Kids ice fishing clinic , Frenchtown Pond
« on: Nov 01, 2020, 09:33 PM »
I'm putting the kids clinic together for this year.
Last Sat in January if I can get it OKed with FWP and the Health Dept.
Should be able to social distance I would think.
Will post more info as I get it.
Sure missed having it last year.

Excited to help out this year!
The man banging on the door yelled "Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms"... I just assumed it was more supplies.

Great idea. Easy to distance when out on the ice, plus give the kids a chance to have some plain ol' fun for once while learning a lifetime sport. Minnesota not issuing permits this year for any type of ice or fish gathering.  >:(

Thanks for checking Mike.  I know a 4 year old that's itching to get on the ice!

Is there an event for this on Facebook or elsewhere? I'd love to share it with the local Cub Scout Packs. We're all itching for something outside to do this winter. The social distancing stuff has really put a damper on our regular events.

Not to many responses to the ice fishing clinic.
Does it need to be put back down?.
Have only had a few posts and one phone call.
I know of 10 kids for sure, or  showed interest.
