There is not a lot of NHL talk on here, but I see he got 100 points for the season already last night.

Is this the second coming of the Great Gretzky? Personally I don't think he will keep up the pace to break all of Gretzky's records, but he will for records at the beginning of a career or records by a certain age.

Your thoughts please.

He is real good but he's no 99.

I would assume the Great ones stats are way better comparing stats year by year and I can guarantee Crosby will not have 92 goals and 120 assist in his 3rd season in the NHL.

Pittsburg is improving and has some of the best young talent in the league. Crosby already plays more physical then the Great one ever did. He will be fun to watch for a long time I hope.

There is potential for him to scratch the itch of a few of those records but I don't know if the physical play of what the game is now will allow him to do what Gretzky was able to do. Mario Lemieux had the last legitimate chance to shatter every Gretzky record out there until health problems got the best of him.

Definitely a different game now and much tougher to score.

Crosby may become the best player of all time but I don't see him breaking too many if any of Grezty records.

Crosby is amazing and has a chance to break some records but noway is he going to get 200+ points in a season...I think he may play longer than Gretzky did and they may attribute to record chances....But the players are inches and pounds larger than what they were in the 80s.

not only are the players bigger and faster now, the goaltending is also at a much higher level. if you look at some old gretzky footage you will see what I mean. Crosby is the modern day gretzky.

No doubt about it. Fun player to watch.

I sure do miss Lemieux though.

      I saw the guy who bought our cabin, Ryan Aker, came in 4th. A couple of 7lb fish and i thought i saw a team with a 10lb fish also. Shhhhhh, the shallow is a secret. We fish quite often in 5' or less, Often watching the guides out on the sandy flats from a far

      Last year my family and I were just landing our boat off the hoodoo point access and someone from here recognized my pike master boat and daughter from pictures i shared the year before. He suggested going to some underwater rock formation north of Ely island where he said he did well with jigging raps, which I just so happened to obtain a collection of over the past year or so. We marked a ton of fish in the 26' depth range but could not get those to bite for our life and ended up resorting to old tactics much shallower. I have watched videos of Linders and other anglers doing well with them but have yet to have that same luck. Had a giant on Minnetonka on a jigging rap but ended up getting off before showing itself. So, ill strongly second this on making the jigging rap work this year. On another note these spot lock and conture following features coming out with the new trolling motors is a true game changer. We pulled of on a family favorite spot on a windy day and had a hard time staying on position with my dads old trolling motor. A guy pulled up and had no problem staying were we wanted to be, going to have to be one of the upgrades on the next boat.

      Over the winter, my family acquired some snorkel gear. I know that Vermilion isn't a great lake for clarity, and certainly my bay is at the bottom of the list. However, are there areas of the lake that have decent clarity?

      Welcome to the forum Dave38.  More then likely the tab like the others have said. Did you do anything to the boat to change the weight around like add a live well or battery in different spots?  Is it a wheel or tiller?

      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.
    • PRO-V
      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.
