    Hello everyone,
    My daughter has been fishing all week with friends from the Rend Lake area...

    I am posting a couple pictures of her catch and hope you all enjoy looking...She has topped us all with her big fish weighing in at 30lbs...We are going tomorrow and pick her up...Received the phone call and pictures today and wanted to share them with you all as soon as I heard...

    Look out for this girl she is making some noise and is on an adrenaline
    rush on cloud 9 some where...

    Hey Brooke you are now hooked. Congratulations! That will get ya pumped. Paul, it is more of a thrill when the children exceed than it is for oneself. Congats to you and Sally for putting her in the position to accomplish the feat.

    Man Paul, you were down this way and I didn't even get a call:tounge_out:. Just kiddin. What is it about these kids, seems they have much better luck than we do. Dillon has me skunked at least till I catch one over 13#. Grats Brooke on your fish.

    I am sorry for not calling but only down for the day to drop off my daughter and pick her up...

    Ok I confess we also ate really good when we came down...
    I am so glad she caught these fish it made me really proud...

    I will show her these post and let her respond to each of them but Thank You all for the comments...I know she is all jacked up right now and only wish I could have seen her reel them in...

    Maybe one day I will learn from her and catch me a few...LOL

    Seems like she has the luck...I can put her on one side of the boat and she will catch fish I move to that side and catch nothing she moves to the side I was fishing and catches fish...

    Don't think I will ever learn...LOL:wink:
    I think I am going to have her hook them from now on and just let me reel them in...LOL:smile2:

    Thanks Shane,
    Maybe one day she will let me in on her secrets...lol
    I think she said she spits on the hook every time before she throws it out...I do to but maybe thats my problem they don't like my chew spit...
