We kick it off with Kelsie and Addie, who joined their dad for an awesome weekend of catching bass, bluegill, crappie, walleye and stripers down at Powell. Steve says the weather was almost as enjoyable as the fishing. They had plans of visiting Goblin Valley State Park on the way back, but Steve says they fishing was so hot, they’ll have to try next time.

Taylor took a trip with her dad to hunt Eastern Turkeys in Missouri. Dad called in this huge tom to 26 yards and Taylor dropped him with her 20 gauge Remington Shotgun. Taylor’s uncle made her carry the 21 pound bird almost a mile and a half back to the car, even though Taylor only weighs in at 56 pounds herself. The tom has a 11 and a half inch beard and over 1 inch spurs, a great first bird.

Dad Ryan and son Riley have been dying to get after some tiger musky this year. Riley had a fish chase his lure and strike three times before he as able to latch into this 40 inch toothy critter. Dad says his son played the fish like a pro and Riley thought it was the coolest thing ever. Ryan say’s it didn’t bother him one bit that his son had out fished the ol man.

For Springbreak Vern took his12 year old son Jayce steelhead fishing on the Clearwater river in Northern Idaho. Persistence paid off when Jayce finally landed this beautiful 32 inch female. Vern says this one steelie made the 10 and a half hour drive worth every mile and hearing your son yell “fish on” is a great moment he won’t forget.
