Went pond hopping with our daughter and grandson this last weekend because I knew that there was no way we would get anywhere close to the water on the big lakes.
Me being me I set up a couple rods for cats and they did the lure thing.
Our grandson is a fishing fool and threw lure all day long and ended up with two bass and a very sore shoulder lol.
Our daughter was mid retrieve when on of my cat rods started dancing and called it to my attention and I told her to get it. She dropped her rod and asked if she should set the hook and I told her it was already hooked and just reel it in, I use circle hooks, and the fight was on with her saying omg this is a fighter I've never had anything try and take the pole away from me. She ended up with a 9# cat and she told me that now she knows I mainly fish for cats.
She ended up marking off channel cats and bass off her list of caught fish.
It was great to hear the laughter and see the smiles on both of their faces.
