Summer, best time to take kids fishing.

Posted on August 5th, 2016

We just had a wonderful weekend enjoying playing with our grandchildren and of course fishing. We ended up going on a small creek adventure equipped with a small-mesh net, a bucket, and shoes and cloths that did not mind getting wet.

An outdoor adventure is turned into something special when you combine creek exploration discovering what creatures live below the surface, and of course catching fish!

Keep it simple! Fishing with kids does not require a long day, or lot’s of gear. It’s best to fish from shore and just use a hook, sinker, bobber and worm. Elenora Chester above shows-off the perfect size fish for a child to catch…a rockbass, while her pup Cookie looks on.

Benjamin Chester (the older brother), has had lot’s of experience fishing and this rock bass actually regurgitated a crayfish during the fight. Good lesson learned rock bass love to eat crayfish.

Isabella Chester may have caught the prettiest fish, a brightly colored Pumpkinseed (commonly referred by most people as a “sunfish”). It only takes a short time out of our busy schedules to make memories and add to a child’s passion for fishing!
