Fathers, sons and Bluegills...Nic Kmett and his father, Mark had a wonderful day fishing the Savannah River. They launched at Stokes Bluff Landing in South Carolina and went up river to a large 'oxbow' lake. The Blue Gill and other brim types were really biting that day. We brought home 18 fish, released a dozen others that on another day would have been keepers, all in about 4 hours. Many of the keeper Blue Gills were nearly 10 inches in length, and very plump.

Very nice bluegills, good job Nic!

Little Kids - Big Brim - Big Smiles
By Richard Lee
My wife, Jean, and I teach the Single Parent Bible Fellowship Class at Rock Springs Baptist Church in Easley SC. For three years now we have taken the kids and adults fishing at Harold Wilson's pond. This is a 1.5 acre pond which he installed for irrigating his nursery. Being an avid fisherman, he has nurtured this pond to the point that 1.5 to 2 lb. brim are the norm. Please imagine an 8 year boy who had never caught a fish hauling a 2 lb. brim on light weight gear and saying repeatedly "come to daddy, come to daddy'. Our desire is to see kids get hooked on fishing rather than all the other things this world has to offer.

Take a kid fishing and bring your camera! These are a few of the places to take them fishing and get some great pictures.

Kids, fishing and smiles naturally go together. Take a kid fishing and you just might change the course of their life. Then take pictures and send us one of them holding their prized catch. We will happily post it here.
