Took my 8 year old son on his first fall trout and turkey hunt last weekend. Turkeys a no go. But trout on the other hand was WOW. He caught his six trout limit Sunday in short order. I mean he caught them . It was not me cast, set the hook and let him reel them in. He did it all. There was a sad note to his story. He had to 18" to his credit. But come Monday evening I spotted a huge trout laying behind a rock. We eased down the bank and he made several casts but just could not get out that far for it. So I cast out his powerbait. Yep good old dad put the bait on target, well if you consider 10' up stream from the fish on trarget, then it was on target. But we kept it there and a few minutes later the trout came up and toke it. This fish jumped 3' out of the wate when it realized it was hook and then made a hard run. Snap and his 20"+ rainbow in full color was gone. My heart just about broke seeing my little guy tear up and then opening cry over missing this big fish. Now it did not help that the fish swam up to us a little while later with his hook and sinker still hanging out of his mouth. But my boy did buck up and go catch his 6th trout of the day for his limit.
