Fishing with the Kids at Corona Lake

Today, my buddy and I took a bunch of energetic and excited kids fishing at Corona Lake.  There were two adults, three 8-year-olds, a 5-year-old, and a toddler who is almost 3-years-old.  For those of you who have kids but no fishing equipment, no fishing boat, and no fishing experience, this is a great place to try everything out pretty simply.  I did NOT like the fact that we had to pay $15 per person just to enter the place, plus $10 per car. But everything else was pretty reasonably priced.  We rented fishing poles at $6 each and a large motor boat with a canopy for $50 that we could keep for four hours.

The staff stock the lake with all kinds of fish once or twice a week, and it’s supposed to be so full that it would be hard not to catch at least one fish.  But we didn’t hit the water until noon, so that’s probably why we didn’t catch one single fish.

But all that being said, we all had a really good time.  I can see why people go fishing.  It forces you to be patient and relax and enjoy the nature all around you.  I could easily see myself going out on a lake somewhere early one morning with good music, good food, and good drinks, and just “fish” all day.

Here some pics from the lake.

Soulquarian Quote of the Day

"There is no hip hop manual for growing old...The 22-year-old college grad who used to love the Roots in 1994 never left. He’s just 40 now and has a wife and kids and doesn’t feel like spending all night at a club."
