    My oldest son wanted to fish again! We used to fish the run together every year but I guess the teenage years took over and he lost interest. Today he said he wanted to go again so I got out of work on time and off we went. Hit mid this evening, caught easy limits and played c&r for a few hours. Boated a bunch.
    Fished around mud. Tons of nets, didn't catch any silvers but saw a few caught. Water clarity was perfect but lots of logs floating so be careful.
    I really missed these trips with him....Good times. ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1526523027.923884.jpg ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1526523045.670316.jpg

    Nice story glad you guys got out and hope it keeps up. My Dad does not get out fishing much anymore at 76 but I am grateful for the times we go together after all he is the one that taught me and gave me that fishing bug. Hopefully your son is the one encouraging you to go with him on his boat if many years down the road.
