Your personal and fishing accomplishments:

Best Fishing Story: My son and I were out fishing 3 1/2 years ago(On the Androscoggin River). He was 4. It was our 4th or 5th time out. He still had not caught a bass. We had been out for a couple hours. You could tell he was getting discouraged, because about 15 mins. after stopping he wanted to start the big motor and move. (I would let him drive at idle)He was at the point he didn't even want to real my fish in. I told him give me a few more mins. and we would go. I decided to switch poles with him. He was throwing a senko.(wasn't letting sit long enough), I was throwing a pig and jig. So he takes the pig & jig and throws it out, I turn and get on the trolling motor, and I hear Daddddy!!! I look back. He says I'm stuck. Poles bent right over and almost pulling him of the back of the Skeeter. I run to the back of the boat and grab the middle of the rod to give a little tug, to see if he's stuck or has a fish. I could feel the head thrash. I told him your not stuck, that's a fish. He says you take it. No way I told him, this ones all yours. It took him 5 mins. to real the fish in. That fish pulled him all over the back of that boat. It was a 4 lb smallie, what a pig. What a moment I will never forget.
