Honest question: Does your family even talk to each other anymore? Are your family bonding attempts reduced to a series of acknowledgement grunts? Are you sick of trying to gain eye contact while they're staring at their phone screen? This is where a good fishing experience can help.
Once your child (or teen, or younger cousin, or whatever) is hooked into a large bass or catfish, they'll have no choice but to put the smart phone down and focus on the task on hand.
Spending time in the great outdoors is a great way for the whole family to take a break from the hectic schedule of their daily lives and focus on each other for a while. It's a chance to hang out and get to know one another again.
A good family fishing trip doesn't just get the whole family away from the stresses of everyday life. It also helps you make some memories that will last a lifetime. How can any nay-sayer deny that?
