Kids today are spending more and more time inside, glued to screens. One of the many things kids are doing less and less these days is going fishing. A pastime of many mid-western kids is becoming a thing of the past. Leaving the question; how do we get kids back into fishing?
That's why in 2015 non-profit group Tomorrow's Anglers created it's Fish Quest Tournament, which was conceived for the sole purpose of promoting fishing through a youth tournament. The tournament is modeled off real professional fishing circuits. A child and his or her parent are paired with a professional angler in a fully rigged boat for a day on the water learning and catching fish. The day concludes with each child coming to a stage with his catch where he will have his fish weighed-in, describe his day in an interview, and hold his catch up for the crowd. This grand scale event promises to be an unforgettable day for each child. Generous prizes have been donated and will be awarded to the children.
The Tomorrow’s Anglers Fish Quest has just opened for registration for this year's event. With will take place on July 12th on Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh. Kids must be between 9 and 17 years old. Also there is slots open for people to be captains. CLICK HERE for more info.
