The great info you supplied to Greg re L. Washington will come in very handy for me this weekend, as I'm taking my son fishing for his 5th birthday in that cove you mentioned above Seward Park. I'll take my 4 weight, but I'll be setting him up with a bobber and bait (and will likely join him if he starts outfishing me). I've got no clue about what to use for bait. I'd realy love to get him a fish or two; any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks. PS: thanks for your kind words about the NFH columns. As near as I can tell, they may qualify you as president, general secretary, and total membership of the fan club.
