    Well, we finally got my daughter caught up with my son.
    She still wants a flathead, but she got this 3# channel last night.
    Must have been hungry, because a third of the live bluegill was still sticking out of its mouth when I released it. In fact, the hook was never stuck in the cat, just in the bait!

    She sure dose! My kids love to go fishing, even though its hard to get my line wet while there with me! Its a lot more fun seeing them light up with joy and letting them know how proud i am of them,no matter how big the fish is.Ive yet to top the bass my 7yr old son caught,and hope i never do!!!!!!

    Nicely done Claire! Don't feel bad about not catching a Flathead, I'm still looking for my first one and I'm a lot older than your dad.
    Keep fishing young lady and you'll enjoy the sport for a life time.

    Fine job Claire. I feel her pain, although I've caught flatheads, I'm dying to catch my first Blue cat. :sad2:

    With a great dad like you, she'll be getting that flathead in no time.
