Son Kicks Father's Butt

4 posts in this topic

Well, it was bound to happen. My 15 year has been with me on several musky trips but had failed to get one. Always the net boy or catching slimers. Saturday night before the cold front, I hit a nice 46" and he we getting depressed and not talking much. We switched spots to a location most folks dont hit and within a couple casts, he nailed this little guy. Photo'd and measured with a soft tape. Made my fish look like a snot rocket. 8" across the back of the head and 23" girth. Hopefully he will remember this trip long after I am gone. BTW, after sunset and right before moonrise.

Nice fish. I remember when my son shot his first archery deer, I couldn't have been more happy or proud.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
