The nut doesn’t fall far from the tree

No doubt about it! Like father like son.

I previously posted a picture of my grandson Zachary catching his first fish . His expression was priceless.

Now I know where the excitement comes from. Zach’s father Scott was at Flindt lake and caught about his 8 millionth walleye and it still produces a thrill.

A few days ago, I had the chance to do what I encourage every father to do.

Go fishing with your son.

In honor of Mike turning 25 and me blasting through 50 (both events later this month) Mike and I escaped for one night to paint a floor, install a new fridge, shovel out an ice house, and ...read more.

“Bigger than my brother!”

Lane Krenzen returned from a fly in trip with a huge smile bragging of a fish “Bigger than my brother!” An inch or two more and it would have been bigger than Lane too.

Father and son

Jim Harnish and his son Toby spent a few quality days together at Irene Lake. They flew out this morning all smiles and thrilled with the time spent together. This was their first fly out experience and one that will provide fish tales and memories to be shared for many years to come. My bet is that 20 years from ...read more.
