match-up, Jennings, D.Lee, Crosby and it goes between the Cheeseheads and NE def. In another league I advanced thanks to Westbrook not scoring that TD in the 4th, the guy would of beat me by about 4 points with that TD.

MnWild, I bet there are a lot of fantasy players upset on what happened with Westbrook. The guy I beat had Westbrook too so it was not a good week for him with his big 4 only getting 3 points and then Westbrook gave up a touchdown to run out the clock. Never seen that happen before and the announcers even said that was a fantasy no-no.

I won the division, even after waiving Moss the first weekend after ESPN said he was through. My fleet of kick-returners has kept me alive. This week though, I have to face a 13-0 team....The Brady/Moss connection.

Finished #2, #3 and #4 in the regular season in the three leagues I'm in. Fell flat on my face in the first round of the playoffs in the league I was the #4 seed so long gone in one. League I was the #3 finisher I managed to put up the second highest points in the first round only to lose to the highest scorer in the first round. Sucks but it happens.

First round of the playoffs in a 14 team league I break the league scoring record by a point in a league that is in it's 20th year. (record had stood since 1992 so that is kind of cool) Also did that with Housh scoring a big fat 0 for me or it could have been even more. Managed to sneak by in the semifinals and I'm in the running to be the repeat champion. Going against the commisioner of our league and he is also who I beat last year to win it all. He also has never won the championship so I know how bad he wants it! My matchups look pretty good (much better than the semifinal week) so I'm in the running for the repeat. Just need to survive R. Moss not going off on the Dolphins!

      A region-wide effort to better understand West Nile virus in ruffed grouse is getting underway in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.  “In the Great Lakes region, West Nile virus has been found in a small number of grouse with no known population-level effects at this point,” said Charlotte Roy, grouse project leader with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Still, we want to let hunters know we’re in the first steps of monitoring the virus, and we’re planning to do some limited testing of birds this fall.” In 2017, West Nile virus was identified in more ruffed grouse in the Great Lakes states than in the past. The virus has been present in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin for about 17 years. West Nile virus has been documented in more than 250 species of birds; however, not all birds develop clinical disease from the virus. Corvids (including blue jays and crows) are very prone to illness and death from the virus, while other species may be less so or may not develop symptoms at all. Last year, Michigan had 12 positive cases of West Nile virus in ruffed grouse. Prior to 2017, only one positive ruffed grouse had been found in Michigan, and that was in 2002. The virus was confirmed in one ruffed grouse in the early 2000s in Minnesota, and is yet to have been detected in a Wisconsin ruffed grouse. West Nile virus in ruffed grouse has become a topic of concern because of a recent study in Pennsylvania reporting that the virus may have contributed to population declines in areas of lower-quality habitat or where habitat was scarce. Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin are in the early stages of planning to test samples from grouse this fall but at this point there is no evidence that the virus is having a population-level impact in the Great Lakes region. “By monitoring birds at a regional level, we will be able to gain a better understanding of this disease in ruffed grouse,” said Kelly Straka, state wildlife veterinarian with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Ruffed grouse are hunted annually by around 300,000 hunters across the three states. Preliminary reports from 2017 hunters were mixed across the Great Lakes region. While the virus could impact brood survival of grouse, other factors such as cold, wet springs during nesting and hatching; drought conditions; or habitat decline can also affect birds seen and harvested. Biologists in the region are optimistic that the great habitat for ruffed grouse in the Great Lakes states will help populations thrive despite the virus. “We are looking to hunters and outdoor enthusiasts to help us in this endeavor,” said Mark Witecha, upland wildlife ecologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. “This is an excellent example of agencies and organizations taking a proactive approach and working together to expand our knowledge about WNV and ruffed grouse.” Recently, the Midwest Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies Health Committee held its annual meeting in Traverse City, Michigan. West Nile virus was one of the topics for state wildlife health leaders. More than 25 wildlife health professionals from 13 Midwestern states and Canada were in attendance. Individual agencies are currently reviewing ways they will be monitoring their grouse populations for West Nile virus, and additional information will be shared when more details are determined. Like humans, wild animals can be exposed to West Nile virus and survive the exposure. Currently, there is no evidence of humans becoming infected by consuming properly cooked birds or by handling birds. Research has shown dogs can be infected but are very resistant to developing clinical signs of the disease and are considered an end host. Ruffed grouse hunting is open in the fall and Minnesota hunting information can be found at mndnr.gov/hunting/grouse. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      An angler from Stillwater has set a new record for lake sturgeon in the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ catch-and-release category.  Jack Burke and fishing buddy Michael Orgas were recently on a lake sturgeon fishing trip to remember. Fishing on the Rainy River in Koochiching County, the duo was having a lot of success fishing for Minnesota’s biggest fish, landing 20 fish in three days including six lake sturgeon over 60 inches before hooking into the new state record – a 73-inch long lake sturgeon. “We had been having some great action and knew there were big fish in the Rainy River,” Burke said. “This particular fish took about 45 minutes to reel in. When we got it closer to the boat it blew some bubbles and came to the top; I knew it was a huge fish!” Burke caught the fish on May 4, around 11 a.m. using a muskie rod supplied by his fishing partner Orgas, with 80-pound braided line rigged with a circle hook and crawlers. The fish measures 73 inches in length and 30 inches in girth. This beats the previous record by 3 inches that was set by two separate anglers who both boated 70-inch fish on the same day in April 2017. There are two kinds of Minnesota state records: one for catching and keeping the biggest fish in each species based on certified weight; and the other for the length of a caught and released muskellunge, northern pike, lake sturgeon or flathead catfish. The DNR announces new state records in news releases, on social media and on the DNR website. Find current records and guidelines for each type of state record at mndnr.gov/recordfish.

      I went out on Saturday for about 5 hours and my friend and I caught a lot of crappies but they were mostly all dinks (8-10 inchers).  We only caught 4 of them over 10 inches.  Plus a few small bass and one pike.  We released all of them.  Water temp was right around 60, a little warmer up shallow in a bay.

      Avid angler Dustin Stone caught a new state record silver redhorse in the certified weight category of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ record fish program.  Stone caught the 10-pound, 6-ounce silver redhorse while fishing for lake sturgeon on the Rainy River in Koochiching County on April 28. He was fishing with 80-pound braided line tipped with a night crawler. “We had been doing very well fishing for sturgeon, landing seven fish over the 60-inch mark,” Stone said. “We started catching a bunch of suckers and redhorse before this fish, so this fish felt quite a bit bigger than the others.” Fortunately for Stone, his fishing buddy had extensive knowledge about fish like silver redhorse, and Stone almost released the fish until his partner advised him to check the weight and current record on that species of fish. The new state record silver redhorse was weighed on a certified scale at a meat shop in Granite Falls, where two observers witnessed the weighing. Two DNR fisheries experts in the Ortonville office confirmed the species identification of silver redhorse. The official weight is 10-pounds, 6-ounces with a length of 26-3/4 inches and a girth of 17-1/2 inches, beating the previous state record of 9-pounds, 15-ounces held since 2004. “I’m glad the DNR does this record fish program. It’s fun to see the records. I’m kind of addicted to this now and I’m going to try and break a couple more!” Stone said.

      Commentary by C.B. Bylander,
      DNR information officer The bass fishing catch-and-keep season opens Saturday, May 26, and spring is the time to enjoy it.  Largemouth and smallmouth bass can be easier to catch in spring and early summer when they spend more time in shallow water. Later, as water temperatures rise, bass move to deeper structure in search of sunken points, rocky humps and weed lines that offer both prey and protection. So, why wait? Now is the time to spring into action. The catch-and-release only season opened in most of the state May 12. Statewide, you can start keeping fish on May 26, the start of Memorial Day weekend. The bass season doesn’t close until Feb. 24, 2019. Minnesota’s reputation as an outstanding bass fishing state is clearly on the rise. This is due, in part, to the world-class smallmouth bass fishing at Mille Lacs Lake. Though local and regional anglers have long known about the lake’s great fishing this became national knowledge in 2016 and 2017 when the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year championships happened at Mille Lacs. Simply put, the abundance of big smallmouth bass blew the pros away. In fact, the 2016 fishing was so phenomenal – the winning three-day limit totaled 76 pounds – that the following year Bassmaster ranked Mille Lacs number one on its list of 100 best bass lakes. Though the spotlight has been on Mille Lacs the broader story is that Minnesota is home to some 2,000 largemouth bass lakes, 500 smallmouth bass lakes and tens of thousands of miles of natural streams and rivers that hold bass. That’s a lot of water, and it’s a lot of water that isn’t fished for bass as hard as southern state waters because so many Minnesota anglers prefer to fish for walleye. Never fished bass in Minnesota before? Here are two thoughts. Think small: A lot of great bass fishing exists in lakes less than 1,000 acres in size. So, don’t overlook these smaller opportunities, especially if they are in remote areas and have a lot of shallow water. Go to the DNR’s LakeFinder has helpful information at mndnr.gov/lakefind. But if you like big: Popular destinations include the Twin Cities’ Lake Minnetonka and these regional destinations: the southeast’s Mississippi River, the south-central’s Green Lake, the  west-central’s Alexandria Chain of Lakes, the north-central’s Gull Lake Chain of Lakes and the far north’s Rainy and Vermillion lakes. Limit and special fishing regulation information is available at mndnr.gov/fishmn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Well, spent Thursday and Friday on Kab for my first time ever. It's a beautiful lake, the weather on the other hand could have been better for camping. It poured both nights, and during the day it seemed like it was either windy, rainy, or both. Unfortunately we didn't have much luck and didn't boat a walleye. We fished around Bittersweet Island and that general part of the lake, and fished at varying times, depths and presentations. About the only thing we didn't try was fishing around sunrise. Talked to a grizzled vet of the lake at the landing on Saturday. He said sometimes the strange weather patterns turn the fish off up there. I'm going to go with that excuse - we had a great time but was certainly disheartening after hearing how great the fishing was on Opener to have such poor luck.   Will definitely be up there again though. Beautiful area.
