Do you remember catching your first fish?

Darren went fishing with his dad one morning at Eagle Lake.  The fishing was really bad, but we all hoped that Darren would come back with something.  What is better than a little boy catching his first fish?

And sure enough, when they came back Darren was proudly showing off the fish he caught.  I told him I wanted to take a picture to capture the moment.  This sweet little guy asked if his little sister could be in the picture with him.

But what no one had the heart to tell Darren was that this was not an Eagle Lake Trout.  In fact, it was a fish that’s illegal to keep.  Dad knew that when he reeled it in, but there was no way he was going to say, “Can’t keep it son.”

Sometimes a dad’s gotta do what a dad’s gotta do!
