Something about watching my child fishing that makes me proud. Even though the first five shook the hook, he still was some what interested in fishing. I'm not going to lie, the first fish he hooked I almost grabbed the rod from him. Came out of the water twice and damn was it a good fish. Anyway, he finally had one stick and by the time it was all said and done, he was having so much fun. Fishing went from a little boring to super exciting in a few minutes for him. He finally landed a solid, hard fighting fish. Wish I took a pic but two boys, 8 and 4, in the boat landing a fish is enough commotion. At least nobody fell in. Watching the excitement of reeling in a fish on my kids face is awesome!
