Teaching a lesson.
« on: August 27, 2019, 10:55:46 PM »
Took a couple young fella's fishing[I drove and used my money LOL] and they did all the work.  Took an 85 Ford I bought for $200 and spent some time fixing a few things[worked like a charm] and the boat you have seen more than a few times. 
Just to show them just what kinda competion they was up against, I caught and landed

41 inch 18.4 lb Northern that fought like it was much bigger.

Had a great weekend with the lads and plans were made for a late September whitefish and lake trout jaunt.

Looks like bait but it wasn't there when I cast out the jig.  Boys were impressed I could catch one that small. :biggrin:

That's a good looking Northern.  :yoyo: I see Don has a glove on. I was holding a 36ish inch Northern like that several years ago without a glove. He shook loose and his gill rakers did quite a job on my fingers.   :rolleye: I have since either used a glove or fish gripper when handling them. Fool me once.  :wink:

Good times!  That's a dandy that Don is holding.

Oke, it is Dore lake which is the 6th biggest lake in Sask by area.  The walleye fishing is usually superb but I couldn't get one to bite to save my [Prospectors animal].  I'd love to spend some time in the boat with you. :biggrin:

Pat, Don looked for the glove first thing as he has been fooled once or twice too. :laught17:  That fish fought real well and we had smaller ones that fought huge too. :biggrin: Kinda/sorta surprised me that they fought so well and am contemplating going back in September just cause. :wo:

What did you catch the northen on?  And how did you fillet it?  I heard they got tons of bones. Nice catch

That is the hook that caught the big one.  I believe it was the number 2.  We put on some really large lures just to show the lads that fish will chase most anything. :eyebrow:  We let the big one go back for more swimming as it is an old fish that didn't deserve to die after giving us that much entertainment. :shrug:  Northern are relatively easy to fillet boneless and the lady at the lake makes it look sooooo much easier than me. :pout:

I've watched a bunch of videos on how to filet a Northern, but have still never been able to figure out those damn Y-bones.  :madd: :madd:

My passport is outdated.  I'm going to check and see what I have to do to have it renewed, so I might take you up on the offer.
