Born To Fish
Location: Gilbert Run Park
My 4.5 year old son caught this 20” 4.25 lbs Rainbow at Gilbert Run Park on Saturday on his little Zebco rod loaded with 4 lbs line. When the fish bit, his rod was heading into the pond, I went to get it but he grabbed it first and refused to let me help him in any way. I have never been so intense after seeing the fish and every time I tried to help him he ran away and told me "no daddy it’s my rod and my fish", after about ten minutes of turning grey he dragged it onto land where I was egger to grab it. My son has always been very lucky, always out fishing me and his mom when we trout fish.
