>> WHO WANTS TO GO FISHING?

>> ME!

>> YEAH? WELL LET'S GO!

>> FISHING WITH KIDS IS

GREAT WAY TO SPEND TIME

TOGETHER IN THE OUTDOORS.

HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO ENSURE

BOTH YOU AND YOUR KIDS

HAVE A GOOD TIME.

>> OKAY, WHAT ARE

WE SUPPOSED TO SAY?

LOOK OUT THERE

AND TALK TO THEM.

>> HERE FISHY, FISHY, FISHY!

(music)

>> TEXAS PARKS & WILDLIFE

OFFERS LOTS OF FAMILY-FRIENDLY

FISHING OPPORTUNITIES.

>> WELCOME GANG, WELCOME!

HOW ARE YOU DOING TODAY?

>> A GREAT PLACE TO BEGIN

IS AT A STATE PARK.

YOU DON'T NEED A FISHING

LICENSE TO FISH WITHIN THE

BOUNDARIES OF A STATE PARK

AND MANY PARKS OFFER FREE

FISHING CLASSES FOR

CHILDREN AND ADULTS.

TEXAS PARKS & WILDLIFE ALSO

STOCKS URBAN-AREA PONDS

AND LAKES AS PART OF OUR

NEIGHBORHOOD FISHIN' PROGRAM.

EVEN IF YOU LIVE IN THE CITY,

CHANCES ARE THERE'S A GREAT

FISHING SPOT NEARBY.

CHECK THE TEXAS PARKS

AND WILDLIFE WEBSITE FOR

FREE CHILDREN'S FISHING

EVENTS IN YOUR AREA.

YOU MIGHT PLAN ON SPENDING

AN HOUR ACTUALLY FISHING

THE FIRST TIME.

MOST KIDS HAVE SHORT

ATTENTION SPANS.

IF THEY GET TIRED OF FISHING,

TAKE A BREAK AND EXPLORE YOUR

SURROUNDINGS OR GO FOR A SWIM.

KEEP THE EQUIPMENT SIMPLE.

>> THERE YOU GO.

>> CHILDREN CAN EASILY HANDLE

A CANE POLE OR SPINCASTING

COMBO AND THE LIKELIHOOD OF

CATCHING A SMALL SUNFISH

OR EVEN A BASS IS JUST AS

HIGH AS WITH MORE COMPLEX

EQUIPMENT AND A WHOLE

LOT LESS FRUSTRATING.

>> THERE YOU GO YOUNG MAN.

STICK YOUR THUMB IN THERE

AND HOLD THAT FISH UP!

>> IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO

USE BARBLESS HOOKS.

HERE YOU CAN SEE HOW MUCH

EASIER THEY ARE TO WORK WITH

THAN A BARBED HOOK AND THEY

MINIMIZE THE POSSIBILITY OF AN

INJURY TO YOU AND YOUR CHILD.

>> HOLD THE HOOK.

HERE'S YOUR BAIT.

>> MANY KIDS ARE UNEASY

WITH LIVE BAIT.

BAIT THEIR HOOKS FOR THEM

OR TRY ALTERNATIVES LIKE

HOT DOGS, KERNEL CORN

OR CHEESE.

>> WHAT DO I DO NOW?

>> A LIVE FISH CAN BE

FRIGHTENING TO SOME CHILDREN.

>> NO!

>> TEACH CHILDREN RESPECT FOR

THE FISH, HOW TO HANDLE

AND RELEASE IT SAFELY.

>> SEE, HE'S SWIMMING AWAY!

>> LET YOUR CHILD BUILD A

SERIES OF SMALL SUCCESSES.

>> WHAT'S THAT?

>> A BOBBER.

>> THEY'LL GAIN CONFIDENCE AS

THEY LEARN HOW TO ATTACH A

BOBBER, HOW TO CAST

AND IDENTIFY TYPES OF FISH.

>> EXCELLENT!

>> BRING ALONG PLENTY OF

DRINKS AND SNACKS TO KEEP

KIDS FROM GETTING CRANKY.

AND DON'T FORGET SUN PROTECTION

AND A SMALL FIRST AID KIT.

>> THERE YOU GO.

>> REMEMBER, THE NUMBER ONE

GOAL IS TO HAVE FUN.

EVEN IF YOUR KIDS DON'T

CATCH FISH, THEY'LL HAVE

HAPPY MEMORIES OF

SPENDING TIME TOGETHER.

>> COME ON, D'OH!

D'OH!

D'OH!

D'OH!

HE'S A BIG ONE!

D'OH!

COME ON!

GRANDPA!

D'OH!

D'OH!

COME ON!

I CAUGHT A FISH!

CAN I THROW HIM BACK IN?
