Mom Outfished Me!

8 posts in this topic

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!!!

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
