    Well I have been telling my son for two weeks now that I was going to buy him a baitcaster. So today I picked him up from school and we went down to our local bait shop to pick it out. He has been taking one of mine out into the field behind the house and practing with it for about two months now, and I believe he can cast it better than the ole man but I am not going to tell him that though.:embarassed: Well I let him pick out what he wanted and I think he made a good choice with the Abu Garcia 6500C3 and as soon as we got home he got out the line and was ready to spool it up. I put it on a 7ft Penn Slammer rod with Berkly big game solar green 30 lb test line . I sure hope he has alot of great fishing with it.

    Congrats to your son. What was he using before the upgrade? Did he catch some good ones with that set up?

    Way to go dad, nice rig. I hope you two make many great memories together. I sure miss the days of fishing and hunting with first, my dad, then later, my son. You can go home, but you can't go back.
