Family Fun with Rocket Fishing Rod Review and Giveaway #ad

*I was provided free items to review for this post. The opinions expressed are my own. #ad

Living in Northern California we have the privilege of so many beautiful places to go fishing. We have tried for the last few years to hone in my son's fishing skills. I can recall trips with my own Dad fishing on lakes from shore and from a boat, I treasure those memories. With my own son it has been a bit more chaotic, is it me the teacher or him the student of this sport of patience I am not sure lol. BUT I do know I have the fear of him hooking me or himself in the face or body as he casts in his wild child fashion. It makes my heart sad watching him struggle as he hooks trees as he casts backwards or when the line and rig fall to the ground when he flips the rod before casting.

This summer we saw an ad on TV as we were watching morning cartoons together for "Rocket Fishing Rod by Goliath Games". He jumped up and ran to the TV declaring this was the fishing pole he needed, even though I had just bought him a Star Wars R2D2 one. This may be one of the few times I agreed with my son that we do indeed need the item we saw on the commercial.

When the Rocket Fishing Rod arrived the whole family was excited to try it!! We started our fishing journey trying to find a new place to test out the pole. We drove to a nearby town only to discover the lake was closed and no fishing allowed. We did not let that discourage our excitement and drove to another town where my husband grew up to try a pond where he fished as a kid. We picked up my Mother in Law along the way and made it a family trip.

My husband reminisced about his childhood adventures at the park and pond as he told stories to our son. I think that is my favorite part of fishing, the time spent together and the stories shared. The biggest relief was using the Rocket Fishing Rod for my son to cast with. There was no flinging of the rod and line, no twirling around of the hook as he walked around, the hook and bait are encased in a capsule that it loaded into the rocket. So easy to use and much safer!

Not only is the Rocket Fishing Rod safer to use with kids it is literally a blast to use. We had fun taking turns loading it up and rocket launching the line into the pond. We all gave it a try and enjoyed it. Even my Mother in law had fun using it.

When you cast it, blast it with the Rocket Fishing Rod, the kids fishing rod that accurately casts its line up to 30 feet. Great for kids of all ages, because it replaces standard kids fishing poles and takes the hassle out of fishing. Just pump, launch and reel in real fish! A safety bobber keeps the hook enclosed until it hits the water, and it all but eliminates snarls and snags. Once the bobber is in the water, the lure/bait compartment opens to drop the lure/bait to the desired depth. Made with hi-tech precision engineering, the patented design and rugged ABS construction will stand up tough to outdoor use.  Recommended for ages 8 and up. More than 1 million sold.
System Content:
  • Rocket Fishing Rod
  • 1 Safety Bobber
  • 2 Hooks
  • 150 feet of 8-pound Test Fishing Line
  • 2 Line Stops
  • 1 Weight
  • Complete Instructions

We did not catch a fish this time around, it was more than likely due to us disturbing the fish with casting over and over for the fun of it. I am sure next time we can relax and leave the bobber and bait in for a while. We are looking forward to cooler Fall weather to spend the day fishing.

This is a fun toy for kids to use as an intro to fishing. My son would get frustrated and a tad bored with the requirements of regular fishing. I think in time he can have back his classic rod and reel but for now I love seeing him smile as he is blasting and reeling in with his Rocket Rod. We are building positive memories that we can all enjoy!
