    I took my son and a neighbor kid out fishing today on the upper LOZ, it was his friend's first time fishing for catfish. We didn't catch anything to brag about, but you'd never know it by the smile on their faces. it ook all day and quite a lot of work on the guide's part, but we managed to boat around 15 or 20 little blues and kept 6 of them for the dinner table. At least the weather was nice and it was mostly peaceful before the weekenders show up again...

    Had a great time and I'm sure the neighbor kid will be back soon begging to go again...

    Maybe nothing you or I would brag about, but remember that is his 1st, and from the looks on them faces it says it all, Congrats for taking them out! I think I have more fun through out the year fishing with my 10 year old daughter and what ever friend of hers that goes at the time, then I ever do while hunting the hogs.....:big_smile:

    Nice job Marty. I have alot of respect for a person that takes the time to take a young person out hunting or fishing. Not only the time but the patience that goes along with it.

    Those boys look like they had a great time. It is great to take a kid fishing for the first time.

    I saw you out there Marty, I was anchored just down from White Branch when you guys went by headed upstream. Glad you guys got on some fish and the kids had a good time! I had a 15 year old with me that was having a blast, hard to beat watching a kid catching fish! I dig the "cool" sunglasses. Chris
