What I Did On My Vacation

Do kids still get this assignment? Well, give them something to write, photograph or video about.

Deep sea fishing is an amazing experience and sharing this activity with kids is especially gratifying. Fishing is about teamwork, boats and tackle, the weather, depth finders and the compass, live bait swimming in the livewell (a definite crowd-pleaser, everybody loves watching this, even full-grown adults!), dead bait in the fish box, birds and seaweed, weird sea creatures, some blood and guts (primarily at the fillet table), and the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. So give your kids the opportunity to connect with the ocean and nature. We don’t care how many times they ask “What’s that?” or “Why?”
