Signs of a True Fisherman

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Eastern Shore

My son, Tommy, has been sick this week and has missed a couple of days of school. However, he was well enough this evening to venture over to my neighbor's pond and catch his first fish of 2012a small largemouth bass on a jig tipped with a minnow.

He also had a nice 15-inch bass chase his bait, but he was not able to hook it.

I'm looking forward to going back with him to catch that bigger bass
