Put em up...put em up!!
One of the guys I worked with kept saying FIBS. I laughed pretty good when I finally heard what it meant.
Round these parts, we call em Strawberries or Calicos...
i had no idea fish had such...colloquial names. my wife says she used to go fishin for a "horned pout" which I think is a catfish. i dunno why she dosn't call it a catfish. this seems to be very common with the freshwater fishes. i suppose its not much different than the mountain lion/cougar/puma thing.
If you're gonna say it, say it right. FIBWAB
Effin Illinois Bastage WITH A BOAT. Not all smokers (and operators) are created equal. If ya gotz the skillz.....
Something to add. We had the LMB my son caught reproduced for him in fiberglass.
We surprised him for his 13th birthday.
Which chin are you reffering to?
Now that's a good one!!
Funny you fella's bringing this post back up. We got a letter in the mail this morning. Seems my son(the true fisherman) has been invited to the Connecticut Trophy Fish Awards Ceremony where he will be getting another award. All they would say is they are giving awards in various categories. But I think he may have grabbed the largest LMB for a CT youth in 2012!
Just way too cool and I am so freekin proud of my little fishin buddy! No words can even come close to how I feel! And he's off the charts too!
Getting ready to make the annual "cabin fever" run up to the lower Niagara River for some salmon and trout (and the occasional muskie). I work the area from Devil's Hole down past Lewiston to Stella's Drift. Its like "ice fishing" as far as the temps go, but you're boat fishing with the scenic Niagara/Lewiston area all around. Most folks fish egg sacks, I prefer artificials, silver firedot Flatfish (Quickfish) being my favorite lure!
We expect pics, JT.............you know how it goes around here!
Congrats to your little man, that award is something he'll always have.......it'll be in the books!
Will do! I hope the smile fits in the photo's. Might need an extra wide angle lens!
Pictures as promised!
I'll post a copy of the official CT DeEP publishing once its released.
We went to the fishing show first and talked to a couple local pro's. They were very helpful with advice on youth leagues and possible tournament fishing in his future. Very helpful and they were impressed with his fishing knowledge. Also talked to the BASS area rep and looking into their high school program. Just missed Charlie Moore, Joey might have challenged him to a fishing duel.
We had a great 2012 season and can't wait to get winter over with, So we can start next season.
Awesome! Proud of the little guy!
My boys (and my daughter too) are all getting to the age where they are really starting to like fishing. Gonna spend more time doing it this summer.....
Keep up the fishing with Joey, they will produce memories that he will never forget of his quality time with you. My Dad died in the fall of "11", but I will always remember those special times hunting and fishing with him. Caught the big King in the photo fishing with him on Ontario a few years back.
