Subtitle The Young Angler's Guide to Catching More and Bigger Fish
Filled with helpful pictures and charts, Kids Gone Fishin’ gives young anglers the skills and knowledge to catch more and bigger fish, from identifying what fish to go after and choosing the right tackle to catch it to whether you can keep it and how to clean it when you do.
If you’re like most young anglers, you don’t care what kind of fish you catch as long as you get something. After all, while it’s fun just to be outside spending time away from home (chores) and school (tests), fishing is the most fun when you catch fish.
No matter where you live, you’ll find great fishing for some type of fish. It may be catfish or sunfish in a local farm pond, carp in a nearby river, or crappies and bass in the lake across town. Find out what types of fish you can find near you by looking at the pictures and descriptions of a range of fish types paired with a map showing where they live in North America. And look closely at the drawings of the fish so you can tell what you have landed.
By reading Kids Gone Fishin’, you’ll learn proven methods for locating, catching, and handling all sorts of freshwater fish. This book is also filled with little-known fish facts, like: Did you know that some of the fish you catch are older than you?
Get answers to all your fishing questions:
- What can I catch?
- How do I make a fish bite?
- What hook, bait, lures, and other tackle do I need?
- What does my fish weigh?
- Is it a keeper?
It won’t take you a lot of time to read this book. That’s good, because you’ll have more hours for fishing! But bring this book along on your next fishing trip, because somewhere in these pages is the one thing that will make all the difference between getting skunked and catching the biggest fish of your life. Good luck!
