Taking an 11 yr old to the bay on Saturday...help!!!
For a few months now, I've been promising my buddies son Tyler, that I'd take him fishing. He says that he wants to catch some "saltwater" fish-lol.
I usually fish from Oak Island to a few of the reefs in EGB (Whitehead, Deep reef, and down to Hannah's). Tyler is really athletic and can cast very well with spinning gear but not sure exactly what would be the best approach when fishing with an 11 Yr old.
I really don't want to drive all the way to OI or Smith Point, and considering putting in at the Galveston Yacht Basin which would be a new experience for me. I really want his first "saltwater" experience to be a good one. My plans were to fish Pelican Island, run across to either Sievers or Stingeree and out into the bay to do some drifting using shrimp under a popping cork.
Any suggestions by some of you guys that have younger fishing partners would be greatly appreciated.
