Had a great weekend fishing...


Recommended Posts

Spent the holidays at my In-laws.

Saturday night I went out and fished a few hours before sundown. Caught a nice 11" or so Crappie, a bunch of sunnies and finally landed my first large mouth bass (Ice fishing). I actually caught 3 Bass that night. Wow, are they fun on an ultra light panfish setup. First one was 2-3 pounds or so..I think he made 3 runs back down as I got him near the hole. The other 2 were in 1.5 pound range.

Let all the fish go that night.

The next day, Grandpa took my daughter out, and I went with my Son. I had a blast! Wow, one year really makes a difference. Last year my son (he was 4 years old) was really impatient, and so was I. frown.gif This time out, it was a totally different situation. He really got into it and I was suprised he didnt want to switch spots with my daughter (she wanted to fish with me and have my son fish with grandpa). Maybe the camera was the reason, but I'm hoping it was spending time with me. =) Meanwhile, my daughter didnt want to fish, and they left after about 10 minutes on the ice.

Then the following night (Christmas), my daughter wanted to go fishing. I wasnt feeling so good, but decided to head out. Again, I had a blast! I thought we were only out for an hour or so, but it was actually over 2 and a half hours!

There really is something special with spending time with your kids and doing some fishing. It's not always the fishing, but just the quiet time you have with them. I think the camera was a factor, but if my kids enjoy fishing more because of it, I'll gladly bring it. cool.gif

Sounds like you had a great time.

Teach your kids to fish young and you'll be thanking yourself for many years. I guess thats coming from a "kid". smile.gif

I 'dragged' dad along to both Upper Red Lake & Lake of the Woods over the last few days. Walleyes, walleyes, and more walleyes! Gotta love it!

Hanson, you're lucky you get to drag your dad along! I think I've spent only a couple of hours fishing with my dad in the past 20 years. Prior to that he'd take me to Canada for a camping fishing trip.. But since then.. He's been busy with 'other things'.

Anyways, A buddy and I are planning a LoW and Red trip in the middle of february. I cant wait!

    • Luxury RV camping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of home. With the right equipment and preparation, luxury RV camping can be a truly unforgettable experience. In this essay, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to luxury RV camping, including tips on choosing the right RV, selecting the best campsite, and packing for your trip.   The first step to planning a luxury RV camping trip is to choose the right RV. There are a variety of different types of RVs available, ranging from small and compact trailers to large and luxurious motorhomes. The right RV for you will depend on your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   One popular option for luxury RV camping is a Class A motorhome. These motorhomes are typically the largest and most luxurious RVs available, with spacious interiors, full kitchens, and even multiple bathrooms. They often come equipped with high-end features such as leather upholstery, flat-screen televisions, and high-quality audio systems. Class A motorhomes are also the most expensive type of RV, but they offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury.   Another popular option for luxury RV camping is a fifth wheel trailer. These trailers are typically larger than travel trailers and are designed to be towed by a pickup truck. They offer many of the same amenities as Class A motorhomes, including full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, and high-end features such as surround sound systems and flat-screen televisions. Fifth wheel trailers are often less expensive than Class A motorhomes but still offer a high level of comfort and luxury.   Once you have chosen the right RV for your luxury camping trip, the next step is to select the perfect campsite. There are a variety of different types of campsites available, ranging from basic, no-frills campsites to high-end RV resorts with all the amenities. When selecting a campsite, it is important to consider your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   If you are looking for a truly luxurious camping experience, consider staying at an RV resort. These resorts often offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and even golf courses. They also typically offer high-end services such as concierge service, valet parking, and room service. RV resorts can be expensive, but they offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort.   If you are looking for a more affordable camping experience, consider staying at a state or national park. These parks offer a variety of different campsites, ranging from basic tent sites to RV sites with electrical and water hookups. While state and national parks may not offer the same level of luxury as RV resorts, they do offer the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors.     Once you have chosen the perfect RV and campsite, the final step is to pack for your luxury camping trip. When packing for a luxury RV camping trip, it is important to focus on comfort and convenience. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the weather and activities you have planned, as well as comfortable shoes for hiking and exploring.   In addition to clothing, it is important to pack all the essentials you will need for your trip. This includes bedding, towels, toiletries, and any medications or other personal items you may need. It is also important to pack food and drinks, as well as any cooking supplies you will need for meals. If you are camping in the cold weather, bring the Ocoopa Union 5s rechargeable hand warmers are easy to use for camping. First, charge it, then turn it on, and finally, place it in your gloves or pockets. Additionally, the rechargeable hand warmer has 4 heat settings, allowing you to adjust the temperature to various weather conditions. With a large 10000mAh battery, it can provide up to 15 hours of heat and could use as a power bank, making it an ideal hand warmer for extended outdoor activities.   Finally, when packing for your luxury RV camping trip, don’t forget to pack entertainment options such as books, movies, and games. While luxury camping offers many opportunities for relaxation and outdoor activities, it is also important to have options for downtime and relaxation.
