Crappie at Waverly Lake


This afternoon when I got home from work, Brayden was suffering from a case of cabin fever and wanted to get out of the house. He begged and pleaded that I take him to the park. 

I debated back and forth in my mind whether or not to ask him if he wanted to go fishing. I knew that once I committed, I would have to follow through. 

I'm glad that I did. We headed down to the local sporting goods store and purchased a couple of fishing licenses and headed over to the park with about an hour of fishing light left in the day. 

I was just as excited as the boys and offered that we stop at the first available fishing spot along the bank of the local pond.

After a few casts with a bead head woolly bugger, I had a good tug on the line and set the hook. Everyone was excited as I pulled in the fish. 

It felt like a good sized fish, relatively speaking. I saw that it was a nice crappie and let them know. I told Brayden to get the net and delayed the retrieval of the fish. 

With Bruce's help, Brayden successfully netted the fish. Our first fish of 2017!


Tight Lines & Happy Fishing!
