Getting my wife involved in fishing/boating etc..

Recommended Posts

To the moderators of this forum. First let me say that the "trolling humor" link is hilarious. Also, are there any classes or clubs that my wife could look into, to learn more about fishing, boating and boat control, etc.. We recently got married and will hopefully be purchasing a boat in the spring. I am a very avid outdoorsman and she loves to fish and has even expressd interest in going to gun training with some of her friends. Other than putting bait on a hook under a bobber, I would like to teach her, or have her around other fisherwomen to teach her the how to's of C & R, presentation, weather patterns, peak fishing times etc.. She always likes to know the "why's" of these things. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks much.

There are several class's for the MN Sportswoman that pop up from now and then. I am not 100% sure but check the DNR web site to see if they list any there.

I see special womans sportsman's clinics advertised now and then ranging in interests from bow hunting to fishing.

There is a womans sportsman coalition in MN and in other states. I have seen web-rigs dedicated to the woman angler and there needs too. Try a web search, you will be amazed at how many womans clubs and such there are in the nation.

The fastest growing demographic in the fishing and sporting world is the Female Angler. You can bet that has not escaped the eye of the big sporting companies!

You now see major sponsored woman in the PWT and the RCL, Like Julia Davis for one. The big money sponsors know woman buy more now then before, so they are finally paying attention to woman in the competitive fishing world.

And Ya know what I say..You Go Girl! It's about time!

Hi Yeti, Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you, but I was up at the Lake for 12 days fishing. Got to get as much in as possible before the snow starts falling. Its great that your wife shows some of the same interests as you. I'm not sure about any classes. I personally don't belong to any, but there isn't any in my area that I know of. Do the web search like Ed said. There is a lot of information out there such as books, magazines and videos. One of the best places to go to learn about fishing is right here. Have her join in here. In the winter Hubby and I go to sports shows and there are always fishing siminars put on by fishing pros that are interesting.
Good Luck <><Mary><>

I have been scratching my head about this and it seemed like someone mentioned a course in MN some time ago. But I have not had to time search and can't remember what it was (no suprise) so maybe you might want to try searching in some back topics.

Ron Schara's(Minnesota Bound)had a bit about a womens group that teaches outdoor sports. From shooting guns & bows, to fishing and winter camping. For the life of me I can't remember the name of the group :-( maybe you can check the Minnesita Bound web site for information. good luck

    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
