Grandsons' fishing vacation

The whole family rented a house on Lake LBJ in Kingsland Tx for a few days. The boys are now almost 5 and 8 and wanted to go somewhere to fish. This is the second time we rented this place and it produced some nice and plentiful bluegills and a few small cats and two turtles. The almost 5yr old caught two turtles this time as well as his share of bluegill. This older brother kept everyone busy taking off fish and his dad caught a catfish. This is second time fishing and his biggest fish. I…See More

Grandson's first fish

Took my two grandsons fishing the other day.  Second time for the six year old, Jacob and the first time for the nearly 4 year old, Alexander.  It was their first time to catch anything. Alexander caught a small soft shell turtle and one bluegill and Jacob caught two bluegills.  They were very happy little boys.  We spent about two hours at a small city pond here in Austin, best of times.…
