Part of the fun of a lake vacation is spending time with my kids, teaching them how to fish and watching them in action. On Keuka Lake they caught smallmouth, bream, perch, catfish, rock bass, and got very close to catching a pike.
This year my oldest stopped using worms and learned how to use lures. One evening she caught more fish than the rest of us using a red spoon.
My youngest is still intrigued with the sport, but loses interest quickly if she does not catch a fish after 5 minutes. She can be deadly with her Disney princess rod, but doesn’t like to get her feet wet.
Neither is ready for a fly rod, but they’re getting close!
Here are a few photos. Enjoy!
