Captain Dumbass said...

Woot! Way to go, Dakoda. I've never caught a fish before.

jerlyn said...

U really looked like you knew what you were doing. So cool, I've never caught a fish. Bet your arms
were tired. Good sized fish, did
you throw it back or eat it?
Glad to have you back posting again.
We went up the Gondola ride at
Whistler which zooms you between 2 very high mountains. THe freakiest
one was one that you had to hike
to after getting off gondola.
It was just a chair with a bar across and it went straight up!
We went over ice fields and giant rock cliffs, Grandpa didn't like it, but I loved it.

jerlyn said...

Grandpa Jerry is impressed. I used to love fishing. When the fish first strikes your fishing lure, it really pulls hard, doesn't it!
It looks like a Brook Trout. Glad you put it back in the water, so it can go back down to Bikini Bottom and have a Crabby Patty with Spongebob and Patrick.

otin said...

Looks like a trout!!!!I just keep catching sharks, they are fun to catch, but you get tired of them after a while!!!

Irish Gumbo said...

Excellent work, lad! Looks like a trout.

The last time I caught a fish, I dropped the rod in the water. Looks like you did a better job!

Kat said...

Nice fish ya got there! Congratulations!

mo.stoneskin said...

And then you ate it right?

I've caught about 2 fish in my life, and I wasn't allowed to eat them :(

natasha the exile on Mom Street said...

Fabulous job!

My son is looking over my shoulder and he is sooooo impressed with your fish.

Guess I'll be taking him fishing soon!

Michele said...

That's a mighty fine looking fish you caught there! Congrats!

DeeMarie said...

Great catch!!! Way to go. :)

wendy said...

dude.. you got the makings of an awesome fisherman.. and I should know, I used to be one.

Keep doing it. Soon the fish'll see you coming and say "whoa, there's Dakota.. run!" (...or swim... you know what I mean)

Just make sure you're having fun. That's the best part.

wendy said...

Dude.. spelled your name wrong. Sorry, Dakoda.

next round of bait is on me. :)

Hit 40 said...

My son wants to start a blog too. He is at camp this weekend. When he comes back on Wednesday, I will help him set one up. Then, he can follow you.

He also likes to play music. He plays the guitar and the saxophone. Plus, he is a fast swimmer.

Have a good week. We will be back later to say hello again and to follow.

A Mom on Spin said...

Great blog, Dakoda . . . and great fish! I especially mean the little guys swimming up on the right. How'd you do that???

Cape Cod Gal said...

Excellent fish! Good goin'! You'll be ready for a shark tournament in no time!!

Wicked Step Mom said...

Great fish! I remember my first one. It was a Blue Gill (a pan fish that is blue with a little gold on the belly). I was using a bobber off of the dock. I was so excited, that it swallowed the hook.

Me, You, or Ellie said...

Did you eat it?

Ellie

cfoxes said...

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

Congratulations on your catch! That's great. I only manage to catch tiny fish.

IB said...

Good on ya mate. Nice catch!

Grant said...

Nice fish.

Middle Aged Woman said...

Dude! You're a writer! I am a sixth grade teacher, so I know. When you go back to school this year, be sure and tell your teacher you have a writing gig! Awesome fish!

Middle Aged Woman said...

Oh yeah, Uncle Chad knows a GREAT bait shop, BTW.

Em said...

Wow!!!

My 6-year-old son wants to know what you used for bait. He uses hotdogs in the pond behind our house. We catch some cool things, but nothing that big.

Congratulations!

Sprite's Keeper said...

Nice work, Dakoda!
Now you get to start telling people the fish was "THIS BIG!" :-)

L.R. M-J said...

Holy Fish Canoli! That's awesome :) I have a whole pond full of carp & trout and we can't catch a single one...so, if you're ever in France (where some crazy Norwegian-Americans bought a place--that's us!) & want to do some fishin'...come on over!!
Keep up the good work and you'll never starve....by the way, how'd it taste?

Cinnamon said...

Woo-hoo! Awesome catch!
:) Robin

Dana's Brain said...

Isn't it a great feeling to catch a fish? I've managed it a couple of times and it's always exciting.

I hope you catch many more! Great job!

PS - I love the song "Down with the Sickness" too!

The Dental Maven said...

Give me back that filet of fish, give me that fish...

ChurchPunkMom said...

WOW! That is one awesome fish! Way to go!

Carolyn...Online said...

Dear Dakoda, Please don't read your uncle's bad blog name. You are only 10 after all! And GREAT job landing that fish. My daughter is 9 and she loves to fish too.

MahoneyMusings said...

Chris said...

Congratulations! Your uncle mentioned you caught your first fish. Very cool!

I live in Utah with my three sons, Parke [11], Duke [9] and Redmond [3] and they LOVE to fish. They've never caught one like you did though. I'll have to show them your exciting post!

Keely said...

Nice job, bud! Did you throw it back or fry it up for breakfast?

James (SeattleDad) said...

Impressive Fish Dakoda! I can't wait until I take my son fishing so he can catch his first fish too. He is only 2 years old so it will be a couple of years from now. I hope it's as big as yours.

Keep it up. The fish fear you!

Mrs. C. said...

Fabulous fish, young man! I hope you got to eat it too.

And good on ya for wearing your life jacket; I work with the beach patrol and surf rescue here and we see WAY too many people who get in trouble around water because they won't put one on.

♥ Braja said...

So the fish died?

lol...just kiddin'.....

♥ Braja said...

I caught a marlin once. It was in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Australia. You had to be strapped to the boat cos the marlins are real fighters, and they're big. This sounds like one of those made-up fishing stories doesn't it? Aren't all fishing stories made up?

Joanie M said...

Great catch, Dakoda!

Ms. Salti said...

Good job on your first fish, dude! I hope you freed him from the net! Did you let him go or eat him for dinner?

Mrs OMG Pregnant said...

WOW check you out! you look like a pro! good work!

sassy stephanie said...

NO WAY! That is WAY bigger than anything I have ever snagged! Awesome!

The Mister said...

What a catch! WAY bigger than the first fish I caught. Mine was practically a gold fish.

kendrasue said...

Awesome job!

gimmethejuice said...

surprised mom said...

Great job! I hope you had a great time! I've never fished before. Maybe I'll give it a try!

otin said...

The way that pole was bending, he must have put up a big fight!

Casey said...

That is one cool fish, you look like an expert fisherman in those pictures too!

I stopped by from your uncle's blog to say hello. You've got one strange (but cool) uncle.

Lisa said...

What a great job you did on the fish! I don't like fishing, but maybe one day I will try it out. I don't think I could do as good a job as you did though!

The Peach Tart said...

WeaselMomma said...

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Awesome! Looved your photos, it was like being there in teh boat with you.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

I'm impressed! I've only been fishing a few times and I've never managed to catch anything. Takes patience (and okay - maybe some skill). Good work!

Landshark said...

Fishing's a big deal down here in Texas, so I salute your efforts in a major way!! Congratulations, dude!

cIII said...

That's a fine Fish, D.

A fine fish, Indeed.

Well done.

Krystal said...

okay - you are braver than me. I could not do that. Fish scare me - I only like them in fish tanks.

Good job bud!!! Soon we will be seeing you on the Fishing Hall of Fame...keep it up!!!

Employee No. 3699 said...

Julie said...

Very nice! My daughter would be jealous. What kind of fish is it?

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

You're like the little Old Man and the Sea, like Ernest Hemmingway!

Did you keep it? Did you eat it? Or did you throw it back? (oops - I just read someone else's comment and it looks like you threw it back)

Congratulations on a great catch! Woo hoo!

- Margaret

That is one awesome fish! Great job on the catch! Did you eat him? He looks pretty tasty! :)

Mama Dawg said...

Dude, that's a HUGE fish. My daughter has been fishing for a few years now and has never caught a fish as big as that.

Way to go!

Mama Badger said...

Thank you for wearing a life jacket. A fish that size could pull you right in!

He looks tasty. Did you eat him or mount him?

LiteralDan said...

I've never caught a fish that big-- you must have a natural talent. Way to go!

DC Urban Dad said...

Geez you got a lotta comments here. Way to go on the fish. Did you throw it back or did you eat it?

K a b l o o e y said...

You ROCK, kid. That's one more fish than I ever caught (because no one ever took me fishing. I'm going to go cry now.... ) You play the bass too??
What, are you trying to get every single girl in elementary school? Is that really fair, Dakoda?

Paper Pursuits Fashion & Design Print Collectibles said...

Hi Dakoda,

That's a nice looking fish. You did a good job! I hope you can catch me a fish too someday.

Lucia (Uncle Chad's sister-in-law)

TechnoBabe said...

Great photos. Reminded me of the one and only time my father and mother and brother and I went fishing together. I tried to cast from the boat and threw my rod and reel into the lake. My father was not happy.
So for you to have such a good experience really makes me smile.

jerlyn said...

so when do we get the next post?
