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

    • Enter Governor smith..   Non-elected by design.   She couldn't win an election for dog catcher, let alone Governor..   Did anyone really believe sickly mark dayton could/would finish his term ??    
    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Brit Hume is now a "Trump supporter" ??     Doh-Kay...    
    • Or..... The Russians.
    • Stay classy. 
    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
