My son Cody will be 4 in November, and I took him fishing a few weeks ago to see if we could get him his first fish. I wasn't fishing for catfish, just bluegill or whatnot, we where fishing in a country club pond that my girlfriends sister lives by. We used a small nightcrawler set up with a bobber about a foot up from it. This is what we caught. Of course I helped him with the pole and reel some, but he brought it in, it's his fish.
