Fishin' Fool

Girls can fish too!!

Recommended Posts

My little one shares the same passion for bass fishing as I do.  For a 6 year old she displays a lot of patience.  In fact, there's times when we're not catching that she has more patience than me.  Last weekend was special.  After reeling in a few fish for dad she really was complaining about not catching one on her own.  Then it happened, she said "Dad I got one".  I gave her my usual response, "I'm sure it probably just weeds Ava" and then she said the magic words as she had listened to me before.  "No dad I can feel it swimming".  She was sure right and got to catch one all by herself displayed in the excitement of the top photo.  For those of you dads with girls who are hesitant to take them fishing, girls can fish too :)

 

**Edit- One more special part of the story she didn't catch that fish on a Barbie pole or even a Zebco push button reel.  She caught it on a Stradic spinning reel and a 7'1" spinning rod that I had taught her how to cast that morning.

I had to teach myself bass fishing because all me and my father did was catch sunnies. The only lure he uses for bass are rooster tails. I'm glad you and your daughter had fun!

Girls absolutely can like to fish.  It's amazing that dad's would exclude them.  My daughter likes fish more than my son.  She is also 6 and hopefully will land her own any day now.
