    tonight my sons , myself and their uncle went to a familiar small lake
    that we go to often and useing the same bait we always take except the
    shrimp this time we see who can catch the most the biggest the first the last
    etc.
    well tonite we have started a new spin in our old games and this is how many
    gills you can catch off of a single wax worm.
    in the past i know i have several times caught about 6-maybe 7 off of one if i was lucky,
    well my 10 year old caught 19 off 1 little waxy !!!!!:big_smile:
    it was a mere shread of skin hanging off the little hook with barely anything keeping it on and he was still reeling in nice fat bulls and little ones too.
    this will definantly be a record we will strive to surpass .
    all in all he landed over 70 by himself and i let him haul in a 4# channel
    that took a gill head after it sat over an hour . so he had a good outing.
    just wondering if anyone else plays these little contest type games while fishing with the family.if so has anyone done the "how many gills on a waxworm" ?:smile2:

    I thought we were the only one's that played that game?

    Sometimes, it seems I spend more time refixing the kids lines then I do fishing?
