Gift for New Baby Girl

Recommended Posts

We had a new granddaughter last week and was looking for something unique. I remembered this poem I saw on an ad in In-Fisherman. I took her picture at 2 days old - which of course is adorable - put it into my Microsoft Publisher then I laid the poem on top of it and printed it on photographic paper and framed it. Even my husband said it was really neat. Here is the poem:

Take me fishing.
Because my wedding will
Be sooner than you think.

Take me fishing.
And show me that worms
really aren’t that icky.

Take me fishing.
You can think about
work later.

Take me fishing.
Because I get the giggles
when the boat bounces.

Take me fishing,.
Because my wedding will
be sooner than you think.

Congradulations Grandma. Thank you for the poem it was great. I'll have to do that with my grandaughters pictures. I have 8 grandaughters and 3 grandsons. I'm always looking for ideas that have to do with fishing to give them. I got a picture of my oldest grandaughter holding some fish she caught last summer and she has her 11th birthday coming up in April. Of course I'll have to do 2 so I can keep one for myself.

Hi Mary: Of course I had to do 2 also! I gave it to my daughter last night and she loved it! Your picture with the little girl would work great. The add I saw was a girl about that age - but I just could not wait that long! Nice day today - getting the itch again - bought some fake minnows at Wal-mart just to keep me going for awhile. wink.gif

Phyl...congrats on the grandkid!

The poem you found is part of a national ad campaign designed to increase participation in boating and fishing. There are several other spots....a boy and his grandpa, a husband and wife (take me fishing and make me feel 16 again...) a grandpa and his son...
They are all highly emotional, and appear to be working. This will be the second year of the campaign...pushing this spring into the National Fishing and Boating Week in June.

For more info on the ad spots, check out www.rbff.org (the HSOforum for Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation)...or www.waterworkswonders.org (this is the site for the ad campaign...and has links to events nationwide...)

Hi ghotierman: Thanks for the links! I am sure I can find some more ideas for great gifts since the daughter one was such a hit. The ad that I saw about the daughter was really cute and well done. My hats off to them.

fishingphyl...a great gift idea for kids, and a great investment in the future of fishing: a lifetime license! Very affordable for kids, and even if they move out of state it's still good for life!

That is a very good idea except my grandson and granddaughter live in ND. But this would be a great idea for all the "natives".

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
