Award the Mom In Your Life With Time On The Water

Take Mom Out On The Water

Let the water inspire you this Mother’s Day to craft a gift she’ll never forget – her own cruise, hosted by her loving child. Whether you take out your own boat, hers, or rent a craft to give this special gift, make the day extra special by filling it with smaller gifts throughout.

What to Wear

Help keep her hair out of her face and her hair perfect by giving your mom a nautical-inspired scarf or hat. She can wear it for the first time on the excursion. Look for ideas on Pinterest where users post photos and shopping information from a plethora of stores.

Music Makes the Day

Create a custom playlist with Mother’s Day-related songs mixed in often. If she’s a country music fan, Kenny Chesney’s “Boats (Mother’s Day 2010 mix)” is a must. Rap fans might like Tupac’s “Dear Mama,” while pop fans gravitate toward Christina Aguilera’s “Oh Mother.” Even hard rock has a couple of selections like Ozzy Osbourne’s “Mama I’m Coming Home,” and Pink Floyd’s “Mother.” Every music genre has at least one special song dedicated to mom.

Pack a Picnic

Even if you’re not a chef, you can pack a delicious lunch or dinner for the woman who gave you life. Pick up lunch from a local deli or order take out to go. Take a few cans of Sterno and a lighter with you to warm the food at any picnic spot. What’s on the menu? Your mother’s favorite dishes, of course.

A Boating Gift

Buy your mama a special gift for her boat. A truly thoughtful gift makes it easier for her to enjoy the water and the boat. An auto deploy anchor helps take the hard work out of exploring new areas and mooring her craft. Auto deploy means she won’t have any heavy lifting to do. Other ideas include an awning or umbrella to shade her adventures. Thoughtful gifts make her time on the water more comfortable and enjoyable.

Your Presence

Spending quality time with her child or children tops the list of special gifts you can give your mom this Mother’s Day. Set aside a few hours for time with her. Turn off your cell phone. Take a few photos with a camera. Ask about her life. Talk to her about her favorite things. Smile. Say “please” and “thank you,” and “yes ma’am” or “no ma’am.” Regardless of the tangible gifts you buy her, the time she spends with you will be the thing she most remembers.

Mother’s Day comes once a year, but the person it honors deserves our appreciation and praise daily. Give your mother a day to remember with gifts to help her commemorate it. Every time she wears that scarf or drops anchor, she’ll recall her special day on the water with her child.

Introduce a Kid to Fishing

Pass on Fishing to A Future Generation

For those of us lucky enough to have been introduced to fishing as a kid, there are very few memories that are as joyful as remembering those days spent fishing with a parent or grandparent. If you analyze the value of an early fishing education, you can recognize some of these positive lessons you learned:

Patience

The act of sitting still, listening, watching and studying the environment around you is fast becoming a lost art. Fishing teaches you to be patient. There’s much to be said about having the ability to sit quietly and listen and observe. People who learned these skills early from fishing tend to be successful in their respective fields.

Sportsmanship

A good fisherman teaches his students to follow the rules of fishing. Never fish out of season. Always release undersized catches and never exceed your fishing limits. Today, more and more kids are taught fishing using catch-and-release rules. This teaches them that the fun of fishing is not only in the hook-up and landing but also in the act of letting the fish go to be caught another day.

Boating

It’s never too early to teach kids about how to use boats and boating equipment as part of a fishing education. Boat safety, operation and navigation learned while fishing at an early age will stay with kids for the rest of their lives.

Let them help with the boat winches and trailer winches as you ease your boat down the ramp into the water. Understanding the mechanical principles of boat winches and trailer winches at an early age can help them later in life in other areas.

By the time we reach adulthood, most fishermen know the real pleasure of fishing is getting out on the water and enjoying nature in its rawest form. Wading in a trout stream searching for that big rainbow is a joy in itself regardless if we ever land one or not. No other sport surrounds you with the wonders of the ocean, mountain vistas or the simple beauty of a lake in a city park.

Companionship

The bond formed between a kid and an adult when they are learning to fish will usually last a lifetime. The memory of waiting for your cork bobber to jerk below the water’s surface while eating a bag lunch mom packed for you and dad are the memories you’ll want to pass on to your own kids someday. Or how about the fishing stories told to you as you waited for the fish to bite. The joy of simple companionship learned as a young fisherman will abide you well as you travel through life.

Competition

Fishing itself is a competition whenever two people or more fish together. Who doesn’t want to catch the most and biggest fish in the group? Fishing teaches kids that competition is good and can be fun, especially when you catch more fish than your teacher.
