First Fish

This is a great time of year to turn a youngster on to fishing. The cold weather has given way to spring and kids are eager to spend as many hours outdoors as possible. For those kids who have yet to catch their first fish, now is the perfect time to get them to a pond.

Diego Moore recently joined his dad and me to get a cure for his fishing itch. With a cup of nightcrawlers and a pair of Zebco 202 combos, the adults baited hooks and cast out lines, handing the reeling duties off to Diego, who caught 10 bream in about 15 minutes. His reactions ranged from crying to giggling. And every time I see him now, he wants to know "when do we go fishy again?"

Soon Diego. Soon....
