Early ice, 7yr old catches monster
« on: Dec 07, 2020, 09:56 AM »
As a dad who drags his 7-year-old fishing with him almost every single time, yesterday was a time of a lifetime. Normally we set up jaw jackers And then sometimes she might reel one in, but yesterday for some reason she was dialed and trying to outrun me to jaw jackers so I let her. And then in the middle of the day one went off, and she starts running, and the jaw jacker is really bent over. I thought we'll see if she can do this on her own. We've been catching big rainbows. And so she gets there starts handling the pole And it's making huge runs like a rainbow. I even saw it once and something looked weird I was like maybe it's a brown. And then finally when it's nose came up the hole I was like holy moly That's not a brown. I couldn't have been more happy for her. 27-in. almost a foot bigger than any walleye I've pulled through the ice

I double the holy moly! I bet you'll never have to ask her twice to get in the truck. Great time to remember.     I would ask the Game and Fish if they would like to put that one picture on the front page of some publication or on a web page.
