It seems that Mason is a natural fisherman. The first day, he came home and when asked if he caught a fish he held out his arms and said, "I caught a fish THIS BIG!" He was very patient with the fishing. He stood for two hours holding the fishing pole and watching for the bobber to go under. As soon as it did, he would reel in his catch. At first he caught a little perch. As he was reeling it in, a big mouth bass swam up and ATE THE PERCH! Mason reeled it in and was happy as could be with his catch. The next day, the big boys went out on a boat and caught some huge stripers (the fish, not the dancing girls!) The fish were as tall as Mason and made for a delicious dinner that night!
At the end of the week, Mike took Matt and Mason out on a small row boat to fish one more time. Mason caught a couple of keepers and secured his place as best 3 year old fisherman in the family!
