Local events

Have you always wanted to learn how to fish, but didn't have anyone to teach you? Or maybe you love fishing and want a chance to learn more and practice your skills. The "School of Fish" Day Camp will be a great time for brand new fishers and experienced fishers as well!

"School of Fish" is presented by Hannay's Marine - It is a kids fishing class taught by pro angler and fishing TV show host Mike Frisch. Students learn about lakes, finding fish in those lakes, and some great ways to catch them. They also learn to tie a fishing knot and rig and use a slip-bobber setup. One youth graduate is drawn from all 2021 School of Fish graduates to be a guest on Fishing the Midwest TV!

Youth will receive a rod and reel, a Hannay's Marine School of Fish t-shirt, a tackle box and tackle, a School of Fish full color workbook, and snacks (if you have dietary restrictions, please note that on the registration). Most importantly, however, graduates leave class with the knowledge, skills, and equipment to go fishing!


  • School of Fish Day Camp is open to youth (and adults!) who have completed grade 3 and older.
  • One adult is invited to attend with a child at no additional charge, provided they share one equipment packet.
