    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.

    Its always good seeing youngsters like him going out with his dad, on the lake catching fish and making memories......I remember my very first catch, it was a 42 inch Nothern....Here in Wisconsin.....That was the biggest fight of my life.....All I remember was I saw this family of ducks swimming near us, and one got engulfed by this fish.....SO I started to throws lures down from them....and that is when that "Monster" hit me...took me nearly 20 minutes to pull it in.....What a fight for someone who was only 6...

    Congrats on the nice catch there. being his first fish i think i would have had it mounted so he could look at it and remember that time when he got it.

    Good job
