Daughter's first time on the ice!

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      Everything I’ve ever heard is that it’s their best store...

      That does look good, hard to beat the price and convenience. I looked into these a couple years ago but ended up finding a fairly local guy who does great work for good prices. He's doing my second Euro now

      Jarrid,,, Nice having a short chat with you at MG ,,, Will need to finish that conversation some time before next years open water season ,,,, Good turkey sandwiches at MG

      Yeah, I just tell myself, I only have these few years to really enjoy the kids things.  It will fly by I am sure, then I will miss it.   Over the First 3 weekends of Muzzy season Isaac has 12 games, Friday thru Sunday.  Time would be thin.   Muzzy season has always been a hit and miss season for me.  Usually dont need any more meat, and no really established properties to hunt.  Public is the usual.

      I found 4" along the shore of a small shallow lake...so tempting!  Anyone else finding anything fishable?

      How about a digital photo frame in the shack.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...
