Children reel in fishing tips from the pros

Posted:
EAGLE RIVER (WAOW) -

Children in the Northwoods reeled in some fishing tips from the pros.

Thursday was Eagle River's 32nd annual "Kids Fishing" day.

Fishing guides took the children out on several lakes to teach them the ins and outs of the sport.
The kids and adults say they had a blast.

Elmer Jensen/Fishing Guide: "Hey this is out future here. We are teaching these kids an outdoor experience. We are finding more and more kids these days that don't get that opportunity or that chance to be out and enjoy the water."

Besides fishing, the children also learned about water safety.
