I took my 8 year old son to Egypt Bend today and enjoyed a beautiful day on the river. We didn't catch a lot but we fished from 9:30 to 3:30 so we missed the best parts of the day. We started up river in about 3' of water throwing a fluke and a Rebel crawdad between the ledges. I caught one on the crank and he had a few bites on the fluke. When we got down to 7'-8' of water I tied a watermelon Zoom tiny fluke on a dropshot on my sons rod (thanks for the tip wayne /tu/). We got a few bites but didn't boat anything so I hit some laydowns that Garry and I caught a few on in the tourny last Saturday. I caught one on a jig and one on a lizard and my son started throwing his dropshot around the wood. He made my day by out fishing me! He caught several largemouth, a few bluegill, and his first smallie. Everything we caught was small but we still had a great day. I am looking forward to many more days of being out fished.
