I woke up this morning around 6. I looked outside, sipping my coffee, and realized how calm and nice the water was. I thought it would be a great morning for my son and I to catch a few . So I woke him up and we hit the water. It was a bit chilly but my son's blood was pumping with excitement. It was the first time we got to hit the lake together this year. We were out all morning casting in every direction and trying at every depth. Nothing. Not even a nibble. I felt bad for him but I think he had a good time. Being outside spending time with him beats being inside near a tv or Xbox or whatever. So Tyler and I will have to wait another day to tag team the lake! Later that day in the afternoon, the sun was out from behind the clouds showing its warm face. My Amazing/Beautiful Girl Nikki was over and I talked her into going in the boat. I dont think she likes fishing all too much but i think she is coming around. She sees how crazy and excited I get and maybe its rubbing off onto her. If not, oh well. She got to relax from working a stressful job and the oprotunity to see some turtles on good old Lake Fairfield.

Danny Boy won the tourney on opening day. This is the rod n reel he used to catch that whopper with.
They sell this combo at BPS for like 70 dollars. Its a Pflueger Trion GX-7 Spinning Rod and Reel. The GX-7 combo is very smooth casting and retrieving. Its a great bang for your buck.
