You Minnesota based Packers fans- you know there are houses for sale in Wisconsin. Thought you might like to know.

You're kidding, right? Why would I want to move back to Wisconsin when I can pay really high taxes in Minnesota and be subjected to the most confusing and restrictive set of game and fish regulations in the nation?

Why would I move back? I ask you! Why? gringrin

Anyway, it's a little tough to be a BWCAW photography guide while living in Wisconsin. Thought you might like to know. I can leave my home state behind no problem. Leaving my team behind? Never. gringrin

The MN fans may have to move over to WI as well since there is no room left for a boat on the river of da-nile. whistle

Darren Sharper believes that the Vikings can go 12-4 and win the NFC North with Favre at QB.

Wow, it took a whopping dose of Favre Fevre to get LMITOUT to change his avatar. Somebody check that man's temperature! gringrin

From the Strib:

Don't bring this circus to town

By coaxing Brett Favre out of retirement, the Vikings would see ticket sales and media attention rise. But his divisive presence and equal-opportunity passes won't win a Super Bowl.

If the Vikings want to sell tickets, they should sign Brett Favre. If they want ESPN to build a base camp in Eden Prairie, they should sign Brett Favre. If they want to coax John Madden (or is it Frank Caliendo, I can't tell them apart anymore) out of retirement, and have him park his Winnebago at Winter Park, they should sign Brett Favre. If they want the Metrodome to become the petri dish in which the most interesting experiment in the NFL is conducted, they should sign Brett Favre.

There are lots of good reasons for coaxing a future Hall of Fame quarterback out of retirement. As long the Vikings don't think one of them is an aging Favre's ability to propel his team to the Super Bowl, then, what the heck? Sign Favre, watch the fireworks, and understand that this January, Favre might wind up looking all too much like a cross between Brad Johnson and Tarvaris Jackson.

Favre is the supermodel who maxes out your credit cards. He is the sports car that wipes out your bank account. He is enticing, and he is captivating, and he is trouble.

He drove the Packers bonkers. He left a locker room filled with angry ex-teammates when he left the Jets, who seemed quite happy to essentially trade him for an unproven Mark Sanchez.

He played brilliantly for the Jets for half a season last year, before almost single-handedly destroying their playoff chances with his vintage irresponsible throws.

Favre would give the Vikings a much better chance of selling out a home playoff game this year, and not much more of a chance of winning that game.

Look at Favre's postseason history. He won one Super Bowl, with a superior Packers team -- the same number as Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson.

One reason the Packers were so eager to hustle him out the door is that they didn't think, at his advanced athletic age, they could build a Super Bowl winner around him.

Ignore Favre The Myth -- the guy running around in your head throwing behind-the-back passes for 80-yard touchdowns -- and pay closer attention to Favre The Man.

Favre compiled a passer rating of 81.0 last year. (Tarvaris Jackson's, for the sake of comparison, was 95.4.)

In three of his past four seasons, Favre has failed to throw more for touchdowns than interceptions. He threw 22 of each last season while playing for a pretty good team.

Favre faded badly down the stretch last year, throwing two touchdown passes and nine interceptions as the Jets went 1-4 over their last five games to fall out of the playoffs.

As a Packer, after 1998, Favre went 3-6 in playoff games, throwing 16 touchdown passes and 18 interceptions. During that time he lost home playoff games to Michael Vick, Daunte Culpepper and Eli Manning.

Remember that killing interception Jackson threw against the Eagles? Favre -- the new, old Favre -- does that all the time.

If you want to win the Super Bowl -- and the Vikings are talented enough at almost every position to entertain such thoughts -- Favre is not your guy.

Bringing in Favre would also force Childress to sell his soul. Whatever you think of him, Childress has turned the Vikings' locker room into a much more professional and functional place. Favre would likely bring his prima donna act to Winter Park. That might not become a problem if he wins, but if he loses, it could split the roster.

Childress has shown increased flexibility the last year or two in accepting challenging personalities, enabling the Vikings to take a chance on Jared Allen (who was phenomenal last year) and Percy Harvin (who instantly upgrades the 2009 offense.) When the challenging personalities belonged to veteran quarterbacks, though, Childress wound up alienating Brad Johnson and Gus Frerotte.

Childress demands restraint and attention to detail from his quarterbacks. We have no idea how he'd react to one of Favre's underhanded lobs to a tightly covered receiver. The relationship could last minutes.

If Farve comes here chances are the vikes go up for sale after he failes to deliver, and he will. Verry huge chance they end up somewhere else, money talks.

I have to apologize. Favre will fail at his own demise but he will have help. The coaching of Childress will be the ultimate demise of this team and I have sympathy for Favre in a way but only to be disgusted by his arrogance to overcome a stupid head coach.

Oh how right you are finally Flats....I will CERTAINLY be using that montra. As I said, you can be driven and succeed with heart, but motivation for the sole purpose of veangance will not win a superbowl.

I adored the way Brett played the game when he wore the green and gold, He was surely one of the greats even with "most interceptions" as one of his many records. I cheered him, and applauded him, that is until the retirement circus started. He is as much to blame for that as Thompson is....hang up the helmet Brett. Your day in the sun has past. At the very best, he garners the Vikes two wins against the Pack, but that light some of you see at the end of the tunnel with him is not the superbowl, but that of an oncoming train.

Very well said Wade. Nice to hear a Cheesehead with a good head LOL. You're right though, Brett has just as much blame as Thompson does. I can see how Thompson was frustrated with him and did what he did.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that free agent Brett Favre is willing to undergo a "minor" procedure on his torn right biceps tendon that would allow him to play football this season.

Favre is reportedly "anxious" to sign with Minnesota and prepared to get the arm fixed. Surgeons would cut the tendon and the rehab period "would be quick." Favre and Brad Childress will continue their meetings today in Hattiesburg. We're expecting a resolution by early next week at the latest.

LOL that was a funny show this morning! I really can't see how much worse the guy can do with our team. And I will say this, if he WERE still a Packer, all of us Vikings fans would still hate the guy and all of the cheeseheads would still LOVE him. I find if funny that as soon as it's close to signing him, of all the hate of Brett Favre that has came out. As soon as he is to become a Viking its, Oh he only has ONE superbowl win. He has ALL those interceptions. He is old. He can't do it. Etc Etc Etc....Fact of the matter is, he is better than anything we have on our team right now. He is a future hall of famer. He loves to play football. What more can you ask from the guy? To play with heart? I think he has shown that more than enough. Don't throw as many interceptions? Did I mention that he really loves to play football? He is a gunslinger. We KNEW about those interceptions a LONG time ago.

Wade,

That's not just any train you refer to, that's "the DIESEL" train!

      Very, very few ducks in Ely today.  4 grouse seen with only 1 coming back to camp.   I literally saw more fish today than birds.  And I skipped the fishing gear this time! 😒
    • monstermoose78
      Finn and I hiked the river in Sherburne and only saw 5 swans. 1000 cranes and not one duck or goose.  Saw some guys looking in the grass and they said they dropped a woodduck and Finn found it for them. Boy Finn was mad when I gave them the duck.

      Fished Black Brook Flowage (Apple River) today. This is my kinda lake! Very few houses, small little boat launch. Only caught 2 little pike. Missed a small Muskie, and seen a mid 30’s hovering under the boat. Was tough dealing with the wind, but I like this place. Fishing below the dam with waders is a possibility also.

      I’d like to know what you have also.

      On the south end...  A really good week of fall walleye fishing.  Big numbers of fish being caught.  It should only improve as water temps get cooler.  This fall has been unseasonably warm. Big numbers of walleyes and saugers are set up along the south shore and anglers are catching a lot of fish.   Most anglers are anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner.  Live shiners are available and effective.  There are still a lot of walleyes being caught on spinners with minnows surprisingly.  Trolling crankbaits has also been catching a lot of fish. The best reports are coming from 18-28 feet of water across the south shore in areas such as Pine Island, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach, Long Point and Rocky Point.  Various schools within these depths.  In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, jumbo perch, sturgeon and even a few crappies are in the mix for walleye anglers.  On the Rainy River...   Emerald shiners continue to run in the Rainy River and more and more walleyes are entering the river each week.  Fishing has picked up but most believe when water temps reach the 40's, it will get even better.  Currently, temps are in the low 50's. Jigging with a frozen or live shiner, is the go to method.  Emerald shiners are tough to beat this time of year.  Some reports of big fish being caught, but not in big numbers... yet.   Sturgeon activity continues good.  A gob of crawlers and/or frozen shiners on a sturgeon rig (18 inch leader made of 60lb test, circle hook and a 2-3 ounce no roll sinker) is the ticket.  The catch and release season continues through April 23, 2022. Up at the NW Angle...   Fall fishing up at the Angle continues to be excellent.  Most anglers are using a jig and minnow or jig and plastic.  Some strong reports with warmer than normal water of spinners with a minnow or plastic being the hot bait.  Gold, pink and/or glow colored jigs and spinners are doing well.  Reminder, no live, frozen or dead bait being able to be transported over the border from the U.S. into Canada, consequently anglers boating into Ontario waters reporting various plastics on their jigs and spinners working great. Various areas of structure such as points, reefs and sandy areas in neck down areas continue to hold good fish.  12 - 26 feet is the range depending upon the spot.   Big crappies are in their fall spots and being caught on jigs and minnows in 25-30' around various structure. Muskie anglers report good fishing overall.  Trollers reporting mixed results.  One day is great, the other not so much.  Covering water trolling is a strong fall muskie technique and should get better as water cools.    Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.   Charter boat transport and float planes are still available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air.

      Minnesota’s waterways were unusually deadly this year, with 17 people losing their lives in boating-related drownings and crashes—the highest number since 2005. And with weeks of open water left this year, there’s a chance that total could climb higher.Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
