Recently got back into fishing after about 15 years. Caught this Largemouth on my last cast of the night after about 2 hours of no bites. Not huge, but good catch nonetheless.

Great fishing

on July 12th

I am new at fishing. As a mom, I'm trying to learn more so that I can get my younger son who is 7, into fishing more. We went this evening in hopes of catching a sunset. But we caught much more! We've fished here quite a few times before and generally catch something. But this evening, we caught the biggest pumpkinseed ever. It was bigger than my hand. Probably around 8". We were so excited to catch such a big fish. Most of the ones we catch are around 2-3". We were using worms. (Sorry for the out-of-focus picture. It kept spinning around on the line.) Unfortunately, it was so big, it swallowed the hook and I had to cut the line. Like I said, we're still new at fishing.
