New baby boy born! "Little Ben" ,7.7 lbs 19.5 in.!! Continuing to do my part in ensuring the fish population does not get out of hand. I figure strapping a jig-stick to his hand and bouncing him on my knee should produce some good action and get me 2 extra holes to fish with!

red: congrats to you and your wife. enjoy the time you will spend with him. the look in his eyes when he pulls that first one through the ice is awesome. and I also think you have a new jiggin' technique already to go. Bill

Congrats on the new addition, After having 3 of my own and watching them grow and seeing their accomplishments it really makes you proud. Kids can put alot of pressure on a marriage, but patients makes it easier. Next thing you know its girls calling the boys and boys calling the girls, Dad I need money for this or that I need the car. Life is great!!!!! And in the end it is all well worth it!!!!!!!!!!!! Best wishes for you and your family.

Congrats to all the new, or recently new, Dads and Moms.

I taught both of my girls how to fish, hunt, and enjoy the great outdoors. Now they fish better than some the the guys that are hanging around them.

But my biggest pride is my 9 yr old fishing, shooting, and this year hunting buddy. All I have to do is mention that I'm planning a sporting trip of some kind, and that's all I hear from him until we go. And if I don't take him along because I've got plans with someone else, it's like I cut out his heart. But he understands that sometimes Dad needs to play with the other Big Dogs. And I always make sure the next trip is his.

I hope all of you have the same wonderful experiences, and the same joy as I've got. And remember, raise them as sportsmen/sportswomen, and you'll never regret it. They might even teach you a thing or two along the way... grin.gif

Congradulations Jughead, looks like she's got a great start! Feb 8th Ben was born. Your right about the "no restrictions".Last summer my oldest was a little over two when she took her first fishing trip down to the Rum River. A Barbie Pole rigged with a plastic casting plug that's shaped like a fish is all she needed. After a little lesson in reeling it up and pushing the button she was set. On a couple of occasions when she needed help with a twisted line she would tell me to go back to my spot cause that was her spot where I was standing. She's catching on quick. Im betting she'll be schooling me 3 to 1 by the time she's 5. You never know, maybe by the time she's 18 she'll want to use her college tuition money to buy the new Ranger boat and hit the tournament trail with her Dad, HeHe!

      Funny, my wife and I drove by Big Rice on our way to Grand Rapids. I pointed to the launch and said, somewhere there's an old rotting couch in there, two clowns 🤡🤡 on the forum keep joking each other about pissing on. She said gross! Cuz that's what guys talk about on forums! 😆😅🤣

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?
