Well I finally had some time off,to think about going fishing.On a cold and rainy saturday afetnoon I asked my 9 year old dauther if she wanted to go fishing tomorrow.She had already made plans for sunday to play with her friends.Well to my surprise she says she would love to go fishing with me and started calling her friends to cancel her previous arrangement. Off we go on sunday for a pike fishing contest,she's the one who said so.
What a day we had,the small jacksfish were bitting with good intentions.I was being givin a "clinic" on how to hook them. This was great,dad and his princess fishing on a sunday afternoon.I could not be any prouder.She did catch and released 26 pike, beating me on the count... and on the longest one 31 1/2inches. She thanked me for spending time with her and a great day on the water. Wow!!! I had a blast seeing a young person enjoy fishing for an afternoon,and now having these memories for her and i forever.
Take a child fishing the rewards are great.
