Memorial Day outing

FINALLY went fishing. I found a local Catfish Farm run by Mennonites and they have 3 lakes with a country store. I haven’t fished since I was a kid really, and my daughter has only ever fished with a line on a water bottle, so this is a great way to get back in there.I wore my Giant hat and the lightest clothes I could think of with spf 50 hoping not to trigger my MS with the heat. Nice breeze but the gnats were horrible

I set her rod up and cast for her. And wouldn’t you know it, as soon that the bait hit the water a fish grabbed it and broke the line with all the tackle, clean off. OK that line is to weak. So on to the 2nd rod, which I got set up rather quickly (and yes I fumbled for about 20 minutes with the 1st one) I cast for her and handed it over. The bait was in the water no less the 2 minutes and She pulled out her 1st fish!! And did I mention she casts better then I do? We traded back and forth, each pulling in 3 fish ending the day with a whopping 17lbs of catfish!! She said to me, “Mom, this was a great day. We are doing this again right?”

SCORE!!
