Taking the girls fishing

Recommended Posts

This was our first day of summer break and I decided to take my girls (step girls actually...ages 5,6,7) out to do some fishing. We just went to a farm pond that I thought we could catch some perch and small bass from. After letting them fish for a while they got bored and I decided to try to catch a couple. Tied on a small spinner bait to try and catch a crappie or two and hooked up with a good one after about 5 min. I know catching a big bass out of a pond isn't much of an accomplishment but catching a good fish is still fun. The girls thought it was a GIANT lol.

Nice fish! for anywhere, congrats,.and, the smile on her face says it all. Such a nice thing, especially these days, to see a parent taking time to spend with the kids.. If you know what i mean,.... Kudos to you sir,... If they show any interest in the future to fish again, please allow me to offer a few tips

I have 3 daughters and I found that, if you head out to fish with them and the perch or bluegills are actively feeding the outing will be filled with you re-baiting, unhooking, and releasing so much you wont be fishing at all. This also will keep them from getting bored and they will be excited to fish anytime you mention it. Get them some polarized fishing glasses for protection, hats, and sunblock, and their experience will be enhanced ten fold,... My girls are all teens now and if I say "wanna go fishing?" they are willing and happy to help preparing, But since they are older now, and we have progressed in our outings, couple that with I now own a boat,.. If I say "wanna go smallie fishing?" I get that same elated reaction I use to get in the beginning of their angling adventures,..They cant be any more agreeable.   (just a hint)

 I've realized that kids are eager to learn, as long as they are active. If the fishing is slow they may get discouraged. but if the fish are actively biting they will be so interested they wont want to go home when the time comes

Outstanding! I have 3 little girls too, twin 4 yr olds and 7..we put on wax worms and wack the bluegills in our backyard pond for about 20 min...there new thing is holding the fish and throwing em back.  I bought them little nets to get the bluegill and when I get them in my boat they like using the big net to get bass I catch. Love seeing kids fishing and off video games/TV!

I wouldn't worry so much as to what is deemed as an accomplishment inside of fishing, spending time with family is the most important thing one can do, doing it outdoors and enjoying the time spent with one another is the greatest accomplishment there is man !! That bass was just an added bonus ?

Way to go Dad !!
