Dupage Angler Kid Catches Cold Weather Gills

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.

What a sweet story and your son and you will always remember that day too. Best part of it all! You never know what is going to snatch your line. The trick is to not give up.

Good job Gavin!
