Because I've got so many toys ie boats, fish houses, rods, reels, baits, and gadgets and all of them have a story to tell.

I don't know why this didn't post on the 12th like I had it scheduled to do. It's here now. Snow kept me from going up to February meeting when the final tournament schedule was hashed out. The only change that was made from last month's...Show More Summary
Sorry that I don't keep on top of blogging about this kind of stuff like I would of in the past. Two weeks ago at the first FLW Tour event at Lake Okeechobee on the first day of competition MN Pro Andy Young was injured in a boating accident. Show More Summary

The Vikings kicked a field goal to go ahead in the game 23-21, but I was not a happy camper. Too much time left on the clock for Drew Brees to drive into field goal range. I thought maybe we had dem Saints on 4th and 10, but Brees made the play; Saints first down in field goal range. Show More Summary
The Vikings D is healthy and was played lights out at the end of the season. The O has shown the ability to move the sticks and score points all year. I really like our chances vs. Brees and the Saints in the "House of Pain"(©Paul Allen). Show More Summary

40 walleyes caught total in 2017, so it was a good year for me catching ole marble eyes. My goal for the year was 30. Grass Pig led the way with 10 fish, followed by the Rippin Rap with 8 fish and the Jerk Shad with 6 fish. I think I will up my goal for 2018 to 40 walleyes.It was a banner year for pike with 798 fish caught. Show More Summary

It's official #12 has been shut down for the season after the Dirty Birds erased Green Bays playoff hopes. So Rodgers has been leading the Green and Gold for 10 years now. Packers 5 Division Titles, Vikings 4 Division Titles in that time. Show More Summary
The news that Pat Elflein wasn't playing versus the Panthers was a gut punch I didn't need right before kick off. I hadn't heard he was injured and might not play. Rookie Center Elflein is a huge reason why the Vikings offense has been so good and balanced. Show More Summary
I didn't Vikings blog last week because I thought the Vikes had a more than even chance of losing the game to those Dirty Birds. The D stepped up big time and Case was good enough yet again to get the victory. Another minor upset last week, in my opinion, was the Sea Chickens beating the Eagles. Show More Summary
Thanks to Facebook's "On This Day" feature I was reminded of a blog I did answering this same question posed by Wired2Fish back in 2010. So I thought I'd do it again for this year. There were a lot of great moments for me to choose from in 2017. Show More Summary

Think I should have gone with a size 10, oh well. Trying them out on the ice gave me the motivation to finally get my act together. Show More Summary
For all the memories made this summer with Todd and the girls
The national media all seem to be on the "Case Train" with the win over the Rams last Sunday. In the Teddy vs. Case debates that took place prior to Sunday, I was pretty solidly in "Camp Case." The guy has performed well and deserves to be the Vikings starting QB for now. Show More Summary
