Recommended Posts

I'm kind of curious as too how the packers have 2 monday night football games? I thought the previous years success had alot of bearing on who gets monday night games.

Probably because MNF has a love affair with hillbilly favre and knows it will be their last two chances to spend 3 hours kissing his behind!!!!

You would have thought after the packers were on national TV about 13 times last year and as rotten as they were that we wouldnt have too watch them this year.

I've got a question, why are the Vikings playing on monday night? They have nobody/nothing that would get the fans attention, wait they signed Hutchinson, big draw there and let's not for get Johnson, that guy can throw it deep to, well nobody i guess so I suppose he can spin around and hand it off to, well nobody, wait I forgot that they signed Chester, he should take them to the promised land!!! smile.gif

By the way, how many Super Bowls ya got?? I love that one!! smile.gif

What was the packers record last year and what was the Vikings record last year? Thats all I can really say otto.... I mean your team has the #5 overall draft pick... might it be another J. Reynolds picks or darrell Thompson or Tony Mandarich etc... I'd be nervous about the Packers blowing their high draft pick again more than having them blown out on MFL. Both could happen.... tongue.gif

come on Buzzsaw, the vikings beat the packers last year twice both games on last second field goals so the way i see it your queens weren't much better than the pack! i could sit here and tell you we lost running backs, wide receivers to injurys but i know how that goes with you viking cats!! I need to go, just got off the phone with my brother and put a 33" walleye in the boat this morning! fishing, way more important than football... smile.gif

At least the vikings were over .500 last year. I was surprised too see the vikings had 2 monday night games also but at least they were over .500 last year, a person can make some reasoning with that. But the packers, they were rotten and have done nothing in the offseason too make improvements. There is no good reason for them too have 2 monday night games. Another surprise, we got through almost 2 full days of packer/viking discussion on a thread before the old "how many superbowls have the vikings won" standby arguement came in lol. How that has anything too do with the monday night games this year i have not a clue. The relevance of that too this post is lost on me.

      ....is a City Park.  Land of Memories  with a lot of Minnesota and Blue Earth River shore access and I believe you can access the confluence of the rivers there as well.   Another attraction not really connected to fishing is Minneopa State Park with the falls on one side of the road and drive through buffalo herd area on the other.  Parks require a car window sticker for entrance.   Good Luck

      I like them when it's dead calm they seem to work great then. When it gets a little ripple on top not as effective but still learning with them. Thanks for the report jigginjim

      Anglers can play a role in a proposed fishing regulation change for northern pike on Lake Vermilion that would simplify northern pike regulations by bringing them in line with the new statewide zone regulation starting in May 2019.  Anyone who wants to ask questions and give input about the regulation proposal can attend an open house scheduled by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, at the Tower Civic Center, 402 Pine St., in Tower, Minn. Lake Vermilion northern pike are currently managed under a special regulation that requires all pike from 24 to 36 inches long to be released and only one fish over 36 inches is allowed in a three-fish possession limit. Under the northeast pike zone regulation, all fish from 30 to 40 inches long must be released and no more than one over 40 inches is allowed to be kept in a two fish possession limit. Spearers would be allowed to take any size pike but would be allowed only one fish over 26 inches in the two fish possession limit. “We are interested in the public’s preference about this because either regulation will help maintain the size of pike anglers enjoy on Lake Vermilion,” said Edie Evarts, Tower area fisheries supervisor. “Northern pike have done well and average size has increased under the special regulation that began in 2003. But a shift to the statewide zone regulation would simplify regulations while still protecting a portion of pike.” Public comment on the pike regulation can be submitted through Wednesday, Sept. 26. Questions or comments may be directed to the Tower area fisheries office, 650 Highway 169, Tower, MN 55790, by calling 218-300-7803, or emailing [email protected] Additionally, an open house about this proposal and other fishing regulations under review is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at the DNR Central Office, 500 Lafayette Road in St. Paul. Staff will take comments on this proposal and other fishing regulations under review around the state. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Bay Lake, near Deerwood in Crow Wing County. Last fall, a lakeshore owner reported finding the shell of a dead zebra mussel, but additional searches with DNR zebra mussel detection dogs could not confirm the presence of live specimens. Recently, a guest of another lakeshore owner reported finding a live specimen that a DNR invasive species specialist confirmed to be an adult zebra mussel. Additional water sampling showed the presence of veligers and in-lake searches confirmed a reproducing population of zebra mussels in Bay Lake. “Most of the new zebra mussel reports are brought to our attention by people who are out using Minnesota’s public waters in the summer months,” said DNR invasive species specialist Tim Plude. “We appreciate the vigilance of folks reporting them to the DNR, as well as the partnerships we have with lakeshore owners.” Signs at lake accesses have been updated to alert boaters to the presence of zebra mussels. Zebra mussels are transported over land by human activity, and lake users can prevent their spread. It’s an important reminder to follow the state’s invasive species laws:
      • Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species,
      • Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and
      • Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. The DNR also recommends boaters take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody:
      • Spray with high-pressure water.
      • Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees for at least two minutes or 140 degrees for at least 10 seconds).
      • Dry for leave least five days. When transporting water-related equipment such as boat lifts, docks, swim rafts or associated equipment, Minnesota law requires a 21-day drying time to destroy attached organisms, before placing that equipment in another lake. Zebra mussels are an invasive species that can compete with native species for food and habitat, cut the feet of swimmers, reduce the performance of boat motors, and cause expensive damage to water intake pipes. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS.

      PSU, Lindys, bobbers with leeches and crawlers. Trolling with cranks and spinners are now good also. Cliff

      Thanks everyone.  Will spinning gear hold up along the river? I have a couple heavier casting rigs i will bring to handle the cats(hopefully). Any tips on gear/lures/bait to have? Also, considering I am from very central MN, I have caught your usual species.  Any species in the river there, we/I could target that are not very prevalent here? Examples, goldeye, quillback, drum, ect.  less than common fish? Always looking for new fish to add to the list. Thanks again.

      I'll plan on being there.  Sounds like fun

      That park is Sibley Park.  Areas there for parking with a very short walk to the river.  Water is high i believe.  And plenty of areas for your family to enjoy as well, with a playground and picnicking areas.  I grew up in Mankato, a Scarlet from the class of '78.  40th reunion this year.  I will be in town on Saturday, driving my Mom around to visit family, graves, and places we have lived.  Good Luck!!!
