Taking a family trip out on the water has the potential to be a wonderful experience, or a heap of stress. However, there are a few ways to ensure that you and your children have a successful fishing adventure!

Here are a few tips to make sure your day of fishing goes swimmingly!

Keep it simple and fun!

No matter how experienced of an angler you are, your kids will throw your skillful techniques out the window. That’s why you must remember to keep the pressure of the sport off your children and be patient even when they get distracted.

Let them reel it inChild holding fish on a charter trip

Kids are known for their short attention spans, so what do you think is more exciting for them: waiting for a fish to bite, or reeling the line in to see their catch? Unanimously, it’s the latter. If the biting seems to be slow, let your children off the hook until you feel that bite!

Don’t fish the entire time

As mentioned before, shorter activities will adhere to a child’s short attention span, so break up the fishing with other activities. Play games, enjoy the breathtaking views on the water, and eat some re-energizing snacks.

Have extra help at the ready

A guided charter may be just what your family fishing trip needs. With a skilled captain and expert crew members, you’ll have extra hands to give kids the assistance they need, and you’ll still be able to make that big catch!
