The Big Catch

This is a first for Jonas, our grandson. He got to go fishing with Papa while us girls went to garage sales. He just turned three and didn't really know what he was getting himself into.
Papa had a little pole, just his size.
Jonas had no qualms about picking up worms for his bait.
He sat on the bank and watched his bobber go up an down. He wasn't too happy with that after watching Papa with a larger rod that was being reeled in. He wanted to do the act of reeling instead of just sitting.
Snack Time! Jonas started eating his snack and said "Papa, the ducks are coming to visit me"! Little did he know they were after his food.

Papa told him, "They want your food, Jonas. Give them some". He did and the black one with the red on his head tried to take a little finger with it.
He was fine and didn't even cry after getting nipped at.

With one little mishap of Jonas falling in the water, all in all, it was a good day. He caught the big one. lol
See the little Blue Gill he's holding up.

Well, time to get back to fishing and hope for the "BIG ONE" next time. Good Job Jonas!

I hope you all had a great weekend and have a prosperous week! Thanks for "bobbing" over.
