You are setting the bar high for us grandparents - way to go! Great looking kids with great looking fish, being outside with grandpa, it doesn't get any better.

Some great times. I'm so looking forward to taking my grand daughter fishing soon. At two, we're getting close. She's associated fishing with Grandpa, and in a positive manner, so I'm very hopeful we'll be fishing soon.

preston, the older grandson, started fishing with me in the boat at 2. drifting with the rod in a rodholder let him fish by himself and he loved it. if he got bored we would drive the boat to another area and start fishing there. the boat ride would get him happy for another 30 minutes of drifting.

Some good times there.

I like the trolling idea. Solves the problem of having to teach casting when they're that young. My daughter is expecting so in a couple years I'll be looking to going fishing with a grand child.
