Squirrel Fishing

All year round squirrel fishing

Reel it in nice and easy. Gotta move real slow, he’s gonna nab it! Nah! He scampered away! Stop, rest and offer your squirrel friend some sunflower seeds, this may be a friendship pact that might prove to assist in reeling him in later.

Prepare Squirrel Fishing Pole

If you don’t have a regular fishing pole to attach a shelled peanut, use a long stick and attach some string to one end and tie on the shelled peanut. It’s a new fangled way to get close to those little fellows, but never close enough to pet them, because they’re still wild!

Right or Left Brain Squirrels

After observing individual squirrels, most squirrels are right-brain dominant. If squirrels, like humans, are guided by right, left brain theories, it’s simple which one to ‘hook’ onto. If squirrel is a left-brainer, he’ll know to bite into the string and free the peanut, but if he’s a right-brainer, he might stand up on his hind legs and try to get the shelled peanut off the stick. It’s great fun to watch him and he trails along after it for the longest time and never tires.

Endless entertainment for squirrels and humans

Squirrel fishing is fun all year long! Although both ‘fisherman’ and squirrel prefer the spring and summer months, it’s a healthy, no-fat diet exercise for the squirrel and endless entertainment for you and your family, all year round! Begin preparing your sign to read: Gone Fishing for ‘right-brain’ squirrels!
