De Pere Cub Scouts Learn 2 Fish

Learn 2 Fish With Us volunteers Greg, Karen, Nick and Jake hosted a fishing clinic for the De Pere Cub Scouts at a De Pere park, on Sunday, June 11th.  The day may have started of rainy and windy but by the time the fishing clinic started, the rain had passed.  The afternoon started out with Captain Greg presenting his Fishing Basics seminar which teaches attendees on the equipment and skills needed to begin fishing.  Fishing Basic teaches; safety while fishing, spin cast and spinning fishing combos, casting, setting the hook, simple fishing presentations, knots, live and artificial bait, fish identification, aquatic invasive species, catch and release and so much more.  After the seminar, each youth received a fully rigged fishing combo, NPAA Future Pro shirt and Go Fishing educational book thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association,  Future Angler Foundation and Learn 2 Fish With Us.

It may have been cold, but fishing was HOT for bass and bluegills.  Today over one hundred panfish and bass were caught!!  These kids were smiling from ear to ear!!  The scouts already said they plan on doing a lot of fishing this summer!!
