Where to go with a 5 year old?

9 posts in this topic

I will be fishing the hutch area with a buddy and his 5 year old. Just looking for a little sunfish action and maybe catch a pike or two on a tip-up. Anyone have any good lakes to try. Thanks in advance.

I agree that Stahls would be a good "action" lake.

Ended up going to Marion. Few perch and a crappie. Ryan was right. Cole fished for all of about three minutes and then wanted to play his new gameboy.

Gameboys are lifesavers. I don't think they should get 8 hours of useless knowledge per day, but boy when the fishing is slow and the kids get antsy, couldn't ask for a better product. I might have played it once or twice... cool.gif

How were the ice conditions out there? Belle is starting to slowly break in places. Ice is still hard though..and fishing is starting to get that way too....

Ice seemed really good surprisingly. Around 7.5 inches. Wish it would get cold though.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
