She caught 11 fish, crappie and white perch!! Swam at the beach before we left!! Oh I only got 3 total!! She is still telling the story! Nice to have time with just her! 8)

WH,

   Those are always special days. I have 3 granddaughters (3, 7 & 9) and they are a hoot on the water. I frequently hook a fish while they aren't watching and ask them to hold it for me then they realize a fish on and we argue over whose fish it is since my pole but they "caught" it. Of course they always win. The girls like to catch and hand me bait out of the bait bucket or live well (if using live bream for catfish bait). If catfish for big fish I get the fish in the net then let the kids "catch" him an dpull him in the boat even though sometimes it really does take a lot of effort for kids that age to land a 5-15 lb fish. Much bigger than that is more than they can handle.

    When fishing was slow with my kids near that age we always had back up plans - visit the sandbar and look for mussel shells, go look for baby birds or eggs in the hypericum (sp) bushes growing on the old tree stumps in the lake, go shoot snakes in the willows or rocks (Kinder/Gentler me has since renounced such activities) or run the boat into the cattails and catch the big green rain frogs living here. With the girls now if no fish we still have similar things they can go do around the lake.

    The goal is not to catch fish - it is for the kids to have fun. Congratulations and keep up the good times.

That sounds like a fantastic day!  My grand daughter is only 3 months old so it will be a while before I get to do the same,  I bet she tells everyone about it, that's a big day for a young girl with grandpaw!
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,
