Fishing is a fantastic activity that gets your kids outside and interacting with the environment. With a little preparation and patience, you will have your kids catching their first fish in no time. Building memories on the water is very rewarding, and we have some ways to help make it super simple. Here are tips for successfully fishing with kids.
PLAN YOUR TRIP WITH KIDS IN MIND
Do not go for trophy sized game fish when you take kids fishing. These species take more skill and patience than children are comfortable with. You should focus on targeting the most populated and actively feeding species. Speckle Trout, sheephead, and white trout are a good place to start. They can be found just about every trip. Let us focus on giving your kid an amazing fishing experience. Our goal is to create a new angler who can enjoy the water with you for the rest of their lives. Fishing can be frustrating and feel slow going if the fish aren’t biting. It is our job to make it easier and exciting. While it may take a bit of work in the beginning, the reward is a new fishing partner. You want them to associate fishing with fun. As you keep them interested in the sport, they will advance and learn to appreciate it as they grow.
