Today I had a family trip on Shasta Lake.  I had the privilidge to fish with one of the most enthusiastic young fishermen I have ever had on my boat.  At 11 yrs old, Owen was asking every question he could think of about fishing.  He asked about the boat, the Lake, the fish, the gear, and even jumped in and helped with the downriggers.  The pacing in the boat inbetween fish was hilarious, and not once were the other family members in the boat able to get to a rod before Owen had it pulled out of the rod holder and fighting a fish.  Its days like today that reinforce why I enjoy taking people fishing.
