My Son's first deep sea fishing trip - Caught mostly Boccaccio with a couple reds and bank perch mixed in. Bait used was squid strips and anchovies.

Victor and the rest of the crew were outstanding--they treated him special on his first trip. Decent fishing and limits of fun!

Great to see, and it might have been even more fun for him that it was for you! There's something fascinating about pulling on something unknown from the abyss below... and now you may have hooked him! Looks like he enjoyed it.

awesome, cant wait to take my little ones how old is your son?
He is three, turning four next month. I started taking him to trout ponds last winter, when he was two years old. It was perfect for him because he got to use his Mickey Mouse fishing pole and it was much easier for him to reel in the fish. Plus, the trout pond at Mount Baldy is instant hook up, every cast. He loved the excitement of getting on an ocean boat this weekend, And surprisingly, he was patient to stand and wait for a bite.

My son's first fishing trip was at 2,we were fishing on the Snake river in Idaho.He want to fish ,so for the fun of it I took some line tied it to a long stick and low and behold he caught is fish fish on that rig. Catfish.......... Now I get to watch him kill fish on the Thunderbird............ Yes I'm a proud father for sure.
