My little guy is 4 1/2 months old and it's been great! There will be times that won't be the most fun but they are FAR out weighed by the rest of the time. Sleep is over rated btw. My advice is to enjoy every second you can. It's true that they grow up fast. Even in 4 months my boy has changed a lot.

Congratulations!

...and I was afraid to hold my first... grin.gif

I remember that getting to go fishing for a few hours was like a distant memory and I wondered if I still remember how to cast...wait it still is...baby is only 7 months...just last nite holding the kid and gave the kid a rod and reel to humor myself...

Get some sleep whenever you can... grin.gif

My little boy is 15 months old and his favorite toy to carry around the house is a 'glass ice noodle with a small spinning reel on it. He brought it to the portable mod get together and hasn't stopped playing with it. He has figured out how to reel the line up already, now I can't wait till he has a fish on the end of the line.

Enjoy all the moments, even the bad ones cause they make memories for a lifetime.

Yeah that would be scary. My first big fish was a carp caught on a piece of corn in the Des Moines river. Now look at my screen name. I might take her out in a couple of years for some spring crappies...

Congrats man! My girls are 5 & 6, & some of my favorite pictures already are of them proudly holding up a crappie or bluegill for the camera. And to watch my five-year old hold out her arms to describe the bass she caught, it must have been a state record... grin.gif

      Did you access that stretch from Wilson Park @eyeguy 54?  
    • phishnerd
      I guess a crayfish pattern might work up there eh?
    • eyeguy 54
      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      Camping on west side for the weekend.  Anyone else be up that way.  Will have boat and maybe open seats when the kids get tired of fishing.
