Chasing Walleye and Cats with the kiddos
« on: August 15, 2018, 06:19:28 AM »
Well last Friday I was off work so I packed up the boat and kiddos and went to chase walleye and catfish at Ft. Cobb lake.  Pretty good day for us.  About an hour and half of fishing then some swimming.  Kids reeled in all the fish and dad was on net job.  They did pretty good and we got enough for a fish fry the next evening.  Can't complain!  Here's a few pics from the day



Bel caught the first walleye but it was under the 14" slot so it went back to get bigger



next Bel caught a channel cat that was probably around 4lbs.



Jack was pretty darn proud of his first catch, also his first walleye that was 19.5"



Next Bel caught a blue that was probably 5-6lbs.  It gave her a pretty good fight with a couple runs once it saw the boat



Last fish was another walleye for Jack, this one was 16"



livewell shot





kids found some eggs buried in the sand.  Guessing they were turtle eggs.



the backseat was pretty whipped by end of the day



thanks for looking folks!

Great post.  Thanks!

Nice photo essay.  Great day for all especially the children.  The last photo of your son and the puppy is a classic.  Thanks.
