    Went to Flam city for about an hour with my daughter. Took an ultra light and a few worms. We were casting out maybe 6 feet from the ramp and she caught 2 bass 2 drum and a bunch of perch. A boat was loading so we casted to the left of the boat ramp and she reeled in a flathead, her first one:big_smile: It was only about 8 inches but it was her first. I unhooked it for her and we released it to fight another day.:big_smile: I couldnt be more happy.

    It doesn't get any better than that. Well, except for that first time she said the word "daddy" to you.
