Holy Giant Laker Batman!

22 posts in this topic

Did you gals read about that 49.4lb lake trout caught by a Hibbing mother and daughter team on Lake Nipigon in Ontario? They caught it mid-July. Here's a pic from the Duluth News-Tribune: wpxtrout0824.jpg

It took them 45 mins to get it in the boat! Isn't that an awesome catch?

Yes, it’s coming back to me now……

I’m fighting this fish and this sled comes flying up. Rider gets off walks over, says HI introduces himself then asks for a Beer. Well the nice guy I am, I reach over for one to give to him and take my attention off that huge fish for one second…….and then it was gone.

Without skipping a beat, the guy then asks for a smoke, so I sent him over to you grin

That 50lber is still swimming. wink

The woman holding the fish works at one of the offices we support(computer systems) up here. Her mother was really excited to get the fish and she was pretty dare excited to see her mother get the fish.

Fish over 30 lbs have been caught from Bside. Divers report seeing lakers between 30 and 40 lbs. A 20-plus is caught every couple of years. Last year or the year before on spring opener, a guest at Camp Van Vac was fishing off the dock with dead cisco on the bottom and caught a 20 and a 17.

I think dtro's fish wasn't quite 50. You know how much bigger fish look in the water than they do once they're on the ice. winkwink

Sent her the link Friday...teasing her about being an "Internet Star",she thought it was pretty cool to be a topic on fishing forum.

Her co-worker(who I also sent the link to) who is also a good friend of hers outside of work said something that I can't post here about being an "Internet Star" and not exposing some body parts blush They can be interesting to work with whistleblushgrincool

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"  
    •   Those are great names from the kids. They seem to know where they will end up in the end! Instead of sweety, cuddles, lovey........  Lol
    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.
    • red wings are back, sand hill cranes calling  all kinds of Robins nice
    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
    •   No, I'm not totally discrediting any preventative measures, in fact I have stated time and time again that it is the best  safeguard against MOST diseases and other ailments. The fact though is that it will not safeguard you against EVERY ailment. You even go so far as to predict that you will still get cancer in your lifetime. If your preventative measures are a cure all, why do you believe you will still get cancer?   No matter how diligent you are with preventative measures you probably will not keep every ailment at bay. All I am saying is that when you are older you will find this out. I haven't seen anyone live forever yet.
