My son is growing up loving the out doors, as long as he is outside he is content. I give a BIG thanks to my husband for it! If you been around my site and read a few of my family post you know a thing or two about our family. We are big on fishing Salt water and Fresh water, coast, ponds, lakes and rivers. I know not everyone has access to a beach or any body of water but that shouldn’t stop you. Get out and go for an adventure take your family and explore! I am sharing with you today everything you need to know about fishing with toddler. It is that simple!
Everything you need know about fishing with toddler
I love the chance to relax by the lake or ocean, and watch my husband show our son how to fish. They have such a strong bond and creating memories. My husband owns a kayak, my son is obsessed with fishing and his daddies kayak. He talks about his daddies kayak and catching fish more than any 2-year-old I know.
Gear: clothing and shoes
When kids are outside it’s important they have the proper clothes and gear for more enjoyable experience. Weather appropriate is always a must for these kinds of hobbies. Extra x100 pair of clothes. My son is no longer wearing diapers we are in the potty training stage so if that’s you too extra clothes is a must. Water shoes incase your little one gets in the water. Rain boots if you don’t want your little one in the water.
Potty training or diapers
Take extra pairs of undies and clothing incase accidents happen. Nothing bad with accidents it is all nature, just hide them behind a tree and change them! I always take a grocery bag with us or any disposable bag to put his wet clothes in, then go about our fishing!
Snacks and drinks
We usually eat before or after our fishing. When we eat before and just take dry snacks same as if we eat after we are done fishing. Be sure to take plenty of water. Kids may not like to fish and would like to be running around exploring!
last but not least
Be sure you have their fishing poles and tackle box. Incase their lure fles out from the line as they are casting it out, you’ll have more tackle to put on their pole.
