Kids Can Sure Bring Tears Sometimes (Fish Related)
Yesterday evening my 6 year old said he wanted to go fishing. I had a bass tournament Saturday and was cleaning out my boat Monday night and this came out as he watched. I said I have to work tomorrow. He said, "well daddy, you could leave work a few hours early and take me fishing". I stated thinking and figured he was right.
Today I left work at 2:30, hooked up the boat and picked up my son. It rained on and off but that was not that bad as I continued to put crickets on his hook. Later he said, "daddy you are not fishing....why". I said, " Dru, I am just watching and helping you". He then said, "yeah, we are just spending time together, I really like the time we spend together". That was when I almost choked up.
Take a kid fishing next time you get a chance....They are worth it.
Edit because he did catch 4 bream today.

Good story. Makes me want to agree with my Wife and start the "trying" to have kids process.

nice work.....fishing with your kids is great
I took my 7 y.o. son on a float trip Sat/Sun on the John Day River for smallmouth bass.....just him and I. We had a great time.
I also take him to a small stocked pond here in town. It's great to see him enjoy himself like this.

Bumping because my daughter caught her first fish on Sunday:
Spinner with a worm, but a wild Brown keeper for your first fish isn't bad at all! (So jealous)

sweet tipp. My 2.5 year old hauled in a 5 inch perch the other day. You'd have thought it was a trophy of a lifetime he was so pumped. Unfortunately no good pics to share though.
