Proud Dad Moment


Recommended Posts

My boy has always liked to go fishing, but up till this week, it's been mostly I hook a fish and let him reel it in, and he throws his zebco with a bobber type stuff. Today he said he wanted to fish with my pole like a big boy. So he used my 7 foot St. Croix with yes folks... a ned rig... :) Well, he got on um good down at a good friend of mine's pond. He casted, worked, hooked and reeled in some good bass and a Dandy redear all on his own. I was throwing a brown and orange one, and caught a few, but he actually outcaught me using a pb and j, and he is 6yo. I was trying to get him to slow down his retrieve until after his 3rd fish I realized I should let him keep on, I sped mine up after that.... He was so excited but not as much as me, I think this summer I'm taking him on the Current with me to smallmouth fish! Today was a milestone I guess you could say, and just wanted to share, he keeps it up he'll be posting reports on here one day!

There's no such thing, as a bad day fishing!

Thanks guys! We went back there this afternoon for a bit, he was wanting to catch a big one that we saw following on of his fish the other day. I think he's hooked!

LRF, I still remember my earliest fishing trips with my dad (our first hunting trips too) They were part of a great childhood and in spite of straying a bit from the flock while I was a typical chuckleheaded teenager I never really lost what I learned out there when I was a boy. I sincerely hope the two of you enjoy a lifetime together on the water, I know that he's going to cherish those memories and I hope they help form that bedrock of values and experiences which will sustain him during the hard times we all face Thanks for doing you part to keep the circle unbroken.
