Well, we packed up the car with the gear, tackle, bait, lawn chairs and bug spray and headed east. When we got to the lake, I showed Jonah how to properly tie a jig (hook) onto his line. Luckily sock monkeys don't bleed because he hooked himself a few times, but he was a real trooper and didn't whine or complain. We talked about how much weight to use and what types of bobbers we have. Jonah decided he wanted to fish without a bobber at first, which worked fine until it got dark out. Then he used one of our new light up bobbers. DH taught Jonah how to cast, I was going to but he was kind of tired of my instructions and wanted some "dad" time. So, I left the two guys alone and started to drown my own worms. We stayed at the lake for a few hours, we all got a few bites, but didn't hook anything. Well, actually DH hooked something large, so large it literally took the bait and the hook. We packed up and headed for home around 9:30, this is when we noticed Jonah couldn't stay awake anymore.
Jonah's first fishing trip.
Jonah got a few really good bites, but wasn't able to hook a fish.
The sunset was very pretty on the water.
Jonah got pretty tired and fell asleep on the rocks, poor little guy.
