It just doesn’t get any better.
Going fishing with the young lad for a day is always great for creating lasting memories regardless of the result for the crowd caught. That doesn’t mean dads aren’t hopeful that their child will hook onto a fish so big and spectacular that they will remember it and remain hooked for life.
It is every fisherman’s dream to catch such a fish, but experiencing it with his child is what a father can dream of.
It just so happens that this family had this experience while spending a day fishing in the lake. An 8-year-old boy and his father were fishing in their boat on Minnesota’s Mille Lacs Lake when the kid’s rode started whaling. ]
A big fish began to pull out the line while the father rushed to help his son…
As the father trains and helps his child, you can feel the excitement build as they get closer to the boat.
When the father reaches for your net, you know that the child is pumped.
“Do we have him?”
You can feel the relief as he hustles this monster into the net and into the boat.
“We got him!”
When the couple jokes back and forth with excitement, it melts a person’s heart and takes them right back to childhood with their father. That’s what it’s all about.
Dad makes him hold up his big ole catch. Weighing in at over 50 pounds, Musk is a lot taller than the 8-year-old, who has trouble holding him up for a photo.
I bet the picture will be on the wall for a while.
Little boy goes crazy watching Muskie eat a muskrat
you gotta love it
A child who sees nature at work and just gets excited about it… it’s no secret why a love of nature generally starts at a young age.
And if it’s that cool, it’s even better.
A muskrat is not exactly a small animal. It’s not big by any means, but it’s big for any fish it’s after. They can weigh up to 5 pounds, but it’s not often that fish prey on animals this large.
Usually they would target another fish but this Muskie saw the opportunity and decided he was well eaten today.
The video begins with a boy going completely insane when they notice a rather large musk musk with a muskrat in its mouth at White Bear Lake, just outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
“Okay, so this giant, I don’t even know what a bloody muskrat is eating right now.”
“Dude, it’s under the dock. Holy crap!”
Innocence and pure joy.
I think these guys need to tie up some bigger bait and try to catch one of these monsters.
The musk rat swims back and forth waiting for the muskrat to take its last breath. You don’t see him swallow it, but I can say with some certainty that this muskrat hit its creator with the grip the big predatory fish had on him.
There is one fishing memory that these young bucks will forever remember and that will likely keep them running back in the water for years to come.
Nature is great, even if it’s a little violent.
