Foles won't be cheap. You'd need to trade for him AND pay him.

I'm not 100% sold on any of the QB's out there, they all come with their own risk. The more I think about it the more I think putting the franchise tag on Keenum and letting him prove himself for another year might be the right move. It buys you some time before having to go all in on him. In the meantime they should be looking at the draft for their QB of the future.

The only reason any of the free agent QB's are on the market is because they come with risk and are all unproven in some capacity. Cousins is the most proven but he still hasn't shown he's a true franchise guy that will be worth what he's undoubtedly going to get paid.

I alarm mine since it has a 12vdc battery like your car. Buy a car alarm and put the siren and a light beacon on top. Then everyone will hear and see something is going on.
You spend 20k or more on a fish house makes no sense not to protect it. Your insurance might cut you a break too.


Do you live on the lake you keep your house on? If the alarm goes off don't you need to go out and disarm it for it to shut off? If you're not within eyesight or hearing distance of the house that alarm could be going off for a long time before you make your next trip out to the house.

Why is it always guys from Ohio? Seems like any time there is a big fish poaching case or any type of investigation its always guys from Ohio.

Interesting timing of this though since my buddy and I were just talking about how these ice fishing tournaments are largely on the honor system. The smaller tournaments have almost no way of keeping people honest.

I've been saying the same thing about Brady for years. There is no denying that he's a great QB and he has to get the credit for winning 5 Super Bowls once he's there but I can't imagine anyone having had an easier road to get there than he has.

He's played in 29 playoffs games not including the Super Bowls and he's only been on the road for 7 of them and only 2 road playoff games in the last 10 years (he lost both of them).

The Patriots have been huge benefactors from playing in such a lousy division which gives them a big boost in earning home field advantage in the playoffs and overall the AFC hasn't been nearly as good top to bottom. Without that benefit I'm sure the Pats would have many more playoff loses and far fewer titles.

My posts for this thread have been on the side of supporting the resorts for the hard work they put in.

But in support of Twisted's argument. About 10 years back I rented a sleeper house on Red, the entire experience was great, first time sleeper rental, even the 2'-3' wave the lifted our shack at 2am was exciting. The day we were packing up to leave, it was -10 with 30 mph winds and we had received 4-6" of snow over night, so drift city. Well, no the drive in we found out what the wave was caused from, an ice heave collapsed, blocking the road and had drifted full. We followed another truck parallel to the heave a few hundred yards to another road, where they had put in a bridge across the heave. That resort was charging every vehicle that wanted to cross $20. One guy just drove over it, and the guy collecting took off after him, so we just drove over, pulled off the road a bit, setup with our portable and fished for a while. Caught our limit of Walleye in about 1 hour, and watched this guy charge a couple of hundred vehicles to cross his bridge.

Now I don't know the rules about bridges on lakes, I assume it is the same as the road, where it is on public property and therefore not private. But this guy profited greatly taking advantage of a bad situation for the people he was fleecing. So I have seen it. That said, there was still no other way to get off the lake for these people.


I suppose he was charging people to use his personal property which is his bridge material but that could probably be argued. Either way its still a D move on his part to charge $20 a vehicle to allow people off the lake.

There is more than one resort on the big destination lakes that are pretty cut throat. I've heard many stories of resort trucks plowing people in that used a public access to access the resort roads. Ive heard stories of resort trucks essentially bullying people for using "their" part of the lake. I've also heard of resort trucks plowing a public access to block it from being used to force everyone to use their paid access. There are a lot of good people running good resorts but there are some that are also run by complete D-bags.

True,always two sides,but isn't ironic the tribe pulled the pin once the building was done? even the entertainers were booked.


Not sure the timing means anything. I'm sure the tribe would have loved to have a full venue of people coming to the casino this weekend. It would have likely meant a lot more money for them. Instead they are going to have to compete for business against all of the other activities going on this weekend that don't require a 30-45 minute drive out of the city.

What would they have to gain from shutting the concert/event down?

We'll have to wait to hear both sides. On the surface it doesn't add up that the tribe would shut things down for no reason.

Was on LOW a few weeks ago and was just sitting there jigging when all of a sudden the float on the Vex starts to go under. It wasn't a quick or violent jerk it just slowly gets pulled under maybe 5-6 inches. It went down the same as our bobbers where when a walleye would hit. My buddy and I were looking at it like what the heck is going on. After being down several seconds it pops back up. I checked the transducer but didn't see any marks. I had heard about pike hitting transducers before and I've seen pike do enough weird stuff over the years to know its possible but the way it went down didn't immediately make me think a pike. Best i can figure is that it was just a lazy pike that nonchalantly grabbed it as it swam by versus striking it like they typically would. Still a bit of a mystery.

There are 2 sides to every story. I'm sure someone breached the contract and the courts will figure out who. No sense to rush to judgment based on only bits on information from one side.

Car/truck/suv usually seems to be the same but if you're towing a wheelhouse they usually seem to charge more.

Some may also charge per day or per weekend. If you're going to be out there for 3 days they may want you to pay 3 days worth of passes.

Call and check and also ask what is included in your road pass. Do they plow a spot for you? Will the be available if you need a jump?

Won't be their decision .


Then whose decision is it? Guess i'm struggling to see why resorts would stop plowing roads since doing so is beneficial to them in many ways.
