Get your kids hooked on fishing the right way

Taking the kids fishing over the holidays is a great way to spend time together, but it’s important to teach them to fish by the rules to ensure they have a positive experience.

Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol district manager Rob McDonald said family fishing can be a positive and rewarding experience provided it’s done the right way.

'We see many families enjoy Queensland waterways during school holidays,' Mr McDonald said.

'Families are often new to fishing or only fish once or twice a year and may be unfamiliar with the current rules.

'It’s important people check the rules before taking their families out to ensure their fishing experience is a positive one.'

Mr McDonald said the same fishing rules apply to children as adults.

'Individual fishing gear requirements, and size and possession limits apply to children the same way they do adults.

'Care needs to be taken, however, to ensure the child is able to manage their fishing apparatus independently or it could be counted towards the adult’s individual limit.

'Knowing how to identify and measure correctly is also very important.

'Good fish identification guides and fish measuring rulers are available to purchase from bait and tackle stores.

'They are invaluable tools to have to ensure the fish you catch is within regulations and could help you avoid landing a fine.'
