Some Helpful Hints Taking a Kid Fishing.

Kids Fishing.

It's not just about the catching. It doesn't matter if you are on a boat or an embankment of a river or lake.

It's about the adventure and the memories you are creating with them.

Here are some ideas to help the trip go smoothly and over all, more enjoyable for them as well as yourself:

  1. Comfort - Take a lot of potty breaks and snack breaks. Make sure they are warm and dry by bringing jackets, hoodies, umbrellas small blanket, hats, and sunscreen.
  2. Equipment - Make sure you bring a lower chair that they can sit in easily. Also include a smaller fishing pole that they can hold onto better.
  3. Play Break - Take a break and let them play at a local, near-by playground or simply let them explore the edge of the water and sand.
  4. Bring a Friend - Allow them to bring a friend to share in the experience. Who knows? You maybe helping to encourage the next generation of great fisherman.
  5. Photos - Don't forget to take lots of photos of your fishing trip. You can make a collage of photos for a scrapbook or the refrigerator door. Frame your child's favorite one for their room.
  6. Fish Book - Head to the library and bring a book of all the different species of fish in the area you are fishing at. If you catch a fish, be sure to look it up in the book and learn about it.
  7. Food Chain - Use this time to talk about science and the food chain. Talk about the different types and sizes of fish and how that plays into the food chain. Every living thing eats.
  8. Squeamish - If the child is a little unsure about using live bait, then use rubber worms, soft plastic lures or other lures. If they are unhappy about touching the fish then try bringing a glove to use.
  9. Stories - Tell stories of when you were little & fishing for the first time. Make jokes & laugh about the mishaps of the day. You could even make up a fishing story together. The crazier the better!
  10. Catch and Release - Show them that by letting the little ones go, we are letting them grow up and get bigger. Talk about the laws and the size of the fish that you can keep. If you do clean the fish for dinner, talk about how it is feeding the family and how God made fish for food as well.

You will want to make sure the first few trips are as enjoyable as possible, paving the way for future trips and grand adventures!

Remember, it's not about fishing. It's is about the time spent together enjoying each other in the great outdoors!

Don't wait so long next time! Plan your next trip now! What are you waiting for?

Fishing for a lifetime

Posted on May 28, 2017 at 3:30 PM Comments comments (0)

A light breeze off the surface of the water and a slight splash can be all it takes to get you wondering what lies below the surface, while letting your mind wander.

Casually casting out a line on a warm summer day and making a ripple effect in the water, can sooth the soul deep within.

But beware, feeling that tug and the curiosity of what is on the other end of the line, can be very addicting.

Fishing can teach you patience and enhance your problem solving skills, but it can also steal all your money and spare time! Although time spent fishing is never wasted.

Many solid lifelong friendships can be made while fishing. The retelling of fishing stories of the ones that got away and the mishaps that came with it while having a witness that can vouch for it all.....is simply priceless. {Embellishments are optional}

After a long hard fought day of catch and release and/or keeping some for dinner, can have you sleeping like a baby at nightfall.

There is nothing like a nice full day in or near the water, to help you reconnect with God's creation to recharge you batteries.

Some folks are lucky enough to fish for a living, but for the rest of us "regular folks", we will be happy and content to get out there every chance we can get.

Passing along the fishing tradition to our children and to others, is what it's all about. Keeping our heritage alive for many generations to come, to enjoy, as all of our family members have before us.

Fishing is meant to be enjoyed for a lifetime.

A Huntress Husband

Posted on May 22, 2017 at 1:20 PM Comments comments (0)

A huntress husband is patient.

He understands that she can't always answer her cell phone while she is hunting. And that if he needs to contact her ASAP he should probably try texting her (or maybe even a smoke signal would work better). However, he also knows that if his wife calls him, while she is hunting, he better answer the phone. She isn't calling to ask him to pick up some milk from the store.

He sometimes offers up his favorite hunting spot, just so that she has a good place to hunt. Although, just because it is his favorite hunting spot, doesn't mean it is her favorite hunting spot.

He knows that if a hunting item has pink, purple or baby blue on it, he probably shouldn't touch it, so that it will be there for her when she needs to use it.

He makes suggestions, opinions and sometimes gentle reminders about hunting situations and is never critical or pushy.

He takes turns staying home with the children when a babysitter isn't available so that she can go hunting as well, understanding it's a partnership and not a dictatorship.

When he sees a sale on hunting supplies or ammo he calls his wife and asks if she needs anything?

He knows that he will probably have to help her physically with the large heavy animals when she harvests them, and he is ok with that.

He understands that Girls Deer Hunting Camp is only for women and how important that is for her to have other female hunting friends.

He can take a back seat when it comes to the retelling of hunting stories in social gatherings.

He knows that something camouflage better be under the Christmas tree with her name on it on Christmas morning, waiting for her to unwrap it.

He is proud that his wife can help bring home the dinner from nature's store.

He gets a little nervous when she takes the credit card to the sporting goods store, but is secretly hoping she brings him home something as well.

He is genuinely happy and proud when his wife is successful hunting. He offers to help out with the processing, take pictures and even brags to his friends and family about her success.

He honors and respects his wife's hunting decisions and opinions, even if it is different from his own.

He is generally more attractive, cool and over-all, an exceptional human being.

He will pray for safety over his wife during and after the hunt.

He should be thanked and appreciated for all he does to help his huntress be a success in the woods and field.
