Took my 7 year old nephew out for his first day fishing. He had a great time. We ended up catching 50 or more bluegill. He learned how to bait his hook & cast a spinning rod. He was casting like a pro by the end of the day. He caught several fish on his own. Casted it out waited for the bite, set the hook & reeled 'em in. They were in shallow hitting a 1/32 oz tube. I had a great day as well. Gave him the rod & reel combo he was using. When you have 20 or more combo's you don't miss one. Can't wait to take him out again.

Way to go!!! He is at the age where he will probably always remember the trip. Especially catching that many gills. Good to hear the little guy had a fun time.

Congratulations on a great day!

Thanks for sharing your story!

Nice job Ron! He'll be reeling in those big crappies next!

Nothing better than taking a kid out fishing.
