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'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
