Taking Kids Fishing
Jerry Payne, a West Virginia Division of Natural Resources law enforcement officer, say keep it simple. "If you're just starting out with a young kid, the best way to start is with a float or bobber so they can see the action instead of a lure or plastic worm. If they see the bobber go down, they get excited about that whether they catch it or not, the kids get excited just about being there."
Christin and Sidney are both ten, so is Mara McGrew...her day Bruce. I've known him for a couple of years and he is great with kids, so you'd expect him to love getting out on the water with his own children.
"It's good quality family time, being in the outdoors, just seeing what God provides you with, wildlife habitat, and spend time with your children. It's a good combination." say Bruce McGrew.
Mara and her older brother Braeden agree...it doesn't get better than hitting a pond and dropping a line.
"It's really special, it's fun to have time with him. Sometimes we'll compete and sometimes we'll combine and see how many we can get like me and my sister do." says Braeden McGrew.
"Getting out here fishing is really fun with my family. Our friend has a little pond by his house and sometimes we go there to fish." says Mara McGrew.
Brothers and sisters younger than the McGrews also can have fun getting out their poles. Sam Warner was busy catching fish all day, so was his little sister Ashton...they were too busy having fun to stop and talk. But as you can see...all these kids had fun...and so did we. With a little planning and effort, you can too.
