Good to see you here, Chad. Also nice to see what your career will be. Responsible law enforcement officers who are dedicated to protecting the resources and use good judgment are always needed. It was a career I considered carefully myself, but was too selfish in the end. COs spend WAY more time pursuing the violators of game and fish laws than enjoying the pursuit of game and fish.

Welcome. grin.gif

Are you also a VCC football jock?

Oh come on Steve, cool.gif

Other than the Junior College players being bigger, faster, stronger, far greater skills, and meaner, it's exactly like high school football! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

you are definately correct. i thought it was going to be a lot like high school too or hoped it would be. much stiffer competetion and bigger faster players who love to play. definately a step up from high school.

I guess you all took me pretty literal. Until I reread the comment asking if he played football, i took it as someone boasting that they were a junior college football player, and i thought it was funny, just because its a junior college. So i made the comment about high school football only because its not like division 1,2,or 3 college football. What I am familiar with and who I know has made junior college collegiate programs were just above average high school players. Sorry for the whole comparison scenario. I am sure you are a talented football player. Far better than me, Im just a basketball player, ha ha, can't take a hit. So anyways, all done with the sports blogs, and onto the topic at hand.

There are a lot of guys playing CC sports that could play D1,2 and 3 football. Most of them didnt have the grades to get a better scholarship.

Mn. doesnt have CC scholarships but in many states they do. I have played against a lot of guys with the abilty to play D-1 or D-2 but didnt prioritize the schoolwork.

In Mn. CC sports arent as good as in other states but still better athletes than high schools.

I played at Fergus Falls CC (B-Ball) way back in 85 for a year then went to UMD and UWS. I had guys at FF that would have easily made the starting line up for any team in either league. The WIAC is tuff. Enough said.

Hey whens the WALLEYE opener anyways? Posts like this wont be seen come opener.

there are quite a few guys who are going to play at a higher level next year that i played with this year. Most of the guys came to vermilion to play football. me and very few others played just because we could. my original intent in going here was for my degree and sports second. a lot of these guys were inner city boys who never had lived in a small town in the middle of the wilderness. these are guys that have never seen frogs and snakes before and were freaking out about them the first weeks of practice. Also didnt understand how cold it got here and never experienced walking on a frozen lake before.

walleye opener is in just a little over 6 weeks. too bad school is done 3 days before that and have to go home to southern minnesota before

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
