Rain doesn’t dampen fishing enthusiasm

Despite a weather forecast that looked more disheartening than an empty stringer, the 10th annual Lake Vermilion Take A Kid Fishing event was a rousing success. Over 100 kids hit the lake Wednesday with area guides from the Lake Vermilion Guides League and other volunteers for a great day of fishing.

While rain eventually cut the fishing short, you wouldn’t have known from the results, as the young anglers brought back significant numbers of walleye, perch, and bass, keeping area guides busy in the cleaning shack. The annual event is designed to introduce a new generation of anglers to the sport of fishing. Kids ages 10-15 are eligible, and those who take part learn a lot about rules and regulations as well as helpful tips from area guides on how to fish.
