Take time to take your kids fishing

Posted: August 24, 2012 - 6:00pm

I get asked all of the time, “Do your kids like to fish?” My typical answer is yes, but they probably don’t get out as much as one would think.

Fishing is my job and at the end of a long day, sometimes the last thing I want to do is fish. But tonight I did. Mac and I headed over to a small lake that we like to fish for bass. We borrowed Mike and Julie’s canoe (thanks guys) and paddled back into bass country. For the first 45 minutes things were slow but right before dark the Scum Frogs were getting blasted! And like I had warned Mac, when you least expect it, expect it. He wasn’t as dialed in to his bait as much as I was but it didn’t necessarily matter because we both got hit numerous times from bass and pike and neither one of us landed a fish. But it was the most gorgeous night and I got to spend a little time with my little guy. YOLO!
