    went out yesterday evening to scout out some log jambs for the fish off. casey had been wanting me to take him fishin so i grab his tigerspin and check my trap for fresh gills and headed down to the railroad tressel on lafourche. baited up caseys pole and put the gill right at the ledge of thi tressel and he whines his line in within 30 seconds of handing the thang off. "not yet i tell him," but he keeps on reelin sayin "its on there, its on there" well whatya know, he gets a 3lbs flathead. well we headed back to the house with his fish in a cooler full of water, cause i left the camera. so here he is. after the pic we let him go in crew lake which is closer, then went to get a shot of the tressel spot. notice the boc sticker on the side of my truck. got them on both sides. the wife saw it and told me that i was "now offically a redneck" to which my reply was "honey, my neck has always runnith red."

    luv taken him with me when im bank fishin. he stas home if i go out on the boat. hes all over the place. his brother on the other hand is all for fishin when they bitin. but if they aint he's ready to go, so sometimes he chooses to stay home. then if we do catch some fish he gets mad cause he missed it. casey will go anytime anyplace he dont care, as long as we go. my little angler.

    Great way to start them out young like that. Nice fish and nice CPR too. I am sure he will be ready to go the next time! Teach him well and he will remember it for a lifetime. GOOD JOB!

    Congrats to you and Casey on his first flattie. Kids often follow in the parents footsteps and "big" prints are easy to follow. Kudos to you and keep him headed in the right direction. Stay safe and stick a pig!!!:wink:
