I finally got my boat motor up and running and I can hang the canoe up for a while. I took my 5 year old daughter out Monday morning (7-30-07) for the first trip and we caught hundreds of perch before trying for some cats. I finally got a cat that was over 5 pound while she was with me. We caught a 12.5 and a 13 pounder. She was excited to help her daddy reel in the big fish. I'm always telling her how big of fish I catch and it was cool to she her face as we brought in those two fish. It was the best fishing trip of the year so far thanks to her excitement.
