Learn 2 Fish With Us Ices Scouts!!

Captain Greg and BJ of Learn 2 Fish With Us shared their passion for ice fishing with the cub scouts of Neenah.  The Ice fishing clinic took place the evening of February 8th at Spring Hill Elementary, which Is located in Neenah, Wisconsin

The evening started out with the scouts learning the skills and equipment needed to begin ice fishing through Captain Greg’s Ice Fishing Basics seminar.  Ice Fishing Basics teaches; safety while ice fishing, different ice fishing combos, electronics, bait, tip ups and tip downs, augers, how to tie a Clinch and Palomar knot, fish identification and so much more.

Thanks to Learn 2 Fish With Us, each youth received a soft sided tackle bag by Shakespeare, fish identification cards and a fishing educational book.  All scouts also went into a door prize drawing for Shakespeare ice fishing combos and Berkely tip ups.  Everything needed to get out ice fishing!!

On Sunday, February 20th the cub scouts will hit the ice where they will utilize their newly learn skills and use the equipment they received.

Trip To The Mississippi River For Panfish Video

Here is a video from Captain Greg’s trip to the Mississippi River last week to fish for panfish, which included Bluegill, Crappie and Perch.  Captain Greg used his long ice fishing rods from Frabill called the Jiggler with three pound test and a ice jig with a red and white spike.  Greg did start out using plastic but the fish were pretty neutral so he used live bait.  Greg also used tip downs with a small minnows to catch Crappie, Perch, Northern and Largemouth Bass.
