A young angler makes a monster-sized catch with some help from his dad.
The father son duo in the video below have been fishing on Georgia’s Lake Lanier for years. Over the years, the dad taught his son how to catch striped bass with lures by jigging and trolling.
Each time they went out on their boat, the father had a camera on to record their fishing lessons. While the boy learned how to fish, the camera captured his struggles and triumphs – triumphs like the massive fish he lands in this video.
With minimal help from dad, the young angler hooks and lands a 31-pound striped bass. The boy’s excitement might take you back to the time when you were young fisherman learning the finer points of angling.
Start the video at 4:45 to see the big catch.
YouTube user usprayj– who we assume is the father – uploaded the video back in 2008, so the the boy has had some time to polish his fishing skills. His father taught him some valuable lessons that he’ll probably teach his son or daughter in time.
