Wow, what a performance by the Sioux this weekend. The gophers never really looked in sync, let's just hope that they get it straightened out in the next few weeks here or it could be an early exit in the playoffs. I guess the book is out, keep taking penalties, and wear down the top lines of the gophers.

I would have to disagree with the taking penalties being a good thing to do. If you keep taking penalties against the gophers it is only a matter of time before they score. The sioux played very physical this weekend, and that and their speed was the difference, in my opinion. And, of course goaltending was a key.

Hooks, tripping, and interferance calls were the silly penalties the Sioux took. Lucky for UND, goaltending and a few posts kept the goofs at bay. You do not want to go a man down to the gopher power play. And for sure, you do not go down two men or 4 on 3.

I must say the WCHA officiating is the worst I have ever seen. It is a disgrace. The best league in all of college hockey and the worst officals in all of college hockey. Both ways this weekend, the calls made little sense and players were diving all over the place to get these a$$clowns to make a call. A joke.

Sheppard needs to make some changes. The fighting rule is terrible. It is only a matter of time before teams get a fourth liner out there and have them jump the star player in a fight. Both players get suspended for fighting and one team loses a fourth liner and the other team loses a first liner. Sheppard picks his nose and the best he can do is fire Jeff Dubay? Come on Sheppard! You should fire yourself after what happened in the Denver-Gopher series.

They need to either let them fight and give them a five-minute major or have Sheppard take a look a the fight during the week and make a decision after reviewing what took place. Had Sheppard done this, Gordon would not have missed the Friday night game. I am not sure Sheppard has the sense to review the poor officiating, it might take him all week.

I am just sick of poor officals messing up a great game.

I heard them talking about it briefly on Friday (Dubay watching the game again as a fan) and I was wondering why he wasn't doing the broadcast. Thanks.

      How thick was the ice?   ....   can an ATV go out on the lake?    
      I'm gonna let you in on a secret that I discovered many years ago on a lake that had low numbers of very large Crappies. We all know that sunset is a time when Crappies become hungry and active. They seem to appear out of nowhere and after a half hour flurry of action, they disappear just as quickly. Often when fishing this lake I would get a bite or two if I was lucky. One night a friend and I were set up in my usual spot and right on time, we started catching fish. We ended up catching over a dozen 13.5"-15.75" Crappies that evening. About halfway through the action, as we realized we were doing much better than I ever had on that lake, my friend commented on the full moon. It was just peeking above the trees, and the beautiful sunset was on the opposite horizon. Not realizing what provoked that prolonged action, we both were eager to go back 4 days later. I got 1 fish, he had 1 bite, as was typical for the lake. Puzzled, we were talking about our last trip, and we came to the conclusion that the sunset and moonrise combo was the cause of the outstanding action. People talk about the full moon creating better activity "because the fish can see better". I am VERY convinced that is NOT the reason.  Musky fisherman know about the power that the moon has. With moon rise, moon set etc. being times when a big fish is more likely to strike.  Other fish like huge Crappies feel the power as well. When the moon is full, moon rise and sunset occur at about the same time. The combination of both high percentage times at once creates a MAGICAL window that occurs once per month.  Since then I have capitalized on this monthly occurrence many many times, for walleye, eelpout and musky as well as the crappies. It is way more than just a coincidence it is MAGIC!! Sometimes the days before and after the full moon are also excellent, occasionally 1 is even better than the full moon night. But any time you are planning a trip for a challenging species or difficult location try to be there at that magical period and you will improve your odds of success.  It doesn't matter if its cloudy and the moon is not visible the magic is still there. Hopefully you can unlock the potential of a lake with this little tip.    Remember that C.P.R. (Catch-Photo-Release) is key to catching bigger fish as well as the key to the future of fishing.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.
