The wife and I decided to take my son out on Griggs yesterday evening, hoping to put him on his first fish! Although he's been out on the boat with us since he's been around a year old (gotta start em young!) this was the first time we whipped out the zebco snoopy rig.

He was on the gills from the start, and even boated a small bass in the mix! It was AWESOME. He's still this morning talking about the "big fish" he caught! He caught countless gills (a coupla chunks too) and we had a blast. Talk about a proud father :D

Here's a pic of his first fish ever! Can't wait to get him out there again.

Great pic. Brings back a flood of memories with my 19 yr old son. I see your rod/reel in the picture, but what was the boy using? :D

Awesome Shake!

Who was really teaching who? The smile on your face looks like you were really happy to have someone show you how to catch a fish. He looks happy to have helped you out. The rod is in your hand.

Congrats on the first one, you'll both have great memories.

Stan,

I have two granddaughters, 8 & 10, that live with me. They LOVE to fish. Do you want to borrow them for a few months :D

Nice picture! From the looks of things, you'll have opportunities for many more.

Snoopy rods are great for kids. Mine have all worn their's out. BTW, Grand River Tackle holds a Snoopy Rod Steelhead Tournament every year. ONLY Snoopy rods allowed. Fun to watch that fight!!!

Congrats on the great time and tahnks for sharing.

Great fish, pix, rod. My kids 1ST was on a Scooby-Doo rod. A coupla-pound catfish from Indian Lake when he was 5. Where on griggs were you? We were there yesterday also & didn't catch (or see or feel trace of) any fish until 7:30, north of Hayden Run we found some small cats. I knew there are gills & bass in there but I've never found them!

Thanks for the kind words guys...I think I'm gonna print this thread and responses and tuck it away with the picture...wait until he's 16 or so and decides he can take his old man (haven't we all at one point?) and pull this out to remind him that I'm still his Dad ;)
