ok, first of all, let me say that I am NOT the most patient person in the world. I knew right off the bat that taking my 3 boys fishing was going to require much more patience than I was used to having. But, I figured I'd give it a go this year. Thanks to some great rods given to us by runum & njdave, we've had some good times so far. But, I've learned a couple things along the way:

1) Worms that have been dead in a container for 2 weeks REEK worse than anything I've ever smelled in my life. [eek]
2) I need to take the boys out fishing ONE AT A TIME. I cannot take all 3 boys out together and expect that the time will be relaxing at all. (My boys are 6, 5, and 2).
and, finally,
3) If I want to have some time fishing myself, I need to go out alone, at night, after the boys are in bed.

Having said that, I have LOVED the time that the boys and I have spent together fishing. I love the opportunities that I have to teach them about the outdoors, animals, Creation, etc.

One of our favorite places to go is Lake Ocquittunk. We went yesterday afternoon (Fri). Here are my 2 oldest boys:

Finally, in all the times that I've been out by myself, I've caught nothing but 1 pickeral back in May. Well, tonight, I went back to Ocquittunk, and caught myself as 8" smallmouth, a 10" largemouth, and a respectable sunny. Of course, since the boys weren't with me, I didn't bring the camera. [wallmad]

Oh well. There's always next time. And there will be a next time...

Don't ever stop spending time with your kids, cause pretty soon they are not kids anymore.

Can't tell from the pics. if they're donning their snakeskin moccasins from the last dad/kids project.;)
That's what it's about polarbear [up]
And in some cases, you just learn right along with them . . .

Shoot Straight!
Can't tell from the pics. if they're donning their snakeskin moccasins from the last dad/kids project.

That snake skin is out in the garage dried and ready to be mounted on a nice piece of wood. I'll post pics of that when it's done!
Wow you caught a small mouth out of oquatunk?
