Summer vacation can be bittersweet. Do you often have to push the kids off their technology or off the couch? Have you introduced your kids to fishing? My kids have been fishing since they were young and the smiles on their faces when they catch something can not be replicated by any video game. No matter if you have a small pond or access to an ocean, fishing is something the whole family can enjoy over the summer and create amazing memories.
While we were visiting our cousins we decided to take them on a fishing trip to one of their local lakes. We picked up a few Shakespeare Catch More Fish Combos, packed up the car and dogs and decided to test our luck. Shakespeare Catch More Fish Combos come pre-spooled with Stren fishing line and includes a fishing kit equipped with hooks and bait. These kits make great gifts for beginner fisherman.
The bonding started as my 12 year old, the most proficient fisherman in the group was tasked with getting everyone to put their rods together.
I love that Stren fishing line is made in the USA and the kids received a variety of bait to test out. Unfortunately we were not successful on this trip but there was a lot of cousin bonding.
Even though the kids started in a group when we started, the kids seemed to double up together and sit and talk as they fished. There were no phones, no tv and no fighting on this trip. Sure their attention span can be daunting if there is no luck, the kids enjoyed being outside and together.
There are a variety of different types of fishing combo; you may choose any you see fit for you and your family’s level of expertise. Below are some links to the most popular combos:
- Catch More Fish Youth Combo
- Catch More Fish Lake/Pond
- Catch More Fish Ladyfish
**Each combo will include a fishing kit equipped with what is needed on your fishing checklist depending on the situation. Be sure to research ponds and lakes in your area before heading out. Many websites will give you hints as to what fish are available as well as what the best fishing times are. You may also need to get fishing permits.
I am so glad my kids were able to enjoy a fun afternoon fishing with their cousins, as these are the summer memories they will cherish in years to come. Hope we will catch a big one before we head out of town.
