Details:After a couple of months teaching my 3 1/2 year old daughter to throw a plastic worm across the pool, we travelled up to Lake Guntersville, AL, about 2 hours (about 1hr 20 min once I know where I'm going!).

Rented a boat, bought bait, etc. for her First fishing trip. She didn't want to get in the boat! Finally got her in the boat. Dropped anchor about 5 min from the dock in case she "freaks." Instead, she asked every 21.2 seconds to go back to shore!

Pulled up anchor and drove the boat 10 min, under the bridge and down the lake until the dock no longer in view. She settled right down and began to fish! In the end we caught her first fish up against an island about 10 min from where we put in.

The two fish caught were on leadheaded jigs (White) with blue plastic "waxworm-shaped" bait on the hook. Fished the shallows by the bank, some with steady retrieves, and some with jerks and pauses.

I caught one there too. Hers was bigger. :)

No great "wow" from strangers I'm sure, but a day I (and hopefully she) will never forget!
