    I took my daughter out for a few hours lastnight, cause she has been buggin me to go. I had a run on one of my smaller rods and told her to get ready. I grabbed the rod out of the holder and gave it to her. She fought the fish about 5 min. till I snatched it up for her. I thought she was going to get pulled in a few times :smile2:, but she got her.

    Great fish! Any idea on the weight?

    She looks like one proud and happy girl!

    I wish my son wanted to fish with me more. (I guess I kind of spoiled it for him by keeping him out too long, etc.)

    Thanks guys! It weighed 12.8 lbs. It is 1/4 of her body weight, so it is pretty big to her. She did it all though. I didn't help her at all, except for give her the rod. I don't think she is ready for a #20 yet, but I will let her try if I get the chance. Last year I hooked #20+ and gave her the rod. It just about pulled her right in and she couldn't even keep the rod tip in the air so I had to reel it in. One of these days though, she is going to get one in.
