Fish: Black Crappie

First Fish

My grandson has been fishing with me many times, but never caught one. There are about a hundred things he'd rather be doing, and his attention span is about 5 seconds. Today, 11 years old, it happened. It finally happened. I guess it's ok if he's not into fishing, but today he made my day.

Great job ! 👍👍👍Cool post Barnacles. I always like these posts. And just an FYI . At 5 seconds, he has my attention span beat by 4 seconds when Iím drowning bait for carp !

Thanks guys & apologies to anyone that was out there to witness my embarrassing public celebration. It was a little bit like a game winning touchdown with a taunting penalty.

I don't remember what I caught last week, but I'll be bragging about this one until I'm senile.

I take my boys fishing often and the #1 thing I feel they need to keep their attention is FISH. Doesnt matter if it is 6" trout or 2" crappie - those kids want to catch. Get them out on an easy bite, let them catch on their own, and that will grow the passion. Sitting on the shoreline for hours with nothing just grows boredom...

just my $.02
