    Default A very quick trip

    I got to take my twelve year-old daughter fishing this afternoon. We had a short window to fish in, but she wanted to go. I'm afraid the day is coming when she won't want anything to do with "old Dad", so I take about every chance I get. We got to the ramp and a guy hollered to ask if we were going crappie fishing. I said yes and he asked if we wanted some minnows he was about to throw out. I said yes and my daughter ran over to fetch them while I prepped the boat. We got out on the water and I cut the jig off one of the 10-foot jig poles and rigged it up for a minnow (as best one can on a 10-foot jig pole). Crept up on a stump and Sweetheart dropped her minnow right beside a log under water. I thought she had gotten hung up when the bobber went under and the boat was drifting a bit. But she's hollering "I've got one! I've got one!". I take a closer look just in time to see what I'm pretty sure was the broadside of a ol' whiskers rolling over. Fish threw the hook, and Sweetheart was shaking with excitement!!!

    I didn't catch a fish... didn't even get a bite.

    AND it was the best fishing trip I've been on in a long time.

    She thought we were just fishing....

    The best part of fishing for sure! Congrats Dad.
    Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
