Here at Kids CAN Fish, we want the parents to take their kids fishing. Parents, take your kids fishing, it's a great experience. Kids, ask your parents to take you fishing. It's awesome to reel in your first fish, and it never gets old. Just try it once. You'll like it! I know what you are thinking, "What if I don't like it?" Well, you will. Trust me. My dad took me fishing for the first time when I was 4. It was an experience I will never forget. For first time fishing though, I suggest lake or river fishing. You may not get bite after bite, but the pull of the fish is much less strong in freshwater. The best part is the satisfying feeling of eating a fish you caught yourself. It's priceless.
