28th Annual Kids Fishing Day Is A Huge Success!!

On Saturday, June 8th Learn 2 Fish With Us, Karen and I traveled up to Manistique, Michigan and the Hiawatha National Forest to be part of the Camp 7 Lake’s 28th Kids Fishing Day.  We had over three hundred youth attend the event on a fine sunny day!!  We have been a part of this event for the last four years.  The first year we attended this event, the organizers enjoyed us bringing in our fishing educational stations to the event.  This year we added live bait to our fishing educational booth and it was a huge success.  The live bait included big sucker minnows, large fatheads, rosy reds, night crawlers and of course leeches. They were so excited to see them and hold them!! Our booth also consisted of the Learn 2 Fish With Us Pop-Up Banners for fish identification, safety on the water and knot tying.  We had a hands on knot tying and casting station education, where we worked with the youth.  Other stations at the event were a  trout pond where kids could catch trout, Aquatic Invasive Species, casting contest, fly casting and more!!  Learn 2 Fish With Us appreciated the volunteers that were provided to us by the U.S. Forest Service.  Thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association for providing fishing combos and a couple hundred NPAA Future Pro shirts.  Many of the youth asked Captain Greg to sign their shirts.
