Texas City "Honey Hole" with the kids

Had my nephew call me yesterday and he said "Uncle John will you take us fishing? Dad has taken us every night this week and we only caught some catfish. Please!!!" What can say to that? Loaded up after work and hauled 4 kids 7 - 14 years young out to the spot. We had a blast! The 14 year old didn't want to use anything but arties so i tied on a Roach BA and handed him a pole. First cast he smacked a 20" trout! "WOW UNCLE JOHN! This is the biggest fish I have ever seen! hehehee...The look on his face! The others got rigged up with live shrimp with a little split shot and it was on! Those kids were jumping up and down in the boat hollering and screaming having the time of their life! A boat that was nearby even left because of the racket I guess. We ended the night at 10:30pm with 32 trout to 23" all caught on shrimp and Roach BA's.

Sorry GSMAN...No pics. I left the camera in the office on my desk.

Those kids will remember that fishing trip for the rest of their lives. I can hear them now telling their kids about the night they went to the Texas City "Honey Hole!"

BTW....I kept more than 5 and loved every minute of it!

Now you've gone and done it!
Those kids are now spoiled for life.
Speckhunter your right! Those kids will never be the same. Nice going Zork! Just kiddin' I'm glad you had a good time. July 15th just seems so far away. Is there anything I can bring? Let me know!

Good going Zork! You are officially his favorite uncle!!
Can you take me fishing, Uncle John? :biggrin: You will be my favorite Uncle in the whole wide world. :)
Now thats what Im talking bout..........A trout slamming good time wit tha kiddo's. Zork .....you are my official hero....I can see it now.. kids jumping all around scaring the fish away...I wonder if thats why the other boat left....don't sound like yall scared them away.... they probably left cause yall were "slammin" trout. Thats what every dad and uncle should be doing with todays kids.....I think we would be in a better place if kids had mentors to take them fishing instead of letting video games be the babysitter..... Way to go Zork!

July 15 ....Runge Park.... Be there or be square.....2cool meet and greet fish fry
Any questions pm Zork
Great job!
I bet you all would have had a good time even if you didn't catch fish.
I wish I would have had an uncle like you. :)
