    Took my daughter Maygen to the Hocking last night. River was up about a foot. I caught one channel that weighed around 5lbs on cut gill. She caught this dink channel and a sheephead not much bigger. There was some carp in the shallows and she wanted to try to catch one. So she threw a crawler out in front of them and waited a couple minutes. Her pole started bouncing a little and she grabbed it. Hooked into a carp that might've went 12 to 15 lbs. She fought it for about a minute before it snapped her line. She got mad and says she wants a bigger setup with heavier line so that she can catch those big fish. She always lets me know that she has outfished me even tho my one was alot bigger than the two she caught.

    Well dad the writing is on the wall! Time to get all the way down in that back pocket and pony up that well deserved "big rig". Defeat at the scales of a carp..unthinkable. Hopefully no permanent damage done. What a wonderful memory. Thank You for sharing!

    Boog has been outfishing me pretty consistent lately. But really, I have to say I love watchin' him catch a fish, just like I'm sure you feel when your little buddy catches one.

    Life is good brother!!!! Thanks for sharing.

    Get that young lady a big outfit! She's ready to catch some big 'uns!:big_smile: I have 4 daughters and they often can outfish me. Girls seem to have that certain touch, I can't quite describe it but the fish always seem to bypass my bait and go straight to theirs!:roll_eyes:

    Teach her how to catch bait Roger, I am sure she would love that..Heck she could probably throw a castnet better than Mellon now.
