Go Fish! Take Your Children Fishing

Have you been contemplating whether or not you should go on a fishing trip with your children? After reading about the benefits your children can gain from some good ole’ fishing, you’ll find yourself booking a trip with us sooner rather than later.

Fishing isn’t just a way to pass the time; it can increase your children’s appreciation of nature, allow them to unplug from technology and learn patience.

Appreciation of nature

The more time spent in the great outdoors, the more your children will realize the beauty of our great world. Encourage them to take in every moment because it’s not often that kids these days get out in the fresh air. Grab your pole, put some sunscreen on and head outdoors.

Unplug from technology

Getting your children away from their screens once in a while will help them see that they don’t need to be playing on a computer or video games in order to have fun. If there is no technology present, you can appreciate nature and have a truly relaxing day with your family.


Going fishing teaches children to be patient and to wait quietly for the things that they want. We live in a world of instant satisfaction and “wanting it now” so fishing really tests patience, which is a great skill to have. Children also learn that not every fishing trip will be as successful as they are hoping. After all, the sport wouldn’t be any fun if we caught a fish every time we put our line in the water.

Come visit us at Burntwood Lake Lodge and experience great walleye fishing with your children. We are sure you will create memories on the water that will last a lifetime.

If you love to fish, come to Burntwood Lake any time of the year, even the dead of winter. There are a few secrets to a successful Walleye fishing trip, according a few pro-fishermen who have played cat and mouse with a few Walleye in their day. Here are some tips for fishermen, whether you’re a seasoned pro or you’re just starting out, who want to catch a Walleye.

The best thing to do to get started is to ask a local to help you choose the right gear. You’ll need a sturdy rod, about a 10-pound main line, a decent leader line and a good lure.

Walleye are known to differ in their feeding habits, but they’ve been successfully caught with jigs, live bait, weighted spinners, and even by trolling.

Walleye swim in schools, so if you caught one, you’re likely to catch another. They like to hang out in rock structures, breakline transitions and other hiding places, so you’ll have to tease them out of hiding. Many fishermen report that the best technique is to locate a walleye on your radar system, if you have one, dance the bait around, and then remain still.Secrets To Catching Walleye At Burntwood Lake

What you need to do it get the fish interested enough in the bait that they leave the depths of the water and swim a little closer to you.

Repeat this method until they’re so curious, they have to take a bite. Keep in mind, though, that Walleyes are liable to bolt if they tug on the bait and are met with resistance.

Many experienced fishermen also say that you should fish for Walleye throughout the day. Some people think it’s best to fish either in the morning or the evening, but sometimes, the best time of day to fish is when everyone else on the lake has gone off to lunch and it’s a little quieter. Most of all, remember to be patient and relax and have fun!
