A couple months ago we bought a little 14 ft. fishing boat. Since we've had it we have only missed one weekend of fishing on the lake catching my favorite fishy- the rainbow trout. It's cool because Cole loves being in the boat. We give him a bucket of rocks that he can toss overboard whenever he wants to, and we give him any goodie or candy he wants. It works like a charm! We've been out all day until it's almost dark and Cole is still a trooper even without a nap, which is quite amazing. We're learning the techniques of trolling, I know we grew up making fun of people who do this kind of fishing. "Fishing at it's finest" as dad would say, but hey at least we're not bobber fishing, not yet anyways:) Well it works for us and Cole likes it so I guess that's all that matters. Its fun times spent together and we pull out nice 12 inchers all day long. Woo hoo! I even cleaned a fish for the first time last weekend.
It was soooo easy, I should have done that a long time ago!!!
