Man, I've never in my life wished I was in Fargo before. Took the Blue Angels to make that happen. Sigh.

I saw the Thunderbirds when I was about 12 and it was pretty much the most awesome thing ever.

Nice shot, please post some more pics after the weekend.

Saw the Blue Angels in Duluth last summer and was one of the highlights of the summer!

I've seen the Blue Angels in Fargo and it was an awesome show. This weekends weather forecast is for sunshine, should be ideal. One memory occurs early in the show when a solo jet streaks across the crowd at high speed. Impressive jet power.

I can't make it this year. Hope some of you will post pictures of what you see.

The Blue Angels are awesome, we're fortunate to see them every year in Seattle. They put on a terrific show, well worth seeing if you get a chance even if the weather isn't perfect.

Not everyone is a fan though, some of these people are pretty tired of them and their practice runs.

Maybe it's wishful thinking, but I think this pilot was looking right at me as he made his pass, we were in a boat on Lake Washington so I think it's possible...

Very tight crop:

Well the Fargo Air show has come and gone, and I have a terrible case of sunburn on my shooting eye. I guess, looking through my 100-400 into the sunny sky can do that to a guy when snapping 8 gigs worth of RAW images. Hard to follow some of those guys they are so darn fast. I will post more when My eye heals a bit. It hurts something feirce.

The sounds of jets is a missed sound up here in north Fargo. When we had the F-16's, it was a common sound. Even though these are Navy jets, it still makes a lot of north Fargoans stop and look up to hear the sound of a jet again. I didn't stick around town for the show, but I get a little bit of a sneak peak every year the show is in town since I work up at the base. The F-18 just happens to be my little sister's favorite of all the jets.

    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.
