“Dad I got one! “Then disappointment in his voice” I think it’s a pike.” Then “I think I’m snagged”. Rod is bent over and my 7 year old can’t pull it out. I put down my rod and go help. I help pull up on the rod. It is pulling through a weed bed. Then I see the nose of the fish and a green flash. “You still have him! And it’s not a pike!” The big bass went airborne now putting on a show. To my dismay we didn’t bring our net! After a few tense moments we landed this 5 pound 4 oz. largemouth. My own personal best eclipsed by my 7 year old son!
I would love to have more opportunities for my son to do this again!
