    It's funny, my father "taught" me how to fish.

    His idea of fishing was getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. He cast a line out, cracked open a Coors 12-pack, sat back and waited for the fish to come to him. He fished streams like this too. Him and my uncle fished the Kern River for years before ever catching a fish.

    Well, I got tired of not catching fish. So I studied Field & Stream, Outdoor Life and joined the Boy Scouts. There was this little company known as Bass Pro Shops, they were kind enough to send their catalog out.

    By the time I hit middle school the tables had turned and I taught POPS how to fish.Kern River fishing was never the same for him; so many damned fish it got boring. Same as Lake Perris, all day long, nothing but Largemouths after having rarely catching anything there except for the stocked Trout.

    But now I'm middle-aged and understand his style too.

    Mouzer, don't succumb to pussified fishing at a pond the size of a swimming pool. Keep at it, research it out like you're doing and teach your son the right way to fish. It will stay with him the rest of his life and when he's your age, he'll do the same with his son.

    You better watch it van driver or Kilrtoy will come in and tell you how much you don't know about where to fish...

    My grand daughters age 2 and 4 went and looked like experts.
    It's cool once in a while to let them get the easy one to keep them excited about fishing if there is a dry spell.

    That's right. I really would like to fish alone so I can just go where I want and kill a bunch of fish but I can never bring myself to not take my dad or my kids. I've got a 3 year old and a 6 year old and have had them both out fishing. Have had the older one out shooting since he just turned 5. Start them young and teach them to be men.

    Before I sold my fishing boat, I went to almost all of the Southern CA local lakes. In almost any conditions getting a limit of bass was almost a given. Was it shooting fish in a barrel? Heck NO!

    Time on the water is what it takes, there is no substitute.

    But you don't want the young ones to lose interest and not ever get the feel of catching their first fish. That's why I recommend a place like Mt Baldy Pools. Even if you don't fish, just go and buy some fish food and let the kids feed them. Heck I even had fun doing that but even more fun watching the kids do it.

    How many people do you know that have NEVER caught a fish?

    If you are waiting anyway then wait until Friday and go to the Santa Ana River as mentioned above. Will cost a little in gas but you'll save that by not paying 20 bucks a person to go stand elbow to elbow at some mud pond off the side of the freeway.

    It's a no brainer catching fish here plus you can do a little boating at the same time.

    My wife.....The woman could backlash a baitcast Zebco.

    Actually a couple years ago her and my granddaughter actually fought over a fish their "first fish". I put cutbait out on a boat rod and my grand daughter was in charge. She of course got bored and set the rod down. A small blacktip shark, about 3-4', took the bait, I reached down and set the hook firm and handed the rod to my wife. It was a hoot watching the two of them getting it to the boat and then trying to get it in a net, which I finally secured for 'em.

    The rest of the day all they did was argue over who actually caught the thing.....It was hilarius. My grandson and I were stringing trout and redfish but they of course had the "real" fish of the day and were bragging to everyone we saw the rest of the day.
