    I went to the dam in Humboldt today because the river had gone down and I expect it will be flood stage for a few days.Anyway my daughter found out I was there so she had her mother bring her out.I let her use my medium rod while I fished with bluegill head on big rod.I had it rigged up with just a hook to float liver in close to rocks below dam.I showed her how to flip it out and let the current drift it next to bank.The fish hit so hard she almost lost the rod but she held on until he was worn down and then led him to bank where I could get it.She played him perfectly and of course insisted that we take it home.I can hardly wait to get her in our round boats when they get here.It weighed 9.7 lbs. her biggest yet.Pics below.I'm in fish off but she got the fish.

    That's great Ray. Congrats to your daughter. Spending time together is what it is all about. It doesn't hurt if you are catching some fish too.

    I love to see my daughters in the outdoors - my youngest shot her first turkey last year and I'll admit it I had tears in my eyes. I love to listen to her tell the story - she also had her pic in the topeka paper and she was on tv - she was 11 then and she's all over me about taking her out this year - I'm thankful I can enjoy these kind of things with my family!! Thanks for the story UB it's great to hear when someone else enjoys the same!!

    I'm glad we got to go the waters at least 20 ft deep where we were fishing yesterday and rising fast.
