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

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
