    took my youngest boy fishing today for his birthday (he just turned 8). went to the carlyle spillway figuring we could get him on some gills or white bass, and mebbe get a cat or two in the process. after a slow start and dodging rain drops he wound up out fishing me and my wife. he totaled out with 27 gills (on wax worms) one 5lb drum (again on wax worm) and two cat fish under 2lb (on cut gill). he informed me on the way home that next time he didn't want to fish for gills. he just wanted some big old catfish. no pics (wife dropped the camera)

    Those are birthday memories that last a lifetime. And certainly will last longer than a memory of the latest nintendo! :smile2:

    What a great gift you've given your little boy, John.
    Happy Birthday to him :smile2: and congratulations on his great catch!

    P.S. We used to use those wax worms up in Michigan and the bluegill sure do love 'em. They were my favorite bait cuz I didn't end up with crawler-goo under the fingernails... lol.
