That shows how things can happen in milliseconds. Jeffnles1, glad your son is doing OK.
Crockett, 5 years old is not too young to start fishing. recently, my wife and I took our 4 year old to a pond loaded with bluegill. He had a blast! Now, he wants to take his older brother. Bluegill are a good way to get them started as it is non-stop action. If you don't have any activity, they get bored and lose interest.
