New Anglers Introduced To Fishing At The Urban American Outdoors Fishing Derby

On Saturday, June 29th, Learn 2 Fish With Us our volunteers traveled to Washington Park which is located in  Milwaukee, Wisconsin and partnered up with Urban American Outdoors for a fishing derby.  Learn 2 Fish With Us and are volunteers were there to educate the derby contestants on the skills needed to become better fisherman.  We taught them about water safety,  fish identification, knot tying and fish identification.  While they were fishing we helped them fish, and you should have seen all the smiles!!  For the Sobiech family the day started out by Renee picking up her sister Trina and her daughter Alesha.  They made their way to the Urban American Outdoor fishing derby where they met Captain Greg.  He helped them setup a Shakespeare fishing combo that they picked up at a local retailer along with line, hook, and a bobber.  Captain Greg helped setup their fishing combo so they could fish.  Five minutes later Alesha found Captain Greg and asked if he could help them fish.  Captain Greg said sure and they worked on casting and then went fishing.  On her first cast the bobber went down but Alesha did not set the hook and the fish was off.  After a couple more cast Alesha caught her first fish on her lifetime a bluegill.  She then went on to catch a bullhead to.  Alesha was excited and Renee, Trina and Alesha look forward to going fishing in the future!!
