Had a young man and his family on the MissD this weekend. He has restored my faith in today's youth. According to his mom, Paul has been up to his eyeballs in YouTube videos on fishing. Paul helped me put rods out, picked out rigs... Watched intently while I trimmed cut bait and rigged.

As we trolled some fertile waters off Rochester, Paul told me he wanted to catch a Steelhead and a King. Not a challenge I took lightly... Especially from a 9 year old kid.

At the end of the day... As the family walked off the dock, I heard Paul ask his mother " We are coming back out with Capt Matt Again next year ..Right?"

The smiles from young kids who just caught the biggest fish of their lives never gets old .... IMG_20200718_180505_137.thumb.jpeg.6426f170928f335fd90becb876b6ae41.jpeg0718200928_HDR.thumb.jpeg.0661c31e166436deb01c9a04263fec36.jpeg0718200858_HDR.thumb.jpeg.1c24f9cf8d904d505d34e8239d0fc71f.jpeg

This is a prime example of the type of experience our kids need and he'll remember every aspect of that for the rest of his life. For me it was a 12 inch smallmouth caught with my dad 70 years ago and I still remember every moment of that experience, the exact spot, what the day was like etc., and can still see it all in my minds eye. This is the kind of stuff we need to pay attention to and provide to our youth to offset all the other crap going on in today's world. The payoff could be huge and well worth the time and effort:smile:

There is nothing better than taking kids fishing and watching their eyes light up. Kudos to you Captain!
