We live right by a river with lots of fishermen and my five year old decided that he wanted to start fishing. He bugged me enough that I bought him and my daughter rod and reels and we have gone a few times and caught a few fish.
I used to fish quite often when I was young, but the last time I went was probably thrity years ago. I am enjoying everything about the experience except for the fishing part. I am not so keen on impaling the worms and unhooking the fish (especially ones the have swallowed the hook).
Anybody here use articificial bait that works. We are just trying to get little fish for the kids to have fun.
