I was talking with a friend one day and we got on the subject of taking little kids fishing in the boat. I was explaining how I remembered taking Hot Wheels with me and had several in my tackle box over the years for the little guy. Now I have 2 little girls and started thinking if I was going to have to start stocking the boat with Barbie's and Little Pony's. My friend Kathy Roberts (I have to give her all of the credit for this idea) said to just take one of those little blow up swimming pools and set it in the bottom of the boat. Add a couple buckets of lake water and not only do the little ones have a place to play when they get tired of fishing, but also a place to cool off. I thought it was a great idea and it needed to be shared with everyone wanting to hit the water but might be holding off because the sitter is out of town.
Have fun and remember to take a kid fishing.
