Breaking Records

Because every kid's first catch on his first fishing trip
is a whopper, no matter the size!

The man is the boy's boyscout troop den leader. At their last meeting he brought all the fixings for the boys to make their own fishing poles out of bamboo and yesterday they tried them out at the local park. Every child caught at least one fish which was nice. As with every first fishing trip, someone had to fall in the drink. That would be my boy. He was so disheartened that it seemed to almost overshadow the joy of his first catch, but he was secretly thrilled and showed us his pictures with his trademark goofy grin.

Man, you did good by those kids. Thank you for being their den leader.


  1. Is that a crappy? Looks like one, and he thinks we're just fishing.

  2. Kris, it's whatever fish thinks corn is ambrosia. ;)To translate: I've got nothin'. Your guess is as good as mine.

  3. Could be a bream, but for this time of year and cooler weather I say it is a crappie. Sorry I spelled it wrong the first time.

    Fried crappie are some of the tastiest fresh water fish you can eat in my opinion. They just have a lot of bones. Of course they have to be much bigger than that to make a good meal.

  4. Kris, I didn't even notice that the first time. Funny!

    Sue, the picture? Most surely. ;)

  5. That fish needs to be mounted! :)
