De Pere Cub Scouts Learn 2 Fish With Captain Greg

Captain Greg and the Learn 2 Fish With Us volunteers, hosted a fishing clinic for the De Pere Cub Scouts at a De Pere park on Sunday, June 27th.  The day may have started of raining but by the time the fishing clinic started, the mist had stopped.  The afternoon started out with Captain Greg presenting his Fishing Basics seminar which teaches attendees on the equipment and skills needed to begin fishing.  Fishing Basic teaches; safety while fishing, spin cast and spinning fishing combos, casting, setting the hook, simple fishing presentations, knots, live and artificial bait, fish identification, aquatic invasive species, catch and release and so much more.  After the seminar, each youth was given a fully rigged fishing combo, NPAA Future Pro shirt and Shakespeare fishing educational book thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association and Future Angler Foundation.

Fishing was HOT for bass and bluegills.  Sarah and Martin caught their first and biggest fish of their short fishing careers. They both caught monster bass.  You got to see the pics of the fish.  Today over one hundred panfish were caught and all you could see were smiles all around!!  The scouts have already said they plan on doing a lot of fishing this summer!!
