Daughter's first time on the ice!

8 posts in this topic

Was planning to check out my new Cabela's Underwater Camera at Medicine but my 6 year old daughter surprised me with a request to go. Needless to say I changed my course of action and set off on finding anything that would bite.

I thought I would be out fro an hour and head back home but we found more 6 inch perch than you could catch and she even said the one man Clam has to go so we have more room! Mom loved that.

Had to keep a few dinks but it was worth cleaning, she said we should go again!

Great day on the water even if I didn't catch many.

Thats good she had fun, hopefuly it will stay that way! Try Red Rock Lake in Eden Prairie, She will get more sunfish than she will know what to do with - that and they will hat anything!!! Good luck and have fun with the new bigger house ;\)

Awesome to hear. Great to get the kids out on fish. Hope you guys have many more years of fishing together.

That's awesome. I took my daughter out last year for her first time. She was a little less than 2 years old. We setup some tipups and I was walking over to get a jigging rod when she started yelling. I turned around and a tipup was up. I thought maybe she had done it until I saw the spindle start spinning. We brought in a small northern and released it. She then says to me, "Again, again!"

Hard to manage those expectations. She still loves it though. \:\)

Way to go anyfish. I've got two girls and they love going fishing with me.

I second the comment for Red Rock. I've caught well over 50 sunnies a day there without even moving the shack. They aren't worth writing home about but the kids love it. There are also bass and norts too so you can show your little one how tip-ups work. Also, the water clarity is like 10ft so your camera would work awesome if the fishing is slow.

Thats just awesome. I wish I could have seen her excitement. I took my niece out fishing last week, and that is what it is all about I tell ya. My niece was pumped, just makes my excitement x 10. The sunfish/crappie bite on the vexlar just got her in the zone. Everytime I'm out by myself I think of that and I'm like a little kid in my Eskimo fort.

I have fun getting little kids out ice fishing. The perch, and small sunfish are a persons best friend.

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
