    Had a fun weekend!

    Hey yall, glad I found this place! Seams fun hear. Well a little about me. Im a 18 year old eastern NC boy. I hunt and fish every chance I get! Im a big fan of FORD trucks, drive a 1994 ford ranger 4X4. As my name implies I live near the Tar River, any others near hear….Nash County.

    Well Saturday me and a friend decided the go catfish’n, but first we had to get some bait. Off to see the gills. As we where sitting around the bank of a small pond fishing for some blue gills a boy about 14’ish ride up to the pond on a bike, he says “you fishing?” im thinking duh but I just say yep. He said ohh, I never bin fishing. Me and my friend where shocked, round hear kids go 4 places Hunting, fishing , school, and church! So we ask him If he would like to give it a try. He said sure so I walked to the truck and rigged up a light- weight reel for him to use. We told him how to cast and set the hook and turned him lose; Hell he almost out fished us! Well after about an hour and a half (we wert still keeping just have fun) he said he need to get home, of course he said after one more fish! Lol Me and my friend walked to the truck, I found a small tackle box that I had in the tool box of my truck for odds and end. Dumped it out in the tool box (hey I can always reorganize………next week) then me and my friend went threw our tackle box’s taking out roster tails, beetle spins and other baits like that. We walk to him and explained how to use the different baits and told him the box and pole where now his. He was ecstatic. He promised use he would stick to it and learn more about fishing! Later while me and my friend where driving away we said, ya know 10 years from now we might see that kid on the river. I always hear people say take a kid fishing, but I never knew It was so much fun to. All of those that have never taken a local kid fishing for the fist trip should really give it a try.

    Happy Fish’n Randy :cool:

    Good job Randy. It's fun doing something for a newbie like that. I like to do that at the local reservoir. I gotta admit though, after I'm nice to 'em, I usually recruit 'em to help me catch perch for bait!!!!! Lol

    First of all welcome to the BOC man!:)

    Now as other's said that really was a great thing you did for that kid, because of you he will hopefully get serious about fishing which is about the best thing a person could do in my opinion.......Thank's, glad to have you here.

    By the way, I live in Northeast. NC, in a little town called Murfreesboro. I fish the Roanoke River, Meherrin River, and Gaston Lake. Let me know if ever you come down this way and want to fish.

    Dude, that is an AWESOME thing you did for that young man! You should be proud. I still remember my dad teaching me to fish when I was about 6 or 7 years old. And now 29 years later, I'm still doing it as often as I can, and can't wait for my young'uns to get old enough for me to teach them.
    Oh yeah....welcome to the BOC! Stories like that are one of the reasons I love this site so much. Not only is there alot of wisdom on catfishin, but everyone here seems to just be good people. The same kind of people I remember meeting on lakes and rivers fishing with my parents and grandparents growing up. Hats off to you sir. That was a great thing you did.
