RE:Another good Largemouth, out with the boy

I was telling Roop the other day how my daugther did with a popper on Spy Pond in Arlington one summer day, before we moved out to Seattle so she was very young.

Anyway, I put a popper on the line and had her reel it in. I told her it was a puppet, and if she pulled it it would pop, gurgle, twitch and splash. Here she was having a grand time playing with the puppet when the lilly pads started to quiver, the water became unsettled and out from the depths came a huge largemouth bass. It exploded on her little water puppet and scared the ever-living crap out of her! She was horrified.

Bad daddy forgot to tell her that a big green scary ugly fish with red eyes and a mouth like a bucket was going to come kill her puppet! Ooops!
