Isabella, Anthony, and Andrew are officially fish killers! :clap:

I showed them how to cast a few times and from there they were whoopin on 'em! I just had to keep reminding them that you can't run next to a pond. I worked the net and gave pointers, they did a great job on their own. They only lost one spinner between all three of them all day, I was very impressed.
We all had a blast. Great summer day and the trout were biting pretty well and same with the bluegill. We saw a couple 10lb plus carp and some catfish in the same ballpark. They weren't interested in anything we had to offer though.

The girl of course whooped the boys butts, Isabella got twin 17" FAT trout! Fat enough she wanted help holding up her stinger!

Thanks! I was impressed with that color for sure. Those fish must have been all over the crawdad population or something.

Where - In a pond :D. when - this afternoon. The trout should be biting in all the lakes if you can find where they're hiding. Head to your favorite spots.

Bait? nah, I got these guys started off right, with spinners of course :)

To take young un's fishing is an opportunity that should never be squandered. The look of joy on their faces shows to me that whatever it took to get them there, was worthwhile.
As a child, my family enjoyed going up to Twin Lakes, Wa.(the one by Lake Roosevelt).
Beautiful place in the mountains, fishing was usually pretty good in those days.
My childhood memories of that place are some of the most treasured memories I have. Indeed, my very first memory of life is at that lake, I was 3 or so, and I just caught a frog.
Sounds like you are building some good memories there.
Bravo Zulu.

Thanks guys! They had a lot of fun and have been begging non stop to go back. When we got home yesterday they asked for some rods so that they could practice casting (and did so until it was too dark to see). Those fish are in real trouble now :)

Nice Job Osmosis! My first nephew isn't even a year old yet so I have to wait a while before I can make some smiles like that. Pictures like those remind me of the simple pleasure of catching a fish, any fish, any where. Those kids have a great uncle, keep up the good work!
