Default Moose Lake / Cold Lake Photos

I just returned from a week of holidays at our family cottage at Moose Lake. As usual, the fishing was good. My daughter caught her first fish (with a bit of help from her Mom) She actually hooked it herself and got it about half way in before she needed help which I thought was pretty good since she isn't even three yet. It's not exactly a lunker. Here are few photos:

Jada and Momma trolling along:



Fish on!:



Successfully landed. Dad is proud - Daughter not sure what to think:



My Dad with a nice Walleye the next day:



My Daughter and her cousins with another nice Walleye (It wasn't caught with the spoon in the photo - she just wouldn't hold it up on its own):



My Mom with a nice Cold Lake Laker:



Lots of fun and great to see the smiles on a kids' face when they catch one.

Chet

Chet, that is one awesome report and pics!! Thanks for the report. Even if there were no fish it would be a good report just based on your family. That pic of your dad with the pipe is classic. Reminds me of my grandfather who often fished with a pipe as well. Pics of the kids are all great. That laker your mom has is one heck of a fat fish! What did it weigh?

Cheers!

That Laker was about 17lbs I believe. It's nice to see Cold Lake producing those healthy Lakers.

Dad doesn't get too far from his pipe when he's fishing. I gave it a try a few years ago and I was greener than that pike.

Thanks for the comments. I laugh when I see that pic of my daughter holding that Mickey Mouse rod. It is the only rod she would use. I think the Rapala I had tied on was worth more than the rod.

I didn't make it up to Seibert as I had planned. I'll try again in August.

Chet

NDN,

She did catch a couple more but she got tired of reeling and mostly just wanted to "pet" them after we landed them.

First of all good job with the kids chet,,, thats what its all about.. Remember the family that fishes and hunts together stays together...
Second of all good job on the fish,,, I love the big laker,, as you may remember from some of my previous posts I love chasing Lakers and that is one fine specimen... That spoon you're daughter is holding the Walleye up with is one of our top producers as far as spoons go for Lakers.....
Keep up the good work with the family....

Hey Chet;

Great pics. Where abouts on Moose Lake were you having luck? We have a boat docked there but only been out a couple times so far. Still looking for the Walleye.

Our Cottage is at Bonnyville beach and I fish a fair bit right in front of it. The shoreline there seems to fish well on the evenings when there has been a west or northwest wind througout the day, which probably pushes Walleye food along the shore. There is no significant structure there but if the Walleye are hanging out it seems like they are there to feed. Other than that, almost all of the major points in the lake have decent Walleye holding structure off of them. I usually try a jighead tipped with a minnow or a floating jighead tipped with a leach and a sliding sinker above it and fish it at a bunch of different depths on the point to see where the Walleye are hanging. Good Luck!

Chet
