Two-year old Benjamin Chester catches a nice Smallmouth Bass on his first fishing outing.

Posted on August 4th, 2009

My wife and I just got a kids fishing outfit and tackle box for our 2 yr. old grandson, Benjamin Chester.  We decided take him fishing for a short time just to get him used to using it and catching fish.  So, Jessica and Dan (Benjamin’s parents), and Benjamin met us at the Welland Recreational Canal (Thorold Rd., Welland, ON), and we started Benjamin fishing by using a small red & white bobber, a small split-shot sinker, a small hook and a piece of worm.  Within a few minutes he was landing his first Sunfish.  After his first fish he ended-up catching a couple of Round Headed Gobies, a Yellow Perch, and a nice 1 1/2 lb. Smallmouth Bass.  Way to go Benjamin!
