Today , I took my two boys (3 and 2 ) fishing with me today. So I stop by walmart and picked up two poles..One a spider man the other cars. So we go to the local lake (pflugerville) , a lake about 2 or 3 yrs old.So my son want a shrimp on his line.so i put one on their a threw it out about 15yrds. I'm tryin to getting my younger son setteled down.Then all or a sudden I hear a dude close by yellin at me , telling me my son has one.so I turn around a he has a nice one.. so I tried to take his pole from him and he say daddy no its my fish , not yours.so i hold the pole , but the fish keep takin line , the more I tighten up the drag , the more the reel cries. so my son finally gave me the pole.i know this is a spiderman reel with about 5lb test..i fight this fish about 15 minutes. I got him within 10 feet from the bank , then all of a sudden he comes to the top and make a huge splash and break the line .my son walk over to me and kick me right on the leg. and said "you let my fish go " :sad2:.. its 1130pm now and hes still mad at me.i know hell get over it , but man i wish i could have landed that fish..

Thanks for the story. Sorry for the little guy that daddy lost his big fish.:eek:oooh::smile2:
If your kids are anything like mine. Don't take the "snoopy" poles unless you want to end up using them.:smile2: My kids end up with the good gear on every outing. Either my wife or myself (sometimes both) end up giving the kids our poles so they can land the fish. I have sat there many a time with the kids pole while they use mine.:smile2::eek:oooh::big_smile: Had to learn to take extra poles. The kids still want there toy poles on the boat but they end up wanting to fish with a "daddy or mommy pole".:smile2: Priceless.:big_smile:

Thanks
David

Welcome to the BOC, sorry your boy lost "the big one" Pretty cool to be 3 years old and have 'the one that got away' story. I have never cared for the line that comes with new reels, they just seem weak. Better luck next time, I'm sure there'll be more fish to be caught.
