When Captain Greg asked the youth ‘Have you ever gone fishing?’, not one youth raised their hand. Captain Greg said ‘That is going to change today!!’. This was the second group from the Greater Milwaukee Boys & Girls Club that attended a Learn 2 Fish With Us fishing clinic this summer. The second fishing clinic was held on August 4th, at Smokey’s Musky Shop, on Pewaukee Lake, in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Captain Greg presented his Fishing Basics seminar which taught attendees the skills and equipment needed to begin fishing. Youth learned; 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 the seminar, youth went fishing for almost two hours where they caught Bass, Bluegill’s and perch. All fish were released to fight another day.
Each youth received a fully rigged fishing combo, NPAA Future Pro shirt and fishing educational book thanks to our sponsors!!. These youth were excited as they look forward to using their fishing combos over the summer!!
