Fishing with the young bloke and his first boat

My young bloke Ollie, turning 4 later this year. Loves fishing like his old man. We're lucky enough to have Cockburn sound as our local, protected from swell and when its a cranking sou wester we can launch down Rocko end in almost millpond conditions. Mostly troll small plastics for the hezzas, he winds them in and puts them in the bucket, we'll take a couple back to the ramp with us so he can show and tell whoever will listen before chucking them back in. Have found a few sambo nursery spots this year, been great watching him get bent over by them too.

We often head down to Peron where there seems to be an abundance of tarwine between the reefs. They go really hard actually!

For our Covid Iso project earlier in the year, we picked up a small tinny for $75. Ollie named it Floaty and is on it just about every day.

 Congrats on getting him excited about the fishing . Certainly a great way to spend quality time with your son. Good to see you getting him onto the fish and teaching him the right way about releasing the fish your not going to eat

And that tinny looks almost as good as the one in the kids playground at Kings Road Brewery......great way to feed the kids imagination .....add a magnet to the rod and some metal fish and it will keep them amused for ages
