Lil Cortman's New PB
« on: March 20, 2017, 08:05:02 PM »

Took my 3 y/o son out with me on Saturday afternoon to a local pond. Took the jon boat out and fished for a couple hours. He has a little 3' Shakespeare rod and a tiny Bass Pro crappie spincast reel, and I put a little beetle spin type bait on it for him to play around with. He's pretty good at casting for his age and can throw that little thing a solid 20-25' or so. Well we finished up without having caught much and I was loading our gear up in the truck when he asked if he could fish a bit from the bank. I said sure and walked him down away from the boat a little ways and he started casting and reeling away. Suddenly I hear "Daddy I got a fish!". Now he says this whenever he gets hung up or anything feels funny but I looked up and sure enough his rod tip is bucking around. He was just cranking it in with a huge grin on his face. He reeled it in and I lipped it and boy was he happy. A nice little 12" bass or so. I had showed him how to properly lip and hold it so we got some pictures and he put it back in the water. Hard telling who was more proud and happy, him or me. :)

Thanks guys. He is my best fishing buddy even if he doesn't last as long as I would like to. :) He knows how to hold a fish and knows which is a swimbait and a spinnerbait (most of the time). lo

Congrats to both of you!  ~c~

I know that sense of pride. Enjoy it while you can brother because the time will fly before you know it. I remember my boys very first fish like it was yesterday - he's 19 now.  :(  Still my favorite fishing buddy though.   ~sun
