Awesome job on hooking the kid! My son got a small keeper from the shore this year as well (7 year old) and he was besides himself. I had to cast but he did the rest. Now he asks everyday Dad you wanta go fishin? It doesn't get better than that!
I gues I did cheat a little, I had to hold the middle of the pole to keep it up but he did the reel. Very true he has asked me about 20 times when we goinging again dad? My wife saw all the joy he had from this that know it will be real easy when I say can I go fishing with the kids she will say sure!! I should of got him a keeper sooner it makes asking to go fishing easy.
Doesn't get much better than that man, congrats. I can't wait til my little girl catches her first, keeper or not, then she too will be hooked for life!!!! Did this make it to the Jr. Angler's section yet...if not, it definitely should, that thing's a pig!!!!!! thumbsup.gif
