    At what age would you guys take a kid on a long rang trip?

    as long as your kid enjoys fishing, age isnt much a worry. if its long range, be sure to have him go to bed when you do if early to assure that he won't be messing around outside with any supervision. a gameboy or ipod is great to play with while getting to the grounds.
