Watching kids fish at Pier's Park was definitely one of the highlights of my week. Fishing can usually make even the most energetic kids a bit calmer. Despite the fact that nobody caught anything, the kids were enthralled throughout the week. This was particularly evident on the Monday when two of the kids who had been slightly rambunctious during the earlier part of the day were able to fish for hours. Watching the kids fish showed me how exciting it truly was. Although they didn't catch anything, they would continuously convince themselves that they had a bite. Although this seemed childish at first I realized that fishing is all about tricking, whether you are tricking the fish or yourself.
