    I had pretty good success yesterday. Me and my 6 year old boy went out really just to test my recent repairs on the ol' Johnson. We got out there about 6 and fished until about 7:30. We managed to land 11 crappie. 6 for me and 5 for the little guy. We used smoke sliders and pearl swimmin minnows. Tried various other colors without any luck at all. For those of you with kids when you taught your kids to use an open face how did you drill it in them to not hold the rod tip up straight in the air? He uses the open face just fine. The only problem is him getting line wrapped around the tip of the pole. I guess maybe it will just come with time. Anyway I may head out today again if I can get the motor figured out. But thats for a different post ;)
     
  2. He may be doing it because it's "heavier" when it's not pointed up. Try weighting the butt so it has more balance.

    Great suggestion. I'll buy him an ultra light!
