SIMPLY THE BEST!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

It wasn't planned but took my boy (21months old) ice fishing today for the first time. HE LOVED IT! He was fascinated by the ice auger drilling holes, loves riding with dad on the "snowmean"...he cant quite say snowmachine. His little hands resting on my thigh while he's perched at the front to hold on is sooooo cooooool, 2 buddies out for a ride!

 

We went and checked out my buddy Lew's shack which he drove out boxing day, Jack thought that was awesome, he loved the little hatches for the ice holes.

 

We only stayed for one hour, and fished for a total of 20 minutes and caught nothing...who cares :thumbsup_anim: , but nap time was fast approaching (for Jack) and lunch, although i had brought it with us was not gonna happen out there...he was way to excited to eat.

 

He cried a lot on the way home, partly because he was tired but also....in his own words ...."LAKE AGAIN....LAKE, SNOWMEAN AGAIN"!!! He did not want to leave!

 

 

Will have to get Mum to join us in the shack which is situated right over a prime walleye spot.

 

 

Here are some pics from this afternoon. I'll never forget today....ever!!!!

He looks like a natural ! Congrats.... treasure it while it lasts... one day it "ain't cool" hanging out with your dad...

DANG simon.. I ALMOST wanna have another one ! lol

 

The day will be etched in your mind for ever... I can still remember vividly slapping a life jacket on our son, 25 years ago, and tying him to a tree in Kelso park in Milton to fish the reservoir.

Thanks for the replies gang...i am one proud daddy today, his poor feet were frozen solid when i took his so called -30 boots off when we got home, he did not complain about that once...will have to be careful next time...especially since he was having so much fun he blocked out the pain of frozen digits!

Dad feels luckier at the moment. But yeah, this is exactly what we moved here from England for.

Brian....that is my favourite pic too....he just looks so into the whole thing, it totally looks like he's sharing a joke with the boys, what he was actually smiling at was another snowmachine whizzing by.

very cool. Being the father of 3 girls, I don't quite have the same enthusiam over here. Unfortunately for my kids it is a punishment when they misbehave. "If you don't smarten up you will go fishing with your dad." I have already had a few of those this year where there is an angry daughter in the back of the boat. I really don't mind their punishment, gets me out on the water. lol
