It's not always about the largest bass.
This story goes back to the early 1980's when I was just beginning to teach my 4 year old son, Tommy to bass fish. We were at Cypress Lake in Benton, LA just north of Shreveport. The smaller (1-2 lbs.) bass were schooling at the surface that morning and I tied a floating wooden popper onto Tommy's line and helped him to cast into a small school.
As the picture indicates, he caught two nice little bass on a single cast - one on each set of treble hooks! He's 32 now and still an avid bass fisherman. I believe that it was that day that "hooked" him for life (pun intended).

Great point on that one Tom. Get them off the video games and take outdoors for a bit. Thanks for sharing.
