We got hooked on chasing Lakers on Lake George NY. It's a 3 hour drive, so we leave at 3 AM to be there just before sunrise. This picture is of my son Brenden after punching the first hole of the day as the sun rises. Totally worth it...

Second weekend in December finds us in St. Germain making venison sausage at my cousins place. Smokehouse gets lit Friday morning to get any residual humidity out, sausage gets mixed and stuffed in the afternoon and then there's social time until everyone goes home. Sausage hangs in the garage till Saturday afternoon to dry a bit. Wait... what happened to Saturday morning?  :-\ Oh, I remember!

Early breakfast then head to the Rainbow for some walleyes!  :tipup:  :icefish:



This was actually one of the warmest weekends I fished.  Wake up temp was 16F  ;D

Had a cool pic of the shack at sunset same day but I picked this. Pictured are my son (foreground) and his buddy. Oh yeah, sausage gets 3 - 5 days in the smokehouse depending on the weather. This batch was done Monday evening. Yum!
To fish or not to fish? That's a stupid question!

Size doesnt matter. We survived a long day and managed to at least catch a fish.



Just a nice day to be fishing and catch a rare smallmouth. Great fight on light line fishing for crappies.


In the memory of "Team Lighting" Fish ON!

As far as picrtures go, its nothing special, other than a happy kid on a beautiful day.  Its for sure a huge Rainbow. The part that is special is that I dont have any idea who this little guy is!!  This little guy  and his dad were just out for a drive on a nice day and came out to visit with me while I was fishing. I hooked this fish while I was talking to them and knew it was a tank so I grabbed this little guy, handed him my fishing pole  and told him to land it. 20 minutes later this was the result!! They were laughing and having a blast, dad was on the phone with mom giving her the play-by-play, the little guy was worried the whole time it would get away.  It was cool. He had so much fun I had to give up my rod for the next hour so he could keep fishing lol!! The most memorable fish I have are the ones I didnt even catch!!

So I was jigging for perch in the little city resevoir by myself one fine winter day. With my trusty 20 dollar one 3 fishing ultra light heat wave combo from wallmart. On the reel I had 8lb ice pro braid with 3lb Berkley ice mono leader, tipped with number 2 forage minnow spoon. I had a small school of little perch and gills messing with my emotions on the flasher. When suddenly a gigantic mark smashed my tiny fire tiger spoon. At at first it was kind of heavy and I thought I had a large mouth and luckily had the drag set accordingly. As I brought her up ,I just caught site of the little swivel my leader was attached to and she must have realized she was hooked and she ran.  And ran and ran! Completely spooled me to maybe a dozen wraps on the spool. By then I figured it was one of the big pike that lived there, that I have donated god know how many lures to. She allowed herself to be brought backed to the hole until i could see her for the first time... I'm not gonna lie, I peed a little. She must have sensed my weakness and felt I didnt deserve her, and off she went again. This time all the way to the tape that covered the knot on my spool, no more line left to give i thought it was over. Instead she let me bring her back. That all took prob 15 to 20 min plus a million hours, give or take. Got her to the hole I could see just the tip of the minnow poking out of her mouth right in the middle so I figure she would break me off or spit the hook. I knew she could because I set the hook on this particular monster earlier that year and she snapped my 4o gamakatsu hook off at the eye. With no options and nobody responding to my lady like screams for help . I worked her nose into the hole got a finger in her gill and dragged her out onto the ice. I just stared at her for a sec in disbelief, then reach down and grabbed the line to turn her face a little and pop. The line finaly gave. She came in at 41in and weighed 17.24 lbs out of a pond just over 2 acres in size.

I hate not fishing
