Train up a child in the way they should go, And they will not depart from it

Check one off my 5 year old grandson's bucket list. Since last year when he was 4 he wanted to "go Walleye fishing in grandpa's big boat"!

Set him up with a 6 foot ugly stick rod and reel, lindy rig and leech and told him to hold on with both hands! I never prayed so hard when he hooked it that he didn't lose it at the boat or grandpa miss netted it! :( :D

I never helped him reel it in or anything because by the time I turned to get the net he had it cranked up to the boat! :lol:

Yes it did. I was sweating bullets until it was in the net because he cranked it up so green it was diving at the boat big time. And I remember back when I was young and had the biggest pike I ever had in my life yet on, and a buddy of my uncles miss netted it and pulled the hook out of it's mouth and I lost it. My dad was pissed at the guy and I thought he was going to knock him out of the boat! :P

That is great!  Hopefully he follows the path you started him on.  I have 3 grandsons 3 and under and can't wait to get them in the boat.

We have a 2 1/2 year old grandson as well. He pulled a few nice Bass off the dock but when it came Walleye time in the boat. Grandma had to run interference and find something for him to do in town.

Is it a camera with a card that comes out or a phone?   If it is a phone you should be able to upload pictures wireless to icloud or something like dropbox.   Then download to computer.    If it is a camera with SD card get a little reader thing if there isn't a sd slot in your computer.

Had this little guy out on LoTW over the 4th weekend.  3 days in the boat and never got sick or bored. I was nervous about taking him on the trip, but he handled it like a pro. (yes the life jacket went on right after the pic)

He turned 3 on the 5th.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
