The Easy Way To Get Kids On Tons Of Trout & Ladyfish
Want a super simple way to get your kids on fish?
Trolling is a great option to find the fish easily and get bites quickly.
It’s also a fun way to explore new areas and cover a lot of ground!
In today’s episode, we take out my 9-year-old daughter, Shauna, to get her on some fish.
A cold front had just come in and it was tough to get bait so instead, we simply trolled the flats until we found the fish.
If you’ve got kids in your life that are excited about fishing (or you wish they were!), then you don’t want to miss this video.

We ended up having a pretty awesome day trolling and after we stopped filming, a big school of trout showed up and Shauna got to show up Dad and Uncle Luke again!
The moral of the story is, do some trolling until you find the fish.
And once you find the fish, get ready to see big smiles and excitement on all of the kid’s faces.
Bonus: trolling allows hungry kiddos to grab a snack break after they’ve tired themselves out from catching tons of fish.
