Mom Outfished Me!

Recommended Posts

I couldn't be more proud.

She's 79 and loves to fish walleyes.

I took her once years ago. I love to tell the story that I took my Mom fishing once and she outfished me. The moral of the story? I took my Mom fishing ONCE.

Now we have lot's of opportunities to fish together and I cherish every one.


On this morning she caught the first, the biggest and the most. Gotta love it.

truly awesome!

my mother loved to fish...and yes, there were times she put everyone to shame. not sure how this happens; however, she has now passed this ability to out fish me on to my daughter...he he.

we lost mom roughly two years ago to diabetes. the last lake i had her on with my dad, we now refer to as 'Grandma's Lake'.

thanks for sharing, and tell your mother...Way to go, and keep it up!

Thats typically what happens when I fish with Borch, he always beats me by a fish or two. Last time out I was ahead by a fish and before the night was over, he beat me by 3-4 eyes.

Nice to see you out with your mother.

My Mom was a hardcore fisherwoman...she out fished me a lot...more often than not in fact.

Yet...that's motivation to pay attention and see what she was up to...and in the end..that was it...she really was tuned in when fishing...she was always paying attention.

Mom's that fish..Ya-you-bet-cha-ya....they are AWESOME!!!

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
