some tough decisions we had quite a bit of talent and depth out there...it's always nice to have tough decisions thats mean you have some good players.

the players i was happy to see make the team were asher allen, reynaud, young, and onatolu...and of course percy.

asher looked pretty good out there this preseason,looked like he was a starter out there playing with 2nd and 3rd stringers...reynaud had some nice plays at wr and special teams...young looked shifty and solid, never know if peterson or taylor go down for awhile it's nice to have a guy that might be able to come in and make a big play.

onatolu looked like a special teams guru out there...almost every kickoff you heard his name...we need that...on that note i think our special teams have played real good...that will be huge for us not giving up a bunch of free points or letting teams start at mid field all the time like last season.

percy looked good except for that dropped TD....but he made some nice catches in traffic and broke some tackles...he gets good seperation on routes he should be real good this season...he looked fast and fluent on his kickoff returns...i could see him breaking a few of those this year.

They definitely had some tough decisions. But I don't think they'll miss anyone that they cut. I think the biggest question mark for this team is how quickly the offensive line can gel. Anytime you have 40% turnover on the line, there's a transition period. Hopefully it doesn't take too long and this team can get on a roll. Should be a fun season.

I think you nailed it with the o-line needing to gel. I certainly hope they come together and can eliminate the penalties. Penalties kill us every year.

Reynaud will be the big suprise this year on offense/special teams and Onatolu will be a monster on special-teams. Congrats to Cooper for making the team as an undrafted free agent and backing up Sullivan. Should be a great year...can't wait to see them get it started!!

Cooper's on the practice squad. They picked up some guy from Denver (I believe) to back up Sullivan.

i thought sully was real solid this preseason personally...not many mistakes at all from him and i seen him put some big blocks out there and even did some pulling and got up into the second level.

loadholt played ok...he seemed solid until later in the games when he started to struggle against speed...he needs to get his legs under him for the long haul.

overall i think the o-line looked pretty solid...of course there is work to be done but they looked solid i thought.

    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘  
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!  But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.  I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.  Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.    I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.  I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.  It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.  Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!  No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!  That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering.   Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.  I sat there for a few minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!  I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!    What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that runs through my mind but the northern as cool as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know how massive it was, makes it "easier" to deal with. 
    • Sorry for the delayed response.    Checked in at the Lac Seul Resort on Wednesday, June 6, and checked out on Monday, June 11. Anticipating our usual needs, I preordered 200 dozen minnows and a pound of leeches from KA Sports & Tackle in Dryden for 10 guys to fish for 4-1/2 days.    This was the first time in 20 years that we actually had bait left over at the end. I gave away about 30 dozen minnows to a neighboring cabin because they didn't have any.    We found the morning bite to be slow for some reason but the evening bite was better. Most activity was found in moving water on the English River. On Friday evening another guy and myself went to Pelican Rapids and from 6:00pm till about 9:30pm we figured we boated over 200 walleyes and a few northnerns. Unfortunately, they were all between 15" - 17" in length and we were looking for the 17" - 18" size for the freezer. That's always our goal for fish we intend to take home.    The following night we went back and although the fish weren't biting quite as fast they were larger. Over the same time frame we figured we only boated about 100 walleyes but the size ranged more in the 17" - 22" size.    Overall we had a few walleyes caught in the 25" - 28" range with the largest of the week at 28.25". Northern pike were active with many caught in the 31" - 34" range. Didn't boat any in the 40" range as we usually do but those lower 30-inchers sure put up a fight.    Also found a few nice smallies and whitefish as usual.    Most fish were found in the 10' - 14' depth range, which was unusual compared to previous years when we caught them in shallow water along the shorelines.    Great weather with steady winds out of the southerly directions, which is what we always hope for but never get and nobody got hurt. Another successful year for us.
