    I took my 16 year old nephew out for the first time the other night. He did all the catching and I did all the baiting and casting. We fished for about 3 1/2 hours and he caught about a dozen fish. He managed to catch his personal best (a 23 pound 6 oz blue). Just prior to that he got one to the boat that would have gone 30 or better. When I tried to net the fish it came off. What a bummer. He told me that his biggest fish before that night was about a 6 pound channel. I look forward to taking him in the future.
