We are fortunate to have a small lake on our property that just may or may not have some pretty darn large bass in it... shhh don't tell anyone about our secret fishing spot! Last summer we had all been out several times and caught many fish at various times, all but Lucas! This boy became so discouraged but still continued to try, he was determined to catch a fish! One night after dinner, he and I decided to take the kayaks out and give it another try with 'just a few more' casts. I wish I would have recorded his screams of joy as he not only landed but got the fish into the kayak! Like a true fisherman, the story of how long it took to reel the bass in and how large it was grew by every step as we walked back to the house to tell Dad and his brothers! This was one of those moments that I hope will be remembered for many years to come and just the thought of it makes my heart so happy all over again.
