fishing with finn

I took Finn to do some bluegill fishing. We went looking for red worms but only found nightcrawlers which are too big but we cut them down to size. Finn caught some really beautiful fish. One bluegill in particular was very dark and had a thick orange outline that really stood out. I tried to get him to kiss one for good luck but he was having none of it. We came across a jonboat that had a shark painted on it. Finn was very impressed by that and asked me to take a picture of it. We did other manly things of course like peeing outside.

Nice rod/reel combo (light rig). I wonder if the preserved wax worms would allow you a smaller presentation when other bait is scarce. Is it true that the darker bream/gills are called warmouths?

warmouth are a different species. they look similar but have much larger mouths than bluegills and bream. we do have them down here but we didnt catch any on this day.

With those orange tips, it's almost guaranteed to be a wayward greenie, or a greenie x bluegill hybrid....I catch a lot of those in warm, dark ponds.....

Good on you for getting the little guy out!

I want to Read More. Your boy looks really one happy kid. I think hes quite a handful but in a good way. You must have had a lot of times spent fishing and when he grows up hunting the bigger beasts. Great job in raising the kid. I hope you’ll have more stories to share in the future.
