I’ve been really busy with the wedding plans, but find time in-between to teach my 8 year old the basics. First taught him how to cast , then how to cut the night-crawler in half (dull pocket knife) and thread it on the hook. We began at 5am, according to the feeding graphs 6am would be a great time to catch fish at. So we filled up with gas, breakfast, and coffee and juice. Met Nate (My Fishing Partner) then headed of to lake Arrowhead, but not our usual spot cause that was weeded over something terrible we went to a new location i had discovered while exploring one day. set up camp and got my son fishing ASAP. I wasn’t long before he was pulling in Perch, Sunfish, and Bull Head.
He had so much fun he only stopped to play with his army-men when the fish really stopped biting. When the bite was on he was at the front line catching fish before we could get out of our chairs. He reeled in (acording to the new Masters Of Angling program Vermont has started) a Trophy sized Bull head. I’m so proud, he will be receiving a certificate for his trophy catch.
Now he’s ready for his next fishing adventure before he goes back home to Nebraska for the school year It’s These fishing trips that will make an impression for a lifetime. Take a kid fishing and inspire them!
