Outfished

I am always thrilled to see folks introducing their kids to fishing at a young age, some of them at a very young age.  There is only one thing I warn them about:  Some day they will grow up and out-fish you!

Recently, both of my kids caught their biggest walleyes, same day, same evening.  I caught nothing.  I hooked a fish late, but then lost it.

A 27-incher for Emily:

A 28 for Daniel:

At least they released them!

Maybe I can catch ’em next time?

Or, maybe you can?

You’re welcome.
