Gabe's been fishing off the dock pretty much every day since we got here. First thing in the morning, he runs to the dock. Whenever he has time during the day, off to the dock for more fishing. Late at night trying to get him to bed, he wants to fish just a little longer. Most of the time he's catching small rock bass. Occassionaly he catches a sucker and has to find someone to get it off the hook.
Well all the patient fishing has finally paid off. Gabe managed to hook a small mouth bass. It's a monster catch compared to his usual catch, and he's beaming. He spent most of the day wondering around camp showing everyone the fish over and over again.
If he keeps this up, he'll be going out on the boat to get some lake trout in Superior pretty soon.
