Getting Kids Outdoors

Here are some groups we work with to help get kids and adults outdoors and fishing.

LGFWSDuluth - Let's Go Fishing With Seniors, Duluth Minnesota Chapter.

North Country Ride - offering therapeutic horse back riding.

REA3D.com - Proctor Rails Endowment for Academic, Art, and Athletic Development

Take-a-Kid Fishing events - We also organize, coordinate and participate in many Take-a-Kid Fishing events, at least two a year.  It's great to be able to introduce and get kids out fishing.

We work with the YWCA, YMCA, and several schools.  Our Take-a-Kid Fishing events are so popular with the kids, we're told it's the most requested trip by students and many teachers as well.  We're glad to help. 

Casting Kids events - as part of the Minnesota B.A.S.S. Federation Nation, we are lucky to have access to the Casting Kids equipment and targets, so we set up at least one event a year during the Proctor Hogshead event.  We have done this the last two years and it's been great introducing kids to casting and fishing. 

Reeling in Kids - we gather used fishing rods, reels and equipment, get them repaired, then get good working fishing gear to kids, by working with local Fire Departments, VFWs, American Legions, etc. 


Helping the Fisheries

Whenever the opportunity comes along we are very happy to help the Fisheries departments of the Minnesota DNR and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services, as well as any organization protecting our fishing opportunities.  Here are a few recent events we have helped organize anglers to assist Fisheries staff and we also participated in. 

Letters of support for numerous DNR projects to protect fishing opportunities, including the Clough Island Project.

2011 MN DNR Study of Emerging Concern - collecting smallmouth and/or largemouth bass from select areas of the St. Louis River harbor, Duluth.  The DNR used a electrofishing boat and got 1 bass, then asked if we local anglers could help.  We collected 7 for them with rod and reel under special permit and in conjunction with the Fisheries staff. 

2011-2012 Fish Lake Advisory Committee for Minnesota DNR. 

2012 U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services Study of Emerging Concern - collecting smallmouth, largemouth bass and suckers from select areas of the St. Louis River harbor, Duluth.  They used a electrofishing boat and nets and got 2 bass and lots of suckers.  We collected 6 for them with rod and reel under special permit and in conjunction with the Fisheries staff.

These studies are important and getting fish to find out what's happening is great.  Hopefully these few bass will lead to the answer to why there are so few bass now, with many stretches with no bass at all, when 10 years ago they were in the harbor in large numbers.
