You're thinking right. Start out bass fishing teaching him Texas rig. If not catching any, change it up. His attention span will dictate how long. THANK YOU for teaching another generation. I always take light equipment with perch hooks,bobbers,earthworms,etc. in case the bite is slow or nonexistent when taking young ones. Perch can save a trip in those neighborhood ponds almost every time. Tight lines to y'all.
