Excellent.
It's great how kids get so excited about it.

You're bringing those kids up right.

Great job! I hope he gets a fish real soon. You think he's excited now just wait 'til he's pullin' in his own fish. It will be like having two Ted Nugents in your boat. Because you're gonna go wild too. Good Luck! Keep us posted. We want to know when it happens. (Oh, and get some pics too please )

They always said "If you go hunting with your kids, you'll never have to go hunting for your kids."
