Well my 4 year old son and my 12 year old nephew are feeling the itch to fish after a night where they caught catfish. Seeing a child's smile when he sets and brings in his first channel cat is truly an experience that I recommend to everyone. It only took about 2 dozen trips to get him to set and pull it in himself. He has come a long way and I encourage you all to take a kid along to let them experience what patience and a little luck can bring them. Their smile will stay with you for a long time. It was a great night for my son he learned how to hold a catfish so that it could not "Harpoon" him. He was right up to us every time we would catch a catfish and ask us if he could throw it back.
