Surprised my son!

Recommended Posts

Three years ago on a warm day in March I took my son Landen to the River.  We were fishing and filming that day and catching some pretty good fish.  He was 7 but I already had him throwing a 7 foot spinning rod.  Had him rigged up with a grub just trying to catch some numbers.  Then low and behold he hangs into a beast, it fought so hard he wanted me to take the rod but I told him he could do it.   After a 10 minute battle or so he landed a Certified Dandy!  I was most proud that he willingly  wanted to release that fish back into the river.   

Last year after sharing the video that aired on local TV of Landens catch, one of our sponsors Shawn Winters at SNT Taxidermy  contacted me and said if I got him some pics and fishes length he’d be glad to do him a replica of it.  So 3 years later,  tonight I got to surprise Landen with it and my wife recorded it.  Can’t help but grin as I watch his excitement!   I was most proud of him that day for not even hesitating to release that Ozark Dandy back into the that beautiful river, now he has a replica to remind of of that great day with ole Dad!  God Bless my friends, I’m a happy dad tonight!

That is so awesome buddy!  I remember when he caught that one.  What an awesome trophy for him, I'm sure with his skills there will be many more to come.  Tell him nice job.  That's bigger than any smallies I've ever caught lol

Great story and a deserved trophy! You and your son should be very proud! Congrats to you both! You're instilling great values to your son. I hope that he is able to go to jigfest some year would love to fish with you again and with your son.
