Fishing kids




 Fish Radio asked Kodiak moms if they would like their kids to grow up to be fishermen. They shared these thoughts:

Grundens new Deck Boss boots. At gear shops now!

  • Yes – it’s good money.
  • Of course!
  • Not particularly – because it just seems like it’s sort of an iffy future in the fishing industry. I’m not sure what’s going to be available to them later.
  • No, because I want something more for my children than that. I want them to grow up to be something that would be even more prosperous, more educational, more beneficial to them…
  • Yes, I think it’s a great opportunity for them to grow up and it’s in our heritage. I am a Kodiak born and raised person and so I like it.
  • Well, as much as I would like to she’s not going to be able to because the rights of the fisheries have flowed into the hands of the few. So anymore it’s pretty much of a dead end, kind of a loser lifestyle unless you have millions of dollars to invest in it.
  • Yes, because it follows in the footsteps of their parents and learn from them.
  • Yes, why not!
  • It’s important to carry on the tradition.
  • If they want to, that’s fine; if they don’t that’s ok too.
  • I probably wouldn’t want them to but if they did, that would be fine.
  • Yes, because then they could bring me fish!

Would you like to be a fisherman when you grow up?

  • No, it’s dangerous.
  • It’s too dangerous and I get seasick.
