Baisdens' Beauties

Even on tax day, I enjoyed an evening (into the night) of fishing and laughter with four of the Baisden siblings and my grand-daughter, Kendra.

Paige and Kendra seemed totally contented to let the guys do the hard part of fishing (actually fishing). They were very good at the subtleties of fishing (giving encouragement to others).

Parker amazed me with his natural instincts with a Rapala lure. The Spotted Sea Trout he caught would have made any fisherman proud. These two were only part of his big haul.

He even learned how to throw my small cast-net. We will smoke some of the mullet to make fish dip.

Logan and Camden caught their first fish, ever. I always insist that a fisherman's first love should be kissed to make it unforgettable.

Logan caught a Sailor's Choice, and could not have been happier.

Camden had the aptitude, the will, and the purservearence of someone twice his age. He is going to be a terrific fisherman with a genuine love for the outdoors. His first fish was a catfish, which he willingly kissed.. What a nice night it was on the river! We need to do it again, soon.
