I've taken Ncraft150 Jr. on many bluegill trips in the past and today he graduated to bass. We only fished for a couple hours, but we had 4 fish with the biggest just under 3 lbs. Pretty exciting for a 5 year old. He doesn't want to fish for bluegill any more. You should have seen him when on the second cast the big one hit. Thanks to the guy from the ODNR that gave Lil Ncraft a fish identification booklet and took some pics for us.
