Okay, so if all goes well I am taking out both girls tomorrow night. This will be the first time the 8 yr old will be out. I'll probably take them to a Laguna on our Peninsula. I am sure there are plenty of Bluegill and what not for them to catch. I'd really like them to catch a few so they have fun with it. of course, I'll be trying to catch Mr. Whiskers, which I know are there. Actually, that's the first time place I ever caught a fish, and it was a catfish. Really one of the ONLY memories I have of my father, but that is another story. So, anyway, my question is, what is best for me to get the girls for bait? Just some regular old worms on a plain old hook? Speaking of, the first time we went out I was losing worms like crazy. Any one got a pic or diagram or something of the "right" way to do it? And, is one type of worm better than another.? One last question, do I go with a smaller hook since the fish are only like a couple of inches long? I have been out 4 times now and have only gotten the one little guy in my pic, and would really like to get a few more so the kids get interested in it. Thanks for any advice.
