Hey all, new to the forums. Been awhile since I've fished, used to do it a lot with my dad when I was younger. My question is, now that I'm 32 ans have a 4 year old son that wants dad to take him fishing, wheres the best spot to catch fish in this particular season? I used to go for walleye with my dad on Erie and a few times on Mosquito (mostly crappie there though) Currenty I live towards wadsworth willing to drive about an hour maybe a little more.
You can take him to the kids ponds at Portage Lakes. It used to be the fish hatchery, now it's for kids 15 and under. I guarantee he will catch fish. Just Google, Portage Lakes Youth fishing area, for directions.
It's open on the weekends from 9 am to 7pm. You don't need to take anything with you, they will provide poles and worms. You can take your own gear if you like. I saw a kid catch a huge bass there recently. He was using some type of crank bait he brought with him.
Yes the kids ponds in Portage Lakes are great. Just have your son fish a worm on the bottom and he'll be bringin in a bunch of cats with the occasional hybrid sunfish(green x bluegill). I miss fishing those ponds...
