Great trip

Spencer Cookson
Did a 4-hour bass fishing trip with my 11-year-old daughter and we had a blast. Since we are inexperienced anglers, Spencer (our guide) showed us everything from how to cast to how to not get our lines stuck. Since we were there for fun, he scouted a few locations where it was easy to get bites and we ended up catching a lot of bass. The highlight of the day was when my daughter hooked a big pickerel, and Spencer helped her reel it in and land it in a net. Tons of fun - would highly recommend!
