    My wife has talked me into taking my 2 and 1/2 year old son to the lake and introduce him to bluegill fishing.

    Now I know he is to young and dont know a fishing pole from a teddy bear, but we are going.

    Please pray for me:big_smile:

    How cool is that? You get to take your son fishing, AND you come away with some bait. :) It's a win-win situation.

    If it were a perfect world, while you were with your son, your wife would go out and net some Skips for ya.:big_smile:

    He done Ok, I know he is to young to actually fish, I just want to get him used to being outside and take it slow.

    But by next year he better be netting me shad, or I will not be buying him a toy everytime we go to Walmart!:smile2:

    My dad taught me a little about hunting when I was grwing up, but he never took me fishing.

    But by the age of 7-8 I knew I wanted to fish!:big_smile:

    If it turns out he dont like to fish thats fine, I just want to give him that chance to decide.

    But it sure would be nice when I am about 60 to have someone to pack my gear down to the River!:wink:

    I told my wife that he had fun today, so she informed that tomorrow I need to go buy him his own fishing pole, should I get a sponge bob spincast out fit, or maybe a spiderman???

    I started Shelby around that age too. Her first rod was a whinnie the pooh tigger pole. It even floats. Shes had about 4 or 5 different rods now. Ever time Dad gets a new one she wants one too. I got her a tackle box last year and now all my lures have been coming up missing. LOL! Shes a great little fishing partner though, she really enjoys the time on the water and she loves to catch big fish! Ive taught her about catch and release and she understands why we do it.
