On Saturday, September 8th, Learn 2 Fish With Us volunteers educated and took families fishing during the Snooze In The Zoo event. The event was held at the Menominee Park Zoo which is located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Families attending this event were able to camp in the Menominee Park Zoo.
One of the events during Snooze In The Zoo, was for families to experience fishing which was hosted by us, Learn 2 Fish With Us. The afternoon started out by Captain Greg educating the families on the fishing equipment and skills needed to begin fishing. The campers learned safety while fishing, fishing combos, different fishing presentations, fish identification and the AIS message of ‘Clean Drain Dry’.

Thanks to Learn 2 Fish With Us sponsors not only are we able to educate future anglers but also provide equipment for them to continue to fish.
