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.
