fishing with granddaughter

My granddaughter is down for awhile and I just had to take her out to the lake to catch some bass. She is 10 and only been shore fishing for bluegill and never thought it was much fun but had heard me tell of catching big fish and was willing to learn. I started her on my old standby, Berkley ribbed snake, and told her where she needed to cast. First cast, 14 1/2" LM. She thought it was big but I told her that now that she knew how to catch them we were going to go get a BIG one. We went of to the north shore next to the dam and started working the edges of the weed beds. She worked it hard and cast how I told her and were and it soon payed off and she brought in a 17 1/2" dawg that gave her the fight of her life. She said it was hard to bring in but she liked catching BIG fish. On the way home, she said if her dad (son in law) came down she was going to show him how to catch big fish. I see it as one bass caught and released, one girl caught for life.
