Drew! Nice fish, but buddy -- every time I turn around, you're passing me up by a couple points! Seriously though, you're on fire this year. Good job on the hogs! Getting 3 fish over 30 rocks, and just think, it's still not even July! You might have your own "safari" page before long!

Too bad for me that I wussed out last night and stayed home! I'm kicking myself now. I was actually in bed before you texted about your fish, earliest I've seen bed in a couple months I think!

I'm re-charged now though, look out leaders, here I come!

Thanks boys! She fought like a true champ too...then it took about 20 minutes to revive her and get her to swim off on her own. she had me worried for a little bit there

every time I turn around, you're passing me up by a couple points!

You didnt think I was going to let you stay in front of me for too long did you? wink

Dark, why do you want it to go down? I suppose it's better for shore fishin?

I'm stoked with it where it's at, can drive anywhere prolly up to Mankato if I wanted to with my boat.

I love this high water but yes, for shore fisherman it might be a pain.

Dark, anytime you want to go out in the boat, shoot me an e-mail and we will go out.

I've been getting a few walleyes with the high water but for mudeyes, I really need to make the best of the time I have available....seems like theres always something....like this weekend I got roped into being Dennis Steeles best man when he says the big "I DO" down on some sand bar south of Alma (just kidding) I wish him the best and I can see he is happy! I really don't enjoy sitting in a boat for half the night anymore anyway so spending a few hours off the bank at a proven spot works just fine for me.....just a few more feet and a little more time is all I need grin

Get rid of this high water. I would like to see it drop and let the fish set up some summer patterns. Creeks are fun but they get old, and everyone fishes the heck out of them.

sounds like someone is getting cranky for not being able to fully utilize his jet boat.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
