Learn 2 Fish With Us Fish Camp A Success!!

With smiles on every camper’s face, you knew that the Learn 2 Fish With Us / Camp Tapawingo Fish Camp was a success!!   Fish Camp was held at Camp Tapawingo, which is located in Mischicot, Wisconsin on June 20th.  Fish Camp was held for youth that ranged from five years old to ten years old.

Fish Camp started out with Captain Greg hosting his Fishing Basics seminar which taught campers the skills and equipment needed to begin fishing.  Fishing Basics taught campers; safety while fishing, how to use a spin cast and spinning fishing combo, how to cast safely and accurately, how to tie fishing knots, live and artificial baits, aquatic Invasive species, keeping a fishing log and so much more!!

Next the Campers were split into three groups and attended fishing hands on education stations which included; how to cast safely and accurately, fish identification and knot tying.  Casting they learned how to look behind them along with the ten and two method utilizing Backyard Bass.  Knot tying station they learned and tied a Clinch and Palomar knot.  At the Fish Identification station campers learned how to tell each fish from each other, regulations along with what bait they prefer.

Campers then had lunch.  After lunch it was time for the youth to go fishing!!  It was a challenging fishing spot as there was current in the creek along with trees all over.  The campers accepted the challenge and yes there was some fishing gear lost.  Each camper caught at least one fish!!  How cool is that??  The entire catch was made up of dace, which is a larger minnow.    Youth just want to catch fish!!

Thanks to the Future Angler Foundation and Learn 2 Fish With Us each camper received a fully rigged fishing combo, Future Pro short and fishing educational book.
