a few pics from summer

Recommended Posts

ell, summer started off well for my family and I, kids are having a blast anyhows. I got stuck doing a bunch of training for a job, so I've been away and haven't fished too much which is always a bummer. Still had some good times though, like shore fishing with my 3 boys and getting chased by a super aggressive black bear! That was quite the experience, and had the heart racing while I attempted to protect my children, which somehow worked without me getting mauled. The kids made it to safety while I did some Bruce Lee moves with a fillet knife! heheheh

 

Bass fishing has been great the few times I managed to get out, and the kids all caught good fish. The water got pretty low and warm, so they did well on topwaters, which is fun for me to watch, and means I can fish myself without taking out snags over and over.

 

Made it out on Rainy Lake(Northwest bay) and had a blast catching walleye by the hundreds. Some 28"'s, tons of eaters, and even some around 6", lol. Lots of crappies to be had, and some 35-40" pike as well. And some great perch, which I havent caught for awhile.

 

Anyhow, a few random pics

This is the fella that was so impressed with my fillet knife skills that he decided not to eat me. I managed a few pics, but most are pretty blurry. On account of me being scared and running, lol

The secret to surviving a bear attack is to run faster than your companion. :devil:

 

 

Yep, agreed, too bad it was my kids. So I had to man up, lol.

 

And yeah, a fillet knife would do nothing, but when push comes to shove, you'd be surprised what you reach for and what sounds like a good idea, hehe. Once you've made a choice, your forced to stick with it. I had no time to dig through the tackle box once again with this guy standing about 3ft away.

 

I was just thinking right on! My kids are safe! Oh crap, now what do I do?

Thanks!

 

I've been around for a few hours here and there, just to browse though. Too tired and beat down from training to actually do anything, lol.

 

The bear thing was enough excitement for the summer I suppose

      A few weeks back me and two good friends did a trip 5 years in the making.   We have himmed and hawwed  made excuses over the years this that and the other but we finally made it to Nipigon.

    • Summer time crappies

      Hi All, I'm new to the Kawarthas on Pigeon Lake near Emily Provincial Park.  I was catching some nice tasty slab crappies during the spring time, but they all seem to have disappeared.  Anyone have any idea where I can find them on Pigeon Lake?  I only have a small aluminum boat with a 9.9 outboard, so can't go far.  I would appreciate any information on where and how to find them. Thanks, KeithK

    • finally pulled the trigger and bought a few ice fishing items

      My first post in a while... Really excited since I FINALLY bought my first ever portable ice hut.  Bought a 4 person Woods arctic toaster on sale and it has good reviews.  Hope it lives up to its name of toaster.  Already set it up in the house and seems to be of very good quality and material is nice and thick and well insulated. It is on the heavier side, but it comes with a nice backpack type carrier and 8 nice ice anchors. First time ever using a portable hut let alone buying one.
