Big brother consoling little sister as she puts distance between her and the bluegill she just landed
These outings can't be all about landing fish; a little exploring has to be added to make it even more interesting.
Bryson and his Mom, made a trip to Smith yesterday, to fish for the bluegill and anything else that would bite the crickets. Bryson is becoming quite a fisher boy, his landing technique is much better than last year. Next year his sister Laelyn will start making the boat trips with us.
The prize of the morning went to Jenny landing this brut using a 7/1/2 ft. microlight rod with matching light action spinning reel spooled with 4lb. test line. Jenny played this catfish to perfection. She has landed catfish with me before using the microlights, but nothing like this one. Bryson did a great job taking the photo. I can't think of a better way to spend a couple of hours early in the morning!
