Well, this Spring/summer I'm going to take my 2 yr. old daughter fishing for the first time. Here is how I'm appraoching this day. I will take her to a freshwater lake for sunnies or whatever will bite. She has a Mickey Mouse fishing rod.(I thought I'd wait off on the Van Staal, Loomis set up ) My question is who out there can share their experience on your own trip with your child and whether I should approach this in another way.
