Prompton Saturday afternoon
« on: February 08, 2016, 11:33:12 AM »
Got out  this past weekend with the old man and a member of our hunting club to **prompton** dam on Saturday fished mid-day as the old man dosent like to get up too early , there was 7in of ice but the Shores were weak.at then end of the day the old man went threw at shore up to his knees soaked ! He wasent too happy about that ! Caught plenty of gills some pushing 10in but they all went back this time. Also caught were some pickerel ,perch,and smallmouth bass and a nice bullhead . It was a good time , and stopped at that Italian place on the waymart corners in town  , good eats .













How am I suppose to be old and wise if I'm not young and crazy ?

And on another note . There were guys running dogs for coyotes from the parking lot . They let the dogs run across the ice to the other side and we're watching with satellite GPS trackers on the dogs and binoculars.  Then there was some howling and they ran across the ice  also to see if the dogs cornered one . Heard some shots but they didn't drag one across the ice in the way back so maybe they missed? Still cool to watch !

Yes - nice variety to the catch - looks like a good day.

And good advice Chez.  Wish I could have a couple more fishing trips with my dad.

My dad cant fish ANYMORE..Blind in 1 eye,,,BAD BACK,FALLING a LOT too .im lucky he can drive a bit...
I wish I took him with me more than I did.
MY 2 sons spent a lot of time with him when they were growing up.
He luved their company,now they want to be with their friends.
He comes to my house every sunday morning for breakfast...
First thing he ask is,,How you do fishing yesterday...

He luved to fish the DELAWARE for EYES...
He wouldent go ,,unless we had LAMPREY EELS for bait.
WE allways did our best to have a few LAMPREY EELS..
HE LUVED ALSO TO GO FOR GILLS IN THE SPRING..
HE wanted 100 gills for the year.!0 filletes in a bag..20 bags of fish for the year...
Thatsall he kept...
I get him his GILLS anymore....He luvs to eat them..
I kill a deer every year for him now...
First one I kill is my dads.
He cant hunt anymore now either...
Its a sin...You couldn't get him out of the woods,when he was healty..
A few weeks ago I shot 2 rabbits..1 for me and 1 for him..
Its sucks to see a man that loved to hunt and fish so much,,not be able too anymore.
I show him all the pics I take...He looks foreward to my adventures every sunday morning at BREAKFAST..
I hope I die before I cant do what I love anymore....
Sorry I went into this on this topic,But I hope you guys spend as much time with your dads,as you can....The hell with your friends,,take your dad as much as you can....He wont allways be there.Youll allways have time for your friends..
GOOD JOB KID :)

Thanks for sharing Chez.  It's a shame that your pop can't get out any more but I'll bet he enjoys hearing about your adventures.

Nice story chez. And your right the hell with your friends enjoy the time with your dad. Mine pasted 6 yrs ago, he loved the Delaware river. He was a fly tier and sold the to most of the local bait shops. Last time I took him to the Delaware he could barley walk, I got him out to his spot, and boy he wiped my butt. He landed 10 trout and 2 were over 20 inches. Wish I could stand in that river with him again.

I called my dad today to check on him like i allways do..He didnt sound good.I asked what was wrong he said nothing.I said ok....
so i went to check on him...   He lives in Suscon in our old house.He looked like he fought Rocky when i got there.He gave me a Pbr,,,he keeps a 30 on hand for me....I said what the F**k,happened to you???
He replys i got up at 2 am to look at the snow,i seen 7 deer in the yard and went to turn the spot lite on them and slipped on the hardwood floor.He was black and blue from top to bottom.I wanted to take him to geisinger to get checked out,,and he told me to Get the hell,going.lol.
hes a tuff old bugger...i know i wont have him much longer,so i spend as much time as possible with him now...
i only tell these stories,for the young guys on the site and we hsve a bunch of them....
Spend as much time with your Dad as possible.
Some day,they wont be there for you to take....
AS MY GOOD FRIEND KP.WOULD SAY...
               END OF STORY.

Chez, I live right on the Delaware and have some good walleye spots with easy access. I would be more than happy to have you 2 here come this spring for some walleye fishing. No lampreys needed, got some stuff that works "almost" as well. Just PM me sometime if you want to get your dad on some walleyes here.
Nice job on the fish kid and dad.
Stay Safe.......WHEN IN DOUBT ,  DON'T HEAD OUT
