One Proud Unkle

My Brother sent me these pictures of his kids each catching there first Striper. They live near Lake Powell, and some of my brothers friends took them out on separate days in their boat. Riley caught a bunch when they went out, and Coulter caught 23 on their outing. Not only did both of them catch their share, They can now remind me that they've caught a fish that I haven't. Based on the smiles, I would say that they had a blast. Great job you two!
Also, a big thank you to the fisherman willing to take kids fishing, and teach them how it's done. If you ever get the chance to help a child learn to fish, please take the opportunity. You won't regret it.
Riley with a nice Striper!

Coulter with one of the 23 Stripers that were landed.


  1. First off, you have every reason to be proud of your niece and nephew. They caught a bunch of those Stripers (I have never fished for them, either.) The smiles on those faces tell the story. Memory makers for sure. Secondly, Amen to taking a child fishing and helping them be successful. You may have just a changed a life when you do it.

  2. Don't feel bad, we all have that one species we haven't caught, yet.
