OK, go to reflect a bit. I only met one of my grandfathers, but I was only 1 and don't remember him. He was a Merchant Marine and a Staten Island ferry boat Captain after. My other grandfather died before I was ever born, and taught my father how to fish back in Japan. One way or another, the love of boating and fishing has existed in both sides of the family and now I see my son fishing, boating, filleting fish and making sushi. So when I see future generations (tech savvy or not, but they will be) it brings a smile to my face.
I love fishing with the kids. My two boys, starting around 5, would alway go off with me on bass fishing trips. It wasn't the fishing as much as the adventure for them. When we did Florida my daughter got involved and it was great. Now my 4 year old granddaughter is involved. It doesn't't get much better.
I hope it works out.
I had hoped the same for my kids, but lake ecology changes has ruined it for them. Used to be that every spring and fall the family could go out and kill it on yellow perch for Lake Erie. For any kid it was shooting fish in a barrel. That has all changed and is no longer. Walleye dominate now, but the kids don't care for the pace of trolling. Maybe one day it will change again.
I have 2 adult daughters now that fished with me their entire lives, one is now a Federal Fishery Officer here in British Columbia and my youngest is a Veterinarian that spent 7 chilly winters in Saskatoon at University. Hopefully there will be more grandchildren in my Seafarer in a few years. They will all be awesome fishing partners.
