When an organization contacts Learn 2 Fish With Us, Captain Greg works with them to determine the best fishing clinic for them. A fishing clinic will always start out with a fishing seminar, which will provide education on the skills and equipment needed to begin or advance in fishing. If there is additional time, youth will attend hands on education stations which would consist of casting, knot tying and so much more. If water is nearby, or group will host a field trip to water, youth will go fishing from shore with Captain Greg and Learn 2 Fish With Us volunteers.
Learn 2 Fish With Us host three different seminars. The first seminar is ‘Fishing Basics’ which educates youth, families and adults to all the skills and equipment need to begin fishing. ‘Fishing Basics’ educates attendees on; safety while fishing, spin cast and spinning fishing combos, casting safely and accurately, basic fishing presentations, knots, fish identification, parts of a fish, live and artificial bait and aquatic invasive species and so much more.
The second seminar is ‘Beyond The Basics’ which allows youth and adults to build upon the fishing education learned in the ‘Fishing Basic’ seminar. Attendees will learn about advanced skills and equipment such as: bait caster and line counter reels, advanced fishing presentations of jigging / casting / trolling, jigs and plastics, crankbaits, how a graph works, fish marks, maps, filleting a fish and cooking of the fish.
The third seminar is ‘Ice Fishing Basics’ which educates youth, families and adults to all the skills and equipment need to begin ice fishing. ‘Ice Fishing Basics’ educates attendees on; safety while ice fishing, augers, ice fishing combos, ice fishing jigs and spoons, tip ups, tip downs, knots, fish identification, live and artificial bait and aquatic invasive species.
