They wanted to learn to fish the jig and did a great job by the end

Got out around 10ish or so and started out with a Terminator spinnerbait.."bluegill color".nnI didnt do to well on it so after 30-45 minutes I threw her on the bench and tied on a weightless watermelon seed/pearl Senko "wacky rigged".

Troy let me cast a few more times and I got another fish with in minutes. Then another fish, then another eventually he couldn't stand it any
