    My 4 year old great grandson wanted to fish Saturday. We went to the pond and he caught a few nice Bluegills (on gummy worms of all things). After getting back to the house he layed down for a while and got sick. We called his mom and met her in Chillicothe at Hospital (Athena?) The Doctor couldn't find the problem but gave him meds and sent him home. Sunday morning he got sick again and this time they took him to Childrens Hospital in CMH. Turns out he had a virus. They gave him meds and today thank God he is feeling much better. He called me a while ago and wants to go fishing. I promiced to pick him up later this week and make a special shopping trip to his choice of Fishermans Warehouse or Gander Mountain,and back to Gallipolis for a few days of hot fishing at the pond.

    I'm so glad to hear that your grandson is doing better. :cool2: Hey, there isn't that much difference between a GUMMI work and a plastic worm, except the Gummi worms taste better to humans. ha ha.

    I've caught gills on just about any kind of candy...starburst, skittles, gummi's....
