Bassin on my b day

I survived another year of crazy... Saturday we woke up, had some breakfast and then hit basspro for a bit to pick up a new hoodie wife bought me.  Grabbed some more soft plastics while we were there to go beat on the bass again.

Got a late start but my older two daughters still have the fish whispering down pat and the oldest hooked up on her first cast.  Followed by my middle one shortly after.  Nothing huge, but makes me proud they are catching all on their own, and fishing by feel too which for me took way longer to really get the hang of when I was young.

It was about 90 so they didn't last too long.  Wife and kids headed in and I got a few hours of quiet time to chase them on my own.  Caught a couple solid fish and saw a big ol girl that would probably go 6lbs easy in the back end of the pond.

I will say I'm starting to be a true believer in HUK gear.  I have a few fishing shirts to keep the sun off me, but I picked up their vented hoodie and it's just a great clothing item I wish I would of found sooner.  Was hot in direct sun, but had a breeze and I stayed nice and cool even with my hood up to protect my bald head lol.

My dad had 9 spots on his hands and arms burned of recently so I am trying to be more cautious when out in the sun.

Overall was a great day too spend with the wife and kiddos.

I have three daughters and grandaughters  that fish, started them all early and it paid off. I like the Huk gear as well. I wear it more than anything else. Need to find some summer colors, the darker ones are too hot to wear right now.

Thats awesome!  Gotta plant those seeds!  I am a lucky man in that at least my oldest will fish all day with me.  She's a bit of a tom boy.  The other two will hang for a little bit, but my oldest gets mad at em like I do.  

I am new to Huk gear but so far they have exceeded my expectations.  Nice being able to keep the sun off ya.  The hoodies work great as I'm bald so I can keep the sun off my dome.  I have some of the long sleeve shirts too which I like.  The back on that hoodie is vented and stays pretty cool up to about 85 degrees or so.  I also need to shop some lighter colors though.  Beats lathering up in sunscreen.

We know! We've fished with you two😀! And she doesn't like not catching a fish. A girl like her dad!

I bought a long sleeve Huk shirt and hoodie in the Yeti color yesterday so I should be set for now. My oldest grandaughter is 15 and will fish all day with me, the rest will last a couple hours. Grandson is six and will fish for an hour. Then it's time to throw rocks or whatever else a six year old can think of.

Simms and Patagonia have sun shirts in light colors.  Great items.  Hoodies too.  I have several.

My daughter and I could used these on our fishing trip on the 4th. That was a hot one. Wore both of us down. Have my wife looking to get us some new warm weather gear.
