Spring is all but here, and we will all be hitting the ol' Fishin' Hole hard. Lots of us have children or grandchildren who will be joining us. Some for the first time. I can remember the first fishing trips for all of my 3 children. I'm sure all of you have similar trips that will be with you forever. However, how many can remember your first fishing trip, your first fish, your first fishing buddy? I don't remember the specifics, it was probably something like this... Fishing for very small bluegills in the spillway pool of a small lake outside of Brownstown, In with my grandmother. I got my first rod and reel as a gift for Easter, and put it to good use that afternoon. While we fished a lot with my father and uncles, none of them took panfishing as seriously as grandma. God I miss her this time of year.... How about the rest of you?
