My Son’s First Fish

Posted by MNAngler On October - 1 - 2010

A little over a month ago, I took my 5 year-old son fishing. We stopped at a local sporting goods store, picked up some wax worms, and headed to a local lake. We fished off the pier and my son caught three little sunnies in about a half hour of fishing. He loved it.

He’s not afraid of touching them either (unlike The Hunter’s Wife and A Reel Lady). He had fun tossing them back.


At his grandparents’ two cabins, he loves to cast off the dock with a plug, so I can’t wait til he’s older to let him cast some spinnerbaits.

  4. Hey now I touch them, but only if it’s absolutely necessary! I will if I have to in order to get the hook out, or put them on a stringer, but I don’t enjoy just hanging out with them.
