05/02/2018 - 4:23pm One of my greatest fishing

One of my greatest fishing memories is going to Lake of the Woods with my dad, uncle and cousins. Phenomenal fishing for walleye, perch, pike, and musky. 100 fish days were not uncommon. I can still remember my cousin casting a buzzbait next to a downed tree along the shore and watching a 50+" musky follow it all the way to the boat before disappearing.

05/02/2018 - 1:00pm Alaska is definitely on the

Alaska is definitely on the bucket list. Something so intriguing about driving out from your back yard, dropping a shrimp pot then go fishing for halibut. Not to mention the scenery.

Are you a member of the Big Weenie Brand? We use your meat rigs for salmon all the time, great product!

05/02/2018 - 12:06pm I havent done much fishing

I havent done much fishing since the ice left on Saginaw Bay. Went out once on the Saginaw River before walleye season closed. Ice fishing was hit and miss. First ice was okay then mid winter sucked. Fishing for perch was getting really good right at the end and then those consecutive days of 60 degree temps and monsoon rain in February ruined the last ice fishing.

I went sucker spearing last night. It took a while to find the fish and when we did there werent many but it was a beautiful night to be out.

I did my first stream trout fishing last summer in the UP and now I'm hooked! With a little one coming in June, I am not sure if I will get back up there this year but I'm definitely looking forward to when I can.

Other summer fishing includes walleye fishing on the Bay and salmon fishing on Lake Michigan. Nothing better than watching a dipsy rod dancing with a King salmon on the end of it!

If you're into fishing be sure to take a rod along. There is a good chance that the majority of streams you cross heading west towards Munising (there will be lots) will have brook trout in them. Regular old hook and worm will do the trick as will small Mepp's spinners.

We camped in Munising and Tahquamenon for a week last August, great time. Was able to catch brook trout and splake in the streams, saw most of the water falls in Munising, and even jumped off the rock cliffs into Lake Superior at Miners Beach.

If anyone is at Tahquamenon Falls in early to mid August, take CO-500 north and stop off on one of the various two-tracks that split off the road. Wild blueberries EVERYWHERE!

We put 8 nice Lake Huron walleye in the boat yesterday. First time fishing there so it took a bit to figure out what they wanted. Heading to the UP to chase brook trout in August. Very excited for that trip as I have never caught a stream trout.

06/22/2017 - 10:00pm Great for DJ! New Bucks GM

Great for DJ! New Bucks GM Jon Horst grew up about 30 minutes from me. Our high schools were in the same conference and we played each other every year. Many around the league were surprised at his hire. Hope he does well, they have a solid nucleus to build around.

I read on another site that there was roughly 7 (fictional) years between where they are at right now with Saul and the start Breaking Bad. Not sure how true that is, I didn't bother to put the clues together myself, but I hope so. Love the show. More Mike and Gus, though.

04/23/2017 - 10:17pm Ice fishing is my favorite. I

Ice fishing is my favorite. I really enjoy sight fishing through the ice for walleye, pike and perch on Saginaw Bay. Just sometihng about being able to actually watch the fish come in and interact with your bait/lure.

Fishing for King salmon is a blast but our favorite port of Frankfort has gone downhill the past few years. As of now, we wont be going this year but hope to return if the fishing improves.

I have been looking at buying a boat, just havent found the right one. Debaiting between an 18-20' boat that I can take out on Saginaw Bay or a smaller 16-17' that I can take on the rivers and inland lakes. Decisions, decisions...

03/09/2017 - 10:45am Lost power at home sometime

Lost power at home sometime yesterday afternoon. By the time I got home from work the basement was flooded with about 3" of water. Borrowed a generator and got the sump running again and drained the water. By 8pm power was back on so we spend the next few hours cleaning and throwing stuff out. Luckily, it wasnt too bad. No electronics were lost and the majority of stuff that did get wet will dry out.

Got to office this morning and no power. Have the generator going and are able to fire up one computer and take turns checking emails. Phones are down also.

Last Saturday was a clear black night, a clear white moon, Harris and Perry were on the streets, trying to consume.

08/02/2016 - 1:01pm Fishing/boating, hunting,

Fishing/boating, hunting, playing basketball, gardening and camping. Basically, I enjoy being on the water or in the woods. I also have three vegetable gardens (may have over done myself) this year, one at my house, one at my dad's and one at the fiancee's parents.

Heading to Frankfort this weekend to camp and salmon fish for a week. I've pretty much already checked out at work....hence why I am on here.

Does anyone who know the starting pitchers for both sides will be? My cousin is a starting pitcher for State. Hope he does well but not well enough to earn the win. Go Blue!

12/31/2015 - 10:38am Sales job but office is

Sales job but office is closing at 12:30 pm so I can't complain too much. Normally these days around Christmas and New Year are pretty slow but these last few days have been slammed.

12/29/2015 - 2:35pm Won my league, going 11-4 to

Won my league, going 11-4 to finish as #2 seed and cruising through the playoffs. Went WR heavy, taking DT and Julio in first two rounds then adding A-Rob and John Brown later on. Julio and A-Rob carried my team. Adding Rawls and David Johnson late didnt hurt either. Had to scramble a bit after Rawls and Yeldon went down but was able to pick up Karlos Williams and Mike Gilislee. 

Already planning my draft for next year!

12/27/2015 - 11:57am RB2 help

Pick 1 from the following: Karlos Williams, Mike Gillislee, Frank Gore.

1/2 point PPR.

12/16/2015 - 12:14pm I lost

I lost Dalton, Rawls and Yeldon (albeit temporarily) last week. The guy Im playing snagged Denard off waiver last night (damn you reverse waiver order rules). I picked up Brown and Bolden as insurance.

Luckily I still have Big Ben at QB, though I dont particularly like his matchup this week against Denver. Debating on dropping Danny Woodhead and picking up Fitzmagic, Winston or Mariota.

10/25/2015 - 9:04am Pick 2: Allen Robinson, John

Pick 2: Allen Robinson, John Brown or Danny Woodhead?

10/11/2015 - 12:29pm Allen Robinson or Danny

Allen Robinson or Danny Woodhead at flex?

09/27/2015 - 11:34am Just found out that JAX has 2

Just found out that JAX has 2 lineman expected to be out, including their LT. Does that change your answer? Bortles may be running for his life all day.

 

09/27/2015 - 11:26am Who would you start at flex:

Who would you start at flex: Woodhead, Allen Robinson, Yeldon, John Brown or Stevie Johnson?

This is becoming a weekly battle for me. All are capable of putting up good numbers. Leaning towards Robinson, the JAGs will likely be playing catchup all day.

Starting RB's are Forsett and Gore. WR's are DT and Julio. Half point PPR.

09/13/2015 - 10:50am Brown

Brown

09/13/2015 - 10:41am Pick 1 for flex: Allen

Pick 1 for flex: Allen Robinson, Agholor, Yeldon, John Brown or Woodhead. Half point PPR. Leaning towards A-Rob due to number of targets.

Also, Rams (vs Seattle) or Panthers (at Jax).

08/23/2015 - 9:31pm Our league just had our live

Our league just had our live draft Friday. It was the only date where all 10 of us could make it work. Last year's champ drafted Jordy with his first round pick. Even though the rest of us are enjoying in his misery, I'll be a big advacate for not drafting until right before the rest begins next year.

I'll be out and about on  Houghton Lake this weekend as well. Fishing Friday morning then boating and drinking the rest of the weekend.

I went to Mayville. We've been pretty terrible at football ever since time began. Only 2 winning seasons since '87 and around 10 total since 1950.

1. The Wire

2. Breaking Bad

3. Sopranos

4. Justified

5. Sons of Anarchy

I threw Sons on there to round out my 5. However, I believe True Detective will easily take it over but it needs to run a few seasons first. The Wire had the single greatest TV season in my eyes with Season 4 and the Corner Boys.

Butler did play that year, at least in the semi's and finals he did. Scored nine points and grabbed seven rebounds in the semi's against Wyoming Park/Neitzel.

04/16/2015 - 1:32pm If I remember correctly,

If I remember correctly, Renaissance finished that year undefeated and ranked third in the nation. Pretty impressive squad. Neitzel put on a show in the semi's that year and still couldnt top Renaissance.

03/25/2015 - 2:57pm Per sources.

I will believe the Robinson hype when I see it on the court. The jump from DIII to Big 10 hoops is huge.

08/29/2014 - 10:12am Saginaw High has really

Saginaw High has really declined in enrollment the last few years. They have 667 kids now, down from nearly 1,100 in 2007. They lost to Vassar, a decent Class C school with 350 kids, in their season opener last night 58-14. Going to be a long year when they still have to play the likes of Mt Pleasant, Dow, Flint Powers, etc.

01/14/2014 - 8:03pm Glad to hear everything went

Glad to hear everything went well. My father had the sixtuple (is that a word?) bypass surgery a few years back. Still remember it well, realizing how close he was to having a heart attack (all were 70% or more blocked). Best of luck on your recovery!

06/06/2013 - 1:50pm I was out in Cali in April

I was out in Cali in April and asked a waitress where the nearest party store was. After asking her coworkers, she said there was a Costco nearby where I could get party supplies like cups, balloons, etc.

That was very nice of her, but I just wanted booze.

03/31/2013 - 6:29pm The reactions of the players

The reactions of the players from both teams and the coaches was truly heartbreaking.

Had this same injury happen right in front of me playing basketball in high school. An opponent jumped for a rebound and when he landed his leg snapped in half, bone protruding. I immediately looked at their bench and waved for someone to come over. Back in our huddle a couple teammates were fighting off the urge to vomit. Something I'll never forget.

03/25/2013 - 4:18pm List of some of the in-state

List of some of the in-state talent that has escaped Tubby since he took over:

2008: Jared Berggren (Wisc); Jordan Taylor (Wisc)

2009: Mike Bruesewitz (Wisc); Trent Lockett (Arizona St.). Also Royce White ('09 Mr. Basketball) committed to Minnesota then transferred to Iowa St before ever playing for the Gophers. *Other lightly recruited players in this class include Ethan Wragge (Creighton) and Mike Muscala (Bucknell).

2010: Kevin Noreen (West Virginia, '10 Mr. Basketball)

2011: Shelby Moats (Vanderbilt); Ross Travis (Penn St.). Other than current Gopher Joe Coleman, there was nobody really of note that year.

2012: Mr. Basketball Siyani Chambers (Harvard) was only a 3* according to Scout. His other offers were CMU and Nebraska.

2013: Similar to 2012. 3* Riley Dearring is going to Wisconsin but his other offers were Drake, Illinois St. and Northeastern.

2014: Five-stars Tyus Jones and Rashad Vaughn are two of the top players in the country with offers from all the traditional powers.

Aside from a few players, Tubby really hasnt missed out on much talent because, well, there wasnt much talent to begin with, particularly 2010-2013.
