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.
