My fishing buddy, fellow Brother H20 Mellon has only been catishing for 4 years..I have 25 years of experience, so I am called the mentor, and he is called the sidkick..I have made a list of rules for him to follow, if you can think of any to add please do so. 1. Catch all the bait, must throw a castnet properly to get shad. Live bait must be kept live, cut bait must be kept cool on ice. 2. Do not paylake your mentor, give him the best spots, he is teaching YOU! 3. Do not throw fits when you cast your bait into a tree. 4. Make extra trips to the truck to get your mentors snuff that he forgot. 5. Be on time 6. Do not sleep while fishing, you might miss a lesson. 7. Bring a watch. 8. Bring a radio. 9. Do not get jealous when your mentor catches a bigger fish. 10. Do not try and net a 25-lb flathead in 4 inches of water. 11. Do not snore, see number 6 above. 12. Do not put nicks in your mentors line while he is not watching. 13. Purcahse your mentor a new abu 7000 and a ugly stik tiger rod for christmas. 14.
