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.

      As far as I know every vechicle at every access has to pay a road fee .

      Was wondering what the ice conditions are after the rain on Monday?

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
