    looking for a productive trip

    I am taking a father/son out fishing this weekend. They fish once or twice a year and I just want to put them on some fish. I usually take them to Dix River below the dam, but am worries that the rain may have the rivers too high and muddy. Any ideas?? Might take them to Wilgreen for a day of bluegill fishing unless I can come up with anything better.

    Thanks,
    RJP

    it was a good morning

    We did end up going to Wilgreen Lake and caught 86 fish in about 4.5 hours. All sunfish except for two channel cats. Used 6# test and light rods with bobbers. The young I took had a blast. We used a clicker to keep count of our fish and a dollar bill to measure them. I would say that we only had 8 or 9 fish less than 6 inches (length of the dollar bill). I gave him the dollar when we were done and told him it was his lucky dollar. His dad spent most of the trip taking fish off the hook while I would bait up a rod and cast it. It started slow, but then it started raining and the fishing was on fire after that.

    If you get a chance, take a kid fishing. You might just change someone's life and get them hooked on fishing.

    Tight lines,
    RJP

    Sounds like a good trip. Hopefully that kid bugs his dad to death to take him fishing from here on.
