    I love to fish. I used to take the kids fishing all the time. Now they are grown so I go with the hubby. I never caught one that big though. Sure wish I would. I'm trying for a spotted trout and rainbow trout of good size and then I'm going to try that Hotwing sauce and bbq. [​IMG][​IMG]

    My dad has an awesome farm pond that's been stocked for over 25 years. We catch four pound largemouth regularly and there are bluegill and channel cats as well. Bullheads and snapping turtles too, of course. This was my daughters first largemouth. She was seven.

    My father loved to fish; his only real hobby. My favorite pics of my son as a child are of his holding up his catch, or just sitting and fishing. He is 33 and still loves to fish, went yesterday, we will be eating the catch for Mother's Day. His wife wanted a fishing trip for Mothers Day! Can't get better than that.

    I figure if you fish or have chickens, you can't be too bad.
