Kid's Fishing Club

Discussion in 'Northwest Ohio Fishing Reports' started by grdhandyman, Jul 17, 2008.

  1. Just to throw this out to everyone, I am going to try and organize a fishing club/clinic for kids in the area. Try and get them interested in something good!

    That's great that you are doing that. Years ago Myself and several other started a Get a kid hooked on fishing not drugs. We had a fishing tournament once a year with over 200 kids. We received a lot of donations from the locals and Cabelas. Cabelas required that we send them addresses in turn they donated a lot of stuff. I'm not sure if they still do that though. May be worth a try. Good luck in your endeavours.

  5. Get with me if you want some more info.

    When I lived in Ohio I was a certified instructor in the "Hooked on Fishing Not on Drugs" program. We did a fishing derby as well. The ODNR is very helpful. They have pre-rigged rods you can borrow for kids who do not have their own and lots of other things to hand out.

    I am so glad to hear that you are trying this...i was a hunter safty instructor for several years and nothing is more rewarding then seeing a kid, be it male or female with the smiles on their faces. in 5 years of teaching the corse i have only had 1 kid that i could not pass, but was very sucessful. I am in the Archbold Wauseon area and if i can ever be any help with this as a volunteer or just someone to bait a kids hook....i would be ever so greatfull and proud to do it, good luck and get them fishing.
