Let the fun begin! Dallas is playing good football right now. I hope the Vikes bring their A-game next weekend. I still like our chances at the dome. A month ago many were questioning if the Cowboys would even make the playoffs.

Can't Wait!

Bring it on!

I like watching the Cowgirls lose more than I enjoy watching the Purple win.

Seriously.

Sad, I know.

Now we get the best of both worlds next weekend: Vikes win and Cowgirls lose.

WooHoo!

If the Vikes secondary can somewhat contain the Cowboys passing game and protect the old fart behind center, the purple have a pretty good shot next weekend. Skol Vikings!

We need to take care of the ball. Less than two turnovers and under 8 penalties and I think we will win the game. I think the homefield advantage will help get them out of the groove they are in.

We need a couple big plays early and it will be over.

And I hope the Packers can knock off NO.

The Pack and the Girls are both hot right now, but it sure would be fun to have the opportunity to play both teams during the playoffs. That's what playoff football is all about.

Ball control offense (start with the pass), keeps our defense off the field, O line and D line do their job = win for the Vikes.

The Vikes better bring their A-game. Dallas defense is scary and the offense is BA. I hope Dallas loses though. GB has a score to settle with Mn. A playoff game between the two is in order.

I'm on board for a Gb and Mn playoff game. It needs to be done.

Look for the refs to give GB and the vikes all the calls to make that matchup happen in the NFC championship game. It'll easily be the most watched championship game of all time, so if you don't think the NFL will do what it can to match them up, then you you belong in a psych ward crazy

As long as the vikes play good enough football to stay in the game, the refs will make sure they win it wink I think they'll be able to win without the help anyway though.

The Cowboys were the ONE team I didn't want to have to play. You guys that wanted to play them haven't been paying attention lately- THEY ARE GOOD the past month. And I mean REALLY good.

They are good...they're all good this time of year. Don't let the last two games against Philly get your undies in a bunch. They were plain and simply better than Philly and beat them the same way two times in a row IN DALLAS.

Dome field advantage this weekend will make them look much different than playing in front of their home fans.

Should be a great game...those who turn the ball over LESS...wins!!

If the Vikes do nothing to stop Ware, it will be another showing like the Panthers game.

Just another Favre beat down.

As long as AP holds onto the ball, and our secondary has good coverage for the game, then we may win.

Its going to be a good game and Dallas will move on.

I agree Zamboni. Dallas has continued to improve and are on their game.

The Vikes, who knows. They may show up to actually try to win in the NFL or show up to play the 9th grader.

My bet, Dallas.

If I had a bunch of money, I would lay it on all on the fact that we will see a MN/GB matchup for the championship.

The NFL will have say in these games.....just you watch wink

They could have arranged a MN/GB matchup yesterday with a Philly win.

Nope, they want a NFC championship at the Palace in Dallas to recoup some of their money they sunk into that thing. GB has fans all over the country, as does Dallas, and it would be a huge game.

After the nation got a view of the Vikings getting drilled on national TV three times, the NFL isn't going to take the chance of that lame horse ruining a NFC championship.

GB has to beat AZ yet, bud. If the AZ team that played us shows up, GB doesn't have a chance

That may happen.

A friend of mine in Iowa does some of this bookie stuff and he would alwways let me place bets on the college games but never the pro's.

He said the fix is in on almost every game for the victory or the points spread.

That it for what its worth.

Doesn't matter, bud.

The first step to arranging a MN/GB game was a Philly win. That didn't happen so we now know there is something else in the cards.

So I'm guessing you're quitting your day job since you obviously bet your life's savings on Dallas yesterday? Sounds like a sure bet from what you're saying....

No, but I am a realist. I would have bet you a hundred bucks on yesterdays game, easily. Dallas is the hottest team in the NFL over the past month, they WHOOPED the same team a week ago. They humiliated them. Philly can't say they pulled their starters like AZ did last week, they didn't.

Dallas is the ONE team I don't want anything to do with in the playoffs. I thought about a month ago the Eagles woud be, but they have stunk it up since.

A MN/GB championship matchup is what the NFL wants.

Not a first or second round game.

I don't think the vikes will have any trouble with the boys. The cowboys won't be able to run against us. Romo won't have time to throw. Old number 4 will pick apart the boys defense. Kind of a boring 34 to 10 vikeing win.....

      Found the walleyes during the afternoon today. Wind blown rock reef. 8 feet of water. Bobber and leech. All the walleyes had perch minnows in their bellies. We caught 11 and kept our 8. The one pictured was 23 inches.

      Just got back from another 5 days. Fishing was ok. Little more warm as and humid then I like but survived. Skeeters weren't real bad but the deerflies are getting to be real annoying.

      Well here is my two cents.  Have done a lot of fishing and not much catching.  Been very windy and now feels like a oven so its a hard bite. Walleyes we have caught have been fairly shallow.  Most on live bait but a couple on shad raps.  No real pattern ,  one here and one there. Bass are more active.  Morning has been good for them.  The past weekend I think its the most pontoons and wake boats I have ever seen on Whitefish.  Big fishfly hatch the last few days. This weekend you better get up early cause the armada forms about 10:00 am.  One strange thing is we still have sunnies on nests around our dock.  Very late for that.  So guys keep your eyes open as there are some crazies out there buzzing around.  Happy fourth!

      Awesome report. Thanks!

      The Leech Lake walleyes are on the move and our guides have been chasing them! With a recent fly hatch and some heat moving in this week has been a grind but we are still finding limits. A few keys to putting fish in the boat have been the location, the presentation and the wind.   Most of our fish have been on Sucker bay and the main lake. Duck point, Ottertail point and Stoney point have all been good and putting out fish. We have been focusing on the 11-14 feet of water and covering ground has been important. Both Duck and Ottertail points have nice break lines that top out around 8 and bottom at 20, which, is what we have been focusing on. Try to run your boat along the break line and make note of where the fish tend to be. If they are on the top of the break fish there and likewise for the deeper water.   Our presentation of choice, when the wind allows it, has been bottom bouncers with spinners. Gold, pink and white, and green have all been getting the Leech Lake walleye guide fish in the boat. Try to run these at 1.3-1.8 mph with just enough line out to “bounce off the bottom.”   The wind has been a nice advantage the past few days. Use the wind to push your boat along the desired path for a nice easy drift. As stated above the places we have been focusing on are actually in the same area but with different layouts. this allows you to make sure you are fishing in the waves and not in flat calm water. As you may know, leech is very clear so on a flat calm and sunny day it can be tough. Find the waves and find the action.   We do still have some openings for July yet. Give us a call to see what we have open. https://leechlakeguideservice.com Dennis Carlson with his Biggest walleye 27 inches. Caught on a green spinner rig

      There are sturgeon in all parts of the river, but Stillwater to Bayport is really gonna be your best shot at catching one.  Especially right around the Excell Energy plant.  Good luck.
    • gimruis
      I used to fish right below the Grays Bay dam on Lake Minnetonka when I was kid.  We caught all kinds of fish there.  I often wondered if a guy could start there and float further down on Minnehaha Creek in a kayak.  It sounds like its quite possible, especially after a good rain like we just received.  Might be worth a try.
    • Muskyhunter73
      I mostly fished muskies today. Had two hit this morning. Finally saw a fish on the rocks tonight. Heard of one 51 incher caught tonight. 
    • Muskies
      Thought I would go for a cast after supper...able to fish around reef point area for an hour using pop-r’s(by request from smalljaw)...lots of active smallies...here is a sample...all put back to their beds....
