The story...

Day trip up and back to Upper Red. (about 6 hours total drive time) Not many fish that trip with four people in the rental house as I think we caught 8 total with none brought home. The wife caught two, a friend caught two and Faith caught four taking home the triple crown of First, biggest and most!That's nine dollars to the piggy bank for her! (and a skunk for me!)

This fish was the final one for the trip as the truck was already running and most of the gear was already packed up... hey the lines are the last thing that gets loaded right? I should mention here that the temperature rose to an incredible 18 below that day for a high in Washkish.

Anyway, I had just come back inside and mentioned that my bobber was down and she ran over and just grabbed the rod and set the hook. All I did was hold it for her for the picture. This is her third trip up there and every year she does something spectacular. Two pike over 35" the previous year and all the crappies her first trip.

She's a good fisherperson and an excellent companion on trips as she is easily entertained and can be happy just hanging out if the fish don't cooperate.

I'm really looking forward to the soft water season this year as it looks like she'll be able to take plenty of trips with me on those afternoons when it's just too nice to come home from work and do nothing. Truly it is a bonus to have decent fishing just minutes from your door.

Wanna put it in perspective??? Take a kid fishing.

Exactly... there is nothing like taking a kid fishing. Good for you and good for the kid.

The smile on her face says it all. What a great picture. A good time that will be long remembered by both of you I'm sure.
