  • I LOVE to fish. My son is 8 and I take him fishing a few times a year!! He loves it and does really well. If we don't catch anything in an hour or so we're out. This rarely happens, though. I know a lot of hot spots:)
    He doesn't do so well with ice fishing, which is fine, I'm not a fan of that either.

  • I just realized your son is 3 or 4. I've been taking my son since he was two. You just have to go on shorter trips. We have a cabin so it's easy for us to go on shorter trips. He'll have a blast. Have fun!!

  • AH, Fishing, It used to be all i ever did. Night and day, i guess you could say i was a finatic. I spend close to $400 on a G.Lumis fishing rod even though i have plenty of other fising equipment that can catch fish just fine. I even tie my own flies for Salmon fishing. My first husband and i had all of our 1st couple of dates fishing. Ice fishing is great----to pull a 40" Northern Pike through the ice is amazing. We went to Canada in the boundary waters and slept in tents to go on a fishing trip. It was awesome. In the fall and spring i would be the only female out in the river in waders fishing for Walleye, or Salmon. I have not fished in so long because my current husband doesn't know how. I would love to get back into fishing as a family. i could teach everyone a thing or two. LOL

  • My son loves it!!! Took him fishing this summer for his first real fishing trip. It helped that my SO's 2 daughters were there and his uncles two children. It was wonderful to see my son bond with my SO's daughters since they all love fishing!!!

  • Yes I love to fish with my family, it's so fun and a great thing to do together. I have been taking my son since he was 2. He does great with it. He uses his lil batman fishing pole of course we just put a bait with no hook. He is only 3 now.
