Best bet to keep a kid interested

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what your thoughts on the best DAYTIME spot that will keep a kid interested are? Any type of fish/any size - just action.

Hey Jake,

I took my four year old out to Lake Washington and fished in 7-8' of water past the crowd by the north access towards third point and caught many many sunfish. You have to weed through them but there was plenty of action. I had expected that an hour or so would be all he could handle but after three hours of baiting and unhooking and releasing sunfish it was dad who was ready to go and not my son! Now he asks me every day when we are going again. Good luck!

Bob

I dont know where you are located at, but lake sleepy eye would be a good bet for lots of sunnies, they are small, but there there. punch a hole almost anywhere in the lake and you should find fish.

Just in case they arnt biting when you get there. You might want to bring some crayons and coloring books. This has helped me in the past until the bite started.

laugh.gif Yep, I took my 8 year old son there fishing this past

summer. We went out on the public dock and pulled in one

after another until he got bored and decided the playground

looked like more fun. wink.gif What I have decided to do now

since buying my new 2 man Nordic Deluxe portable is that I

would take along my portable 7 inch lcd DVD player for him

to watch a movie if he gets bored. Plus I thought about

taking a sled along so he could go mess around and burn off

some energy.

Can`t wait for my new gas auger to get here I ordered from Cabelas.

We`ll be heading out as soon as it arrives, maybe

running down to clear lake first.

Took my 5 yr old son just out from the North access on Washington this afternoon for just under 2 hours. We set up pretty much in the middle of the first group of houses out there between 3rd point and the access - mostly portables. We only reeled up 8 sunfish, 5 of which he caught. Using my Aqua-Vu I didn't see a lot of fish, but there were sunfish passing through pretty often not looking to bite.

Sounds like he wants to go out again tomorrow so we'll try a little different spot and see if we can find some more active fish.
