Fishing and the Grandkids

By

For the Grand kids. As a full timer, it's so easy to get so wrapped up in work and not be able to smell the roses or watch your children/grandchildren grow up.

I found an article in one of the weekly throwaway Newspapers about a program called GO FISH. A program created by the Missouri Conservation District to teach children about the fun of fishing. Don't get me wrong, I've taken my grandchildren fishing before but I had gotten upset because they crossed lines, got hung up, or they just got totally bored After each class the boys are given a gift, tackle box, hooks, bobbers, sinkers, etc., and if they attend all 7 classes they are given a rod and reel at the completion. Also it qualifies them for a fishing merit badge.

They fish in a lake that the Mo Dept. Of Conservation uses only as a lake for catch and release and is full of fish. They've caught Hy-bred (sunfish), Catfish, and Bass. Jacob even caught a water snake. The volunteers said it was a first.

It has been so much fun to see them learning and enjoying their newest sport. They even ate some of the fish they caught and watched the volunteers clean the fish. If you live in Missouri and want to get your children/grandchildren involved in an upcoming series visit Mo Conservation District
