My week at GEM kids fishing camp! 7/6-10

3 posts in this topic

I got to spend a week up fishing with the GEM kids. fishing was great, lots of bass, crappies, rockbass, and pike were willing to make a kids day! Most of the fish were caught on plastic worms, tubes, and flukes, some kids tried some live bait but soon found plastics worked even better. We had some pretty rowdy kids this week, Dave did a great job keeping order so i could get down to the business of getting kids on the best bite. Mitch came and helped out too when dave had to leave a day early.

I have tons of pics up at the GEM kids blog

kisha was just jigging for sunfish over the side of the boat, I was watching when the big bass came from under the boat and ate the plastic crappie minnow she was using! I told her to lift the rod and hold on! the battle was successful!

You do good things with those kids. You're great for taking them out and putting smiles on their faces.

    • 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!
