Now, back to the important conversation of fishing and especially Walleye. Where have all the Northern WI, i.e., Eagle River area Walleye gone? Unless my fishing tactics have gone the way of the  betamax, there has been a marked decrease in numbers.
There are still a couple lakes in the Oneida/Vilas County are that are producing some walleye, although to be honest, I spent little to no time fishing them this winter/spring with how good the walleye bite was on the Winnebago system. 

With that said, just landed a 34 inch musky off the dock at 9:15 PM tonight fishing up by the in-laws just west of Rhinelander.  Caught it on a small bluegill!!!

We will look for the Walleye in 10 days when we head up to Eagle River.
Nice catch on the Musky, bluegill and crappie make for some good Musky bait.

You aren't the only fisherperson flummoxed by the missing walleyes in up-north lakes. Most theories I hear seem rooted in rising lake temperatures, which link to rising populations of warmer water species, which link to higher predation rates of walleye fry.

Yep, good luck to the Pointers, but I think they're in for a "rebuilding" season. There's talent on the roster -- might not be quite ready for prime time, though.

You mean those Dirty Bass!!
I saw a Minn Kota - Humminbird ad today. I donít imagine the advancements in fishing technology has helped our favorite fish either.

Congrats to Coach Breitbach and UWSP. I hope to see the program do well.

Door County is outstanding.
Each town is worth visiting w a whole bunch of restaurants and such.
Me- I love the fish boil. Pelletiers and White Gull Inn are two recommendations.
There is a golf course, I think Alpine, with an incredible par 3 hole.

I wonder if UWP will break through any time soon? 7 consecutive years with no more than 3 losses.
Are they too reliant on the passing game?
I think so. I think it especially hurts them in goal line situations when the defense doesnít have to concern itself with covering deep. Also, poor weather games tend to hurt teams reliant on the pass. And we are in Wisconsin, soooo...

Wouldn't the slant work well in that situation?   ;D

A rhetorical question for sure.


Actually, I think he was just being a smart a$$. But maybe that is a valid form of rhetoric. I guess I should hope it is!!

I didnít think he was being a wise guy at all. He simply asked a question that, as you know, requires no answer from me. The slant route is like fishing, milk duds, funny people, ESPN Classic Football games and happy children to name a few- they are good ALL the time.

WW I completely understand your point and logic regarding the Pats and all.
For me, itís just different. I can watch certain teams that pass more than they run and still see the physicality. Others, not so much.  Mt Union as an example. They pass a lot, but I still see the physicality. UWW passed a good amount the last two championship years yet they were very physical.

I think I see what you did there BW and I like it.

Despite the rules changes and advancement of the passing game, football is still a physical game. There are many moving parts and variables, but the emotional lifeblood is winning the physical battles.
Pass blocking doesnít generate the same rush as run blocking, for those on the field, on the sideline and in the stands.

In addition, ďPioneersĒ????

Only New England could stop a goal-line slant, likely credited to ongoing spy-gate practices.

Mt should move up to D1 in track.

Here are Lindy's and Street & Smith's preseason Top 20

Street & Smith is a new one to me, but they seem to have a better grasp on DIII football than Lindy's.

I dunno about that. The UWW omission is certainly arguable but at least has some basis given last season results. S&S leaving out Brockport, 13-1 last year, a loser only to UMHB in the semis, would appear to be far more egregious.

I believe Joe G is back for Brockport, hard to imagine they arenít top 20.
Iím surprised to see UWO at 2 in both. They lose so much from the great offense.
Iím anxious to see the D3 poll.

I identified 7 or 8 2016 HS graduates who appeared on the 2017 UWW roster as freshmen. In other words, kids who last played football in the 2015 season, took a season off, and therefore could be assumed to have greyshirted. Perhaps those are the walk-ons bw references.

The Lindy rankings are behind their pay wall. If anybody's got 'em, pls share where other WIACs have landed.

I see now, sorry for the confusion.
Honestly I donít know if 7-8 greyshirts is a lot, little or typical for UWW.
I guess it would be interesting to know if the number has changed significantly between coaches.

Digby broke a record in the 400m that was set in 1966 by the great Nate Hawthorne.

Then helps set a championship meet record running a 44.7 split chasing down the kid from Wesley in the anchor leg to win the 4x400 (and the team title).  I got goosebumps watching Digby pass him right at the finish then collapse to his knees.  That kid's will to win is incredible.

Awesome race and finish. UMU coming from behind again.
Congrats to the team.
