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?

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.

Its all fun and cames until you tell them to put a hook through it!! grin

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

    • Had an 09'. Got rid of it. Also,  you could not keep the front end aligned.  Otherwise a very nice truck.
    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....  
    • i,ve been falsey accused of inproprieties!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Ken W, I have that book too. Before the internet it was really tough to find info. about sausage making. I never had luck getting a tangy flavor using Fermento. The sausage was very good though.
    • Jacks work very smooth, fresh grease and by hand feels fine for the amount of weight.  I think for the winter we'll just use the gas auger up and the hand drill down.  I don't want to sink another penny into these darn jacks if I can help it, should be swapping out by next year.  I may look into the gear reduction but I feel like trying to throw one of them on each of the jacks could add another 100 that could go toward electric.  leech if you ever stumble on that video post the link so I can see what hes doing different.  Works great on the tongue when it can pivot on the wheels but when lifting the full weight of the house at the back two jack points it just doesnt cut it.
