Making memories

River Dan

Recommended Posts

This afternoon my niece asked me if I'd take her fishing, so of course we went down to the St Croix for some bobber fishing, found a area that was holding fish and anchored up and proceeded to get bites right away and soon she was boating smallies but being only 10 years old didn't want to touch them but I had her hold one lightly with a needle nose so I could at least get a picture


I adjusted the boat to a different area and she boated the first of several walleyes with this 17 being the largest and also her first ever and she was scared to touch it also but I had her sit with the ruler on her lap and balanced the fish on it for a picture


She had so much fun and can't wait to do it again, nothing is better then bring a young one fishing and making memories that will last a life time! cool

That's what it's all about. My 4 year old daughter has been asking me to go out as well. We took her to the Kinnie beach to play and fish a little, I just tossed out a crawler and put it in the rod holder and she got to reel in several smallies. We're heading to the in-laws cabin in Brainerd today and can't wait to get her out and catch some pannies.

Good job Dan. Our youth are our future.

Great job Dan! Thats a great way to get a youngster hooked on fishing! I have a 5 month old son and he is already holding on to the butt of my pole and i really can't wait till he is old enough to really fishing!

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
