SUMMARY :
Today was my oldest daughter's first time on Daddy's boat. She did a fantastic job (except when she lost her fishing rod overboard) catching five fish - all bluegill sunfish - and all on live earthworms suspended from a bobber.

Sizes for Caroline's fish were 8.2", 7.7", 7.1", 7.0", and 6.5". I was real proud of my punkin' today. When you consider that there were no rocks to throw, no sand to play with, no ducks to feed, etc. The only activity was fishing, sipping juicies, eating snacks, and enjoying the beauty and serenity of nature, for a five year-old that's something.
