Took my daughter fishing at the Lewisville barge. It's in better shape now than it was a few years ago. Over the years, my experiences with fishing at this place have been that it's more comfortable fishing inside in than it is to fish outside on a really hot day. "Catching" isn't quite as important ... but ... to an 8 year old, catching matters or it gets boring.

Thankfully the bluegill were very accommodating and I stopped counting after the first dozen or so that she pulled up. Quite a few big chunky ones that, in hindsight, I should've kept to fillet. I was soaking corn on a small hook for carp & buffalo. Had a few hookups, but lost every single one of the buggers.

Get that photo printed and then frame it. It will be one of your best trophies when she grows up.

Took her again yesterday and I was reminded of one of the big reasons that I stopped fishing there. Noise. Theres a flatscreen TV for the employees, and the bloody thing was cranked to full volume, so loud that you couldn't even make out dialogue, and it made holding a conversation almost impossible.

Yes, I know, some people have to have a tv or radio or something blasting noise at all times. I'm not one of them.

Excellent story and great pic. Brings back great memories of when my 36 y/o daughter was that age. Keep a copy of that pic and look at it in 28 years. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a tear in your eye.
