Huron Metro Park Fishing With Papa

What a beautiful day we had at the Huron Metro park on Huron Drive off of I-275.  I took my grandson Kyle there to do a little fishing and enjoy this summer cool spell.  We fished from the dock going out into the lake, and could see 10-12 inch bass swimming around in the shallow water.  I think that the bass and panfish were mostly off their nest and they didn’t seem very interested in what we were offering them.

About an hour after we arrived two gentlemen arrived with their 5 year old grand daughter.  they weren’t there 5 minutes and Lacey was reeling in a very nice pumpkin seed sunfish much to Lacey’s delight.  Grandpa (Papa) Chris hooked several more in just a few minutes and would hand the rod and reel to Lacey for her to “bring in the big one!”  Lacey’s other Papa (Mike) was fishing off the shore but not having the success that Papa Chris and Lacey were having.  Papa Chris used to bring his daughter Sascha (Lacey’s mom) hear when she was a little girl.  They live in Taylor so it’s not to far of a drive for them.

I have fished with all of my 14 grandkids except two in California, so I know that “snacks” are an important part of the whole fishing expedition thing.  Lacey had plenty of snacks and a nice cold coke to sip on when needed.

It was very pleasant meeting this sweet little fisher lady and her two Papa’s!  It’s just a wonderful memory building way to spend some quality time with the grandkids, and Lacey and Kyle enjoyed the time with their Papa’s!
