I honestly for the life of me can't believe he can cast it effectively, but he does! He has even become quite good at fixing his own backlashes. THAT is worth the price of admission! Love fishing with my little man!
He will soon be out-fishing you. I fish the ABA and local bass tournaments and my 18 year old has been my tournament partner since he was 13.
He is the one when we have a tourney coming up will start researching the lake if we haven't fished it, and will put together a milk run for us based on our pre-fishing days and add GPS spots to my humminbird units.
But he is now heading off to college and flight school.
I will miss my partner. Enjoy that boy Doug,
I have $60,000 invested in a boat, motor, gear and baits all to catch a fish with a brain the size of a pea. I wouldn't have it any other way.
