First step to being a fisherman...

want to see a little boy have some fun...
buy a bucket of minnows...
(not so fun for the minnow though)

I don't think they really enjoyed being picked up...
but Hotrod sure enjoyed catching them...
it is the first step to fishing...
catching minnows with your bare hands...



then showing off your catch to anyone that will pay attention...

oops they are a little slippery...and wiggly...
well for a little while anyways...
after a few trips out of the water...
they tend to get still...
if you know what I mean...
but he released them into the big lake...
I'm sure the ducks enjoyed them...

You are a good omie... I couldn't handle letting my grandbabies do that...ugh...

When middler was about 1...she loved worms...she had something in her hands...i asked her what she had...and she dumped her handful of worms in my hand... I screamed so loud...she never touched another worm:)))

Sweet little Hotrod will be out-fishing the whole family before you know it. Adorable pictures and what fun he was having with those minnows. Hugs

it is the first step, since i would never pick up a fish, daddy tried to get me to take them off his hook, i would not touch them if they were alive, this way HR is learning to touch live fish to prepare the way.
