Yesterday we held a fishing clinic at Maplewood Middle School in Menasha, Wisconsin. The cool thing about this clinic was that each of the youth and families attended eight stations where they learned everything from Satey, open/closed fish…ing combos, casting, bait, knots, fishing presentations, musky fishing, aquatic invasive species and more!!! For this clinic I partnered with the City Of Menasha School District, Heckrodt Nature Preseve and Park and Rec department. This event was a huge success due to all the anglers that came a taught the familes on fishing and to all my great sponsors!!!

This past Saturday evening I attended the Woman’s Walleye Weekend dinner where I talked to the woman about the National Professional Anglers Association.  I reviewed the goal of the NPAA to Preserve and Protect our great sport of fishing in a professional manner.  I explained all the good the NPAA is doing to promote fishing to future anglers and the benefits they receive being a member.

On Saturday, Greg kicked off the 2013 Lil Angler fishing event with his ‘Fishing Basics’ seminar in Kaukauna, Wisconsin. It was a brisk day but everyone was attentive as throughout the day I had many questions from both youth and parents on fishing and the seminar. After my seminar the kids were to fish but with the rain and cold the fishing was canceled. The families enjoyed lunch and then after that all the kids received a prize. The group that runs the Lil’ Angler fishing group is a great group of people and made it a very special day for the lil Anglers!!!
