Jake and Hanna's First Fish

Caught at my parents cabin (as was Jake's first fish shown mounted on my office wall).

It's a sure thing with worms so I don't fish that way, but it's good for the kids because they're 'catching' and not just 'fishing'.

Hanna lost a couple, landed this one and put down her rod in order to focus on counseling Jake. She became an instant expert - advising Jake on all aspects of fishing or that he should check his worm because he 'missed a bite'.

I had a hard time talking her into releasing it so we had to let it swim around in a bucket for a while - first she said wanted to eat it, then she said she wanted Grammie to eat it.
