I took my 12 & 9 year old sons out at daybreak this morning for some backwater bassin'. We fished behind Stathmere using Chug Bug poppers. My 9 y/o and I had a few tail slaps and a couple small blues. My 12 y/o had a 20" bass and this nice 30" 9lb-12oz. bass. A real nice fish for this time of year.

The only thing better than watching a bass hit a surface plug is watching the excitement/panic of it hitting your son's surface plug.
This fish gave it a slap and he let it sit for a second. Then I told him to start reeling slowly. As soon as the popper moved again, BAM!, it was on! The fish dragged us around in a circle until he fought it to the net. What a morning for him! (and me)

That's awesome! I love hearing stories of kids
catching nice fish like that. He is now officially
addicted. I fished that area last night and the
bass were busting all over. I just hope they stay
active for a while.

I'm glad you got to enjoy the same action we did this morning! By the way, is that a picture of your boat or my home? Just kidding, I live in the condos in the background.
