About the first 20 minutes, it was boring for them. They weren't getting any bites. Hailey got the first white perch and after that it was on!! They kept me so busy, baiting hooks, taking fish off, untangling lines.....etc. Garrett would catch one.....then Hailey...... The wind starting blowing hard and the sky started getting dark, you could feel the moisture in the air. I looked out across the field and saw the rain coming, I gathered things up and loaded them in the truck. While I was at the truck, I heard both kids screaming, "Daddy!" "Mr. Stevie!". Expecting the worst, I turned around and Hailey's rod was bent over double. She had hung a good fish. After several minutes at coaching her and telling her she can do it, about a 4 pound catfish came to the surface, saw us and went back down. I don't know which one was happier or more nervous....Hailey or Garrett. I got Hailey to walk to the bank and we were able to land the fish. All together, they caught a couple of bream, about 14 white perch and 1 catfish. They had a great time!! They helped clean, cook and eat them!! The very next day, they were asking to go back.
We have caught a bunch of fish out of this ole pond. It is a "honey hole". This spring we will have some new pics!!
