jack went fishing this weekend in delaware with his uncle shawn and cousins adam and alise. this was his first time fishing, and so expectations were low. however, even as they normally catch little bluegills, jack somehow landed an 18-inch carp! here are pictures for proof.
it only goes downhill from here, jack!
now he wants me to take him fishing, which is a bit of a problem since i haven't been fishing since i was 12. i'm afraid if i caught a fish i would freak out and not know what to do! maybe i need to take lessons from uncle shawn...
here's the young man and the lake.
and here's the amazing catch.
