5 Tips for Fishing with Kids

1. Start with equipment that fits the child’s size
A fishing rod should be no bigger than six inches longer than a child’s height. Push-button reels are entry-level models and perfect for kids.
2. Go to a small pond instead of using a boat
That way the kids can run around if they get bored.
3. Coach as much as possible, but physically help them as little as possible
They need to do it on their own because the excitement is in the struggle. Fighting a fish of any size turns into a huge event for kids.
4. Even if it’s hot, pack a pair of pants and a sweatshirt or long-sleeve shirt
It’s cooler by the water, and if the bugs start biting, kids can cover up.
5. Start kids with live bait instead of lures
Worms are perfect. They catch fish well and are fun to play with. After they get the hang of it and are ready for lures, use lures with exposed hooks like crank baits and spinner baits. They’re easier to use, and they catch numbers.
