Pond fishing is best, but the water body is not as critical as fishing near where the fish are. Try not to drive real far. Get some small spinners, small Rapalas, size 10 hooks (cricket or Aberdeen), removable slit shot, small bobbers, small worms and spincast gear. Let him try casting his gear before you go. Take plenty of snacks and water. Let him pick either a lure or bait and you fish the other. This will allow you to find what they are biting. http://www.outdooralabama.com/fishing/freshwater/fishingTips.pdf has tips you both may want to read before going. Some kids that age want to keep their fish, so be prepared. Also take a camera.
