One of the best parts of being an outdoorsman with a family is the opportunty to teach the next generation how to hunt, fish, and do other awesome outdoor activities. My son is 4 1/2 years old and our only child. He is an awesome trooper and always up for an adventure. One of the things we have started to do more together is go fishing at a local community lake park named Brushy Creek Lake Park. If you remember, I hunt on land that backs up to Brushy Creek and have been going to this lake to fish for carp for many years starting back when I moved to the northwest Austin suburb of Leander. Watching my son get excited about fishing reminds me of the time my Dad and I would go fishing for bluegills on Lake Dunlap and Lake McQueeny when I first started my outdoor adventure. We used to call it “Jerking Perch” as we refer to bluegills as perch in Texas. This also reminds me that the summer months are here. If you have kids of your own or in your family, this is the time of year to take them fishing!
