Do Your Kids Fish?

Recommended Posts

It seems like most people start fishing because of their parents. I know the reason I started fishing was my dad and my grandpa(s), so I was wondering if the fishing nuts here rubbed off on their kids. So, for the guys/gals with kids, do they love fishing as much as you?

I 've created a monster (two of em) my boys are in their early and mid twentys, fished their whole lifes and sincerly love the sport. In many ways they're much better fishermen than I. I might not leave them a lot of $$$$ when I die,  but they can alway be thankful that their dad got them into fishing.

OMG yes!!!  My little boy is a fishing addict!  He is 5 now and when we are on the water, i have to force him to stop and drink water and to eat.  He is already catching fish on slider worms and 1/8 oz spinnerbaits.  I tried to get him to use a Senko but he is just like me....aint having it lol.  I was so proud the day he put 4 casts under an overhanging tree and caught 3 bream and a bass! 

 

Proud papa here!

My boy is not yet advanced as some as yalls. My son is 2and a half. I take him with me as much as i can. I finally got to where i can take him on my boat without taking another person and still get some fishing in. He loves to help me reel in fish. I posted in another thread but he was reeling in a popR that i casted out on his snoopy rod and hooked a 13inch bass.

My son would rather watch fishing videos on youtube than watch thomas the train or cartoons! He also seems content when hes helping me organize tackle to spooling reels.

I hope that he continues with his intrest in fishing. Oh and my son has a stuffed animal that he has to take everywhere with him,sleep with it, eat with it, you name it. It is a stuffed toy catfish. He tells the people at church that he caught it. Lol

And to answer the op, my brothers and i learned to fish from our dad

I have 2 kids a  6 year old son and a 4 year old daughter. both love fishing. my son does not have the patience to work on casting and I don't have the patience to untangle lines so he and his sister play in the boat while I fish and they take turns reeling them in.

My older daughter has lost interest in fishing.  My younger one still likes to go after the panfish.

i've been blessed with two boys, ages 9 & 7.  we fish here on the lake just about all year.  i've taken them on some guided trips when we've gone to the beach.  the trips are pricey, but the pictures are my desk are priceless to me.  the oldest is more interested and can hang in there a lot longer when the bite is slow.  the 7yr old is done when the bites stop.  i was an avid wakeboarder for about ten years & didnt fish at all.  a few years back the old knees started telling me to give them a rest & i started fishing a little.  i used to fish with my dad when i was a kid.  well, i caught the bug again.  it's one of the few sports i can do the rest of my life & with my boys.  the wakeboat is now second to the triton & i have a chronic case of the bait monkey.....but there are worse ways to blow money!  i just wish my dad was still around to "set the hook" with us.

Fishing is a family thing here.  My 9 year old fished a couple tournements with me last year.  My four year old hangs in for a couple hours at a time.  I bought a minnow bucket for when the youngest goes with me.  I buy a half a dozen minnows, put them in the bucket and the 4 year old fishes for hours.

Its a family tradition for at least the 4 generations my family has been here.. My son is my tournament partner, and my dad never says no to a day out on the water.

I have 3 kids, two girls ages 2 and 6, and one boy age 4.  My oldest likes to fish for panfish mostly, but when we stop reeling fish in and the bite slows down she immediately loses interest.  My son on the other hand loves to fish.  When he was 2 he started wanting to collect lures instead of other toys.  We would just take the trebles off and he would put them on his snoopy pole and cast out in the yard.  His favorite show to watch was Fishing with Roland Martin.  This past year he caught his first couple of bass on his own using a senko.  It was cool to see him do it.  He also has learned how to cast a spinning reel, which I couldn't believe he actually would be able to do it, but he stuck with it and is pretty good at it now.  Anytime I would go out fishing he wants to go with me, but towards the end of the summer he started slowing down a bit.  So we will see what his interest level is in fishing this summer.  I am keeping my fingers crossed. The youngest will be introduced to fishing this year so we will see what happens with her.

Well, my dad and my uncle both contributed to my love of fishing, and now I'm passing that down to my younger cousin.

Yep, I got my 5 and 3 yr old boys fishing, they love it. I can only hope it lasts a lifetime. My baby girl, 1 and a half, has been out with us on the family bluegill trips. She was helping me un packmy box of goodies tonight, those sparkly worms are just so pretty lol.I got started because my dad took me and later my uncle too.

Absolutely. He even has his own kayak that I won for him last year. He has been fishing with me in my kayak since age 4. His weapon of choice is a 6'3" Crucial paired with a 2500 Sienna. He has caught bass, pickerel, crappie, bluegill, croaker, spot, speckled trout and redfish on that same setup.

I have pictures of my daughter holding her catches. She was an excellent wing shot by the age of 12, I also have pics of her swinging on a chukker..very cool u see my dog on point her swinging on the bird and the bird. Now in her 20's time fishing is almost non existent. Her youngest brother is coming on in the fishing world.

I have a 5 year old son, who I introduced to fishing when he was about 2. I love that he gets excited about going, and that he sees it as something him and Daddy can share. The time together is magical and priceless.

No kids yet. You can bet that once he/she is born, they will be playing with a Shimano baitcaster until old enough to fish. (Familiarity is the key) :hahaha-024:

I dont know if he'll like fishing yet or not, but he'll be missing me on Saturdays if he doesnt! LOL, there's no doubt he'll be exposed to it! he's 3 weeks old in this picture, no one said that i couldnt bring his baby swing out by the lake! (and yes, he wasnt too close to the shore and was far enough away that i wasnt gonna snag him while casting...no need to call CPS :eyebrows: )

I got into fishing from my grandpa a little bit, but I mostly taught myself. Its just what I love to do. My family doesn't even give a hoot about fishing other than my grandpa and I. I have tried to get my little brother to fish but was having none of it. My grandpa is mostly a saltwater fisherman.
