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!!!

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
