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.

    • Thanks for the heads up man I was looking at Garmins but I feel like the only ones I saw with SI were way out of my price range ha
    • I need to make a beer run the fridge is getting low up in here.   #rentfree
    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
