Luke managed to haul in a 6 pound 13 ounce trout to take home, along with a "Big Fish Award" trophy!
Rog would tell you Luke and Papa's success was due undoubtedly to the intense casting and reeling practice (see how I throw those words around like I know what I'm talking about?) held this morning in our driveway before the Derby.
Whatever the reason for the big catch, it was a great day with minimal coughing!
|Papa Bill showing Luke how real fishermen do it. My dad is such a pro, in fact, that you can see the tackle box is actually Luke's plastic toolbox.|
|Love the tongue action|
|A nice man helped my dad and Luke net the fish so it wouldn't be the one to "get away".|
|The pride (on both of their faces!)|
|My stepmom said Luke didn't let go of his catch in the garbage bag the rest of the event. He even dragged it all the way back to the car.|
|That is one big fish! We told him that's about how big sister is going to be when she is born!|
