On Saturday May 19th, Captain Greg and Karen instructed youth on how to cast at the Sturgeon Bay Bass Open Kids Fishing Day and you could hear the youth saying they Got One!! Which was a Backyard Bass!! Prior to the second days tournament weigh-ins, it was time for the kids to improve there fishing skills and play fun games where they could win cool prizes. Learn 2 Fish With Us had a booth setup with their pop-up banners which instructed youth and parents on safety while fishing, how to tie different knots and fish identification. Our main attraction was casting instruction where the kids had the opportunity to catch Backyard Bass when they had a good cast. There were many kids that casted for their first time and you should have seen how excited the kids got, but the parents I think, were even more excited. We also helped kids that knew how to cast, become more accurate at casting.
Thanks to the NPAA many of the kids went home with a fishing combo or NPAA Future Pro short.
