Simple Father’s Day Fishing = Winning

Looking to make some memories with dad this father’s day? Seasoned outdoorsmen need no prompting to hit the lake, river, bay or ocean for some rod-bending fun.

But don’t sweat this if your skills and experience aren’t exactly pro level. Truth be told—you’re probably in the majority.

The good news: Fishing is a welcoming sport with a starting point for anyone. Here are a few ideas for making some tremendous memories.

Panfish—No sense frustrating yourself or your child of any age by trying to figure out baitcasters and complicated trolling patterns on Fathers Day. Float a nightcrawler or a cricket under a small cork and you’ll have a blast watching those floats disappear.

Bread balls are another effective option and you can go simple with the store-bought slices, or spend some bonding time making your own. Mix about 1 half cup of all-purpose flour with just enough water to turn it into a sticky mash. Over wax paper, roll the dough into a patty about 1/4-inch thick; dust both sides with loose flour and microwave for about 30 seconds. This creates a firmer dough that panfish can’t steal from your hook.

Inshore Wading—No boat, no problem—you can still enjoy some light tackle coastal fishing with a fun and somewhat adventurous angle by walking right into the saltwater environment. Cast jigs or topwaters if you’re comfortable; but corking shrimp over grass flats, near inlet edges or next to docks along the Intracoastal Waterway will deliver a mix of redfish, trout, flounder, croakers, black drum and sheepshead—depending on where you live.

Protect your feet, wade on firm bottom and know the day’s tides. You don’t want to walk out to a sand bar and then find that trough you crossed filled with 8 feet of water when you return.

Simple jigs with paddle tails or jerk baits, topwaters—toss whatever your child is comfortable with, but remember simplicity is key to a good time. Walking in the water significantly limits both your tackle access and your mobility.

That being said, a popping cork is your best bet for a versatile, effective and user-friendly presentation. Tow a bucket of live shrimp or just hang a jig under the cork and you can keep your bait above grass, rocks and submerged oysters. Tugging the cork makes a surface chugging commotion that attracts predators.

Keep a small tackle tray, pliers, compact knife and other necessaries in lightweight backpack or waist pack. And don’t forget the water and sunscreen—might be a long hike back to shore if you remember you forgot something important.

Also, watch the weather—you can’t outrun a storm as fast as boaters, and getting caught in the open can seriously mar the experience.

Surf Fishing—Novice anglers might look at that big, intimidating ocean and ask “Where do I start?”

Well, how about right at the edge?!

Seriously, a bounty of opportunity awaits right in the surf and you can reach a bunch of it from beaches, piers and jetties. The latter can be a little more complicated, but a beach offers simple walk-up (sometimes drive-up) convenience that meshes well with the picnics, sand castle building and the sunrise/sunset watching upon which the real memories are formed.

Like any fishing activity, the surf thing can be as complicated or as basic as you’d like. On the beach, an 8- to 10-foot medium-heavy spinning outfit with 50-pound braided line and three feet of 30-pound fluorocarbon leader capped with a fish finder rig or Carolina rig and 4- to 6-ounce weights will handle your stripers, bull redfish and larger black drum.

For the smaller stuff—whiting, bluefish, flounder, smaller reds and drum—a basic double dropper rig (available at most coastal bait shops) will do the job. Local bait shops can advise on appropriate baits, but clams, sand fleas and shrimp will work.

Keep the cooler packed with plenty of healthy beverages and snacks, include some Frisbee tossing and sand castle building time and make sure you have some type of shade available. If the beach you’re fishing allows vehicle traffic, park well beyond the high tide mark. Otherwise a beach umbrella, or a popup shelter like the Clam Quick Set Shelter will keep the day comfortable between bites.
