So this was from the beginning of the season but I was out fishing with the family and I reeled in my first fish of the season and my son helped me reel it in. Here's the vid:

A good call for sure. We always have a rope on Owen's rod and it's saved it multiple times. But he always wants to use my rod lol. I've been thinking about attaching floats to pliers and what not. One solution that has worked well is providing him with a bucket of rocks and sticks that he is free to toss into the lake.

Classic 👏
Kids can get bored quick while fishing...if they're not catching something regularly. We've always started all our kids and grandkids off on panfish, perch, bass etc...off a dock works great. Just keep them busy reeling fish in, one after another. Helps to if they can actually see the fish biting the bait as they're fishing. Keeps them entertained and engaged longer. But other distractions in the boat helps, when the bites slow. The pail of rocks to throw in the lake is a great idea. Also impressed you're teaching him to cast already...I'm finishing that process with my 5 year old grandson...he's just learning how to cast and clear open faced baitcasters without help...only a fly rod left to learn now.
Fun vid Koke...you'll have a fishing buddy for life.

Yeah, I need to take him to a nice dock with some pan fish. He loves being on boats and is able to independently play when he isn't using his fishing rod. I have yet to give him a lure with hooks on it. I have a few dollar store lures with the hooks removed that I put on his line. He is quite happy with that. Even still when he starts winging that lure around it takes me a moment to remember that I took the hooks off because I usually end up cowering away at first especially when he starts swinging it around like a flail. I've been hit with enough lures in my fishing career to get a little uncomfortable when someone is casting near me.

He's got the motion down and I don't think he's too far off from figuring out the final steps in the casting process. It's interesting trying to teach him. I find myself trying my best to break down the action that has become so fluid for me into sub actions.

I think he's already pretty hooked on fishing. Just need to get him into some pan fish like you said. Thanks for the good words, Grunmpa.

Yeah, Kenster, it definitely gets a little quiet here in the summer. I am already contemplating the coming ice reports, lol.
