Lisa teaching the twins all about critters in the lake

17 posts in this topic

Here are some pics of Lisa's nieces at the beach looking for what ever swims in the water. They found clams,baby crayfish and a horse leech .It may look like one kid but they are twins and each insisted on each holding the leech. I bet when I take them fishing there will be no problems with putting on bait.

Yes and I believe they are called horse leeches or at least that is what we always called them.

You can see my son Dylan in the background of one pic and a sliver of my side in the 1st one. The girls weren't afraid of any of the stuff we found. I was very proud of them!

Gotta give them credit handling that leech!!! Most girls would be screaming and running as soon as it was picked up out of the water.

And how exactly can you tell them apart? I sure can't from the pics.

Have they tested the water for radiation?

Very nice. Great to see them out and actually handling their own bait.

Sorry about that but I put the same niece up there twice and now realized that I didn't upload the right picture. One is missing just one of her bottom teeth and the other is missing 2.

We have tried them for bait but I think most fish will not touch them or at least that is what it seems.

They're bloodsuckers Jim. Soft and real jelly like feeling, right? And you're right, fish don't like 'em.

Looks like they had a good time! I have twin boys (fraternal) about there age. Everybody keeps asking if they are identical. As I was looking at the first ones I was thinking to myself WOW, they look a lot alike!!!! LOL Then I read the second post.

Those first two pics were too close. I noticed their bangs area the same in the two pics. Thanks for clearing that up Jim.

Way to go Lisa!! Keep spreading the love of the outdoors. Those two girls will be catching lake trout through the ice in no time.

Wow Big Tom! You should probably stick to the Outdoor Discussion forum with that line!! I'M JUST KIDDING!!! shockedwinklaughblush

DeeDee, LOVE YOUR NEW AVATAR!!! I should probably have that one someday too!

Everyone, my neices are sometimes really hard to tell apart! But their personalities are polar opposites. They are so much fun and they remind me alot of their mom, my little sister whom is my best friend. It was really fun to grow up with her!! I better stop before I start getting really sappy. I'm just very blessed to have my 3 wonderful sisters who are so good to me. smile

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
