Take a Kid Fishing



    It’s Minnesota’s Annual Take a Kid Fishing Weekend this weekend.  Adults who accompany a child fishing this weekend can fish for free, what a deal.  I think anytime an adult takes a kid fishing they should be able to fish for free or maybe even get paid! It’s a lot of work to get ready to fish and much patience is required to fish with kids but it’s definitely worth the effort when you see the smile on a child’s face when he or she reels a fish up out of a lake.

Take-a-Kid Fishing Weekend is June 5-7 (June 2, 2009)

Minnesotans who want to catch some quality family time are encouraged to take advantage of Take-A-Kid Fishing weekend, June 5-7.

Minnesota residents 18 and older can fish for free during these days when they accompany an angler younger than 16.

“Most kids would love to go fishing,” said Mike Kurre, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) mentoring program coordinator. “By eliminating the need for a license on these three days, we’re providing an opportunity for family and friends to try the recreational sport of fishing with a youth and encouraging people to get outdoors, have fun, and discover
the joys of fishing.”
