    My wife and I took my 90 year old dad out for his first trip on the river. We bottom bounced at the south end of Grassy Island. He caught on pretty quickly and ended up catching his limit including a couple that were 25 in. along with a large catfish and a couple shorts. Wife held up her end catching her limit and helping net. Ended up with 3 tickets. Blades with chartreuse or all chartreuse worked best for us. All in all it was a great day to be on the river with my wife and dad. Speed was 2.2 to 2.4. IMG_5240.JPG IMG_7523.jpeg IMG_5235.jpg

    What a great memory - and you captured it in pictures! I would love to take my dad out fishing if he was still around. He would have been 101 this August.
