    took the boys out and set 17 hooks out on trot line yesterday and this morning had a 13,8,4 LB all flats, we had a great time . the boys just love fishing, its all they want to do, next year we will have a big boat so we can go to bigger water to chase some monsters.http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/Leallen/030101120734.jpg

    Congrads on the catch. Nothings better than taking kids fishing and teaching them how to get them Flatties.

    it suprised me when a 11 and 7 year old started asking if we could get up at 4:30 am and go fishing before I go to work every day. I think they are ate up with it already.

    i love to get kids involved in fishing. it shows them that there is something better and keeps them out of the streets. it also teaches them survivle skills
