Well Saturday morning my son Layke, my father in law and me headed out to Waurika lake in Oklahoma for a morning of fun. Well my boy is 7 and after so long it's hard to keep him interested well not that day it wasn't! We fished for about 2 hours and he was running from one end of the boat to the other reeling down and taking the rods out of the holder. He hooked into his personal best which was knocking on the door of upper 20's lb. He fought this thing like a champ and I was a nervous fool trying to get it in the boat ( no net). Once we landed it you thought we hit the lotto by the way we were hollering! I was shaking so bad no lie! After about a 100 pics we let it swim back. We ended up with 22 eaters 20 of which he reeled in himself. The last few he was pooped! Great day!
And the end result! I found him like this when we were cleaning fish lol

There are very few things I have found in life that are better than taking your kid fishing and catching a bunch of nice fish. My son just turned 3 a couple days ago and as long as we are fishing straight down I just have to bait his hook. He is even successful at taking the hook out some of the times. Great job on some awesome fish.
