Our town hosts an annual event called KidFish to encourage parents to take their kids fishing. The town stocked the pond with 500 pounds of catfish! They provide rods, reels, and bait if kids don't have them and all kids ages 16 and under and encouraged to come out and fish for free. There are even prizes for the longest fish in different categories. Our family loves fishing and we all have our own gear so we were happy to participate in the event.
Rachel even has her own pink and purple tackle box which Stuart helped her stock with all the supplies she might need.The kids were excited to watch this mama duck and her little babies swim right in front of them.
Nicholas caught a fish rather quickly.
I think it is called a Green Sunfish.
Nicholas found a spot with some nice cover.
He changed bait but didn't catch anything but some weeds.
Rachel wasn't too concerned with catching anything. She just kicked off her shoes and relaxed.
