We Saved the Best for Last. Part 4 of 4

My last day of fishing over the New Year break, and hands down my favorite came on Saturday January 2nd.  I had my best and favorite fishing buddies aboard for the day. The kids wanted to catch some trout so I pointed the truck east out of the driveway and we were off to hopefully do just that.  We made it to the ramp about 30 minutes later after a quick stop for gas and snacks.  Having plenty of snacks onboard is very essential when planning a fishing trip with kids.  If you think they eat a lot while at home, you should see what they can put away when they get on a boat!  I’ll write more on ways to ensure success on the water while fishing with your kids later.

After launching the boat and a short 10 minute boat ride we were pulling into a creek that I hadn’t fished in several years, but based off of current conditions had a hunch would hold some fish.  I pulled the boat off of plane at the mouth of the creek and stopped about 100 yards short of where I wanted to start fishing.  I dropped the trolling motor, and while quietly making my way over to the spot, gave each of the kids a juice box and a snack.  In this case, it was some of momma’s fried chicken!  

 They started catching on the very first stop and didn’t quit until it was time to go home at dark. What a trip with memories that are sure to last a lifetime. Gold Broken Glass Mirrolure 17mr’s and curly tail grubs did the trick. We didn’t find any big fish, but every fish is a trophy in the eye of a kid.  Proof is in their smiles.
