Okposo Staying!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

fishing tech

Kyle Okposo has decided to stay 1 more year and in my opinion he may just dominate the WCHA. This should help the Gophers this year. What are your thoughts????

I'll believe it when I see him on the ice.

I don't think he'll dominate.

North Dakota should be the favorite.

Personally I don't like him and wish he left. I think he plays too cocky and selfish. ND will be tough.

He didn't play with the same intensity the second half of last season. A guy with his speed and skill should be lighting it up.

Yah I think No Dak will be tough too. And most freshmen tail off in the second half, especially if they go to the world Jr championships in December.

what's with all the negatives? He was a freshman last year who put up good numbers, so why the put downs? I guess some of you think there is no time for development, it's kind of sad. I would hate to be your child. I personally am very happy he's staying. He's a great player that will help the gophs.

Man was Okposo impressive in the first half of last year! He made some plays as a freshman that most seniors couldn't dream of making. Anyone remember the Mankato State play? Teams were adjusting to him in the second half of last year and thus his lower #'s. If they keep some talent on his line, he should be a beast next year.

And I agree that ND is the team to beat next year, but the Goph's should make it interesting through the regular season.

Carman is going to miss the 1st 1/2 of the season. Won't play until the Dodge classic.

It is on the Gopher hockey website. Lucia announced it.

University of Minnesota men’s hockey head coach Don Lucia announced today that center Mike Carman (Apple Valley, Minn.) will not compete with the Golden Gophers for the first semester of the 2007-08 season. Carman, a freshman in 2006-07, will rejoin the Maroon and Gold at the 17th Annual Dodge Holiday Classic on Dec. 29-30, 2007.

Although he did try to do too much with the puck at times, I think Okposo was our best offensive threat last year. He's got size and skills, he just needs to learn when to use them. It's going to hurt to lose Carman for the first half of the season. I loved watching him and the whole third line out-hustle opposing lines.

Goligowski has left. Will anyone else leave???????? I thought after Pittsburgs free agent signings that the G man would have stayed 1 more year.

About the Mankato state play...........

He was lucky it went in. The goalie could have had it with the glove, but was too fast and missed it. Plus he was going top shelf and only got the puck a foot and a half off the ice!

I dunno. I still say it was the prettiest play I saw all year, and in my top 5 overall. Okay, maybe the shot by Wheeler in the playoffs also, but that was really lucky. That Okposo kid can really play and just ran out of gas after the world juniors.

I'm not a gopher fan either (UMD faithful), but am excited that he's coming back next year so I can watch him on the telecasts.

he does have talent, no question about that. he just got lucky on that particular goal. i hope he will just deke the goalie without doing the stick through the legs, cuz next time it will be poke checked and he will look dumb.

OK I can't beleive all you MN boys picking ND. All I can say is lets go GOPHERS. You should come to a game in Grand Forks and see what its like to wear Gophers colors to work and to the games, its a blast.

Talent.....Don't get that confused with luck. To be able to do that he must have PRACTICED it many many times, and then to break it out in a game......unbelievable.

Only downside is now all my 8-10 year old kids are messing around with stuff like that.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      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!   
    • Bryan P
      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. 😁
