9-Year-Old Girl Reels In Monster Muskie On Lake Of The Woods

That’s what it’s all about.

There’s nothing like reeling in an absolute monster, but it might be ever better watching your kids do it. Granted, my daughter ain’t even a year old yet, but I go bonkers when she puts this yellow ball inside this hole in a wooden box (great toy from Target by the way).

I can only imagine my joy when she hooks her first muskie.

For former Pro-Bowl NFL lineman, Joe Thomas, that was exactly the scenario last weekend.

According to Outdoor Life, Joe was fishing out on Minnesota’s Lake of the Woods with his 9-year-old daughter Logan when she hooked into a big ol’ muskie.

Lake of the Woods is a massive lake that straddles Minnesota and Canadian provinces Ontario and Manitoba. The largest lake in the United States that’s not a Great Lake, it’s known for some of the best fishing in the world, especially when it comes to walleye, but muskie, pike, bass, perch… LOW has it all.

Dad was holding the camera and losing his mind in the background:

Look at this beast:

Retirement looks good on you, my man.
