Fun Times

I finally got some days off in the week while the kids are out of school for Easter break and my little boy asked if I'd take him fishing. I figured I would make it easy and run back in the marsh and see if we couldn't catch some reds and flounder. We eased on back to a deep drain where the tide was still going out and set up shop. My little boy is 5 and ate up with hunting and fishing as much as I was at an early age. He insisted on using his new baitcaster that he got for Christmas, but I encouraged he use his spinner that was set up for fishing the harder currents. Junior took the front of the boat and began fishing the drain and it wasn't long before he caught a couple little redfish (even got one with no spots). After about an hour and lots of begging to use his baitcaster, I finally caved and rigged him up. The tide had slowed down enough and would allow him to roll a 1/4 oz jig through there and get to the bottom. It didn't take long and junior caught his first saltwater species on his new baitcaster, a nice fat flounder. To say he was excited is an understatement! All the practice casting in the pond paid off and he can now use his new rod and reel in the boat. Seeing his enthusiasm took me down memory lane remembering how cool it was when my dad would let me fish with my baitcaster when I was around his age. We ended up with a good mess of flounder and redfish. I wouldn't trade these times for anything!
