... At my cabin in DEEP East Texas. It has been raining all week, and today is the first day it hasn't been wet. The lake is up 2 feet in the past four days, the water is muddy, and it's too cold still for the fish to begin spawning. I was convinced that no one would catch a fish.

And then my seven year old girly girl cheerleader daughter went and caught a three pound bass. Not huge, but it's the first fish she's ever landed. I'm a mighty proud papa right now. I'm also ashamed that I, a self-proclaimed master fisherman, didn't catch anything.
