Logan Horwitz is my daughter Meghan’s son, and they hail from Chicago. Logan has not had much of a chance to do any fishing, and when he landed his first fish they could hear him hollering in Alaska. You would of thought he just landed a 20 pound brown trout! Logan and his dad Mark caught four or five rock bass, and each time Logan went “bonkers.”
It is so “cool” to see the kids eyes light up when they set the hook, and reel in their prize, all by themselves. Jacob’s dad Tony supervised him, and I took Keegan under my instruction, along with his older cousin Quinn. Jacob and Logan like to compete against one another, so there was a whole lot of noise every-time a fish was landed. There are always “bragging rights” for the biggest fish, nomatter how old you are! Keegan is more laid back, but managed to land four fish himself. Jacob caught the only two sunfish of the day, as the “ladies” were content to snap pictures and lay by the water on a blanket. It was a gorgeous Northern Michigan day that these three amigos will not soon forget, and neither will their Papa. It’s all about the smiles!
As a bonus to our fishing expedition we were treated to the “cry of the loon!” There is nothing that stirs that wilderness experience like hearing, and seeing, this elusive bird. We weren’t fast enough with our camera’s, but we’ll carry the memory around in the index file of our mind for a long while.
