Took a couple of days off work and headed North to a little lake I know for some spec fishing and get the boat out.
Pouring rain Saturday evening but we still went to check things out even missing my rain gear. I got three nice specs on bright spinners smaller size but big enough to cast from a boat.
Monday we took the 4 year old with us on his first big boy fishing trip (kept him good the night before). He caught his first fish all by himself. Picked the lure cast the lure and reeled his fish in himself. Sunglasses and a hood are considered safety equipment now.
Monday was all worm and float for me, anyone who's taken a kid can understand that. He liked to cast all day and it was his day so cast away little one and I sat with a float and worm. Used a tiny tiny piece of worm about 6ft down and within minutes a fish would be nibbling.
You had to set the hook because we were joking they were taking the split shot and running because until we started setting a hook they always took the float for a trip and would got off.
Monday we got into about 30 nice fish in about four hours of rain rain and more cold rain.
We kept a couple but we did the check to see if they were female and none were when they got cleaned at home base.
This fish is on the slightly bigger side of average that we were catching.
And while we were packing up to head home he was still on the bank casting.
