ESPN's John Clayton suggests that free agent Brett Favre's answer to the Vikings' overtures "may be no for now," but says the door won't be completely shut until training camp.

Clayton believes Yahoo's report that something happened within the last 24 hours to put talks "on hold," but isn't ruling anything out like Yahoo seems to do. For as wishy-washy as Favre is, it's still very hard to believe that he's suddenly made a final decision. The Vikings, though, could definitely call off talks if they're not sold on Favre's commitment level.

I heard a cut was going to be done to make his tendon heal faster in-lue of the normal surgery, so he could play this season.

4WE, you seen my post on the last page winklaugh

I think I am actually going to pre-buy some game tickets now, so I can get my Dome Farve gear this season. Buy them now, cause when Favray signs, you know they will sell out like the old days wink At least we will not have to worry about "black outs" this year wink

I can't believe I just said on to T-Jack and Sage! We are still a QB away from being a serious contender.

I still wouldn't rule out Favre returning. IF he is getting the surgery done(I have heard from a few places), it means he is thinking about something(he does not need the surgery if he does not play football).

Yahoo sports is reporting that favre doesn't want to play for the vikings. He plans on staying retired. He's supposed to announce it to the public soon

What I don't understand is how can ALL the reporters bring "stories" to the public and pass them off as legit. Some really, really poor reporting done on this whole episode. I think it's now over.

Now the Vikes could turn into the Broncos and Sage and TJunk could say they want to be traded and felt they have been stabbed in the back like Cutler. That'll be the next thing.

We don't need a warn out QB. The Vikes need to open up the checkbook and get a stud from somewhere. Maybe already to late for this season.

We will just die with TJ.

I'm sure TJack and Sage are probably a little bruised from this latest quest for a new q-back but they haven't earned the right to complain or request anything yet. I was watching ESPN tonight and it still didn't seem like an end has been put to this. Clayton thought that talks would again resume in mid to late June so Favre wouldn't have to show for all the mini-camps and OTA's. As the world turns I guess....

I think we need to check who is going to be a free agent next year and go with that, this year is already set from the way it looks, but hey we are still better than the Packers and that's all that matters to me.

      Try Duane's Marine in Virginia,MN. Great service, a Evinrude/ Johnson dealer, on the second generation.

      I posted some information on a May 5 on Rainy lake 2020 fishing .... basically no crossing the border.   Muskies HSOShow.com Family 'we have more fun' I Share On FishingMN  132 199 posts Location: Reef Point, Rainy Lake Author Posted May 5 Found this information and thought it would be good to share:   This from the CDN gov’t.  COVID-19 Notice: February 3, 2021 During the COVID-19 pandemic, unless exempted, foreign national boaters are not permitted to enter Canadian waters. Failure to comply with the current prohibition of entry for discretionary or optional reasons (leisure, pleasure fishing, sightseeing, etc.) may result in severe monetary penalties or criminal conviction and/or imprisonment. Visit Transit through Canadian waters for more information.   Opener on the Ontario side of rainy lake is May 15. Good fishing to everyone!

      That's a good thought. I'll call but they went "online" only last year so he no longer has a shop. He talked with me about how he needed to cut his fixed costs in order to compete with all of the online parts suppliers selling out of their garages.   It's a shame though. That place was amazing. Lots of great, old motors on the walls. When I went there needing a new lower unit for my 1957 motor, he pulled out a box and said "which color?" The place was a timewarp of boat motors.

      I'll be up there with a couple friends on the chain. Never have any confidence for walleyes on opener, so we'll go after whatever bites (with an emphasis on eyes). 😀

      On the south end...  On the lake, the focus is on the May 15, 2021 Fishing Opener for walleyes.  There is much optimism as fishing in the Rainy River this spring was excellent and reports of good fishing from the spring season on the lake was also good. The limit for walleyes and saugers during the open season is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes.  There is a slot limit in which all walleyes 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One can be kept over 28 inches.   Pike anglers are still catching fish in back bays. The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.     On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers are enjoying catch and release through 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season opens up again on 7/1/21 - 9/30/21. Good numbers of sturgeon have been running in the Rapid River near Clementson just east of Baudette this past week.  These fish are incredible to see up close, but are also very much protected and respected. Anglers looking to this weekend and the opener.  Typically, there is some good walleye fishing in the river early in the season, such as this weekend. Up at the NW Angle...  A few anglers fishing pike in back bays but most looking forward to the May 15th fishing opener.  The go to walleye spots come the opener will be shoreline and island structure and underwater points.  The technique, a jig and a minnow! With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      i will be up in the area but not sure i will hit the chain.  the history with me and opener on the chain has not been productive so this year I am finding a smaller shallow lake in the area and going to hit it for walleyes.  I have not asked my father in law what the temps were but he has hit south cross and clamshell a few times and when fish are caught they have been on the smaller side.  Good Luck to you!
    • ozzie
      If I snagged an anchor line I am pretty sure i would not ask the anchored angler to lift so I can get my jig back, but I am sure I would warn them that there is a hook now in there anchor line!  I am that way fishing around docks...if I get caught on a dock I will always butt up to it and carefully remove my hook so they do not stick themselves or have a little kid get stuck from it.  Amazingly I have had confrontations with people in this regard!  And it is not like i am pitching bass jigs as I am usually crappie fishing around docks so i am using light line, small hook and cork bobber so I am not hurting a dock if i accidentally cast into it.  Oh well...Good luck to all you Vermillion fisherman on opener and in the rest of the season!

      No one's been out on the chain?

      Twin City Outboard in Shakopee only works on old motors.  They do great work and the pricing is reasonable.
    • SkunkedAgain
      My 1960 Johnson Seahorse is on the fritz. I did an overhaul the over the winter rebuilding the carb, replacing dry fuel hoses, fixing two stripped bolts (helicoils) on the powerhead, etc... This spring she only wants to run on one cylinder. I am assuming that it's the coil or something similar but suck at the electrical side.    Great American Marine in Bloomington won't touch old motors anymore. Neither will Boat Motor Recyclers in Burnsville (1990 and up!).    Does anyone up near Vermilion still work on older motors? I'll take a recommendation for somewhere near the lake or in the Twin Cities. Any input is appreciated.
