Lukes first fish!

Recommended Posts

Slyster

Hey.. I have to share... even though we haven't had great luck yet.. we DID get a few fish last weekend.. including Luke's (my 4 y/o) first fish EVER. Was so fun! These pictures are from Lake Gervais and Spoon lake. As I stated in another post.. we finally got a motor.. so this last weekends trip was really our (my) first ever for the metro area. I fish a lot in Quetico, Canada (conoe) and have wonderful times up there.. but still a newbie down here.

I teach 7th and 8th grade:
7th = Biology
8th = Earth Science

And I used to work at 3M science dept for 3 years.. I love science.... my main interests are biology (birding, fishing, camping) and geology (rocks) and really enjoy astronomy... and weather as well.. nothing better than a severe thunderstorm! (I am an active storm chaser in the summers..)

And also into gaming (Quake3) and computers...

I have my own gaming clan and forum over at http://www.slyster.com/fightclub

All fun stuff!!... no?

lots of luck

Slyster,

Man thats great. Puts everything into perspective. It looks like you did it right, broke up fishing with some playground action. I have pics just like those from about 20-22 years ago, and memories that are just as vivid. Make an investment now with your time and patience, and you'll have a son as a best friend and fishing partner for life.

p.s. With your rig you'll always be first to the "hot spots", pulling the boat with the hotrod.

Hey Sylvester that looks alot like Gervais or actually Spoon in between Gervais and Keller. Nothing like getting the little one in to it right away, that's what I like to see.

I see you are gamer too, my friends and I frequent eachothers homes with our computers for all out LAN gaming. Well we do in the winter anyway, now that summers here not so much to much fishing to do...

Yeah.. my dumb car sticks out like a sore thumb surrounded by pickups and SUV's at every boat launch. Rear wheeled drive and light as well.. so sometimes I can't pull the boat up.. even that tiny boat.. wheels spin on the sand. Stinks.

yep.. fun stuff.. my boy will remember that day for a long time!

Went there last night too.. just for an hour with wife a daughter this time.. 2 y/o Kelsey caught HER first fish too now... although.. really not on her own...

      Does anyone know where I can rent and/or use a paddle board on Vermilion? Thanks!

      We fished the small lake a few week back the water was really high. No luck with bass around the pads tried Texas rigged worms and spinner baits, we did find crappies in 8-10" around Lilly pads and reeds crappies were caught on panfish leaches and small glow jigs.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.

      I bought a used boat and I had the dealer install my Lowrance HDS on the dash. There was already two Lowrance units that came with the Boat. One mounted in the bow and the other in the dash. So when the dealer installed my HDS, the networked it to the older unit from the dash. My sonar on the HDS would only work if the dash unit was on. I really don’t know the advantages of doing this?  Anyways, this past weekend I landed the boat and the dash unit wouldn’t power up. I checked and I did have power going to the unit. Hence no sonar. I had to go old school and caught 10 eyes! Lol so my question is how do I bypass the network so I can just run the HDS? Thanks!
