Take Me Fishing!!!!!

18 posts in this topic

First I would like to say Happy Fathers Day to everyone that applies to... wink

This was the first Fathers Day weekend I got to spend with my daughter in the last 3 years and I have enjoyed every minute of it. Seamed like we were busy and have had someplace to be almost every minute of the weekend. And since my Grandparents are on their way to have dinner and watch the race this afternoon, Saturday was "Dads day".

So imagine my suprise when at 6:30 on Saturday morning I hear a little wispery voice... "dad..... daaaadddd...." "what goose?" "...(giggling).. Take Me Fishing!!!!!" grinlaugh That brings a smile to a guys face.

It was her first outing of the year, and her first in the "new" boat and we had a BLAST!!! She used the rod and real I used when I was a kid so she could "be like dad". I told her she could have it when she got bigger and could cast it. This year she did. She casted out her own lines, and reeled in her own fish. We have an up and comer.

I know what you mean, my son is at his moms ranch in se az right now. I was very lucky to be able to go for 2 wks earlier in the month. I do get to see him each week however he is at the age where we can go do things and enjoy it. I do miss him but wish everyone a happy fathers day.

That's an awesome story NG. I had to work 12 hours today, and was thinking how nice it would be to have my Daughter fish with me agian. She was always my fishin' buddy growin' up, and now she is 23. Last time I fished with her was probably 5 years ago up at Sag. We caught one fish that hot, windless, cloudless day. A 10 and a half pound Walleye that she reeled in. Priceless. I hope all Father's, and Mother's for that matter, had a good one. Junky.......

Great story and photos. My daughters called me and that was satisfying. I just have to wait for my grandsons to get old enough to go fishing.

She's into it. Sometimes I think she likes the boat ride and the treats better than the fishing. You can see the cookie scraps laying on the side of the boat in the picture.

GO FAST DADDY!!!! Was her favorite fraze on Saturday.

She was happy when I came home with the "new" boat, but she cried when I sold the old one. I was not going to force her to fish, I would rather she want to do it. The attention span is a little short, only a couple three hours, so it is a find the fish and fish type deal, but she is 5, so that will get better.

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
