I know the code of fishermen is not to give up their spots, but places like FM and some good people make memories for kids.sunday afternoon, I decided to take my wife and 2 daughters (5&2) out in the boat to catch some sunnies and have some fun. I stop at the local bait shop south of Annandale and ask if there is a good spot to take my girls to catch some sunnies (I have a boat). the people in the shop don't offer too much help other than "weedy areas" (duh!) then the guy in back of us in line says, try this small lake just a couple miles away and walks me over to the map and gives me 3 good spot on the map to try. Needless to say we caught sunnies so fast I couldn't kepp a line in so I just baited hooks and took off fish. It is days like that, when my girls start to love fishing and for that I wish I could thank that guy. FYI we kept none, teaching CPR to my kids!

That's great, man! Glad one of our neighbors was willing to hook you up. Try the north launch on Maple Lake.

Thats great. The best time I have is fishing with my kids.

Many times I find that the bait stores offer little help, its kind of strange. The more fish I catch the more I buy!

Fisherman need to promote the sport! The more people who fish will ensure good fishing. If people dont fish then the PETA people convince them that fishing is bad. Look at CA where they have closed off large portions of the coast from fishing.

that souds like a great outing smile.gif nothing better than watching the sqeals of excitment from little kids catching a bunch of fish. i think that's why they made sunnies and perch. i had my little kids out a couple of weeks ago, and we spotted some nice sunnies in shallow. needless to say, we could have cleaned them out, but we did not. we only kept six nice ones, and turned the rest back. we changed locations several times as to not over harass one area. now six sunnies do not get you very far as far as a meal goes, but i am very cautious in teaching catch and release, not to make them think that keeping fish is a bad thing. they are mighty tasty, as well as entertaining to the fisherperson.we just need to know that every time we go out, it is not nesecary to keep all you can catch. i use the old"this ones to small, and needs to go back and see his mama" they fall for it every time.they have no problem turning them loose, but they still enjoy keeping a few for supper.
good fishing every one!
