Hi all.New member here. Yesterday my son caught his first bass. He is four years old. He was cranking on that Zebco mini with all his might. It was a whopper. Must have been at least 10 or 12 ounces, but I'm sure that to him it was a whale. He really bragged about it to his mom. Told her it was as big as his arm (which it was). I was sure he would panic when I showed him how to lip it, but he grabbed it just like a pro and showed it to every one in sight. Daddy was proud. Oh yeah, he skunked me yesterday. Son 2 - daddy 0.
