Kansas John

Take the kids fishing!  Unfortunately, about an hour from home I realized I forgot the gate key.  Oh well, everyone had a pretty good time.

My youngest, after having “worm pals” during the spring garden prep, decide the worms were too gross.  She also had an issue with the cow patties in the pasture on the way to the pond.  

Other than that, we did pretty good.  The boys caught multiple fish and I even had a chance to land two bad between fixing tangles.  

The grassy water plants were tough for the boys to drag their catches through.  This however, is common pond fishing for this time of year.

I brought my 425nl and everything needed to make some hotdogs for lunch, but the kids were ready to swing by and wave to grandpa from his back patio.  Leftover pizza from grandpa’s beat out the hotdogs before the 2hr drive home.

Looks like you and the kids had a great day, John!  Nice pictures of the fun at the pond.  I know it’s just the perspective but the picture of you holding the bass with your son in the background makes for one big looking fish!  😁
Looks like everyone had a great day.

Memories...when I was a kid was a couple of pond nearby, would pull spinnerbaits over the top of the weeds (only way to fish it) and bass would just explode on em, then you pretty much just skipped the bass over the top of the weeds to get em in. If they got in the salad it was all over with.

  THANK YOU for taking the kids fishing.  And for posting. 
Time well spent!
Congrats on the outing.
Purty colors. Well , cept'n maybe that brown when it's on fire...
Nice post! When I was his age, a bass was a real prize. A pickerel, white perch, or bluegill was the usual catch.
Nothing better than taking kids fishing!

 P.S. My favorite Coleman are still my 3-burners
