Well with all the families & kids taking advantage of the killer trout bite yesterday @ Capt Rons kid derby I started feeling guilty for not taking Dom, figured it went down to early for him & it was cold for a 3 year old....
Well Sunday I was determined as I was bummed lookin at all of Maggies pics of the kids, so off to Jennings...

Rob, glad to see memories in the making! Before you know it- as you've certainly heard- he's grown, 26 years old and busy chasing his own life! Last year I joined mine in Idaho in a stream fishing trout! Time you spent w/ Dom will come back to you big! Keep it up, you two!

Doms growing & the fish are getting bigger too...
So today at 4:45 Dom is restless & has yet to take a nap all day.
I took a nap & was restless too, Shannon busy doing some weekend work crap I decide to take Dom to the lake & hopefully he will crash-out before we get there & ill get 15minutes of some peaceful drop-shotting before heading back to the barn...
No such luck, he was all in & was all about me renting a boat & cruising around the lake chasing ducks, I had a different plan & mind & apparently someone else did for me too today....
First text back to Shannon 5:00.. Her reply, "wow, that was quick, big fish"
So first cast, didnt like it so quickly retrieved & reset. Well that second cast produced a nice bass for such a little guy. So I scream at Dom to come over & take charge of this fish, first time ever for myself just giving him the reins. I held the foregrip of the rod for him & he quickly tucked the butt of the rod under him armpit as we practiced so many times before on the front lawn... I was freaking out & just trying to control the fish from jumping & spitting the hook or from getting into the nearby trees as hard to see what was really going on as I was down low at his level & didnt have the entire rod, well it all workedout & he was super stoked!
Took a few pics & as he was telling me how heavy she was & told him, ok let her go back into the lake so she can go home...So he did.
Imedietely after that on the third cast of our short outing, same exact senario! another quality bass & Dom was all about the battle & getting her ashore. Another few pics & a quick release.
This trip was not planned. Grabbed a rod, 1 pack of weight & hooks in my pocket & just three robo worms. Each fish hookset resulted in no more worm...
So fourth cast resulted in dad farming a tree & getting busted off.
He gets his shoes & jeans all wet & muddy, off to the car & he passes out on the drive home...

Very awesome Slater! Those smiles are a good indicator of what he thinks about this fishing thing.
I don't remember my first fish, but I'll take the clear memories of both my daughters' first fish with me till my last day.
