Gone Fishing

My father-in-law took my son and me fishing for the day. He hired a guide and we went out on Richland Chambers Reservoir. This would prove to not be any ordinary fishing trip. Grandpa hired a guide named Cory to take us out on Richland Chambers Reservoir to show us the right places to find the best fish.

This lake is stocked with Hybrid Striper/White Bass. These fish can grow up to 10 pounds. They get their size and fight from the Striper and their good taste from the Bass. They are a popular sporing fish all over the south.

The trip started out early on a the hottest day of the year so far. After a couple of false starts, the fish started to behave. My son quickly learned how to fight a fish onto the boat. He bravely stepped up to bait his own hook on occassion.

By 11 am we had all caught our limit and still had time to catch a few catfish. Our guide cleaned all the fish for us to finish a perfect day.
