What's the youngest age you'd take a kid fishing for kings and halibut?
My son is 7 and 50lbs soaking wet, (skinny but scrappy) and I'd love to get him into some fish. He'd love it and has been asking to go since last year.
He handles his own rod and casts pretty well for 7, and loves icefishing.
Since it's our last summer here I've been thinking about taking him on a charter but am worried about his size.
Of course we'd both be in PFD's, always safety first, but is he still too small/young?
What are your opinions? And if you think he'd be gtg are there any charters that you would recommend?
I'm sure there are captains and crew that don't want kids and I wouldn't want that.
Thanks for any opinions/advice in advance.
