Is there anything better in life?

Recommended Posts

When smallies are on beds the fishing doesnt get any better....

With one exception...  the smallies are on beds and your son is in the boat with you..

I took the boy out over the weekend to finish the break-in on Wamplers and at his begging and pleading we stopped to do some fishing...

We rolled up on a bed and I began to teach him what little I know about bed fishing... I pointed out the bed, made a perfect cast a few feet past the bed and began to work it toward the bed when I hear the splash of a 1/4 oz tungsten married up with a 5 inch hula grub.  This came as a complete surprise because as I recall I was throwing a 3/16 oz tungsten with a brush hog.

Just as I turned around to confirm my suspicions I see the boy loading up on this smallie...

Life just doesnt get any better than that..

That is awesome....almost like me and Tritonman....lol....He caught all the fish...but with only 3 as proof and no pics...lol.  His son likes to out fish us too.  

So where on Wamplers did ya find those babies?  Last time we were there...shorts all day long.. ;D ;D

I only posted pics of the ones he caught :)  I didnt want to steal the youngster's 10 minutes of fame on the net!!  We caught about 20 keepers.  We cruised the shoreline, anywhere the sand/pebbles were visible we looked for bedders and cruisers. (which is nearly the entire shoreline on Wamplers).  We didnt concentrate on any one area, I just kept the TM on 50% and stopped when we spotted one.  I think we circled the lake twice just with the TM.   ;D

I figurd RW would like the smallie pics!   ;)

One thing I forgot to mention... the grandpa's and grandma's were bedding in the deeper water. 6 to 8 foot. The problem was it that the water was very choppy so that was hard to find and hold on the bed.

I saw one 5 to 6 lb'r cruising a bed and locked on but when I pitched to it a stinking 11 inch largie grabbed my brush hog and I couldnt relocate the bed. I was PO'd!

Those are great pics.

Green bass are a nuisance and always disappointing when you're on a hot smallmouth bite.

Kids these days just do not appreciate the outdoors enough.  I do not want to let him grow up like that!  He's going to be my NBAA partner this year :)  Earnings will be split 80/20 in my favor of course  ;D

Love those Pics. Nothing better than Dad & son out together catching a few. Some of my best memories are being out with Dad (He almost always out fished me but when I beat him -SWEET!! ;D and unforgettable!)

There is nothing better than fishing with your kids. Its one time you don't mind the other guy or girl out fishing you,  :) I am sure that day will stick with your son for a lifetime.
