Kvd, he'll be throwing a shallow running crank and rolling a spinnerbait all the way to victory lane.

I will agree that it is hard to vote against KVD but Kelly Jordan might be money this year!!!

Don't count out the Hack Attack. It would be cool to see Clunn do well running an aluminum boat too.

KVD is tough to beat knowing how the guy fishes and the lake there at!

I think Hackney has a shot as well!

I might be eating these words in a few days but i would be really surprised to see Hackney on the top at this classic. Yes i know he is a local guy but he just hasn't been on this game for a while smile

Last year the T.V. coverage was not as good as the year before. Hope its better this year.

Hackney hasn't been fishing too bad lately. He was part of the team that won the PAA corporate cup last fall and he also won the FLW east-west fish-off on falcon lake recently. If anything, I'd say he's coming into the event with confidence in how he's been fishing

Derek didnt make the classic this year. I am going with Edwin Evers, I dont know why, I just think he is due to win the big one.

I'd like to see Faircloth do well. He's a great fisherman as well. I think this will be a great Classic. It seems that the Red River will be in great shape for the anglers to do some serious damage. I guess there have been already some big bags coming out of there so far in local tournaments.

My pick goes to Bill Lowen. Flipper that is great when the field fishes small and for very few bites which is what it sounds like day two and three could be. Did really well last year on Old Hickory making 20 to 30 pitches to the same lay down. WOW! I don't have that kind of patience.

Edwin Evers would be great but with the birth of his child today his head could be spinning.

    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
