I'm saying right now UMD will be in the Frozen Four. I'm pulling for all WCHA teams unless of course there playing UND smile. I would like to see a BC/UNO game. Blais knows how to beat Jerry York's teams. That was the last time UND beat BC...I think.

Yah, St louis jumps out as the hardest. Tough teams there.

Green bays could be a cake walk for the Sioux, Depends what Denver team shows up.

Looks like the possibility of a lot of inter conference games

St. Louis looks like the region of doom. It's always amazing how the NCAA likes to screw the WCHA. 4 teams in two regions.

BC fans are livid that they actually have to travel this year instead of having their regional within 150 miles (and they still don't show up).

THANK YOU NCAA committee for moving UMD out east. Not that it will matter if UMD plays anything like the last 2 periods of the BSU game. But I'm still glad that we have a better chance of advancing. Not that Yale is a cake walk, but I would choose to play them over the other 3.

UND should travel well to Green Bay, I would expect a decent following. In the past I'd predic that UND will have a rematch against DU in the region final, but I'm not so sure. Bummer that the WCHA's top 2 teams got matched up together, but one of them should advance at least.

We really need to reestablish this conference in national play. They played well in the regular season, but now is when it counts. To have a reasonable chance of a WCHA national title we need at least 2 teams to advance.

I like the CC BC match up. CC has alot of team speed. If Joe Howe can have a good game but its tough to go against BC on second thought. If I was putting money on that region I would go with BC in a heart beat. As much as I would love to see them lose especially to a WCHA team. Go Tigers, Go Mavs. Anybody else see away of BC losing that region? I say great goaltending is the most crucial to beat the Eagles.

Sure I could see the Mavericks doing it. They acutally played pretty well the 2nd half this year except when they had to play the Beavers. CC looked pretty tough against UND also. Best case BC has to get by both teams if UNO wins their opener. I would go 50/50 on BC coming out of that final if that's the case. Good for you if they lose, right?

. Good for you if they lose, right?

I would be lying if I said that BC hasn't just own UND but really they have owned the NCAA tourament. I can only think of one WCHA team that has beat BC in the NCAA, Wisconsin 2006 final. If UND won this year without playing BC I don't know if it would feel complete for me. I'm not just a UND fan this time of year. I pull for all the WCHA teams in this tourney. No selfish reasons here Solbes. Making any plans for Bridgeport Con?

Hopefully they show the games on ESPNU or ESPN2. I think UND's games are schedule on ESPN3 which our cable company doesn't even offer. I bet something gets work out there.

I just did my bracket/picks. While I will be cheering for as many WCHA teams in Frozen Four as possible, I have to make my picks based on what I think will happen.

In the East Region, I have Yale beating UMD in the regional final. I don't think Miami will have any trouble coming out of the Northeast Region. I think the West Region will be tough for the WCHA; I see Michigan beating BC in that region final.

The Midwest Regional will end up being a Denver-UND rematch. As much as I would love to see UND win it all this year (if it is indeed the last year they can use the Sioux nickname), I think Denver wins the rematch.

Frozen four: Denver over Michigan, Miami over Yale. Denver over Miami for the Championship.

Looks good, I havent done mine yet.

We should figure out a way to do a bracket here.

Solbes, you are likely the smartest in this group. Is there an online bracket or a way to do it. Or do we all just say our picks.

Jag - Your championship game prediction isn't even possible. BC and UND are on the same side of the bracket. It probably will be the championship game (just like the 80 olympics - USA vs. USSR in the semis) as the other side of the bracket doesn't stand a chance grin

This sucks - I have the exact same picks as cbrooks.

I might have to switch a game just to be different. Merrimack instead of Notre Dame will be my different pick I guess.

I'm going back and forth on the UNO/BC regional final game. You can keep your Notre Dame pick if you want.

Also huge progress this year, but we need some further college hockey representation. A good mix is what makes it a lot of fun.

Let's see, Gophers check. UND Big check, seems like everyone's a Sioux fan this year wink Duluth check. Bemidji check. Saint Cloud check. Do we have a Badger fan here, if not that's weird? How about Mankato? Wasn't someone here a Denver fan? How about CC, Tech, or AA?

Yeah we had a Denver fan this weekend. I was a little surprise. I think Steve Foss is a Badger fan when not playing North Dakota. I guess he doesn't count. I hope to see other fans on here representing.

Just so you all know... I will put it in writing. I AM THE BIGGEST SIOUX HOCKEY FAN IN MINNESOTA! A big fan of their coaching staff through the years and always the hardest hitting team in college hockey! I was even fortunate enough to share a conversation with Sioux Legend Coach Blais at the X last weekend. A very important moment in a Sioux fans life smile

Jag are you from ND or did you go to college there? Maybe both? Maybe none of the above?

Kind of funny how it started... Grew up near St. Cloud and went to all the Huskies games before D1 was even a conversation. So the Gophers weren't my team outta the gates, but since the Huskies weren't playing against them yet I rooted for everyone else... Then I began to see the stlye of play UND put forth. That was it hooked at the age of 7, now 25 years later it keeps getting stronger! Even went to college in Mankato and rooted against my own school smile. I have some family in Winnipeg so the Canadian players are all good with me... I sure hope they can put together a Tourney this year the last six have been a nightmare!!!

      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.
    • smurfy
      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.

      Selling my Vexilar FL-12, new ice ducer two years ago and new battery two years ago. Has battery indicator as well as quick connect charger although I've charged with gator clips. $225.00. Works as it should, finally finished school so upgrading. PM me if intrested
    • rayguy
      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!
    • Rick
      Awesome report. Thanks!
    • Joe
      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
    • DonBo
      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....
