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

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
