My son Gavin and I walked through the brisk air to a local pond. He asked me why we were going. I said my Dupage Angler friends Brim and Redhook caught some gills close to shore. We got there and I first looked deeper for crappie. After 5 minutes he says "There are no fish here this is the worst day ever!" He looks down and spots a gill and says "Daddy your friends are right they are close to shore!" I quickly shallowed a rod up to two feet and tipped an ice jig with a waxie. Gavin quickly caught two! At this point he says "This was the best day ever!" He followed it up with "Now that I pummeled them we can go home now." Our 20 minute trip had come to an end.
