Labor Day Weekend Bluegill Fishing
I got the chance to go out fishing with my dad and my two year old son for some bluegill fishing to get him some fishing action before the summer came to an end. We headed to a small lake off the beaten path in northern Wisconsin where there are many bluegills and bass. As expected he was able to catch a handful of fish and it was a great moment for 3 generations of my family.
Whenever we travel to grandma and grandpa’s house, our two year old has two things on his mind as soon as he gets out of the van, find his toy Ranger boat (which he has dismantled) and look for his Lightning McQeen fishing pole

Saturday morning brought great news for him as we were going to take Grandpa’s (Moondog) boat out fishing. We rigged up a couple of bobber poles, including his own little fishing pole, which he got to use for fishing, for the first time.
We got to the lake and had a little trouble finding some biting fish, but once we did, my little guy got to catch several bluegills and he did a great job reeling in the fish. My dad and I helped set the hook, but once we did, he did the rest (with a little help keeping the rod tip up).
He had a blast helping put worms on the hooks, playing with baits in the livewell, and watching the other boats on the lake. Here are some pictures from our Labor Day weekend fishing trip.
Good luck fish’n
