    Default Kids age 3-4 fishing out of seward?????

    I have always wanted to find a little place for my kids ages around 4 to use their snoopy poles for some fish. We go out and catch halibut and silvers, but the kids cant really do any of that just yet. Is there a place close around seward that we can break out the snoopy poles and catch some herring? Or even pollack or small P cod ? Thanks

    I don't know about Seward but Hope is made for what your talking about, day trip or a whole weekend camping, it's hands down the best place I've ever seen for a kid to catch a salmon. Might have to wait your turn for a spot to open up that the kids can safely stand in on a weekend.

    Homer spit pollock fishing is probably second in my book.

    We hammered the crap out of cod trolling just out of the Seward harbor one trip but that's the only time I've fished there so I don't know if that's normal or if it could be duplicated from the bank.

    Out of Seward, give the rock just a little south east of the Thumb Cove Light a shot for small rock fish. It will show out of the water on a low tide, get right up on it and drop a small white jig with a little bit of herring stuck to the hook right off of the bottom. I take my daughter there and she drops with the smallest spinning rod I have, fun for all ages. We'll typically keep two or three of the bigger ones, gutted and scaled, then cooked whole they are pretty tasty.

    Sid nailed it. Take the kiddos down to the docks, they'll have a blast catching flounder and pollack all day long.

    Preacher Pond, Grouse Lake, south end of Trail Lake are good places close to the roads near town.

    when ever I'm on the boat and want to put the kids on some small fish I go to sunny cove on the south end of it. there are a lot of small rockfish in there.

    Might be the wrong time of year(I will have to check) but I used to catch sea run dollies at the end of Lowell point.

    Fourth of July Creek when the pinks are in is a good spot for the kids to have some fun.
