What were the tips? I take my kids out and sometimes we get fish sometimes we don't. I always feel like I'm just trying random things to find something that works. We seem to do much better surf fishing but ponds and lakes are what's around here.Took my daughter fishing at a pond a couple nights ago. This guy was quizzing me on what I was doing and kept trying to get me to let my daughter try his rig so she could catch a fish. “Thanks bud, we’re good.” After 45 minutes of watching him help little kids around the pond catch fish within 10 seconds of putting the hook in the water over and over and my daughter and I getting skunked, I came up to him and said, “alright you obviously know a lot. What am I doing wrong?” He gave me a few tips.
Tonight I took my son and daughter to the pond. The boy caught 13 fish and my daughter got 4. I was constantly helping the kids with worms and taking fish off the line and only had my pole in the water for 5 minutes.
-Thank you stranger. You took me from zero to hero. Look how excited she looks!
