Nothing to Carp About

The nice spring weather here in Nebraska this weekend was certainly nothing to carp about and neither was the fishing action today along one of Nebraska’s water trails — the Elkhorn River as well as in a nearby backwater pond!

My buddy Andre and I took his eight year-old daughter Isabelle fishing on her Uncle Mark’s land.

She had a blast catching carp using whole nightcrawlers!

Even I landed one.

It was just great to be outside and enjoy fishing with Isabelle and Andre.

Remember, whenever there’s an opportunity to take a kid fishing or your family outdoors, do it! Let the kids explore, mess with the fish, get dirty, have fun and make memories!
