Don't sweat it, lil-dude. That's why they call it fishing and not catching. For every outing like you had today, i'm sure you'll have reports with plenty of fish to show off.

Keep at 'em!

Well if the commercial fisherman with the seven rods didnt fish them out. Go and get you some shrimp. Cut the shrimp in half and string it through the hook as if its a worm . Fish the bottom with a slip sinker on the Cumberland side . Good luck.
