Simple Ideas to Get the Family Fishing

It’s no surprise that fishing continues to be a hugely popular family activity. A recent report by the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation and the Outdoor Foundation found that over 49 million Americans, ages 6 and up, participated in fishing last year. They fished a total of 885 million times, averaging about 18 trips each. But to make sure your child loves family fishing from the get-go, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Fishing doesn’t have to be difficult. Remember your first day of panfishing? Maybe you hooked one. Maybe you didn’t. Does it even really matter? Choose a sunny day and an easy nearby location with few obstacles. Pack a picnic, get some worms from the bait store, and watch a bobber float for a couple hours while enjoying snacks from your cooler. Young kids may not even focus fully on the fishing, but making it a fun background activity for a day away from the house can make it enjoyable for all.
