Tinley’s Pike Hunt-8th Birthday 2020

February 1, 2020
  • Public Memory

Tinley was turning 8 years old.

What did she want to do for her birthday? Go North to Lake City and go Ice fishing on Lost Lake!! Her Daddy’s love for all things outdoors had rubbed off on her and she was hooked. This once frilly girly girl was now asking for camo clothes and fishing lures.

So on a Thursday in early February of 2020 her Dad, Uncle Brenny, and her loaded the truck and headed North to the Sportsman’s Shack.

Panfish weren’t real plentiful on this trip but the Northern were!!

Because of work commitments I didn’t arrive until Saturday morning. Upon my arrival we jumped on the Sno-go and the side by side and began the tour of the tip ups.

Looking ahead we saw a flag up! Tinley with Uncle Bren’s help started retrieving the played out spool.

“Ooh this is a big one” Tinny shouted!

Minutes later Tinley brought in the biggest Pike of the trip!!

Another adventure in the Northwoods ended with dozens of Northern for the freezer.

Northern weren’t the only ones that were hooked!!
