    I just wanted to share one of my best fishing trips in my life.My grand- daughter is 7 Years old and I have taken her two brothers fishing and hunting with me several times but never her.Her brothers are 10 and 11 and into sports,fishing and hunting.In fact they took their first deer each last season.My grand-daughter has never been interested in either until this year.One day she looked at me and said (Pap-Paw will you take me fishing) and I said (yes I will take you fishing) Today was that day and I had a blast.We brought home 39 bream that she caught with a total weight of 6 lb 13 oz.Her comment was (Pap-Paw fishing is fun) and I asked her if she wanted to do it again and her comment was (well yes) so now I have another fishing partner.My wife was fishing with us and only caught five,but I think she was too busy watching our grandaughter have fun. All I can say is that it was one of my best fishing trips ever.

    Wow, what a catch! You can bet she will be following in Grandpa and Grandma's footsteps! Breanna is a cutie!

    P.S. I didn't check the time of the post, but I bet the teacher was asleep............dreaming. Heck use the ABC spell checker that comes with the Google bar. Sorry sometimes my OCD comes out more than others. :crazy:

    Y'all take care!

    This made me :lol: . Thanks for the laugh, BTW, I wasn't asleep. I was outside working in the yard, as the power was out along with my cell phone provider and home phone. Lights stayed off about an hour and half, then the cell phone network is still messed up. Comes and goes. Crazy. Anyway, wondered since it was a holiday if it was a ..........never mind, that was part of that crazy dream I had last night. Take care.

    Buddy, this thread puts a big smile on my face! There is nothing more beautiful than when a child discovers fishing. You must be very proud and she will have the memory of this day for the rest of her life!
