My son's first fishing experience

ShotgunJohnShotgunJohn Lakewood WAPosts: 1,545 ✭✭
Well my son (2 years old) was invited to a fishing birthday party at a stocked you fish. I bought him his very own fishing pole (Spiderman) last weekend. My father-in-law bought him his first tacklebox on Thursday. Yesterday, he cast like a champ and was able to catch 2 rainbow trout about 11-12 inches, he had a blast.
Last night we had his 2 fish breaded in a cornmeal/flour mix and pan fried, grits, black-eyed peas and collard greens.
First Fish on the line.

    That's awesome, brother! I'm not a big fisherman, but I remember the first time my kids helped me turn wrenches on a car or bike, a the cheesy grins with oil/grease smears on their cheeks. Those are the memories that transcend time. Congrats to you and the lil' bro!

    That's good stuff brother. I took my future step son fishing for his first time last year and seeing the excitement when he caught his first one was so awesome
