“Whatever type of fishing you do, try to come up with these different responsibilities, these different rites of passages, that you can teach your child how to do, watch them be successful at it, and then add to those things the next level.”
When it comes to creating the perfect fishing buddy, your kids can be some of your best and top recruits. You want to get their interest going at a young age, but how do you keep fishing interesting when kids have short attention spans?
The first thing you need to keep in mind when you’re out fishing with your kids is that it’s their day, and not yours. Their fishing trip should consist of the things they want to do, even if that isn’t fishing. Think of this as a learning opportunity to expand their knowledge on marine life and what the ocean has to offer. This can include going to the sandbar, looking for critters under rocks, etc.
Your main goal is for your kids to want to be out on the boat, and to have a good time. The more they continue to enjoy being on the boat, the more they may want to fish. Even if they may not want to fish later on in life, there’s nothing better than spending the day with your kids.
See you on the water,
