A quick evening/morning rainy river report and a PB

Recommended Posts

Our daughter celebrated her 6th bday this weekend! Good times!!!

 

Saturday morning came and she begged to go fishing... who am I to say no?

 

But first I had chores etc so when those were done, it was already 5pm by the time we hit the river.

 

Absolutely gorgoeus out! +21 and barely a breeze!

 

The bite was slow but we managed a few small walleye and a couple nice crappie?

 

Really cool thing happened. 4 casts in a row and I caught 4 species...

 

First came a 26" northern, then a 15" walleye, then a 13" crappie and finally a rock bass. That was pretty cool!

 

Today we headed out early, again, beauty of a day! By 9am it was already +16. Woot woot

 

We laid tobacco as per usual and got a nice 19" walleye second cast!

 

Then a 15"er, a few rock bass, then a hefty 28" pike.

 

A few more good eaters and she was almost time to head in.

 

Then bang! Fish on! Not me but Lily! Her first walleye as a 6 year old and she fought it like a champ! Her arms tired, the fish finally showed itself! A quick measure and pic and there it is, her new PB walleye, 18"???

Nothing but GREAT times. Nature is also a pretty good babysitter if ya ask me.

 

Thanks wkrp, benson and gallie!!!

 

I never measured it Geoff, just a guess. Maybe 14" but I doubt any bigger. She was fat though! And guess what was in her belly? A frog!

 

Only fish I measured was Lilys walleye just so I know what she has to beat next time!
