Teaching Kids To Fish Should Be Easy

With the Baitanator you can feel safe that your child has something sturdy to hold while adding bait to the hook. The bait capsule functions seamlessly as a handle to grip as well as the storage space for the spring and extra bait. As the bait gets nibbled on at the tip of the hook, Baitanator slowly pushes more bait from the storage capsule to the tip.

Knowing that bait is constantly being redistributed to the hook greatly increases your child’s chance of catching a fish. Even better, you spend less time re-baiting the hook. Read on below for more tips and tricks we have learned over the years.

We hope these instructions help you and your child catch more fish!

Tips For Teaching Kids How to Fish

USE AN APPROPRIATELY SIZED FISHING ROD

Do not use an adult sized rod when teaching children how to fish. The larger rod makes it difficult for the child to use safely. We recommend one that is not too long for them and also nice and light so that it is easy to maneuver while casting. Shorter rods are less likely to get caught up in trees and allow your child more freedom when casting.

WE RECOMMEND A SMALL SIZED REEL

Reel size can vary a lot between adult and kid’s sized gear. Most kids can handle an adult sized reel as long as it is a simple casting release mechanism. We find that it is much better to use a child’s specific reel as the line is not exposed and the casting button is much more simple and straight forward for them to operate.

LIGHT WEIGHT FISHING LINE IS BEST

Line weight plays an important role in how easy it is for your child to cast and reel in the line. With heavy lines they tend to be stiff and less forgiving. A nice middle to light weight line will perform best and be nice and easy for them to reel in when they get a bite.

SELECT A HIGH VISIBILITY BOBBER

The fishing bobber is a very important training tool when teaching kids how to fish. Using the right bobber will help your child easily identify when the Baitanator hook is getting nibbles. Be aware though that if you select a bobber that is too small the weight of the Baitanator may give your child false strikes and can frustrate them. We recommend a bobber with a diameter of at least 1″ – 2″ and bright colors will help them spot strikes on a sunny day.

BAIT SELECTION IS VERY IMPORTANT

We recommend loading the Baitanator fishing hook with corn, power bait, mallows, moist bread balls, dough and many other commonly used baits that can stack and slide well on the hook.
