    my 6yr old boy nate got his first nice channel, 06-04-06 at a lake in northern indiana. it was great, wife and i had to pull anchors up. that channel gave him a run everytime it would get close to the boat, he and the cat was wore out and we got it netted. it's great, he seen the reel peel line out, sett the hook and got it in. this spring i posted here the 16" crappie of his, now his first channel, think he's on his way to becoming a good fisherman. i was as happy to see him get that cat as i would if i would have hooked a big cat. thanks for reading, there's a happy dad and kid in the boc.
