Kids Perch Derby

6 posts in this topic

I don't know how many people were at the derby today but dang...it was a heck of a turnout. And what was with the snow??? Started snowing as soon as we got out there and stopped falling as soon as the derby was over. But hopefully it was a great day for everyone, was for me and my boys, although I may need an Advil in the morning after punching all those holes this morning. crazy.gif

I had the pleasure of meeting Beef and Matt, couple of really good guys.

My boys didn't catch anything but I think that was due to Woodman asking us to move over by him... whistle.gif But they won some door prizes and had a blast. Last I heard there was only about a dozen fish caught???

Hope everyone else had a good time.

Well I was marking lots of fish when we were setting our depths, so I thought it would have been a great place with the weeds close by! Thanks BEEF! cry.gif Good day and only a few crying kids with snow balls to the face! crazy.gif

Advil, I was taking Tylenol before I left the house and as soon as I got home to pick everybody up and then again when I got home from the event. Then on the wheeler to plow and now on here. What a great way to end the weekend! grin.gif

I think a total of 12 or so perch caught... I tried Woodman to put you on the spot, but it must be the dad not the guide this time grin.gifgrin.gif..... Thanks to all who helped drill about 1300 holes.... To bad the snow and wind had to pick up.... It seemed all the kids were having a blast and thats what counts the most... Took me about three hours to thaw out... BURR!!!!

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
