This Saturday, after the National Walleye Tour, kids will have the opportunity to learn fishing tips from the pros. The National Professional Anglers Association is hosting a future angler fishing clinic.
The pros will also talk with the kids about safety and invasive species. During the event they will be handing out t-shirts that can be signed by the pros as well as rods and reels. The anglers hope this clinic and the free gifts will get future generations interested in their favorite hobby.
â??The kids can take a rod and reel and go down to the shoreline and go fishing and bring back that good oleâ?? fashioned family fun that we really want to pass on the tradition to the kids,â?? said pro walleye angler Marianne Huskey. â??Hopefully when they get older theyâ??ll be out fishing just like we are.â??
The event takes place in Ludington park harbor at approximately 4:00, after the NWT weigh-in.
