Today was epic.
After a good session yesterday at a pay pond where the water was low and the snakehead were biting I decided to take Angus out of school today and get him on to his first fish. He’s been getting frustrated not catching fish on lure and I don’t blame him. He’s only 7 and you need extreme patience for snakehead on lures.
We arrived and set up camp in a little bungalow and Angus started casting away. About a dozen casts later and he’s getting the hump ” awwwwww I’m never going to catch a fish “. I tell him to keep trying and a few minutes later he shreiks in joy “FISH ON DADDY!!!!”Low and behold he’s done it. He proudly reels in his first ever fish….snakehead ON LURE NO LESS.
Then to add to the success of the day I catch my first ever fish on a top water walking lure…the famous Heddon Super Spook. Walking a lure requires practice and finesse and I was very chuffed. But nowhere near as chuffed as I was with my little man. So proud…..
