Is my four year old ready to go smallmouth fishing with me?

It is my opinion that your four year old is going to be able to enjoy a fishing trip at this age. If you go in a boat, just make sure they have on a life jacket. The bonding that occurs at such an early age with fishing is something your child will always remember. It isn’t going to matter if they catch anything at all. What is going to be important is that quality time that the two of you get to spend with each other.
I went fishing with my dad and grandpa from an early age. I guess that may be why I enjoy it so much. I have taken my own kids since they were small. You do have to remember though that a four year old isn’t going to have the patience for all day fishing. Do it for a few hours at a time so that both of you will really like what takes place.
