Default First trip father and son.

I saw that the conditions might be right to have my 9 year old son try yakking with me. I put him into one and let him float around a bit getting used to paddling. I climbed in the other one and away we went.
I tied a line on my stern with a carabiner one the other end so I could clip it to his stern while we floated/fished together or move it to his bow when he needed a tow. We went out with the sole purpose of getting used to paddling around and possibly casting a line out also. He did great!!
We ended up sightseeing and casting out a line. First cast at a sweet spot brought home dinner. 17" speck caught up river. Didn't fish much more and went sightseeing.

All in all it was a great day
