It was the hottest day so far in 2023, and so was the fishing for the eighth graders of South Park Middle School of Oshkosh. Eighth graders went fishing with Captain Greg and volunteers of Learn 2 Fish With Us at Menominee Park on May 30th. Over eighty students, were split into four groups, and attended one of four fishing sessions which lasted an hour and a half. Captain Greg and crew from Learn 2 Fish With Us shared their passion for fishing by educating them on fishing, and then took them fishing.
Students learned the skills and equipment need to begin fishing such as; safety while fishing, spin cast and spinning fishing combos, how to cast, different fishing presentations, fish identification, knots, live and artificial bait, aquatic invasive species, keeping a fishing log and so much more. After each seminar, students went fishing for an hour. Fishing was awesome and the students caught largemouth bass, bluegill, perch, rock bass and bullheads!! You should have seen all the smiles!!
Each student received a NPAA Future Pro shirt thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association and Future Angler Foundation.
