How about those Vikings? Its starting to look a little of 1998.Hopefully we will make the playoffs and not choke as always. With them playing so good it is hard to get out and fish on Sundays.I can see it now the Twins win the world series,the vikes the super bowl,t-wolves win the nba and the gophers smell the roses.

Glad to see the Vikings are pulling it together again. Moss played like he should. Wicked defense too. Hopefully they keep it up. Nice to have Frerotte to fill in for Daunte.

Good Fishin,
Matt

Hey Mr.Clean! Ya' beat me to this post. Yahooo! I live and breath purple. During the preseason I'd have guessed the vikes might not have won 6 games total this year. Holy smokes was I wrong!

Frerotte was fantastic. I can't remember for sure what the stats were, but I don't think he missed to many passes. He was like a rifle out there! It's really a great feeling knowing that we've got that caliber a player as a back up to one of the highest rated QB's in the league.

I'm betting on a playoff berth now, and if they can keep up this level of play, well, who knows? I'll be going apesh_t if they can make it to the BIG SHOW!

Go Vikes!

I can't believe I've been able to watch two and a half games on Utah stations this year despite the Vike's dismal season last year. This is a record! We weren't allowed to see the game with the Lions and the Fox station switched to another game today at halftime. Went to get a sandwich and thought I was just seeing the halftime report of other games. To think that I missed a day of fishing with the kids for only half a game! At least they trounced one of the teams revered around here for the 21 years I've been a Viking fan away from his native Minnesota.
Wouldn't it be great to have all of the pro MN win championships? They could quite realistically.

They are looking great! Good chance against a Vick-less Atlanta of going into the bye week 5-0... I wouldn't mind seeing Gus play another game - hopefully Cullpepper and Moss can get healthy and remain healthy for the rest of the season.. Denver after the bye week will be our first real test... With Portis healthy, they will be tough..

I was at the game Sunday. It was really nice watching a Viking Q-back dropping back, looking for a receiver, finding his man and throwing with authority. The front line is a brick wall. Ontario and Moe are stepping up and getting first downs. Tice is calling on everbody to handle the ball. It is fun to watch becaue you never know who is going to get the ball.

The D attacks and shuts em down and there is no more of that bend-don't-break BS.

This team has come along way since we booed Cullpepper off the field last year. I think it will be a good year to be a Viking fan.

We shouldn't have got too excited. We jinxed them! This hurts worse than '98 . . . .at least that loss was to a respectable team!

The Vikings won't be any good until the there's a new owner and the mistakes of Denny Green are flushed away. Ever notice that players cut by the Vikings seldom show up again? Meanwhile, call your legislator and tell them, "No new stadium."

      On the south end... Ice roads and ice trails are extending out on Lake of the Woods looking to connect with schools of walleyes and saugers.  Some ice roads are out as far as 24 miles.   The subzero cold snap is good for extending ice into March, but it was tough on the bite.  Once the weather started warming up, so did the bite.   Most anglers report picking through numbers of small fish to catch eaters, slot fish and some true trophy fish over 28 inches. Depths vary depending upon outfitter based on where they are fishing, but as a rule, 32-36 feet has been the norm.  The morning / evening bite for walleyes in shallow water,16 - 19 feet, has been active for some. Jigging a lipless crankbait with vibration and rattles has been working well to catch some fish and also draws other fish into the area you are fishing.  Some fish in more of a neutral mood will slide over and take interest in your deadstick, a live minnow just off of the bottom. As a rule, glow and bright colors during cloudy days, the golds and silvers during sunny days.   A mixed bag for many being reported, including walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout (burbot), pike, tullibees and even a few sturgeon and crappies.   On the Rainy River...   The golden hour (beginning and end of the day) continues to be the best on the river for those fishing for walleyes and saugers.  Some good reports this week. Some sturgeon have been iced at night by those hunting dinosaurs.   Ice conditions can vary on the river as there is current, work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Resorts up at the Angle are hard at work staying on the walleyes.  As a rule, 24 - 30 feet of water is the norm.   Similar to the south shore, using a noisy, more aggressive lure has been effective, as has a jigging spoon tipped with a piece of minnow.  Work the jigging line in one hole with a deadstick and a plain hook a foot off of the bottom in your second hole.   Many eater walleyes caught this week with a variety of other fish in the mix.  Some anglers fishing the Ontario side for crappies are finding some nice slabs. Driving through Canada to the Angle no longer requires vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App. For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, snowmobiling across the lake on the marked trails or utilizing the Lake of the Woods Passenger (bombardier) Service are best options.  Fish houses are out through March 31st, walleye and sauger season through April 14, pike season never closes.

      Visitors to Minneopa State Park may soon notice fewer trees near the waterfall area of the park. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will remove 20 trees from the area, including 17 ash trees, beginning Feb. 6.Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I can confirm that I have 3-4 bars the entire drive from Cook to The Landing. When I winter park at a cabin near CigarGuy, I get two bars way up on the hill but still through the trees. There is good reception out on the lake but I haven't exactly been riding around and pulling out my phone to check my cell reception.   Depending on where you are, you may have 4 bars or none. I have none still, but that's because I'm on the north side of a hill with tall trees between my cabin and the tower.

      ~10" perch and an 8" bluegill

      Something else to just keep in mind here now too is that the deadline to remove permanent overnight unattended shacks is in exactly one month in the southern 2/3 of the state - March 6.  Plan ahead and don't let your castle get stuck out there beyond the deadline.  The DNR can and will confiscate it on site because I know people who have experienced this.

      I heard Green lake by Princeton has plowed roads and truck and castles out there. I will swing by to check it out. Please check the ice conditions for yourself. There is 4-6 inches if slush ice so take that off your totals as that is not very strong.
