Take Your Kids Ice Fishing This Winter

Looking for another way to get your kids outdoors this winter? Bundle them up and head out to a frozen lake for a day of ice fishing. This is the second year I’ve taken my toddler-age son hardwater fishing and each time we go, we’re able to stay out a little bit longer than before. Like any outdoor activity you introduce to your child, preparation is key along with setting realistic expectations. Here are four ways to make sure your kids have an enjoyable time while ice fishing.

Pan-Fried Bluegill Recipe

Crispy on the outside, tender, flaky fish on the inside, this simple pan-fried bluegill recipe is reminiscent of old-fashioned flavor and perfect for stove or campfire for your fresh catch. We love to take the girls fishing. It’s so fun to sit back, toss in a line, and watch their faces light up when their bobber starts dunking into the water. So, we took them the other day to a local spot full of delicious bluegill. We all 5 caught a mess of them.  We brought them home, and then cleaned and fried them for dinner. So yummy.
