Go MOM! Happy Mothers Day!

Recommended Posts

Guest

Most anglers credit there fathers, uncles, brothers, or grandfathers for instilling a strong interest in fishing. True my grandfather and other male influences were instrumental, but my Mom she is the true hardcore in my family, even by my standards.

It has been a tradition to go fishing on mothers day with Mom for as long as I remember, also a gift of a new fishing rod or tackle is a given. Mom just loves to fish, she takes it serious too, ya just gota love a Mom that digs fishing!

I have learned a lot from her and the one thing she instilled in me was if ya want to feel a bite keep the rod in your hands, she seldom miss's a bite or a fish.

Happy Mothers Day MOM, and to all you fishing Mom's out there who fish on Mothers Day, you go girl! Catch a piggy!


And MOM, Thank's for all the fishing trip's and the gift of fishing you shared with me!

Right on BWE!!

I'd have to say thanks to my mother for allowing me to go fishing even when I could have been helping out more around the house.

I thank her for always believing in me and supporting my passion for the great out of doors!

I guess with out my mom, I might never have lost a "nice" fish, broke my line, lost my favorite lure, been bit by numerous deer flies and ran for shelter from the oncoming thunderstorm! In other words, I would have never had the chance to learn "how" to fish!

Also, with out my mom, I would have never been givin' the opportunity to take my son fishing!

DOn't you dare go with out thanking your mom for all of those little things she has done for you over the years and don't just do it on "Mother's Day"! Once she's gone, you won't ever get to thank her again!!

Thanks Mom!!!!

There's an excellent article and a real tribute to a fishing mom and her mother in the Star Tribune. Log onto startribune.com
click on outdoors - it's the lead article.
Warning - better get the kleenex first if you've lost a parent that liked to fish.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
