Best Mothers day gift ever.

Recommended Posts

Mothers day was the greatest this year for me. I was up by 6 and fishing by 7:30. I hit one of my favorite local honeyholes for about 2 hours and landed 8 bass. I was very pleased, my whole point to this morning was to catch 2 fish in memory of 2 very important people to me who passed this past year, my grandmother and my friend Lisa since they would not be here this Mothers day. It was a great start to the day in my book, but the real highlight was to come later.

I headed back home and was greeted by my girls with some chocolate covered strawberries and some Jordan crackers and last but not least some brand new fish hooks. We then had some cholcolate covered strawberries and jordan crackers for breakfast and headed out on our next adventure.O0

Today was the first time that I took my 10 year old Madison out to specifically target bass. I chose a private local farm pond in our area that I was given permission to fish as long as I made the Apple Pie. ;D

I figured the best thing to start Madison off with was to rig up my rod with one of those perfect plastics senkos. We started with the basics of how to cast with a spinning rod and what places would be good to target. It was not long and she had her first bass of the day.

I then gave her a little room and let her have a go of it on her own. To my surprise she had 5 more fish, all bass within the first 1/2 hour. I was so proud and she was so hooked. ;D

Here are a few more pics and as you can see size does not matter because she was thrilled to meet them all regardless of how big they were. ;D

It was not long and I heard some screaming.... " Mom!!!! I got a big one " so I came running over camera in hand and she sure did have a nice one. I was so proud. ;D ;D ;D

It turned out that this was not to be her biggest fish for the day either. That one she got when she was walking around the other little pond with her dad and since I had the camera we did not get a pic of that one but daddy said her little sunfish rod (as maddie calls it) was screaming and pulling drag when she finally got it in it was about a 3 pound bass. ;D

At the end of this wonderful day I ended up with the best present a mother could ever ask for.. A day with my family and a 10 year old daughter with her first bass thumb.

She also ended up with a few sunnies and I managed to get my rod back long enough to get one on the Ragetail shad too. ;D

I knew she was hooked after today and on our ride home she was already asking when we would be going back and then said..... "Mom I want a rod just like yours now." ;D ;D

Awesome! Great post Ms. Matstone, and glad to see your daughter is hooked  :) Very impressive that she was able to get so many fish her first time out - she must have good coordination.

Sounds like a great day out Mrs.M, taking the day to reflect on memories of two special women and make new memories with the kids.  Your one heck of a lady.  Looks like Madison is all set to follow in mom's footsteps.  Happy belated Mother's Day.  8-)

There is nothing better than getting your youngster out except perhaps getting your grand-youngster out. Congrats on a great day.

Thanks guys it was an awesome day. I cannot wait to have her out there fishing again. It is the only thing better than doing the fishing yourself.  ;D I could watch her fish all day and never stop smiling.
