FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The day may have been cold with gusty winds, but that did not stop the Oaklawn Elementary fourth graders from going fishing with Captain Greg and volunteers of Learn 2 Fish With Us. Captain Greg held three fishing sessions for the fourth graders. Each session started out by educating the students on the skills and equipment needed to begin fishing through our Fishing Basics seminar. After the Fishing Basics seminar, the fourth graders had the opportunity to fish for just over an hour in each session, where they caught bluegills, bass, perch and bullheads. Jason Swaney of the Wisconsin DNR, talked with the kids and helped them fish during the final session of the day. The fishing sessions were held at Menominee Park, which is located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on Wednesday, May 24th.
Each student received a NPAA Future Pro shirt thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association and Future Angler Foundation. Learn 2 Fish With Us provided a fishing educational book.
Greg would like thank his and Learn 2 Fish With Us sponsor’s which include: National Professional Anglers Association, Shakespeare, Mercury Marine, Berkley, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund, The Boat Doc, Lake Poygan Sportsman’s Club, Dave’s Musky Club, Off Shore Tackle Company, Northland Tackle, TTI Blakemore Fishing Group, Maui Jim, WowGee, Future Angler Foundation and Pioneer Marina.
