The boys had a great time, even though it was a tough day - to say the least. We fished the 66 bridge and caught one sand bass... and a few small catfish.. using minnows.
I haven't taught them how to jig yet, because I figured minnows would be easier with both of them on the boat. Anyway we left there and went to the 30 bridge and there were about 10 boats tied off to the various pillars... so I figured the fish must be biting there. I moved around and we caught one more catfish. Nothing else... and I didnt see any of the other fisherman catch a single fish. Before long, they cleared out and there was only one other boat nearby. I spoke to the guy and he said that he was also having a tough day. Anyway I posted the photo of the boys holding the sand bass. They were excited. The older boy holding the fish is my neighbor. That's his very first fish! Cool! Even though it was a slow day, it was all worth it seeing him catch that fish.
