Back up to the lake again for Fathers Day this year. As soon as the truck was unloaded, lines were in the water to fish the last few minutes of daylight. The weekend had a few great moments. My son caught his first Bass and northern pike, both unassisted. Unfortunately daddy didn have the camera to get a pic of the pike.
I would get up every morning and hit the lake at about 5:30, and by 7:00 I would look over at our dock and see the boy casting his little spinners all by himself - he got up and went fishing with out any provocation, ( im getting teary eyed!)
I would swing by the dock and pick him up so we could finish the morning bite together before breakfast.
the highlight of the fishing was getting lucky enough to catch about 14 crappies, all 10-13 inches on the fly rod, all in about 45 minutes too!!
I know they are not gills, but man are they tasty!
Back up to the lake for Fathers Day again this year. As soon as the truck was unloaded, we headed down to the dock to fish the last bit of daylight. I would usually get out on the lake about 5:30, and by 7 am i would see my boy casting off the dock. The little bugger got up all by himself and decided to go fishing. I would swing by and pick him up in the boat so we could finish fishing the morning bite before breakfast.
Higlights of the weekend were my son catching his first largemouth and northern pike - unassisted!! And a real treat was pulling in about 12 awesome Crappie on the fly rod, all of them 11-13 inches!!!
They aren't gills, but they sure are tasty!!
