You da man TN Larry. I agree with you 100% and simply cant understand those who wont or dont take their kids into the outdoors and enjoy it with them. I dont kill nearly as many big deer as i once did, and win way less money fishing than I once did, but Im having the best time of my life doing both with my boys and even my Dad!! Congrats again!!!


Amen brother and Thanks for setting a good example on here, not as a father but as a DAD! I am missing a big fish off this year that happens on juvenile weekend unless I can get him to KY to kill a deer there prior. I still hate for him to miss the Saturday morning in TN so may give it up even if he kills in KY. He already knows that he will be 6 this year and is ready to go. I don't plan on letting him down.

This thread also reminds me of why I dislike organized sports so much. In my town, organized teams were really just getting started as I was about 7-10 years old. I remember playing ONE YEAR of coach-pitch baseball and hating every weekend. It was fine to play ball when I wanted, but I couldn't stand how when Saturday rolled around, my dad would say "we can't go fishing this morning, because you have to go play ball".

My wife is annoyed at me for not pushing him to sign up for something. We finally hit a happy medium and got him into karate, which is 90% weeknight routine.

Having those weekends to have adventures with the kids is what it's all about! My son is 5 and picking up on things pretty quick.

Thank you for the very kind words man.
I can promise you that pollen gets worse as they get older.

Nothing I would rather do in this world that be doing ANYTHING with my little man.

Had a pretty crappy day but now it is great again, thank you. \:D

He was after catfish last night instead of bass though. I bet that he said 25 times that he was going to catch a catfish. I told him that what we were throwing and how we were doing it would probably not catch a catfish. He then asked what to catch catfish on. I said well some sort of live bait like a bluegill, nightcrawlers, or a minnow. He said well, this swim bait looks just like a minnow so they will think that it is a minnow, and I am going to catch one. \:\) Pretty good logic for a 5 year old.



Well he finally got him a catfish. We went yesterday evening to bluegill fish the run in from the recent rains, and he caught (wound in) this catfish. We caught 20 or so bluegill and 6 big shellcracker as well plus a couple of small KYs (lost one big one). It was a pretty good evening for just a couple of hours fishing minus the part when he fell in the livewell while just "looking" at the fish inside. \:\)

Thats great way too many kids spend way too much time indoors or on the computer or watching TV now a days. I mean I am still young but I can definately see the difference. I guess it is just like my dad used to say oh you kids are different, when I was a kid this is what we did. Anyways my point is, kids are more interested in things like playing video games, getting on facebook, and games played inside. It doesnt seem like there are as many things that sell kids on getting outdoors as much as there used to be. That makes it even more important for us parents to show our what what we got to enjoy. I played video games when I was a kid, but looking back I never rememeber a time where I was more excited than fishing or hunting. I believe it is ones responsibility to get your kids outdoors and give them the oppurtunity to like fishing and hunting
