Kids Fishing In Michigan
– Youth Fishing in MI.
Taking My Son Fishing
By Ingrid P. Rhodes
I started my son (at age 7) on his first fishing expedition and
he experienced such thrill and excitement. It took almost all summer;
before Matthew finally had his first catch and boy was he hooked;
and, so was I. So much so, that this year, I've invested in a bigger
rod for his benefit. Matthew, his cousin (19 years) and his grandmother
are the fishermen. As the desginated driver, I provided food and
beverages; and while they fished, I enjoy the serenity of the outdoors.
It has probably been one of the best things I and his grandmother
could have ever introduced him too. His cousin went out on our first
trip (just for the ride) and in helping my son with the basics of
fishing, even he has become addicted to the experience.
"Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, Teach him how
to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime". Thanks for allowing
me to share this story.
Fishing and the great outdoors offers kids an alternative to many
influences they encounter in their busy lives today. A single fishing
trip could be the turning point in a young life and we encourage
you to invest the time in Michigan kids. The rewards are endless
and it takes so little effort.
Michigan offers many opportunities for kids to fish and experience
the thrill of the “tap-tap-tap”. Watch the eyes of
a youth light up no matter how big or small their catch may be.
