We go down to Fla. to see Mom mom and pop pop every winter. They live in a private community with lakes surrounding their home. I caught 4 myself that were near 5lbs and tons that were between 8"-12" long.

I took my son one afternoon to a small lake that holds tons of fish. he caught about 12 bass and about 12 big bluegill. Everytime he would hook a smaller bass, this larger bass would take a swipe at them. Finally we flip a live night crawler out and I see this bigg momma come shooting across the top. I say to him, hang on! It really was a great fight, and she almost got us in the weeds, but eventually she came back out and we had her to the side. He is 2yrs old mind you.....he kept saying look at that marlin:D. Anyway, I was pumped for him and luckily I remembered my phone. I'm the proud dad:thumbsup:

Colin and his big bass!

Hey Skip, that's awesome! I remember when my son was at that age! He loved fresh water until I took him out for Stripers on the Contender. Keep taking him out and he'll be mating for you one day and maybe be one of your Captains in the near future!!

Your absolutely right about this job Skip! That's the only reason I'm still doing it, I love the teaching aspeck of it! When you take a youngster out there there;s nothing like the look on his face when he lands a big old Cow Bass!!
