1. Be ready get back in the car and go home. Kids have very short attention spans. The first few times I took E fishing the fish were not biting 30min was about the max. But once he started catching fish he started wanting to stay longer.
2. Take a backpack. Seriously one time me and E were out fishing and he says "dad I need to go potty" so I said " Go ahead and go " as I just keep fishing. Then I look over just in time to see him for lack of a better term dropping a #2. Yeah you can never be to prepared.
3. Invest $2.00 in swivels the kind that have quick disconnects. It saves you time and gets the kids back fishing sooner.
4. Don't get mad dads. The line will tangled or caught you will have to change their lure 15 times, and they will fall in. Be patient and loving, remember you want them to have a good time and want to go again
