One Big Fish For 4 Year Old!
Region: North Eastern
Location: North East River
While taking my 4 year old son, Jaymis Maddox fishing this evening for his birthday, he caught his first Largemouth Bass which was 21 inches and 4.8 lbs. He has been fishing since he was 3 catching sunfish and perch, but this is the first time he caught a fish that was highly worthy of recognition and teaching him the ropes I was highly proud of him....as as you can tell so was he. He caught this fish using a rubber worm on a bobber on the North East River. Herbs tackle shop was closed today but we will be going up there tomorrow to get his entry into the Maryland Fishing Challenge at Sandy Point next month. I urge all parents to make their child happy when they say "I want to go fishing" and introduce them to the outdoors by taking them to the river or pond for a memorable day they will not only enjoy, but never forget! Way to go Son…daddy is proud of you!!!
