Stick 'em up! It's not what you think... those are not guns the kids have in their hands, they are holding the Fogo Rocket Fishing Rod. Instead of casting your line the traditional way and getting your hook all tangled or worse yet hurting someone (like Ben Stiller in "Something About Mary", you insert the hook and worm inside a capsule and shoot it out of the rod. It worked perfectly! I highly recommend this rod for fishing with little ones.
Chris had the great idea of going fishing for his Father's Day. We went to a lake north of our house that we have driven past a hundred times and have always wanted to go to. It was a beautiful lake and a great day for fishing. We got a little bit of a late start, ahem, that was my bad. Chris caught four fish (which we released). The highlight of the day was seeing a big mouth bass jump out of the water and spit Chris's hook out of his mouth. That was the one that got away.
For the most part, the kids had a great time. Although Hannah did not want to have anything to do with the fish once it was out of the water. It got a little hot towards the middle of the day, but we had plenty of drinks to keep us hydrated. We are definitely going back to this lake for another day of sun and fun.
