T-Wolves new faces

  • Official Fishing Report Team - MN

Well I have to admit so far I have been impressed with this trade but time will tell. In my opinion I also was sorry to lose Wally(good character and all around good player) but I think we may have done the right thing.

The team really seems to have alot more athletiscisim and speed with the newcomers and the Big man Blunt has done more in 2 games than Kandi did in 2 seasons. Marcus Banks what a performance!These guys bring much needed speed in transition something we haven't seen in a while from the wolves. As of right now if they keep this up Garnett should be able to get some much needed rest. This I feel will help them definately later twoards the end of the season. I feel the hardest thing about this trade is how is Casey going to be able to rotate and mix all of this talent. As of right now Casey seems to be doing a good job with his new faces Hopefully it continues!

I watched the Boston game also. Like you I was pretty impressed. I also know they were extra "jacked" playing there old team. It was fun to see Wally get a standing "O" and Kandi get boo's. I thought Banks did much better than Jaric has done lately. I kinda hope they trade Jaric and t-Hud off. I bet KG didn't know what to think, watching the 4th quarter! grin.gif So it was nice to see some spark from these guys...it was fun to watch a whole game again. Now the just need to keep jellin' as a team, and see how they do once everyone knows the plays!

Blount is better then I thought he would be but he still needs to settle down a little when he has the ball.

I saw a few times he would start spinning and making moves and then get the ball stripped. If he would just make one move and shoot he would be better off.

I think he is teachable though. Better then Kandi.

I think that there must be more in the works--I am hoping that T-Hud may be on the block. I think that for the first time that the Wolves may be deep enough to pull off some trades! I have to eat my words as I think that this trade is going to turn out to be decent!

I think alot of people were against it at the start. But I along with many are starting to turn around.

Sounds like Hudson, Jaric, Banks, or Carter could be used as trade bait. Personally Jaric and Hudson can go if you ask me.

I like to see KG excited again, he had a great quote last night. Someone asked if he liked what he saw from banks, he said, "I don't like it, I love it."

Personally I am triedof T-Hud making one shot, then the next time he comes down the floor firing up another without anyone around. I think they should hang on to Banks and see how he comes along. As far as Jaric, I have had him on Fantasy teams the past few years and he really doesn't put up great numbers. I didn't like him when we got him.

I still would like them to get Boozer. They won't let him play in Utah anyway. Just my .02!

The worst thing about Jaric is we gave up a first round pick to get this guy too. Also Banks is more of a pure point guard anyway unlike Jaric so watching Banks last night was fun. It would be nice to get Boozer for like a Jaric and Hassell then we would have T-Hud, RD, KG, Boozer, and Griffen as starters nice fit maybe?

I agree Jaric hasn't put up the numbers and doesn't look as crisp as others. T-Hud is two streaky for me one game he's hot then he's cold. I would look at possibly tradeing these two but not Hassel he's been proveing himself lately and he definately know's how to play defense. Like someone said it was nice to see a smile on Garnetts face. Hopefully we see more in the future as we all realize Garnett defianately is the Franchise player and the core of the team. He definately deserves a championship and slowly but surely adding the right pieces to the puzzle will help him get closer.

I really love the excitement from the whole team. That first game that the new guys played, Ricky Davis never sat down. When he was on the bench, he was out cheering and yelling. By the 2nd half, the whole team followed suit. I like everything I see so far. I actually look forward to Wolves games now, a first this season.

Even after tonight? Shows how well we match up against a good team. Man the Wolves are horrible. Flip has the Pistons rolling, back to back to back coach of the month, figures.

We didn't play that bad against the Pistons, I think they're just that good. That makes 12 of the last 13 for them. They haven't lost back to back all year & had lost their previous game, meanwhile we're working out our new rotation with four new guys, sounds like a blowout recipe to me. By no means do I think we're an upper echelon team, but we didn't make the playoffs last year & now we have a pretty realistic shot of making them, that's progress.

I'll be shocked if the Pistons don't play in the finals for a 3rd straight year, go back & figure out how many teams have done that, it's less than 5 I'm guessing. The Celtics, Bulls, & Lakers would be my best guess.

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it

      Del, I want to clarify my post regarding the Vermilion Club pizza. First of all, the latest online review for the Vermilion Club was July 4th, 2021. I ate there twice after that review. Both times our group ate pizza and both times the pizza was excellent. I've eaten Poor Gary's pizza for a very long time both when we visited for many years, when we lived on Birch Point, and every time we're there since we left. I could tell a Vermilion Club pizza with a blindfold on. It has a very distinct taste and smell. We absolutely love it. BUT, this time it was different. I even asked our waitress if Poor Gary's pizza had been replaced by new owners. None of our group thought the pizza was even close to what it had been. Now, I'm not knocken the Vermilion Club. I ate there way back in the late 50's when George and Dorothy Tuma owned it. They have always served great food and I have no reason to doubt that their appetizers, sandwiches, etc. are still great. Just understand that pizza and other food is made in 2 different kitchens. I don't know what changed with the pizza kitchen since last September when we were there before this latest trip but something did. I wouldn't hesitate to go back and eat there again. But next time, it'll be on wings night.

      On the south end...  Resorts are adapting to high water conditions.  Despite lots of water, the vast majority of resorts are open, charter boats are running, and summer fishing is in full swing. Most boat ramps are open including Wheeler's Point and others.  Call ahead to your favorite resort or check their Facebook page for specifics. Lots of walleyes being caught in many different locations.  Some fish are in 4-15 feet on sand capitalizing on shiner and minnow spawning.  Others are on shallow rocks eating crayfish.  Others are deeper, 25 - 33', feeding on schools of minnows and various critters coming out of the mud.     Some anglers are still jigging, but drifting with spinners with a crawler or minnow has been super effective this week.  Both methods are working.  Gold, glow, and pink have been good colors this week for jigs and spinners. Trolling crankbaits and covering water has been very effective this past week.  Shiny gold and purple are a couple of good colors.  In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, smallmouth bass and even an occasional muskie are being caught.   Anglers are allowed a combined limit of 6 walleyes and saugers on the MN side of LOW.  Up to 4 can be walleyes.  All walleyes between 19.5 - 28.0" must be released.  One allowed over 28" per day.   On the Rainy River...   The river still has a lot of current.  Anglers keying in on current breaks as a rule.   A mixed bag in the river right now includes walleyes, saugers, smallmouth bass, and pike.  Sturgeon season reopens July 1st.   Current breaks off of the main channel for walleyes and saugers.  Smallmouth bass near rocky areas, feeder streams and bridge embankments.   Bays have been good for pike.  Lots of big pike and even good walleye reports in bays and feeder rivers to the Rainy River.  Lots of shiners in the river. Up at the NW Angle...  Fishing continues to be very good up at the Angle.  Anglers are fishing both the U.S. side and Ontario side of the lake with good success. Flag Island flats and areas around Garden Island were just a couple of areas good this week.  Lots of walleyes with some mixed in pike.  Fish being caught jigging, pulling spinners and trolling crankbaits.   A jig and minnow and pulling crawler harnesses have been good fishing deeper structure as well.  Neck down areas, rocky points and cabbage weeds all holding fish.  There are typically some fish shallow near shore morning and evening with good numbers being caught. A mixed bag for most anglers with walleyes, saugers, pike, smallmouth bass, crappies and jumbo perch. Excellent muskie fishing with numbers of fish being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Nope, not there anymore.  Just don’t get up there enough anymore.  Sadly.   Taxes are cheap enough to not really worry about and still have it.     smurf does the pissin’.  I wouldn’t do a thing like that to good furniture. 😉
