Learn 2 Fish With Us partnered with the Fox Crossings and Neenah Park & Recreation to host a fishing clinic for the families that lived in the communities. Captain Greg and volunteers shared their passion for fishing on Wednesday, June 7th, at Doty Park, which is located in Neenah, Wisconsin.
The morning started out with the youth and families attending our Fishing Basics seminar which teaches them about the skills and equipment needed to begin fishing, which includes: safety while fishing, how to use a spin cast and spinning fishing combo, how to cast safely and accurately, live and artificial bait, how to tie a Clinch and Palomar knot, fish identification, aquatic Invasive species and so much more. After the seminar each of the youth received a fully rigged spin cast fishing combo, Future Pro Shirt and fishing educational book. Then it was time for the youth and families to go fishing with the help of the Learn 2 Fish With Us volunteers. You would not believe all the fish that were caught!! Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Rock Bass, Bluegill, Catfish made up the youths catch!! The smiles were endless. Captain Greg got four youth to hold their first fish ever. How cool is that!!
