Take Your Kids Freshwater Fishing Around Buzzards Bay

BUZZARDS BAY – Many an angler will tell you that they fell in love with the sport of fishing from a young age.

With a variety of habitats to explore, the area around Buzzards Bay is a perfect spot to get your kids accustomed to safe, responsible, and fun fresh water fishing.

Whether from a boat or pier, on a marsh, pond, or river, fishing the fresh waters of Southeastern Mass is sure to have you and your kids hooked.

The Buzzards Bay Coalition reminds anglers that before baiting your hook or setting your line, all fishermen in Massachusetts over the age of 15 must have a state freshwater fishing license.

If your child is completely new to fishing, its best to go over a few safety precautions with them, such as keeping little hands away from the hook and informing an adult if they’ve caught something that they need help removing.

Kids should also be comfortable with a sidearm cast, which is more controlled than an overhead cast.

Both the Buzzards Bay Coalition and MassWildlife host regular learn-to-fish events for beginners, and a list of all the best local spots is available at savebuzzardsbay.org.
