My daughters first

12 posts in this topic

Today is a great day. My 10 year daughter caught her first Tiger muskie this afternoon. She caught the fish on a #5 shad rap in 8FT of water. Let's just say she is now hooked on muskie fishing.

Here is the photo. It's not the best photo. She wanted to hold the fish by herself. The fish swam away just fine.

Very cool!!! Congrats you you and your daughter!

Best part is purchases of muskie gear can be labeled as being "for her".

Thanks everyone!!!!!!! She says thank you for the nice comments.

She is on fire right now. I took her out on Monday morning and she got some slime time again and she lost a real nice fish before she caught this one. Looks like I found a new job as a net man!!!!

Congrats again! That sure makes it fun!

What a great picture too, done with the timer I assume? Nice job at capturing a memory like that..... Definitely one to frame and display!

Chris,

I use a remote with the camera. It's makes it real easy to take pictures by myself.

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
