Me and the boy did the tourist thing this weekend. 3 days in canada, with 1 full day fishing. We hit the Royal Air Force Museum in Trenton, ON and CN Tower in Toronto. Loose Moose for lunch, and that wisconsin poundin given to michigan.

Didnt lift a rod. It was all boy. His total weight for 8 fish was 77.4 lbs. A 14-6, 12-10-, 12-4, 11-9, 10-0, 5, 5, and 5. We kept the 3 five pounders for dinner, and released the rest. All fish from about 15 feet in 25 FOW. No gill damage, no bleeders, all fat clean, powerful fish. All went down very fast (Fun watching em on the HDS8 locator- like 10 seconds and right to 25 FOW bottom - I swear steeper than a downrigger ball..).

Gettin some more pictures shortly. This is the 10-0, I think. Too many fish.

Love the smile on your son! He accomplished in one weekend what most guys probably won't in a lifetime. Not to mention he did it all with his old man. Very nice!

Congrats to YOU and your son.
Think about it like this Mark, even if you can't crack 14, at least your kid did!

I gotta ask, what the hell is Loose Moose?

We fished with Sheldon Hatch, a former PWT'er and THE guide on Bay of Quinte. There are few others other there, but the way he relates to kids and people is really top notch. Very focused on the details, which I like, and as you know, can be the difference in walleye fishing.

The Loose Moose is a pub/grill in Toronto, right down the block from the CN tower. Nice place.

Still an amazing story! 14- 6 lbs!!! :allah

Thanks for sharing the info. It would be a superb choice for any fisherman, especially with their son/daughter to follow up on.

Btw- I figured The "Loose Moose"- was a restaurant and not a description of the food - Catchy name :lol:
