Pops and Grandson Bryson on an Afternoon Bluegill Fishing Trip

This past Wednesday my Grandson Bryson and I made a trip to a local pond near our house to fish for some fall bluegill using his spin cast and the red worms he and I dug up in our back yard. As always Bryson was anxious to go with his Pops and see if he could catch a fish for his Uncle JJ. I have found out when I carry Bryson fishing that the trip always evolves around a theme. The last trip was naming the worms and even deciding to carry one home, and not let the fish eat him. Well today’s theme was catching a fish for his Uncle JJ; which eventually lead to catching a fish for his Dad, Mom and his sister Laelyn. I have to say this little guy has an imagination way beyond his years. I am sorry to say I can’t show you guys any pictures for this trip, because I accidentally erased all of them except the one below. Bryson did catch the most bluegill he has ever landed with his Pops and even lost a bass that broke his line. All total we counted around 15 bluegills and the lost bass at the end of the afternoon.
 This is one of the many bluegills Bryson landed while spending the afternoon with his Pops. This may be our last trip for this year, because the weather is getting cooler, but we have the spring and summer next year to look forward to.

As you know, Bill, some of my favorite fishing trips and memory makers is when I take my Grandkids fishing for Bluegill. They are always so much fun. Their excitement with each fish they reel in is what makes me feel like quite the Grandpa. Looks like you and Bryson have the same thing going on. Sorry to hear about your deletion of the other pictures. Would have been great too see!

It will fun to teach him how to land some of the trout on the tailrace. I think he may be a few years away from the fly rod for now. thanks for the comment

There's always next year, and some time for Bryson to come up with more imaginative ideas. :)
