While I sit and enjoy my pipe, my son comes over and entertains me with a nice fishing show... he's pulling in some nice large mouth bass from our pond this spring.
Life is good... life is extra good with a pipe and great kids!
Thanks guys... I only have about 1/2 acre. Pond is about 1 acre, total. My land stretches across the pond into the preserve. I'm in the middle of the city but my lot backs up to a several hundred acre nature preserve so it is like living in the country. When we bought 13 years ago, I didn't really care much for the house (it was just "ok") but I loved the location and view!
My son said 5-6 lbs... so probably 2-3. :rofl:
Actually, it had a large girth. It felt pretty heavy to me and may have been 5-6. I'm not a fisherman but he has always loved fishing, hunting... animals in general. He bought his first boat with his own money when about 9-10 years old. We lived on the river at the time and he would launch himself, fish for hours and then clean up everything and clean the fish caught afterward. His hobbies kept him out of trouble through those teen years!
Apatim, thats awesome! Im a country boy to the core and can't imagine living in the city. (I live near Nashville, but its far enough in the sticks that no one bothers me.) Way to make the best of city living! Thats a great catch. Fishing and pipes go together like peanut butter and jelly!
