Caught monday afternoon on Prior Lake, my son is 5 and was using a leech and bobber. The first thing out of his mouth when he got home was, "Mom, my hands smell like fish!"

He is getting pretty good at watching his bobber and setting the hook. Casting is a different story though.......

That's awesome, picks! My hands smell like fish. laugh

Everything really seems right in the world when you bring one of your kids home from a trip, and they recount the whole day to mom.

I love the look on his face. You won't regret getting him involved in fishing, especially when he is older, and able to drive the truck when you trailer your boat!!!

Get him a spinning reel and let him cast a sinker in the yard..you'd be suprised how kids just pick that stuff up.

Great photo, I love the way he is lipping the bass. Looks like a future pro. Good habit of having the life jacket on also.

Yeah he busted me on the way to our secret spot, I actually stopped the boat and put my life jacket on as well......

I don't think I will go with the spinning rod quite yet, I just need to find a bobber stop that works with spincast reels, anyone have any good ones that don't tangle up?

Looks like he's having a blast!

I'm expecting my first child around x-mas time. Still trying to find a way to strap a car seat into my bassboat smile He/she will be my new best fishing buddy!

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
