OUCH, THAT STINGS!!!!

The hits keep coming for the Minnesota Vikings.

This time, we’ve learned that the team will be without rookie cornerback Chris Cook for at least two weeks. He’s sidelined with a torn meniscus in his right knee and as Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports, Cook could be out longer than that.

It’s a position the Vikings can’t afford attrition at. One of the primary reasons the team drafted Cook in the second round out of the University of Virginia was to provide some help with Cedric Griffin still trying to work

his way back from a torn ACL.

Cook has had a strong training camp and preseason and this ensures that veteran Antoine Winfield and newcomer Lito Sheppard will start Sept. 9 at New Orleans in the season opener. There is a real depth issue here now after the team traded veteran Benny Sapp to Miami in order to acquire wide receiver

Greg Camarillo.

Settle down, he's a rookie and would have only played sparingly regardless.

He may not have played much but he was something. What do we have now????

Our offensive line is suspect and we cannot afford top lose any players if we plan on contending.

I love pre seasons like this. Statistically we have better seasons after them. I do not recall though last preseason stats and we had a great year. Although I recall a horrible pre-season in 00', but we went 11-5. Then I recall with great preseasons in 01' smirk and forward, but failed in the end.

Who is Cook anyways? grin

He is the guy the Vikings settled on, because they messed up and didnt trade up to seal the deal on the guy they wanted smirk

I'am glad that I will not be able to watch the Saints game on the 9th. The Vikes secondary is going to get eaten alive by brees with Lito in there,, not that there would have been much diff with Cook, but at least he has talent. Lito is washed up.

Saints 45

Vikes 17

better get some practice for Rogers etc,,

take the Saints - the points. It's the best pick of the 1st week.

Eh, it's all on our blitz. I'm not normally one to wish for harm to another player, but seeing Brees on the carpet looking through the helmet earhole sounds about right.

I'm not sending in the forks before the season even starts. Looking good in preseason means nothing!

Yeah, except for the small fact he was gonna start at right corner until Griffen got back.

Decker is bomb, I was hoping we were gonna get him in the draft.

Lito will buckle down, I think he still has some big plays left in the tank.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
    • Mike89
