Taking the kids fishing..

3 posts in this topic

My sister in law came up last week from New Mexico with her two daughters. The temps were kind of cool last week and not very good for hitting the lake but her oldest (6) wanted a ride on the boat. So we packed everybody up and headed down to a lake just down the road. At first we just cruised around the lake and the Girls loved it. The youngest loved hitting the waves and turning.

After a while the oldest one asked if we could fish for a little bit. I have fished this lake alot with my two little guys and it always seems like you can pick up a small slimer any time you want. I said sure so we threw out a line and did a little trolling. I told her that she more than likely would catch a fish. It didn't take long and bam.. Fish on. She got so excited she almost let go of the rod. After a little help and a lot of giggling and laughing she finally got it to the boat. It was about a 2 pound Northern. We got pics and sent the fish on his way. The rest of the days talk was about the fish and spending the day on the lake. I just figured I would share with you one the best days of fishing I have ever had.

And I didn't even wet a line...... wink

yeah it was really cool to see her catch a fish. Although I might have made my brother a little mad because she told him on the phone that night, "Dad, Uncle took me fishing this morning and I cought a fish right away. How come when we go fishing I never get anything and we fish all day"? grin I told her that there isn't as many fish in NM as in MN. Plus I might have told her that Uncle is a little better fisherman then her Dad.. grin

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
