I will be up this weekend with my grandkids(ages 4-7-8). Would downrigging be the way to go? They can handle spinning equipment, so they shouldn't have a problem with bait casters.

Tillie, I fished yesterday with fair results plus it was actually nice out with little wind. I tried bait fising for a while but got no bites. There are scattered groups of fish from 22 feet and deeper that are willing to bite so your thoughts about downrigging are probably on the money. But like Curt said, careful with those treble hooks with three kids "helping".<P>Good luck

Yesterday we had the best day of fishing we have had on LOW this summer. We did better downrigging, but we also caught fish in 28-31 fow in the rocks, (not so easy for kids). I used my spinning reel yesterday downrigging for a change and it worked very well, that may be easier for the kids. We downrigged about 5-7 miles NNE of Long Point. Have a safe fun time.
