Every year I am asked the same question from parents: “How do I get my children interested in fishing?”
The answer is simple.
Take your child fishing for the first time on a small body of water that will produce high numbers of fish.
When kids are young, they need a lot of activity – rather than a trophy fish to put on the wall. Catching pan fish is a great way to start a young angler fishing. The simple presentation with a worm and a bobber works the best and allows the child to focus on the bobber while creating excitement when it drops below the surface of the water.
