Picture Roundup: On the Water with Kids

Taking your kids out on the boat can teach them so much: lessons on the environment, food sustainability and plain ol' how to enjoy the outdoors.

In preparation for spring, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite pictures of our kids on the boat — and we want to see yours! We’ve taken a fishing angle here, but we’d also love to see families powerboating, sailing, participating in watersports or just cruising around.

You can post your pictures to our Facebook page, and we’ll choose the best to feature in a blog post next month.

black drum fish

Not one of these kids weighs as much as the 90-pound black drum they caught while fishing on the Chesapeake Bay.

striped bass fishing

David, Travis, and Max are best buds at school, on the lacrosse field, and most of all — on the boat!

fathers day fishing

Lil' Jack and big Jeff spent Father's Day the right way, fishing on their Judge 27.

offshore fishing for mahi

That's Justin Densberger, with his first-ever mahi-mahi. Later that day he got seasick, soaked in a downpour, shivered in a 15-knot breeze, and then said it was one of the best days of his life.

striped bass fishing

Nothing breaks that winter cabin fever like a day of spring striper fishing.

chesapeake bay fishing

WOOOO HOOOO! Now THAT is what we call a bunch of lucky kids!

fishing for golden tilefish

Those golden tilefish were reeled up from 600 feet below, and when these kids get home they'll have fishing tales to last a lifetime.

crappie fishing

Nothing beats a quiet day at St. Mary's Lake for some quality daddy-daughter time with Mollie.

How does your family enjoy time on the water?
