My Wife and I took the boys out to a private pond that fellow OGF'er Firemurph invited us to. This was my little guy's first trip out fishing. He had his own pool, but he wasn't doing all that good on it. I caught a gill and I let him reel it on his own. He did really great. The bobber was about 30 feet out in front of us, so he got to play the fish a little bit. After he landed it, you would have thought he won the Fisher Price Lifetime Toy Lottery. It's not a whopper of a fish, but it will definitely be a lifetime memory.
