Ice fishing season 2021/2022

In recent years the ice fishing season has been fairly slow for my dad and I regardless of which lake we decided to visit. While the 2021/2022 season this year wasn’t particularly amazing either, it was an uptick from the years before which was a welcome change. With the season over (about a month ago actually, I’m just slow with posting things) I took a look back at some photos we thought would be worthy to take.

This was my biggest prize on the year, she weighed exactly 5.00lbs. Over the years I’ve caught some good size walleye, but I can’t recall a recent catch that was this big. Even when we go far up north in Canada to remote areas they’re mostly a bit smaller than this one. Though I admit we don’t weigh every single one we catch.

This was our best day on the ice, which isn’t too shabby considering we only really fish for 5 or 6 hours at a time, sometimes even less. I can’t take much credit for this haul though, my dad caught everything in this picture except for one of the two larger walleye. In my defense, I also did catch another walleye, but it was tiny so I threw it back. Also I’m not entirely sure how a pike found it’s way to the spot but we’ll take it too.

This walleye gets an honorable mention for being the prettiest fish we caught. The picture doesn’t really do it justice, but in the sunlight it was sparkling beautifully. My girlfriend’s daughter said it was a golden fish because of its colour and I can’t disagree.

As much as we do enjoy our father and son ice fishing adventures, we have no problem putting away the rods for the season as it just means we can starting pulling out the golf clubs and hitting the links!

And if you look to the right of the plane, you can see the Eiffel Tower… kinda

I saw this picture a while back, however after reading through the comments section it looks like it was a photoshopped image. When I landed in Paris a few years back, I tried my hand at taking a picture of the Eiffel Tower. But obviously no flight paths go near it, and also the weather was fairly foggy so this was the best I got. After seeing the photoshopped one, I couldn’t help but make this comparison.

These side by side ads

These two ads beside each other caught my eye and made me giggle to myself. These two pictures could easily be used in one of the before and after drug PSAs. Poor Quaker Oats guy really was on a downward spiral, but it looks like it did help him land the lead role in Joker.

Another easy birdie

Short par 5, should be an easy birdie no? But a birdie right off the drive? Hmm. I’m not entirely sure what may have caused these seagulls to flock onto this hole but I think my chances of getting birdie went up. On a side note, on our second shot my dad did actually hit one of them. Fortunately it was when the ball was just bouncing slowly. I did feel bad for the seagull, after it was hit it tried to fly off but wobbled and stumbled on the ground a bit before it could take off. Once it got up in the air it looked fine though.

This brilliant mind

I was browsing the news a while back and this was the freeze frame of a video regarding a protest. I couldn’t help but laugh as it reminded me that old “get a brain morans” picture that made it’s rounds on the internet a long time ago. Frankly I’m surprised that they knew to use “than” as opposed to “then”.
